    If you're like me, you're sick of not having a place to keep your helmet when you're stopped out on the trail. I got fed up to where I made a bunch of prototypes & now a final mold for producing a simple solution. The Helmet Hook. It's a lightweight Injection Molded Nylon bracket. The Helmet Hook has 3 openings for running Zip-Ties through it, to secure to your bike. My personal favorite location has been mounting it to the upper fork tube, between the upper and lower triple clamps. It's out of the way while riding, yet in a perfectly accessible spot while stopped. I've got friends using these from here all the way out to Washington. All of them LOVE them. They're not twisting their mirrors, their $$$ helmets aren't slipping off their seats. Such a great thing, that I'm mad I hadn't made these sooner.

    Right now, I've got a few colors on hand, with more on the way. Currently available colors are:
    Black, White, Red, Yellow, and Orange.
    Future Colors: Blue, Green, Pink, ???

    If you'd like to check out more on them, check out: www.Helmet-Hook.com.

    Prices are as follows:
    $9.99 Each (Including 3 Zip-Ties for mounting)
    Shipping (Cont. 48 states) is $5.00 for the 1st Helmet Hook & $0.050 for each additional Helmet Hook
    Shipping (AK & HI) is $6.00 for 1st Helmet Hook & $0.050 for each additional Helmet Hook.

    If you'd like to order any up, I have everything all setup at www.Helmet-Hook.com. Just pick color & quantity you'd like. If you'd like to avoid paypal, please PM me.

    If you've got any questions, feel free to ask.

    Thanks for looking & Stop dropping your helmet!

    Orders/Payments received. Let me know if you received the automated order confirmations. I ran all the tests I could in "test mode" with the site, but want to make sure that it's all working well Live.

    Thanks,

    Everything all shipped out this morning. You should all see them in the next couple days.

    This next week I'll be sorting out some better colorant to get the Blue\Green\Pink hooks. We've got some in house, but the results were less than stellar. I'll post up here and on the site when I get them.

    Much nicer than putting a helmet on a bug gut covered mirror.

    Kudos.

    Have you considered making one with an optional locking system, for parking the bike in town? Maybe just something we can loop a small padlock through?

    I just ordered a couple as well.......got tired of watching my GFs expensive helmet bounce of the ground. Ive always said "set it on the ground, its going to end up there anyways"......maybe I can stop lecturing thanks to a $5 hunk of plastic.

    I have my KLR tore apart right now.....here is your hook on my BMW G650GS. I had a mount for a fuel bottle on the rear pannier so I just ziptied it to that.....works great.
