Blake Mills, an avid cyclist and entrepreneur, came up with The Helmet Lock, a simple little cable that secures your helmet to your U-lock or cable lock, saving you the hassle of having to carry it around when you park your bike.
You simply slip the big loop through a small or medium vent in your helmet, then loop it through your lock. Ã‚Â The rubber-coated nut holds your helmet securely. Ã‚Â Simple concept, solid execution. Ã‚Â He sent us a couple to check out and they’re very nice and very easy to use. Ã‚Â They’re now permanent accessories on the U-locks we use.
The Helmet Lock stores itself by double looping onto the lock. Ã‚Â Click the images to enlarge and see how it works. Ã‚Â For the weight weenies, there’s a pic of it on a scale after the break…
The Helmet Lock is $12.95 for one or $19.95 for two, and you can order directly from their website.
