This handy cable is a great complement to the Harley-Davidson Helmet Lock. Slide one end through your jacket sleeve or luggage, hook the loops at the end of the cable onto the Helmet Lock and attach it to your bike. And, if your helmet does not have D-rings, you can pass the cable through your helmet's chin piece, loop the ends through your Helmet Lock and lock it to your bike. Now your jacket, luggage and helmet are locked to your bike. When you're finished, it will recoil back to its original length and will slip easily into your pocket. The cable is made from 3mm thick nickel plated steel cable, is only 4.5 inches (11cm) long when coiled, stretches up to 6ft (180 cm) and has a load capacity of 200 lbs (100 kg).
