I think he's talking about the locks.
I kinda like them. one on the factory lock is a pain. Two is even harder. Don't even try if they are full face.
what do you do with the brackets when not in use? put them in a pocket? leave them on? Then the key. all my keys are on separate key chains. Two vehicles two bikes, house and mail key. Take what I'm going to be riding that day and go. Dont want to be looking like a janitor with a wod of keys.
Sorry got side tracked. Their pretty cool. If I didn't have stiletto ends on mine I'd think about those

I keep them on my bike all the time. They are great especially if you have a saddle bags cause they cover the locks. I usually set the helmet on the mirror then lock it in. FYI..You don't really need the slides you can just use the hook on the helmet.

I use the slides and I also use them through the loop on my jacket to hang my jacket off the handle bars. I think there's some pics in my album.:bigthumbsup:

People ask all the time what they are.
Here ya go

The hook doesn't permanently hang, you put it on to secure the helmet. Then take it off when you're done.

huff is talking about tha bags covering the factory helmet lock.
:bigthumbsup:

The only issue I've had with the locks is the key... The keys are REALLY bad about separating from the piece that goes on the key ring. I used some JB weld puddy and pressed it on the flat piece to hold the circle key.

I almost got stuck with the key separated but luckily I had a back up with me.;)

Yep, they just bolt on with... as I recall 3 allan screws... couldn't be easier!!
two of the screws will have to be ground down. The screws were too long for the throttle side and wouldn't let the throttle move freely. Wasn't that big of a problem.:bigthumbsup:

I have had those on my bike now for two years. I really like them and use them all of the time. Plus they look better.
