Product Spotlight: Lockstraps Locking Tie-Downs

Locking carabiners and a steel cable inside the strap keeps your bike secure.

Published on 04.10.2014

Lockstraps are lockable tie-downs that have a steel cable running through the inside. They allow you to secure your bike with tie-downs without having to use additional locks or chains. Lockstraps use a combination lock built into sturdy carabiner attachments so you don’t need to carry around extra keys. The Lockstraps are a convenient way to secure your bike while it’s being transported and the locking ends ensure your straps won’t pop off like typical “S” hook tie-downs.

Lockstraps can also be used when you are out on the road. Use them to lock up your helmet and jacket while you make a stop in a restaurant or lock several bikes together at night. You can even use them as a strong tow strap when a bike becomes disabled.


Lockstraps are not the strongest lock you can buy, but they can only be cut with heavy-duty tools. They are resilient enough to deter most thieves. Their high-quality industrial-strength construction have a max load of 1,200 pounds each, so you’ll feel confident they won’t snap when transporting or towing a heavy Adventure Bike.

We like the multi-purpose nature of the Lockstraps. They allow you to consolidate the number of items you carry and provide peace of mind with their added security and strength.

Through his 20’s and 30’s he competed in off-road desert races, including the Baja 250, 500 and 1000. Eventually, his proclivity for exploration led him to dual sport and adventure riding. Rob’s never-ending quest to discover what’s around the next bend has taken him on Adventures in Latin America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and throughout the American West.
