The Heavy Duty ADV Lock is perfect for those times when you want a formidable theft deterrent. This large-diameter (8mm) cable lock is bigger and stronger than our Compact ADV Lock, but it coils up smaller than a Steelcore Strap, making it a great solution for long-range travel.
Secure your bags before leaving your bike unattended, or keep these installed while riding. They cinch down tight, letting you ride without fear of snags, or prying hands at border crossings and stoplights.
The unique cinch-able cable tightens around the outside of your bag, securing the roll-top and making installation easy, no matter how much (or little) you packed. It also seamlessly integrates with the locking bar found on our Backcountry series bags, a feature that makes it impossible for someone to yank the cable off the roll-top and gain access to your stuff. The bag is also simultaneously locked to the bike, when you pass the lock through your rack, grab handle, or bike frame.
Our ADV locks are made from cut-resistant steel cable, with a bright blue PVC coating for visibility and corrosion resistance. There isn’t a motorcycle luggage lock out there that can stop a determined thief, but visible deterrents will encourage them to pick a different target. The Heavy Duty ADV Lock employs a special high-security key system, and each lock comes with two keys. Contact us for additional spares.
It’s also rugged enough for securing your entire motorcycle in a pinch. Lock the front wheel to your frame or crash bar, or secure the bike to a post. For situations like this, multiple Heavy Duty ADV Locks can even be daisy-chained together to create one long cable.
The Heavy Duty ADV Lock is sold in two lengths: 5ft (1.5M) and 6ft (1.9M), and we recommend ordering the following quantities:

My main reason for buying 4 x 4.5’ locks, is to secure luggage on my Mosko Moto Rackless 80 pannier system. I wanted to prevent the opportunistic thief, from taking something, when my bike is left on the ferry or a stop for a cafe en-route. However, what really appealed to me, is the flexibility of these locks. You can thread through sleeves of jackets and helmet to secure to bike, even secure bike to lamppost etc. for short term use. Also they have multiple uses. As a keen eBike cyclist, these can be used for this hobby plus potentially back packing rucksacks as well. Very light and compact, great that the keys are matching if you buy multiple locks at the same time. Very happy with my purchase as I am with all my Mosko Moto products.
