Steelcore Locking Straps are made from Steel Encased Webbing – heavy duty webbing wrapped around a braided steel cable – which is significantly harder to clip than steel cable alone. They feature a locking aluminum cam buckle which can be tightened but not loosened, so you can cinch the strap tight around your bag.
As with all security systems, the Locking Strap is intended as a deterrent. A determined thief with the right tools and enough time will eventually get in. The Locking Strap simply makes their job more difficult.
The Locking Strap is available in two lengths: 4.5' and 6'. Choose the correct length and number of straps for your luggage system below. Please refer to the 'Videos' tab above for mounting instructions. Note that your order may use varying key codes.

I love this bag. It holds so much gear and is so tough. I took it out to Sturgis this year on my 2011 Harley Heritage Classic.
Locking strap operated just as expected. Easy to use and no operational problems!
I really love the bags and the straps. You did not ship the straps in the original shipment but recover nicely. Thanks! One other minor thing the packages came to my office and did not have my name on them. It caused a little confusion. They had our company name twice ???
Hi Pet & Team,
I just wanted to give you an honest review on the steel cable locking straps that I purchased earlier in the year. I didn’t want to give a review till I used them on my Alaska adventure.
After a week of rain,cold and windy first week, I decided to stay in a hotel one night and that’s when they were tested! The thief tryed to cut through The locking strap and didn’t get to far till his blade hit the cable, I wish I could see the expression on his face when he hit the cable, but maybe it was best I wasn’t there!!😁
So I have a half inch cut in the nylon strap and it’s starting to unravel.
Thank you for a great product!!!
My soft bags on my Harley Softail Heritage Classic are now secured. The thieves had better bring some serious tools to get into them now.
