Steelcore Luggage Locking Strap (Single Strap)

Our Steelcore Locking Strap protects your bag from would-be thieves. It locks the bag to the bike and locks the roll-top closed with a single strap, providing peace of mind when your bike is unattended for a short period, for example at border crossings.

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.

Steel core locking strap

Well made multiuser piece of kit. Use it for locking your soft luggage, riding gear to the bike or the bike to something solid.

Looks like they are well constructed!

Good quality straps...have not used them yet, but quite confident they will serve my needs well!

MOSKO MOTO. Thank you!!!!!!!

I am riding a BMW R1200GS. I used a resin vario case and a top case. However, even if it is made variable and large, luggage does not enter much. Therefore, we were considering an aluminum pannier case.
According to various investigations, when the aluminum pannier case fell and fell, the distortion lid did not close, and I watched it on YouTube when it leaked rain. When I was looking for it, I knew about MOSKO, who is an OEM for BMW.
I bought backcountries 35 and 25 and duffle back 40. My wife and two camping equipment were all in. Great! Perfect waterproof. The Beavertail was packed with more things and an ax. MSR water tank is also included. Everything has entered. Moreover, it feels lighter than the BMW Vario case and the loading is about twice. Even if it falls, it does not distort like an aluminum pannier case. it's the best.
Now I will go touring again in Hokkaido.
Thanks to MOSKO MOTO. Thank you!

Strap Slides Thru Locking Mechanism

Had these straps for a little while now and have used them half a dozen times. Sadly I am not total convinced by them. I would like to hear from someone from the company to see if this issue is unique to me but the locking mechanism locks and the straps can be pulled through while locked. There isn't much security in these if this is how they are meant to operate.
