...just don't have unrealistic expectations. This isn't going to stop someone with the sole intention of stealing a board from stealing your board. I cheap pair of snips, or even a strong amount of force will break this thing.

It WILL provide a deterrence, and it will prevent some punk kid from stealing your board on a whim (no one has cutters with them on a whim).

Would I buy it again? Probably not. I bought it b/c I was only a few bucks away from free shipping, so the price difference between this and shipping on my order was negligible. It is lightweight, unobtrusive, so you really don't know it's there. I used it a few times. For what it set me back, I'm happy with it.

But I would not recommend getting this as a "lock it and forget it" solution. Always be somewhere where you can at least have eyes on your board.


The technines use nuts and bolts to attach the straps to the baseplate. These use sort of a protruded cylinder that fits into a socket when you insert the strap up through the bottom of the binding. However, you could just drill a hole in these straps to use the nut and bolt method of attachment. Hope this helps.


I'm 6'3" 205, and I used to ride an Option Supercharger 168 back in the day. It was great for powder days and steep groomers, but a little on the heavy side, not great for spinning at all. So, I got a Forum Team 160, and I like it OK, but it gets sketchy at higher speeds, and definitely can't handle pow like the Option could. I wish I would have gone somewhere in between the 160 and 168, which is right at a 164. My next board will be this one (T.Rice 164) or the Never Summer Legacy (similar board, slightly less stiff than this one, also a rocker) in the 164 range.

So, at your weight, I would recommend the 164. Just my $.02
