Hey all! 

I was bummed there was no easy way to leave my helmet with my bike when out on a ride and I wanted to go to a restaurant or something, so I started thinking on how to solve the issue.  I've looked around and found a couple solutions out there, one of which is over $100 USD!  This also was a separate lock and a cable that I had to lug around.

So I started tinkering, and came up with a solution.  These hooks mount to an existing bolt under the seat and the D-ring simply slides over the hook and with the seat back on and locked, the helmet is secure!  This took me quite a bit of time getting all the measurements just right and I am very happy with the result.

Here are some pics of the hooks and how they mount and work.

I'm asking $20 USD per pair shipped in US and international will just have to pay actual shipping.

What a great solution, simple and easy. Beats bringing a top box or other cable type systems. I知 using a $1,100 CDN Carbon System 7 helmet by Schubert, and like you, want a simple system. My old Honda VFR had a simple d-ring shaped lock under seat for same. Good old BMW, missing a simple item from an otherwise great bike!
Where you located in US? I may opt to buy from you, I知 on west coast, in Vancouver, BC Canada. :047:

It痴 3D printed with ABS and is solid.  These things are strong.
