Those locks are effective. Thieves walk up and take easy stuff to steal. They aint gonna be carrying bolt cutters when there are plenty of unlocked snowboards to steal. They aint gonna take the bindings off, cause there are a lot of people around base areas and that would be obvious.
People that steal other people's things are losers that can't support their drug habits or whatever their expenses are.
Becareful leaving your board near parking lots, gondolas or anywhere were the thief has an easy escape. Keep records of the serial number, cause if someone is busted and your board was reported stolen you could get it back. The serial number can identify it.
IT AINT EAZY BEIN STEEZY
