Yep, that sounds about right. But keep in mind that to use the lock station you need to have a binding insert exposed. Unfortunately I don't on my new board so I can't use the lock station. Regardless, the Python lock can still be used the same as a conventional lock of course.

locks are for honest people... if someones wants to steal something they probably will or at least try to. that being said someone that's going to steal a snowboard or skiis from a hill are going to want to do it quickly so, if it's locked they'll likely go on to the next board that's not locked so they can just take it and go.

buy a lock, ride with it and use it when you're not riding. A lot of the retractable cable locks for snowboards are pretty much the same as any other retactable cable lock you can get.

That's a good point. My Forum board has the I-lock system on it so the lock station will not work on that board but the python cable will still do the trick.

pardon my ignorance, I've got a Forum board, but I'm not sure what this, I-Lock system you speak of, is.
Thanks in advance for the clarification

I-lock is a slider insert system to have a great number of stance widths available to the user. You are not restricted to use a pre-drilled insert pattern.

most thieves i have known are purely oppourtunistic.

the best defence against ALL forms of street crime; ie robbery, mugging, assault.... is to suggest in the minds of the ne'er do well, is that the next person / object will be easier for them to deal with.

you don't have to be invincible, just not the weakest.

(altho the best option of all, is to be invisible)
