Just bought these from the hardware store. I can lock my friends board with these as well. Am I going to generate unwanted attention with this bling? Anyway, I know I'm over thinking this problem (too cynical some might say). If someone is a scumbag and want to steal my gear they will do anything. If they can't, they can just damage it which is almost as bad.

I was thinking of actually just taking my board anywhere I go or make sure I have a friend watching it for me while I'm in the bathroom (forgot to add this in poll).

Where I live, all the racks are made to fit with this ski key - http://www.skikey.eu/Presse_files/Skikey_1.jpg - .

Cost like 20$. I keep it in my coat pocket and don't even feel it.

Stealing an unlocked board is the EASIEST thing in the world, I cannot understand anyone that doesn't lock up their shit?!?!

I started using the Ski Key this year. Put it in the rack to save my spot when I get there and pick it up when I'm done.

Do you struggle to pick up something as heavy as a fork too? That thing is tiny and weighs nothing. I can understand someone wanting to leave their lock tied up if it's something heavy duty or something. Either way, if you don't want to carry your lock, why not just lock it up to one of the legs on the side out of the way?
