I just use one of those burton retractable locks. Its not as strong as some bike lock but I think that just having any kind of lock on it will make a thief not bother and move onto something else.

How?

My local hill always seems to have some maintenance guy out there wailing away on the rack to get them off when someone loses their key.

I like the ski key. My bitch is finding an empty slot on the racks

I believe that a screw driver could break the lock but you would also need a hammer to tap (3 taps?) the screw driver in. So if I'm in the lodge and see someone swinging a hammer near my board, I'll bust a chair over their head.

Where as the Ball and Chain can be cut with Bolt cutters. Bolt cutters although cumbersome, can be hidden under a jacket. So theft would be much more discrete.

Those retractable coil locks are trash and can be cut with tin shears. But they are a mild deterrent.

In the end, most thieves will avoid locks and just take the unlocked board. The exception being, the thief wants your board, considers your lock not a problem and the board is worth the risk of getting caught.

PS - So I guess the best answer is to find the old style locking snowboard racks and pay the $1 in quarters to lock your board up.

Put a sticker on your board that says "Warning: This board has been coated in human semen." Maybe it has. Maybe it hasn't. But what thief would take the risk that it is true?
