Best snowboard lock?
 
I've been looking into getting a lock to lock my snowboard to the rack outside of the lodges, so some jackass doesn't steal my board. A retractable one would be best since I'll be keeping it in a cargo pocket of my pants. Any suggestions?

Get yourself a cheap bicycle lock from Walmart.

Not letting your board leave your sight.

i used a bike cable with a master lock last season with no problems. you can go to a big box store and grab them both for ~$20 or less.

That will keep you safe. Or a u-lock that is big enough to fit around the waist but not the tips. So that it isn't rideable.

The best lock is a smith and wesson 686 chambered for .357 mag. Then you hide and wait for them to come steal your board and then you spring out of hiding like "NRHAAAAAAAAH! That shit is mine, not yours bitch!"

A U-lock? Seriously? I don't mean to be cynical Nivek, but isn't that a bit overkill? I'm actually honestly interested if any one on here uses one of these. I have one for my bike and it weighs close to 10 lbs.

I've always used a simple retractable lock (fits right in my pocket). They're light and easy to pop on and off. Yes, the cable is a little flimsy but its kept away most of the Boston/NY doucheheads that migrate to the mountains I ride...

Just my $0.02.

I was looking around for a lock myself and found that most people dislike the retractable pocket sized locks because they just stop working eventually, either the retractor gives out or the lock jams and will not open. Also the plastic casing is just cheap and can be forced open if one was willing enough.

I just got this in the mail last week:

OnGuard Combo Lock Terrier Combo | SnowShack.com

Its convenient because its designed to be used with your gloves on. Also it does not have any fragile parts, its all just a simple bar/chamber interlock system so I don't imagine it will ever stop working or break due to the cold. Its not as portable as the retractable locks, but it still can be fit in an empty jacket pocket; I just recommend leaving it locked on a post if you only intend to dock at one location during your day.

Nivek isn't to far off the mark. There are new snowboard racks that have deep rails with a hole at the end for a lock. You buy a small lock from the on mountain Pro store to lock the board onto the rack.

If you are going to a resort that does not have the new secure racks, Kryptonite has a coil lock called "Ball and Chain."

BTW, forget the retractable locks. The cable is so thin, you can easily cut it with a pair of tin shears.
