PIn Lock
on: 07 April, 2016, 08:38:00 PM
 A couple of weeks ago I went in search of a new Pin Lock insert and came across Bargainbikerbrands who were selling the genuine
 USA made Pin Lock inserts self tinting or clear with fixing pins at 5 each, I sent for one thinking that for that price they had to be a cheap Charly Chan copy as they are usually between 20 and 30 each,  When it arrived what a surprise it turned out to be the USA made Pin Lock of excellent quality that works far better than any of my previous Pin Locks.
 Anyone who has never used a Pin Lock ,I can only say that you have no idea what you are missing.

one of the best helmet innovation ever. I have it on all the time even in the hot summer on my shoei air.
If you are using it once then your hooked for life.
If the pin knob adjusted correctly then it can last long. I have one on in 2 years and still sealing well. You need tension adjustment time to time if gap appears.
Many of my friends didn't have a clue that you can actually turn the knob to adjust it.
will explorer the site as shoeis one are not cheap.  :028:

 I have to admit I was not aware that the pins rotated for adjustment, that was until I broke one off ,fortunately I had a spare
 The replacement insert I had was slightly to long which meant making the fixing slots longer with a sharp knife, after a bit of fiddling finally got it to fit snugly, As you say I will check it for tension from time to time and turn the pins if need be.

Cheers - all for Arai and the stickon variety (so it says). So won't suit my helmet.
