Helmet cable Locks

My wife’s helmet will fit in our top box. Both of ours won’t. On a recent trip, I took a lock off of one of my gun cases and used that. It worked fine, but the cable is a little puny ( I want it to look like it can’t be stolen).....
Sooooo...... I’m looking for recommendations on an adjustable cable lock. Something that’s coated so it won’t scratch the helmet. Adjustable, so I can make sure the helmet won’t fall and be damaged.
Thanks,
Brad

Check out the lockpicking lawyer on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm9...8W8JigLoZOh6FQ). Your eyes will be opened with how bad cable locks really are. If you are still thinking about it, I would get something substantial in size. Something similar to this: https://www.masterlocks.com/product/...hon-cable-lock

You could also look for something like this.

a little light hearted lol idea: a note written on the helmet in appropriate languages like (bedbug parking area) or something similar.

I agree with Explorecaves that most of your options will only keep an honest person from stealing your stuff. I have a 50 liter trunk I keep my lid in, but on longer road trips, it gets filled with souvenirs, snacks, t-shirts, and assorted trip trash. Then, my helmet is displaced and hung on the right mirror while I'm eating. Maybe I'm just lucky, but I've never had an issue. Although, I have a big gourd, and the 3XL sticker may be the reason folks leave it alone. Now, leaving an iPhone 6 on the Ram mount for a 5 minute bathroom break is another story all together. Don't ask me how I know.

If you find an effective cable lock, let us know. I have an Aerostich Transit jacket I love and that is irreplaceable as it is no longer made. I'd love to find a way to secure it to the bike while eating, sightseeing, shopping, etc.

I've been using this https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...et-helmet-lock it folds up and will fit in the "storage" above the gas tank. I put this through the chin bar, then place the helmet in a helmet bag and it gets locked though the center of the handle bar mount. There is also this from moto manufacturing;https://motomanufacturing.com/mirrorlok/ it'll allow you to lock your helmet using the D-ring.

Alright EC...... after binge watching lock picking lawyers, I think the ones he doesnt advertise picking any of is the inline combination lock. In addition, I believe Ill be needing his legal services soon for all the education Ive gotten today.....
