Keep your kit locked up in the Snow!!

 

We all know to lock our bike up or our car up, so why should your ski’s or snowboards be any different? In ski resorts all over the world, thousands are left everyday unattended and unlocked outside guest houses, restaurants and coffee shops, where its all too easy for a thief to sneak away with them. With the Northcore Viper-X snow lock, you can leave your kit locked up and secure when your not using it.

Northcore have taken years to produce the very best ski and snow lock on the market. The lock is a compact, portable, 3 digit combination lock which features a 90cm (approx) auto-retractable steel cable which is stored in the body when not in use.  It’s a perfect lock solution for snowboarders and skiers or for securing luggage when travelling.

As with any security device a determined criminal with the right tools can break into anything but use a Viper X and its a very good deterrent. Would a thief chose to take a locked item or one next to it left unlocked? So at only £9.50 a Snow Lock is well worth the buy. Grab yours for this winter!!
