Simple and effective. It may just be a lock, but does exactly what it says on the box…
With paddleboarding forever on the rise, and it’s ever more increasing popularity due to the COVID, it seems board theft is becoming quite prevalent.. Worry no longer..
The Red Original Board Lock features;
• 3.2mm Marine grade twisted stainless steel cable: Resistant to corrosion and provides increased cut resistance.
• Abrasion-resistant Coating: Protects the cable from fraying or from damaging other objects the lock is attached to.
• 340cm Long: Ability to lock multiple boards together with one lock.
• Programmable Combination lock: Easy to use carabiner combination lock can be set to a personal code further reducing the likelihood of board being stolen.
I locked my two boards to a sign post. It easily fits two boards stacked. I looped the cable through my D rings for a more secure locking but you could link the cable through grab straps (Although a sharp pair of scissors / blade will likely cut your straps) My suggestion is loop the cable through the strongest points on your board – this really depends on the brands / style. Red Original Accessories are a universal fit which is great.
The programmable lock is great and it’s also a carabiner which is handy. I’ve used this a couple of times now and have confidently left my boards outside on a main road in St. Ives during my last trip away.

Is it worth it? 100% Yes – regardless of the haters, the cheapstakes and nay sayers. Spending £32.95 on a product which is protecting an items worth between £500-1000 each, it’s a no brainer for me.
