Introduction: Huge Lock; Quick Use

Picture of Huge Lock; Quick Use

  I'd been kicking this lock around for a while till I found a good use.  In my area, all that is really needed is to thwart a thief from actually riding your sled away, is a stop to it from rolling away.  Without wheels, there is no getaway!  This is a quick solution using a VERY LARGE lock.

Step 1: Rubberize

I used an old inner tube to rubberize it and give it a little character.

Step 2: Lock It Up

I grabbed 3 spokes and locked it around the rear drop out on the frame.  Now you may enter the store for that desperately needed Choco Taco!

Step 3: Quick Storage

I lock it to the handlebars for easy access and convenience. Also the main reason to rubberize.
 Picture me rolling ;)

WARNING, the lock in that position will make you destroy the rear wheel some day. I say this by experience. You should locate it near the outer rim.

Giving the time it takes me to wear a rim out...... Its not a big concern. Not to mention this is not an every day lock, but thanks for your WARNING
