Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get Your Stuff Together
For tools: You're gonna need a drillbit a drill a ratchet or an impact driver and a 9/16 socket.
Lag bolts 2 that match your d ring procured from your local hardware store
D-ring from your local Homeless Despot hardwear shoppe.
(I chose a biggie D ring cuz, well, it looks impressive)
This whole locking system is mostly to deter people who want a bike quick. You could add tamper proof bolts instead if you wanted.
Step 2: Find Where the Studs in Your Walls Are
And mark them. You can tap on the wall with your knuckle, guess, use a stud finder or you can see where the walls are held on by fasteners and assume there's a stud behind there somewhere...
Then you're gonna drill holes
I used a 1/4 inch drill bit.
Step 3: This Isn't Gonna Work.
I'm pretty sure my granny could rip those screws out easy peasy
Step 4: After the Pilot Holes Are Drilled
Use your ratchet or impact driver to put the lag bolts in bolting your loop to the wall
Step 5: Should Look Like This
Make sure it's not upside down. If the loop is hanging on the top side of the strap you've got a gravity problem.
Step 6: Done!
Now you have a more secure way to lock up your bike in your garage or carport!
