Replacing Helmet lock recommendations

I have a rebel Honda 86 250. It's missing the helmet holder so I would like recommendation on getting it replaced. It doesn't have to be original but a aftermarket that will work for the rebel and look good as well. Thanks

Does anyone actually use the helmet lock? I tried once, saw that the helmet hangs down against the hot muffler and took my helmet into the store with me instead. Am I doing it wrong?

Lock was missing on mine..
I use a padlock around passenger seat strap through double D rings of helmet strap..
even if seat strap cut padlock would still locked to helmet strap. making it useless.

Not sure what to do should next helmet have only nylon strap snap..

Just make sure it has the D rings.. Tried and true, simple technology. 2017 might be new helmet time for me as well.

Welcome to the forum! I had the same question but when researching i saw a lot of people tell story's about people spitting, using it as an ashtray, i read one story about some guy came out and some one was using it as a toilet. So i opt to take my helmet in with me. If i had sissy bars i would prob lock it to that with the bottom down. Maybe someone will come up with a bottom plat that fits the helmet making it like a trunk all solid.

Welcome to the forum. I also never trusted helmet locks unless I had no other option. It is just too easy for someone to cut the straps. My brother in law had a very nice custom painted Shoei, which was locked to his Valkyrie, stolen at Bike Week in Myrtle Beach. Mine always goes with me, or goes in my T bag, or just gets parked on top of the mirror, depending on the situation.

Now that my helmet is a few years old, I don't mind leaving it sitting on top of a mirror for a short stop, depending on where I am, even though to replace it with the SENA intercom mounted on it would set me back almost $1000. We are fortunate to live in a low crime area. Helmet locks just typically don't work well particularly with full face helmets.
