Outstanding SERVICE

I purchased bags and other miscellaneous items in 2021. I damaged one bag and had a cable lock set that I purchased that would not work properly. I shipped my damaged or faulty items to MM and after they received the items that needed repair or replacement was completed and the items returned in 2 or 3 weeks!!!!

Great little lock

It won't keep a determined thief away, but for everyday use in a "normal" environment, it works very well and is easy to use!

Perfect

Never going to stop a determined thief, what would, but good enough as a deterrent. With the panniers even having a little storage pocket in the beaver tail for the lock. Easy to use and with two lengths to choose from.

Well made locking cables

Got the Compact ADV locks in 5' and it's more than sufficient to lock the entire pannier to the rack with plenty to spare to accommodate over stuffing. If you try to work it to secure a duffle bag and a pannier with one cable then go for the 6'. You need one cable per pannier. The cable and locking mechanism are both high quality. You can adjust and lock the position of the locking mechanism to get the needed length and keep the loop tight. The shiny blue cable is pliable and compliments the Mosko pannier very well. My friends and I opted for the Compact version rather than the thicker version because it is easier to work with and inserts through the aluminum handle better. We also like the combo lock rather than carrying more keys that can be lost. The thinner cable can also be inserted through the hole by the locking lever so the pannier is locked to the frame and cannot be snatched off. I think the thicker version is too thick to do that. The thicker cable is more robust but truth of the matter is, under a bolt cutter, it takes just 1 or 2 more snips and won't offer much more security. This is just a deterrent for the opportunistic thieve.

Terrific Products & Company!

There are durable and well made products unlike anything else Ive found for a dual sport or whatever you choose. Great customer service - Good people. USA company. Only complaint is I want to mount them to sit lower on my HD Pan Am, but doesn’t appear possible (w/ HD panier brackets).

Compact ADV Lock

Size

The Compact ADV Lock is the easy-carry solution for quick stops - leave your bags on the bike while you pop in for lunch or groceries. This unique cable lock cinches down tight, so it will also stay in place while riding, and keep out prying hands at border crossings, stoplights, etc.

The 5mm cable is so compact that you can easily travel with a set, and not even notice you have them. It fits neatly in the lock-pocket of your Backcountry bag, or in a MOLLE pouch, tank bag, or other small pocket. Plus it’s a programmable combo lock, so forget the stress of fumbling for keys, too!

Sold individually.

The unique cinch-able cable tightens around the outside of your bag, securing the roll-top and making installation easy, no matter how much (or little) you packed. It also seamlessly integrates with the locking bar found on our Backcountry series bags, a feature that makes it impossible for someone to yank the cable off the roll-top and gain access to your stuff. The bag is also simultaneously locked to the bike, when you pass the lock through your rack, grab handle, or bike frame.

Our ADV locks are made from cut-resistant steel cable, with a bright blue PVC coating for visibility and corrosion resistance. Although the Compact ADV Lock won't stand up to a determined thief, visible deterrents are very effective against snatch-and-grab theft. If you're looking for a higher-security option, don't miss our Heavy Duty ADV Lock.

The Compact ADV lock comes in two lengths: 5ft (1.5M) and 6ft (1.9M), and we recommend ordering the following quantities:

- Backcountry 25/35L Pannier Kit: Two 5' Locks
- Backcountry 30/40L Duffle: One 6' Lock
- Scout 25L Pannier Kit: Two 5' Locks
- Scout Duffle (any size): One 5' Lock
