I am creating this topic as a place for you to share what devices you use in order to protect your beloved board from being stolen or lost.
Do you know some GPS trackers, “board” lockers or some other things useful to protect your 4-wheeled friend ?
I hope this could benefit other e-skaters willing to protect their board, have a nice day !
I would like to have a way to stop my board via my mobile phone so if I let a stranger use it I can be sure he doesn’t rides away with it. Otherwise a GPS device would be cool or I’ll even use an alarm device that will let the alarm ring if the charger is unplugged without disarming the alarm first (like flipping a switch or something) , so I can go to the toilet and leave my board charging when I’m in a cafe/Starbucks lol.
I ordered up some of the TrackR’s to place inside the board. Figure better than nothing (having had one stolen already because i’m an idiot and left it in the car). Best protection is to keep it with you…
Maybe. Don’t worry it’s a distinctive board, and if i see it i’ll get it back. Plus a permanent limp for the thief. I still look on local CL and keep an eye out. Sucky lesson to learn, but leaving it in the car at work was dumb. Window cracked and probably a clothes hanger or easier to break in. Old car, so not much challenge. Just because it’s a locked garage… I still should’ve taken it into work.
@lowGuido method is the best, but sometimes you may leave it beside you and not be watching it and someone could take it I suppose. Never thought it would be an issue. Most ppl wouldnt even know what it is.
However now that it brought up I like the idea of the tracker and combo with a motion detector. As long as you could set the detector properly. Wouldnt want it gong off all the time every time I used it. Have a Raptor so big investment and doubt Id be able to afford another one if it was stolen.
