Looking for a particular kind of cable lock.
My MTB spends a significant percentage of its time in the bed of my ok-its-not-a-real-truck Ridgeline. I'm looking for a combination cable lock to attach it to the bed tie-down points.
My problem is that most of the medium to large combination cable locks have large plastic ends on them surrounding the actual hasp, which are too big to fit through the ~3/4" tiedown holes. Specifically, the OnGuard Akita series end is too big to fit, although the 10mm and 12mm cables and the actual steel locking end fit fine.
So I'm hoping someone has experience with a medium/large cable lock that has more of the traditional sleeved end like the keyed locks seem to. Size/weight of the cable is not an issue; this is to live with the truck, not be carried on the bike. Appreciate it!
Edit: Maybe a better alternative would be a noose-type chain like the New York Noose, and a separate combo padlock? A little more cumbersome, but it seems they are considered a lot more secure, and should fit the tiedown point well.
