These clever Bar Cuffs not only make it easy to tie down your motorcycle for transport, but are also guaranteed not to scratch your chromed or powder-coated handlebars.
The multi-patented Bar Cuffs cost $US49.95 (about $A75 plus postage) and are made of stainless steel so they won’t rust like many tie-down hooks.
They feature rubber inserts to prevent scratching and slipping and save you the hassle of putting something soft between the nylon straps or hooks and the bars.
Adam Ewles says his invention will support up to 900kg of strain, so they should be suitable for all sized scooters and motorcycles.
They are also able to be locked in case you are storing your bike on a trailer overnight.
Bar Cuffs come in a pack of two with extra inserts in different sizes to accommodate various sized bar diameters.
You can also clamp then right over the bar grips and the eyelets will self tighten.
Note that you will still need nylon straps to tie down the rear of the bike.
