Tired of your helmet falling off your Burgman/bike? The Helmet Hook is the solution..

So, your helmet keeps falling off the bike? Boy, do I have a solution for you.

Like many inventions and ideas, the Helmet Hook was born from frustration. I simply dropped my helmet one too many times.
My helmet only cost me $137 and it still hurt every time that thing fell on the ground and started rolling around. I can only imagine
what people feel that have a $500-700 dollar helmet...


(Note that ALL pictures are Customer pictures)







Anyway, without further ado, I present the Helmet Hook...

  • When you stop to get gas, hang your helmet on the Helmet Hook.
  • No more hanging it on the rear view mirrors only to have to readjust them.
  • Some bikes have helmet locks or you can buy an after market helmet lock but they are always attached to the frame
    meaning that your helmet WILL be resting against a hard surface, increasing the chance of it getting scraped up.
  • The position of the Helmet Hook is IDEAL. It's at the furthermost point from the bike.
  • If you have Bar End Weights on your bike (and if not, they're cheap) you can use the Helmet Hook.
  • If you have Hand Guards, you can use the Helmet Hook.
  • The Helmet Hook is compatible with virtually every bike on the market Street Bike, Dirt Bike, ATV, etc.
  • Been shopping? Hang your bags on the Helmet Hook while getting your gloves out of the bike luggage, etc. Hang the
    bags and have your hands free to open the Top Box.
  • Do you keep your bike on a Battery Tender? Hang the cables on the Helmet Hook to keep them from dragging on the ground.

  • The Helmet Hook can be mounted facing the bike or facing out.
  • Installation is very simple. Unscrew the Bar Weight or Hand Guard, put the Helmet Hook in place and screw Weight or Guard back on.
  • You can hang your helmet from the STRAP, from the D-Rings or other type of attachment and it even works with ratcheting type straps.
  • The Helmet Hook is made from 1/4" ABS Plastic and is very strong. In fact we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY on the Helmet Hook.
    Should the Helmet Hook ever break or fail in any way, take a picture of the broken one, send it to us and we'll replace it immediately.
References and Feedback!
  • You may have to register to read this thread but it's a forum so it's free. Anyway, this is my first sales thread and as you'll see, I have NOT
    had one single negative comment about my Helmet Hook. On of the reasons I want you guys to post here before and after buying is so
    that other riders can see it. They will see who buys them and what they think about the Hooks. Also, pictures and comments are always
    greatly appreciated and so are posts in other forums. Feel free to use any of the pictures as long as you leave them intact with the credits.
    ADVRder Forum Thread
Note!
  • Note that the Helmet Hook was NOT designed as a Helmet Lock. It is designed for temporary use. Needless to say, you can leave it
    on there as long as you'd like but the idea behind it is to hang it while you get gas, stop and get something to drink and so on. That
    being said, we DID modify it so that it can now be used with a pad lock if you'd like to lock the helmet to the hook. We also sell the locks.
  • The Helmet Hook has been updated and the diameter is now smaller which makes it more discrete and it now has the domain name
    molded into the hook. So, no stickers with the domain like the old ones had. Also, the product is now better!!

Price and ordering information!
  • If' you'd like to order a hook or two, please post HERE in the forum and then follow up with a PM or e mail me to info AT extuff DOT biz
    Notifications sometimes don't work as they should. You can also send a payment to info AT totaldesignz DOT COM for the correct amount.
  • Member price is $13.95 per hook including shipping to the continental USA. Add $1 shipping per hook for additional hook.
  • International orders are $13.95 plus $2 for the additional shipping and again, add $1 for each additional hook.
  • Note that I have resellers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK so if you're from there, again, post your inquiry here
    and I will PM you with their contact information. When their sites are up and running, you will be able to get there directly from my shopping
    site at extuff.biz or TheHelmetHook.com
  • Pad locks are an additional $2.55 regardless if your local or outside the US. No added shipping cost for the first lock if bought with hook/s.
Important Information!
  • IF you are unsure of whether the Helmet Hook will fit on your handlebars, send us a picture to info@extuff.biz and we will let you know.
    Note that it will fit just about any handle bars that have either some kind of hand guards or bar end weights. Regardless if the bar end
    weights screw into the handlebars with a long bolt or they are the kind that has a screw that goes into a rubber that expands when you tighten it.
Disclaimer!
  • Do NOT ride with anything hanging on the Helmet Hook!
  • You will need Bar End Weights or Hand Guards to mount the Helmet Hook to the handlebars. Basically, you need ONE bolt screwing into
    the handlebar to hold the helmet hook, that's it.
Important information for International Customers
  • Because of the way the USPS shipping fees/tables are integrated with our shopping cart, when checking out, your shipping charges of
    purchases outside of the USA will be high. Therefore, please complete the purchase and we will manually adjust your shipping after the
    purchase and give you a refund for the difference. If First Class Mail is acceptable, we can send the first Helmet Hook to you for approx.
    $4 and each additional hook for $1. Note that this is only an issue with small and light items such as the Helmet Hook where the weight
    is under 4LB and where the item fits in a padded envelope.
  • For buyers from the Australia, Canada, New Zealand, please contact me and I will forward your order to the reseller in that country.
  • Note that I'm always looking for more resellers in the USA and in other countries.





Helmet Hook with Ratcheting type strap




Lockable. Order the pad lock from us if you'd like as the right size is hard to find.













The Helmet Hook can be mounted facing out or towards the bike. The choice is yours.

Are you referring to this Helmet Hook? http://www.extuff.biz/

I have two of them on my Burgman. They work as advertised although you need to check frequently to make sure they aren't pulling your end weights out (they will pull them out). I just take a screwdriver (phillips) and tighten my weights every week or so which is a good idea even without the helmet hooks. Look around here on BurgmanUSA and you will find threads about people losing their end weights pretty often.

Never heard of anyone losing their weights, especially on a machine as smooth as the big burg. How about a little loctite?

Just because you have never heard of it doesn't mean it isn't happening. It does happen and if you aren't checking yours to make sure that the screws are tight from time to time I expect you will find one of yours missing in action someday.

Loctite isn't the answer. You may someday want to take one of them off. With them fixed with loctite, the screw assembly may just spin in place without loosening.

After having to tighten my left one (it's always the left one) several times in the last few months I finally out of frustration took it off, cleaned the inside of the bar with rubbing alcohol and then swapped a glob of fingernail polish on the expanding part of the weight and reinstalled it and tightened it up real good. That seems to have done it as it has been quite a while since I did that and my weight is still nice and snug on the bar.

Really? I thought that like the Ostrich, if I stick my head in the sand and I don't see the dangerous animal, the dangerous animal won't see me either...hmm

Anyway, there ARE loctite versions that are not permanent, right?

So, is this a burg only problem or what? Never had it happen to me with my regular bikes and I've never had a burg. Just tried one once

Can happen on any bike that uses the type of setup that Suzuki uses on the bar end weights. Never have seen it happen on bikes with the fake bar end weights, just the one with the real weights. Never happened on my Honda Pacific Coast, it had a different type of system on the 1989 model - a screw in one. You might be screwing yours in tighter (or whoever put the bar ends on your bikes). That might explain why you are not seeing this with your bikes. As I have gotten older I find that muscle mass has gone away. I now tell people that I have the grip of an eleven year girl. Kind of hard to take to tell the truth. I was a US Marine for 8 1/2 years and was in really good shape as a young man. I guess that our mortality bites us all at some point. Never thought I would see the day that I would struggle to lift some bikes off of the side stand either. I am going to stop before I get too far into the pity party stuff now.
