I was recently asked if I’d used a n/c loop to protect my bike after posting the above photo on my Twitter feed,
To explain the jargon a N/C loop is a (normally closed) wire that wraps around whatever it is you are trying to protect. If it gets cut then the alarm would trigger.
That’s quite a primitive and clumsy way to do things these days so I thought I’d share how I protect the bike when it is left on the back of the car.
I simply use a Tool Guard TG-6000 wireless angle sensor which is attached to the back of the supplementary number plate.
It looks like a normal number plate but as soon as you move it it triggers the alarm. Lets face it, technically I don’t need a supplementary plate as I’m not obstructing the plate on the car but it is still there for a reason.
