Burton Cable Lock
Sure, board thieves are prone to ACL blowouts and other catastrophic acts of karma, but some dirtbag's hospital bill won't bring your beloved snowboard back. Keep it from walking away in the first place with the Burton Cable Lock. The retractable cable stays out of the way when not in use, and you can even operate it with gloves on during frigid mid-winter days.

Easy and Cheap Protection

I bought this lock after doing a decent amount of research and so far so good. I've been boarding 6 times this season and it works every time. The lock itself is actually really close to the size of the picture which is much smaller than expected and definitely a good thing. Setting the combination is fairly simple and once you learn how is easy to rinse and repeat.
The only complaints about this lock is the wire is a little on the short side due to the compact design. When I go up on the mountain I typically roll with at least 2 people and this can only lock 2 boards at the most to a rack. Even then it takes some creative placement to be able to pull off. Also, it can only be locked while the combination is selected so if someone REALLY pays attention to you locking it they could remember the combo while you're locking it up.
That being said it's still the best lock that I could find that is long enough to lock 2 boards and still fits in any jacket or pant pocket and I highly recommend it.

Ive used this lock for maybe 4 years with no problems. It is light and compact. You can easily lock 2 boards. Way better than leaving your board unlocked.

Works!!! Any snowboarder that would steal a board from another snowboarder should be beaten to death, but it happens. With this, no one will snatch your baby.

Great lock, I'd highly recommend. I've been boarding for 15+ yrs, always hearing horror stories of boards disappearing. This yr I went all out an bought two nice boards.. so I figured better safe than sorry. This lock is extremely easy to use, easy to program, and will just add that extra safety you need for your board.

Sorry, I wanted to like this lock.
The painted on numbers wore off after just 10 days at the slopes. Lock is completely useless now. Bought the Dakine lock, seems to be made better.

Works fine for me when locking up a single board.

this thing is awesome, cord is long enough to keep 2 boards locked up

Aside from the fact that this lock feels like a hunk of plastic that you can smash with ease, the cable on it is way too short. Maybe that's my fault for shopping online, but I bought this so the cable could wrap around multiple boards to be locked up. It barely stretches long enough to properly secure my board, let alone a second or third. The recoil spring feels like it's getting stuck already, and I haven't even used this product yet. I would not recommend this to anyone who takes locking their board up seriously.
