Has anyone used the Zumo Lock XT with the Evotech mount for the Zumo xt? Any issues or problems?

No happy about my XT not being very safe and secure while on the bike ,ie at petrol station /paying for the fuel, all it needs is a quick press of the mount clip and it's off and away by some vilian ☹️
To act as a deterrent and make it harder to be stolen, I decided to make a simple and cheap solution.
The idea is that the clip can't be pushed down to release the XT from the mount, plus I added a tether for extra security.
Took about a hour to make , a bit crude but effective , if anyone interested in how it's made let me know.

I canceled the order for zumo lock, very good solution and cheap, where did I get the right parts? I understand that I can also use suitable Hinges.

Just make sure you don't leave the key on the lock :lol:

I think you should do a separate post with how you made it :D

Yes, it’s that easy. In my pocket it goes when I’m out of sight of my bike so, no need to worry about villains.

Not a locking device but an easy and cheap way to have Zumo XT securely attached to the mount: I just bought RAM rubber strap (RAM-HOL-UN10TU), se attached photos. Works great :-)

I think that looks like a great solution for those who feel they need a tether. I was concerned the rubber straps would cover the corners of the screen but, it looks fine. And unlike a tether you don’t have to glue anything to the back of the XT.
