4. Ignition Switch Lock Reminder

081414-04-Top-10-Hacks-Hacks-7132

We’ve all seen those neon orange “Remove Before Flight” ribbons that people attach to their disc locks. Well, in the dark, you can’t see them. If you just so happen to be preoccupied with your thoughts at night, you could accidentally ride off with the lock still attached. We all know (some of us better than others) how much that hurts. So, make it impossible to put the key in the ignition without encountering a reminder to remove the lock. Attach the fuzzy side of hook and loop fastener to the ring around your ignition key and put the hook side to the back of a brightly colored sticker. When you open the lock, place the sticker over the ignition switch, and you won’t be able to put the key in without moving the sticker. Store the sticker on the lock itself with a little more hook and loop.
