Vandalism and oil contamination are problems that every motorcyclist faces. Now there's a proven, cost-effective solution for deterring vandals and keeping oil free from damaging contaminants. Secure Cap is an industry leader specializing in locking oil caps designed especially for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Until now, unlocked oil fill covers have been one of the few unprotected areas vulnerable to vandalism. Oil contaminants can permanently damage the engine. This elegant solution ensures that Harley enthusiasts are protected wherever they ride.
Parking at a music festival, on the street or at a local restaurant is now worry-free, even in the summer months when theft and vandalism are most common. Each Secure Cap has the same features as the original equipment manufacturer oil fill cap, with the added protection of a durable stainless steel lock. Secure Cap locking systems are designed for all Harley-Davidson Softail motorcycles manufactured after 2000, including Deuce, Fat Boy and Heritage models. Secure Cap is available in black, chrome and pink finishes. Charitable donations for 2014 apply to sales of pink caps only.
The locking system includes a premium dipstick, discreet swiveling cover and premium fluorocarbon O-rings. Fluorocarbons resist oil additives and will never get gummy or lose their sealing power. Locking oil caps prevent vandals from introducing potentially damaging contaminants, such as sand, gravel, sugars and syrups. Because each cap has a hidden multiple combination stainless steel lock with a discreet rotating cover, Secure Cap is an effective vandal deterrent.
Harley-Davidson motorcycles are among the most popular bikes on the road. They're also among the most stolen and most vandalized. The Harley Davidson high vandal rate is well established, and oil contamination can happen to anyone. Each year, 240,000 new Harleys hit the asphalt. Surprisingly, locking oil caps are not standard, said Debra Andrews, owner of SecureOilCap.com. Due to their high value, most riders purchase collision and comprehensive insurance. While comprehensive coverage does protect against vandalism related engine damage, insurance premiums are expensive, and deductibles are high.
Some contaminants mix with oil when the engine is hot, but after it cools down, the contaminants separate, clog the engine and have the potential to damage the transmission and other components. With continued use, blowouts and oil loss are common. In addition to peace of mind, locking oil caps help riders avoid out-of-pocket expenses and costly claims that increase insurance premiums. The cost of a Secure Cap locking system is far less than insurance deductibles and provides peace of mind wherever travels take the rider.
Secure Caps are easy to install and work by replacing the dipstick and cap that comes with the bike. Each cap features a locking mechanism that keeps the oil tank safe from vandalism and contamination.
Secure Cap is a California-based company dedicated to providing locking oil caps for Harley Davidson Softail bikes and FLH touring models. The company sells products directly to customers online through SecureCaps.com and offers wholesale distribution to qualified dealers.
