Default Secure golf bag to cart

I obtained for testing a device called BagBolt which attaches to your bag and secures it to your cart. No more bags falling off carts. No more slipping and sliding. Helps to prevent theft of clubs and bags. Easy to remove if transferring your bag to a friends cart. Less than 10 seconds to attach. Should be available soon in golf retail establishments here in The Villages. Take a look. Bag Bolt. I have used it for the past month. Great device.

How does it help prevent the theft of clubs and bag? Looks like one quick squeeze on the connector and the back is off. Clubs are just sitting in the open too. Am I missing something?

Wondering the same thing. Are they serial numbered for ID protection?

I don't think very many golf bags detach from carts without the benefit of human error.

They are planning to convert the piece that attaches to to bag to a locking device opened with a two digit code. This device will not stop someone from stealing an individual club but it will stop the theft of a complete bag. It also prevents the bag from falling off the cart which we see many instances of here in The Villages.

Looks well made and all but I think it's quicker just to use the strap on the cart. Never have seen a bag fall off that was secured by the cart strap. Good luck!

In over 10 years I have only seen one bag fall off a cart, from a newby that had never driven a cart much less played golf.
A new bag that I am looking at locks clubs in place to prevent theft, but not sure if the locking device extends to the bag itself

I don't understand why I would pay $25 for a device to secure the bag to the cart, when my cart already has a strap?

Yea. I agree with some of the others. A cable and lock will accomplish the same thing.

I have seen a number of bags fall off carts following rounds where people playing in another cart transfer their clubs back to their own cart. A couple of weeks ago, a gentleman’s clubs fell off his cart at Mangrove and his driver shaft snapped. The device connects and releases quickly and stays with the golf bag. With the locking piece in play someone will not be able to drive up and potentially steal your entire bag while you are having lunch. If you make it difficult for a thief chances are they will pass up on your bag which is exactly what you want.
