You wouldn't, I wouldn't, and neither will all the customers the developer of this product is counting on. Failed enterprise in the making.

If you make it difficult for a thief chances are they will pass up on your bag which is exactly what you want.
Nope. Still not convinced.

Looks like a nylon strap - a sharp knife slices through it like butter. I use a bicycle cable/lock.

A bungee cord will do the same thing.

IMO, if a golfer forgets to strap in his bag after a round of golf, what makes you think he is going to remember to use this device? Is there a siren or buzzer that is going to go off if it isn't latched? I don't see it either... sorry!

As the web site suggests, the primary purpose for this device it to stop bags from shifting/ sliding that happens with standard straps on golf carts. This reduces bag chatter which is a concern. It also acts as a deterrent to someone trying to quickly try to snatch a bag off a cart. Can the strap be cut with a knife? Certainly. However anything that acts as a deterrent to theft is in my mind a benefit. They are also releasing a version with an combination lock which will render easy removal by an outsider extremely difficult. The developer announced this morning a special promotion on their site for Residents. Simply put in the key words The Villages to take advantage of the promotion.

Your original post says you obtained the device for testing. Seems like you agreed to shill the product in a quid pro quo arrangement.

Or perhaps is the inventor or distributor. I have never seen any problem with the straps currently being used on a golf cart. Fixing a problem that doesn't exist.

Sorry to disappoint you. No quid pro quo. I do know the developer and agreed to test and provide feedback which I have done.

In any case. Thank you for the information. I got it. Easy to attach. Deters theft. Not sure what the heck bag chatter is. However, I have chosen not to purchase.
