    Instrument cluster security plates - 3D printed

    I decided to make some 3D printed security plates to prevent unwanted removal (i.e. theft) of the instrument cluster on my bike. I have attached photos below.

    These anti-theft plates mount on either side of cluster using the upper bolts that secure the GPS bracket to the bike. When in place they cover the sides of the cluster and prevent it from being pulled out of its socket. They are designed so they cannot be broken off or rotated out of the way. They are quite unobtrusive and cost less than $0.30 for the pair in materials.

    I'm happy to share the STL files if anyone else would like to make these.

    If you decide to make and install these, make sure that you have a small magnetic pickup tool. The side bolts on the GPS bracket must be pushed back into the bracket housing in order to provide clearance to slide the plates in place. Only by using a small magnet is it possible to pull the bolt back out through the mounting hole in the bracket before you reinstall the nut.
