Does it's job well. I had issues with my shield fogging. I ordered a pinlock visor and insert and my fogging issue was resolved. August 27, 2014
No more fogging I got the 'smoke' color. It's impossible to fog this thing, which is great. It has spoiled me so I'll always get pinlock in the future. It's a really nice feeling not having sunglasses jammed in the helmet. My tiny gripes: 1) I thought I would be able to add/remove this at will, but basically it's a one time install. It is NOT designed to be installed multiple times. This is not a good solution if you need to switch from day to night riding. 2) The locking mechanism is weak. The plastic is soft and was partially deformed on the first install. It does it's job well, but I don't think they'll survive a second install. 3) The smoke color isn't as good optically as I expected. But I'm kinda spoiled with quality sunglasses. It's totally decent though. Since I crashed and need a new helmet I'll just get a clear dual pane shield and use sunglasses with 'blade' type ear pieces because they fit perfectly into helmets. Pinlock inserts will spoil you if you ever have to crack your shield due to fogging. August 16, 2014
Easy and awesome Nice product, fog proof. Not as dark as I would like on a clear day. But great quality. August 5, 2014
Tint your shield with option to be clear at any time Purchased the dark smoke pinlock so I could put it on my clear shield and shade my eyes during the day. And if I had to ride after dark I could remove the dark smoke pinlock and have the clear shield to ride with. Works as planned. However, with the dark smoke pinlock when the sun is not directly over head, such as late morning, there is a glare which appears like fog on the shield. This does not happen with a clear pinlock so I believe it only happens with tinted pinlocks. When I changed the angle of my head to the sun, the glare that looked like fog in the shield went away. Once I realized what it was from I was ok with it but not overly excited. I thought that I was doing the right thing buy using a clear shield with a tinted pinlock but I might have rather just purchased a dark smoke shield and carried both shields when I ride.

Insert is as described Perfect fit and finish. Light smoke was my option - for day and dusk - works good. Great quality, No shield fog now. Easy to install too! Product works. July 14, 2014
Very Good Sun Protection The Dark Gray is very good for Day Light Savings time. It is a bit on the darker side if you use after Sunset. I would use the light Gray for the end of Fall/Winter days as I normally leave work around 6:00ish PM and will be dark. Very easy to install. June 23, 2014
The smoked one is good, the clear one is fair The clear one came with the helmet. It gives an unacceptable amount of reflection and glare when riding in the dark. The smoked one is great for riding in the sun and keeps the inside of the helmet cool. June 23, 2014
Blocks sun, leaves small glare... Good insert, but there is a slight glare that I believe is caused from there being space between the two parts. If you never had a smoked shield before, it may not bother you, but it does me at times. Other than that, it works seemlessly with the shield. Installation was a slight pain to get right the first time as with anything I suppose. It allows the shield vents to work as designed. Make sure the inside of both the insert and shield are clean before you pop it into place or you will be staring at whatever you left there anytime you put on the helmet. June 23, 2014

Miro C: Arai ships helmets with clear visors and clear pinlock lenses. Not very useful when the sun comes up. Light smoke takes care of that. It's good in the sun, and does pretty well at nights. Dark smoke visor is for daylight use only. Apr 20, 2014

Daniel W: A new shield, a new insert. Sep 5, 2013
William H asked: Is it actually necessary to tighten or loosen the contact points? The instructions say to use a screwdriver to loosen and tighten the seal, but I've already stripped two visors trying this. Though I did finally find that if you flatten the shield enough you can barely squeeze the pinlock insert in without trying to loosen or tighten the locking point. Not sure how well it will all hold, but it was a problem I experienced. May 2, 2014

Scott P: It does work without turning the posts, but it's much more difficult to squeeze the shield in. I had left them loosened such that they weren't protruding over the shield, and it worked fine for a while, but then one day all of a sudden it wasn't holding the shield anymore so I had to turn the screws.

John B: I've never adjusted the posts on mine. I just insert the new filter & it's good to go. For reference, I change mine frequently to compensate for weather, time of day, or track conditions. May 7, 2014

Eric C asked: How is the low-light/night visibility on the yellow visor? Jan 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Eric C: I went ahead about bought the pinlock visor and yellow insert anyway.
\Night time visibility is very good with the yellow insert, but everything, headlights especially, looks very yellow and takes a ride or two to get used to.
The yellow insert doesn't do that much to block out sun light during the day, but still better than the clear by a bit.
As far as the visor itself, the bevel at the edges distorts visibility a bit and it's sometimes hard to tell if its the bevel or an object at the far edge of my peripheral vision. It'll take some getting used to.
Overall, not quite what I expected, but overall I am satisfied.

Gene W: I purchased this item but returned it unopened because I didn't like the Pinlock visor system. My Arai came with this type visor in clear and I also bought the yellow at the same time as an extra visor for night use. I found with the clear OEM visor that it reduces the useable area of the visor as well as distorts my view more than is acceptable. I use the clear without the insert installed for night and the visor style without the Pinlock feature in the darkest tint available for daytime. I may buy the yellow visor in the non Pinlock style at some time in the future but I'm sorry to report that the Pinlock style isn't for me. Jan 23, 2014

A shopper asked: does the visor lay flat? im wondering if i'd be able to keep the insert under my seat in my GSXR1000 during night riding May 24, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Pinlock inserts most certainly do lay flat. It is not recommended, however, to remove/replace the lenses on a regular basis as this action degrades the silicone seal that provides the anti-fog characteristics. Once the seal is damaged, the dual-pane created by the Pinlock is negated. The preferred method is still to exchange the entire faceshield between smoke and clear for day and night riding, respectively. Another option is to us the e-Tint AX-10 Auto Tint Faceshield Insert for Arai helmets which gives you Pinlock qualities with automatic tinting for day/night riding. May 31, 2012

WCS4th: The insert does lay flat, however I would be careful about just shoving it under your seat. The insert is made of a rubbery plastic type material and may pick up lint and dirt easily.

I would find a lint free cloth to wrap it in or put it in a Ziploc bag for underseat storage.

Hope this helps.

A shopper asked: From the picture, it doesn't appear that the seal is contoured around the vent. Doesn't this compromise the layer of air in between the visor and shield? Apr 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: This Pinlock Insert is specific for and will only work with the Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Ready Face Shield w/ Brow Vents. Though it may not appear like it, the silicone bead on the insert is continuous, even around the brow vent cutouts, so the seal is maintained. Apr 5, 2013
