Dowco Weatherall Plus Cover Alarm
I really liked how easy this product was to install. Instructions could use a little help to make things a bit more clear. I was surprised at how loud this alarm was when I performed my test in the garage. I think this coupled with the locking cover make a great pair. Very happy with this product.

If you have the Dowco cover or any cover for that matter that will lend itself to this alarm do yourself a solid and get it. It is pretty loud and once again another layer of protection that will help to keep your bike where you parked it. I have no doubts that this alarm is loud enough to let you know if someone has their hands where they don’t belong.

It went off while I was trying to figure out how to work it and it's extremely loud and that's a good thing

Affordable alarm that works!
I've used this cover alarm for a few months and it's working well. On the inner/lower area of my rain cover for my bike, I have a pouch to place this alarm in. Just hook the provided lanyard/hook onto a part of your bike. As someone tries to lift the rain cover, it pulls the lanyard and alarm pin out, which activates the impressive alarm! This definitely turns heads when this thing goes off! I might buy another one for my patio sliding door to my home. For around $25, this alarm is worth it's weight in gold. Even if I do ever need to replace it, it's affordable enough to buy another one without regret.

Very LOUD alarm!
If you need something to scare off would be thiefs then this is perfect. It is 130dB and I believe every bit of that after pulling the pin on it. I rigged it up to work in my CycleShell and I don't worry about a thing knowing that would wake me in the middle if the night.

Great product, even if you don't use this as a cover alarm. I attached the alarm behind my headlight with Velcro and ran the clip down to the rotor. If the bike is moved about a inch the alarm sounds. Good deterrence.Louie

Serves it's purpose but could use improvements
I installed this alarm on my dowco cover. Slips right into one of the interior pockets and hooks on to any part of your bike. I usually hook it to one of the spokes on my rear wheel. If anybody tries to remove the cover the alarm sounds. Pretty straight forward. The alarm is loud at 130db. The lanyard and hook/clasp could be better. Id like to see a metal hook and maybe some sort of wire lanyard. It doesnt make your bike theft proof if your someone who has to leave it outside like me, but any step added to deter thieves is worth it too me.
