Dowco Weatherall Plus Cover Alarm
Perfect for intended use!
After car cover was stolen, decided to add this little gadget to make some noise, along with cable and lock. Alarm is loud enough. So far cover is still in place. A good deterrent at any rate. pleased with the purchase and would recommend. Simple and easy to use. You just have to remember to remove it before you remove the cover.

Inexpensive and LOUD
I mean, for such a small investment, you get a lot of security. I pulled the pin in my apt to test and I was afraid my neighbors were going to call the cops (it was deafening). I bought this with the Dowco Guardian Weatherall Plus cover where there are multiple pockets to drop this sucker in. On my FZ-07, I put it in the front pocket and wrap and hook the lanyard around one of the spokes on the front wheel. Anyone pulling the cover off will be in for a real shock when that alarm goes off!

For $20, how can you go wrong?
$20 for an alarm like this? How can you go wrong? First off, it's LOUD! Really, for the size of the unit it's pretty impressive (or annoying, depending on how much you play with it before actually using it). It's simple, cheap, and will give some level of additional security. Can't go wrong for the price of a pizza.

I like using this for when I need to leave home with my bike parked for more than a night or two. I'm more concerned about frat boys and vandalism than actual theft, so this is a nice deterrent. The only trick is remembering its armed before pulling the cover off in the morning =P

Basic cover alarm
A nice basic alarm. It is disturbingly loud. It is fairly discreet as well. I live in the city and park my bike on the curb - when I am messing with the cover I can attach or disconnect the clip from my brake line in a smooth motion.
I have no doubt I'd be able to hear it anywhere in my house. If I am not home and it goes off, my awesome neighbors next door will be on the phone with the cops in about five seconds.
I am also considering installing it under the seat somewhere, running the alarm clip to a spoke (or something else that would have to move if the bike got messed with), and wiring up another hidden switch. That way I could use it without the cover, like if I park it somewhere in town for the day.
It requires a 9-volt battery (not included). It isn't the most beautiful object in the world, but who cares, it lives in a pocket on the inside of your cover.
Just a nice little extra peace of mind.

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.
