Dowco Weatherall Plus Cover Alarm
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.

Worth $20 for the extra security. Very loud!!
I have my Gorilla Alarm , Disc lock, and bike cover with this alarm attached. Its a back up for the back up and when one fails to wake me up, hopefully the next alarm will and I can lock & load.
at 130DB this thing leaves your ears ringing. pretty simple and definetly worth $20. you dont need a dowco bike cover to use it. I have it attached to my bike and a non dowco bike cover. I like it. and i live in a city where bikes are stolen frequently, plus i have a shiny R1 that theives just love

I bought this as an additionnal security measure. It was inexpensive to purchase and if someone break my bike cover lock, I know the alarm will be my next line of defense. If the thief manage to get pass that alram, then he will be face with an Abus wheel lock and a big fat chain from Abus also. Since I live in the city, I think anything you can do to protect your bike is worth it.
