Kryptonite Disc Lock Reminder
I use it whenever I use the disc lock
It seems like a no−brainer that a rider would remember that he's got a lock on his disc brake. But I had a close call myself and there is no shortage of stories of people who have damaged their bikes and themselves, sometimes quite severely, when they forgot this detail.
Using this cable, makes it just about impossible to forget.
Shortcomings: I just wish it was about one foot longer. It springs back when the lock is opened, WHIPPING through the air, making it a bit of an eye hazard. As it's stretched with use, the issue has lessened, but it's still there.

Good for lots of things...
This cord has steel braided line on the inside, so it's very durable, and would likely be difficult to cut through without something reasonably stout.
I use the cable to lock my helmet and sometimes my jacket (by running the cable through one arm of the jacket).

Simple, but effective.
This simple device is more than worth the money spent on it. As much as I would like to think that I would always remember that there's a lock on my rotor, all it takes is one forgetful moment to damage your bike. Not only that, it's a great attention grabber to any would-be thieves.
It's simple, bright, and light, but worth every penny.

Hard to miss!
Great price, a lot cheaper than replacing a caliper bracket, or even worse a disc ! Nice and Bright!

This isn't rocket science, tie a leash to your disk lock, so you don't ride off with it on and become a YouTube sensation.
If your lock doesn't come with a reminder cord, this will do the trick; it's cheap, sturdy, and coils nicely to fit in a small space. I use mine with a Xena lock, so as long as there's just a touch of space between the disk and your lock you can use it; bonus on mine, it tightens up the fit a little, so that the lock is no longer loose on the brake disk.

As long as you remember to put on your bike it'll remind you of your disc lock.
