Yes, I'd be glad to supply whatever you need.

Moto Tube locks, (LockLoop portion is the 1" ss d rings, ss cable clamps, 2 ss rivets, and brass padlock w/ 2 keys.) $6, plus shipping.
(Priority $5, 1st class generally $2-3; 1st class intl fairly cheap.)
The ss rivets can be a bear to install, I've put cheater bar pipe on my rivet gun, but I'm dealing w/ a shoulder injury right now.

The Mega tube lock is $10, more hardware and more prep.Right photo shows the P clamp on upper side of bracket- this is an optional "parking spot" for the cable to tuck into when not in use. I've made up a pdf to guide the install. Shipping the same cost.
Multiple units; I now have a keyed alike lock option, same price-

No "agri supply" aren't 4 bucks, and they don't have the Mega size. Give "agri" a shout, tell them what bike you have, model, year, racks, any other special needs, they'll fix you right up! Probably get it out that afternoon, on your porch in 2 days, tops. Don't forget to ask for the lock options, also!

do you have to use rivets to mount the locking mechanism?

rivets

No, I think you could get away w/ carefully selected nuts & bolts. I use rivets for the greater security, low profile, and ease to install once the operation is set up. I use stainless rivets at the locking points for optimum strength, and aluminum rivets for the cable guides. As I said, I use some cheater bars for the ss rivets, just makes it easier for me. I never really experimented w/ nuts and bolts, seemed like more cost, more protrusions, more points to be criticised, not that that would happen. My local hardware store stocks the tamper proof style hardware, but... If you don't have a rivet tool yet, there are about $10 for the cheapies, and you'll use it far more than you think you would. Word of advice, I was late to learn- the $40 marston hp-2 is well worth the initial cost- but you won't know until you wrestle w/ and wear out the cheapies, so start there. I use 6-4 and 6-6 size rivets, 3/16" dia x 1/4 and 3/16 x 3/8, depending on location. Don't install the ss rivets if you aren't sure, they are a bear to drill out-

Happy Trails SU Rack MegaTube mounting

I've just changed to a HT SU Rack, from my Givi PL532. HT adds a bar w/ 2 holes for an ABS style tube. The rear hole provides a good mount point, and a "cold set" 3/4" p clamp provides the forward anchor. MegaLock Tube shown here, early prototype. My Denali boxes are showing up in a few days, so I'll find out then if there are any conflicts with the new mounting puck system, or if the cushion on the p clamp is too thick.

NanoTube on a TransAlp

Here's one of my NanoTubes on my buddy's TransAlp, I believe the same bike that started the Transalp modifications thread awhile back.
He's got a couple of 15 min road flares, a file, and a hack saw blade w/ a mini handle stowed.
His MegaTube, mounted on the left rear, inside of HT rack, but clearly visible, remained unmolested at a recent border crossing in Idaho where everything was opened and inspected. Cloaking option is a small extra charge.

Emailed you about local pickup. Is it still available. Your Mega Tube is the best thing I have seen out there. Joe
