BMW Zumo Replacement for Security Screw

I came across this in another forum today and wanted to pass it on. It replaces the locking security screw on the Zumo 550 that you need that little screw driver for, with a thumb screw. The reviews on the other forum were very good. Here's the link to the order page on that forum and picture. I've placed an order and received a reply indicating the part would be in the mail Monday.

Re: BMW Zumo Replacement for Security Screw

I've had mine for well over a year now. It will secure you zumo to the mount very well. It is easy to take off when you run into the store or are away from your bike for a prolonged period of time.

It's a great upgrade and the price is right!

Re: BMW Zumo Replacement for Security Screw

I got one from here today loved it very fast handling time.

Being sold on ebay.

Follow this link to ebay:
Replacement Security Screw for Garmin Zumo 550 Motorcycle Mount.

Reason and function of this replacement screw

* Not meant to keep it from being stolen!
* No more hassling with that tiny security screw and little screwdriver!
* Easier fixing and releasing, while maintaining the Zumo secure in the holder.
* Prevents accidentally releases of the Zumo holder dropping it on the street.

* Made from the Highest Quality Stainless Steel will not rust.

* Free shipping USPS parcel post 2 to 9 days to the lower 48.

* Will ship out of the lower 48 and to other counties for an additional fee please email for price before buying.
