F850GSA TFT Display Anti Theft Brace
Currently available in black powder coated stainless steel.
Regretfully the BMW TFT Screen is only held in place by three circlips, believe it or not! These can be easily removed by hand and the unit stolen, with a replacement cost of around £1,200. There has also been accounts where the unit has been simply be ripped out, regardless of the fasteners!
In the last few weeks we`ve heard of more and more tales of woe where lads have had their screens stolen so we set about coming up with a solution.
Having taken advice from our customer base and loyal supporters, not only was an anti theft brace required but many suggested that we included a sun visor - which we`ve done as an option.
What we`ve come up with is a product that, as usual, is over-engineered. Both Mick and I explored prototype options on materials and thickness`s and decided on no compromise, it had to be made from 2mm thick(powder coated) stainless steel. It carries a weight, including the visor, of nearly 250g however it is reassuringly substantial and robust compared to other material options yet remains cost effective compared to titanium.
The anti theft brace works by physically stopping the TFT Screen from being removed outwards from the dash. Even if the three circlips are removed the screen cannot be removed due to the brace.
The brace uses two existing (no need to drill) mounting points along with a feature that stops the brace being rotated around on the two fixing points, exposing the TFT screen.
It comes with fasteners and spacers for fitting.
