helmet lock placement

I just received a helmet lock that needs to bolt onto a 7/8 bar. It fits perfectly between the triple clamps. Anyone foresee any problems with this location???

just don't drive with the helmet still locked in.

Seems like a great idea. Please let us know if you do it and how well it works.

It is in place and works great! It is a little challenging to lock the helmet that does not have a flip face(my wifes helmet). Mine has a flip up chin bar so it is a breeze. Great idea I had!
