  • Clamps/Secures bike with a 21" front wheel
  • Works with a flat front tyre
  • Designed to use in a van, ute, trailer or even your workshop floor
  • Once 2nd over-cam grey lever is applied the bike can not be removed
  • A lock can be added to stop the disengagement of the arm and bike removal
  • The bike rides secure without tie down (which can still be used) and can be removed in second
  • No pressure on springs, while your suspension still absorbs movement
  • W340mm x H505mm x L400mm
  • Wheel strap included for extreme conditions


Please Note: In some extreme cases it is possible for the clamped wheel to slowly turn in the clamp and loosen off. To prevent this we suggest using the supplied wheel strap which should go over the front horizontal section and through the spokes before tightening as shown in the photo.
This will ensure the wheel can never rotate.

Can't beat the clinch

I brought this product with skepticism, purely because of the type of roads and terrain I drive on. I can honestly say that this product is simply the best when it comes to restraining your bike on the back of a ute, I'll never use tie downs again! I would highly recommend to anyone to buy this product to secure your bike. Awesome! Thanks for a great product

Lock the puppy down

We converted our bike trailer to Ballard moto clinch with 3 of these. They certainly make loading and unloading very easy and free up heaps of room on the trailer. They do take a little getting used to as the overcentre cam determines how aggressively and how far back on the tyre the clinch engages. My advice is make an effort to get to know the thing. They are a great idea, I like the simplicity and the room they create but one word of caution - lock the clinch (grey arm) down and forward. I have had 2 of them come loose. Actually I lost a bike off the trailer, luckily at very slow speed so no harm done - but could have been a complete cluster.

Hi Terry, We remember talking to you earlier about this and sorting things, but for our customers sake we wanted to explain what we found out and what we’ve now done. So Geoff Ballard headed this up and after extensive testing it was found that if the bottom surface where the tyre would sit is of a slippery type material then after some time (and a lot of movement) the bottom of the wheel can eventually rotate backwards and it can loose its hold. So to fix that rare but certainly possible situation happening we have been supplying an added wheel strap with all Moto Clinches for more than a year now. With this simple and quick to fit strap added the wheel will never be able to move. Regards, MXstore!
