Locking Headset Spacer. The Problem Solvers Locking Headset Spacer is primarily designed to lock to the fork steerer to maintain headset adjustment. It is a compact, low profile design barely larger than a standard aluminum headset spacer. Product uses: The Locking Headset Spacer was designed for shop mechanics and for traveling cyclists. For the mechanic, it allows you to hold the fork in the frame without installing the stem and headset spacers. If you are performing a bicycle fit, it allows you to change stems without the need to readjust the headset bearings with every stem change. For the traveling cyclist, the locking spacer allows you to turn your handlebars for packing your bicycle without the need to readjust your headset when reassembling the bicycle. The spacer can also be used for storing bicycles in tight spaces; simply loosen the stem bolts and turn the handlebars to the side for stowing in a car or other small spaces. You will not need to readjust your headset when it is time to ride your bicycle again. Technical details: Low profile 1-1/8" CNC-machined AL-6061-T6 headset spacer 8.5mm stack height 34.5mm a D. to match diameter of most aluminum stack spacers 4mm stainless steel bolt; requires 3mm hex key and torque wrench for installation

ProsGood Quality and well written instructions.
I purchased this to enable me to easily remove the handle bars on our tandem allowing the headset to remain in place when the bike is being transported inside the car.

It fits in place of a headset spacer and holds the headset bearings setting.

Do what it is supposed to do. Useful but expensive.

Can I replace cable hanger?
19 Mar 2020
Currently I have a front brake cable hanger that performs this task, however I have changed to v-brakes and no longer need the hanger. I am considering this part, however my existing cable hanger looks much wider at the base - as if to protect water from getting into the headset bearings? Could this be the case? And would this lock ring do the same job, but without the hanger?
Provided it's the correct size, this should do the job, normally headsets have their own protection. You can email a photo of your setup to [email protected] and ask this question in the email.
