It works with a half or modular helmet, full face not so much.  I never use it, too easy for malicious persons to cut the strap.  Come to think of it never use the saddlebag locks or the fork lock.  Just don't keep anything worth stealing anywhere.

All my bikes have ABS.  I find that the ABS modulator's bleeder is a very handy place to hang a helmet.  I guess that to the uninitiated it may look like some sort of helmet lock.  In any event, so far my helmet has always been there when I come back.

Out of the tank bag, onto one of the rear grab rails.

You are right, but it's a pity - I have a big problem in moving a bike sideways on my narrow sidewalk :).
