Line Lock on M6

Anyone using a line lock on M6 SS? Which brand, how do you like it, and what features does it have? ie - Power up and enablement switches. Do you have pics of where you put switches?

Yes. SJM linelock. Great product. Main power is below steering wheel, the rest is in the cruise control.

Wow. That's a good way of doing it instead of having a secondary switch.
Any specific reason why you chose SJM and not another brand?

Nice, way to do it. Why have a bunch of holes drilled everywhere if you can use existing switches.

SJM has two styles. Any difference between the SJM or Hurst style solenoid? Or just the bracket hardware? Which bracket did you guys go with?

Any specific reason or just preference? I was aware of the Hurst, and no other brands, that's why I asked the question.
BTW - Thanks, for feedback appreciate it.

sjm is steve, he sells his brand and also the hurst...i see no reason to pay more $$$ for the brand name as he stands behind his stuff and you can speak with him in person...also as others have stated..extreme performance has installed ours into the cruise control...turn cruise on-hit brake pedal and hold down real hard -push in cruise control button on left side steering wheel and hold in while releasing brake pedal- your front brakes are now applied....give gas release clutch spin tires, release cruise control to release front brakes...using the line lock will usually throw a code for the traction control , but will reset on its own...rear tires spinning and front are locked up confuses the computer, just like a dyno does...don,t sweat it..also remember that more pressure pushed on brake pedal relates to how much pressure is holding front wheels ...if you only push moderately hard , your car will try to roll as giving gas...any questions , you can pm tyer@extreme performance, he is a vendor here,, we changed a diode or something here as 1 was discontinued or something...but easily done...forgot to mention , but i heard steve{sjm} actually does the engineering for bogarts and is responsible for the machining that is required for the 17inch bogarts to fit our camaro,s...i also picked up all the parts for UF4LIFE102SS and 2 other camaro,s from radio shack for the cruise control personally for under 10.00

Hey Mike, thanks for accepting my request to pipe up here. Very much appreciated and a fabulous explanation of how it works, and sharing schematics for using the cruise as the switch.

Do you have to open any brake lines to put one in?

the line lock solenoid attaches to the brake system on the passenger fender, you will need to bleed the system after instaling...the brake lines for the front wheels are sent thru the solenoid before entering the brake block...so there is removing lines and installing new lines...

I'm rocking the SJM. Quality is top notch and I have installed many line locks. This is by far the best. I did have to make a couple tiny mods for it to fit with the convertible strut tower brace, though. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=167705

Discussed with shop today, getting mine ordered as we speak. I like the setup it's very clean, and I really like the master switch with LED. Without the added safety of a primary / secondary switch, all I think about is hitting the line lock button by mistake while you're doing 100mph. on the highway.
