I think they a couple of hundred bucks, do you see a need for them in your area?

That's far more than the backflow!

For you guys who use PVB's and RPZ's, Don't you have your first shutoff line well below grade, or inside a basement?
If so, a locking valvebox would be a lot cheaper than something like this, and just remove the device and store it during the cold months.
If a fool tries to steal it with the lines hot, well then he gets what he deserves :)
My solution would simply be a bicycle U-Lock looped over the first elbow. That way you could not spin the elbow off.
If they want to steal it, they are going to bring a chopsaw, which would make short work of the hollow legs that Backflow protecter device has anyways.
