quick, easy lock down for equipment

I went to northern tool and bought several metal brackets that are designed to attach trailer springs to the frame of a utility trailer. The brackets cost abot $5 each. Screw in down to the shelf or walls of your enclosed trailer and use self tapping screws and attach them to the rails of an open trailer. I then use them to put the handles of my hedge trimmer, hand held leaf blower, or chainsaws, etc., into, and then put a long shackle lock through it. I use a green touch trimmer lock to lock up my trimmers. This has worked well for me so far and is an expensive little trick.

Email from phone then open email. Save the pic to your computer then post online. You can also use online services as well

Brackets to lock down equipment

ok, I switched to my computer and think that I got the pic to load. Excuse the poor quality, I had to squeeze in by some equipment to try to get the pic. Next time that I am in Nothern, I will write down the exact name of the bracket and the item number. Someone could cut the handle or the lock if they have long enough, but this is mainly to prevent the snatch and run thefts.

the screws in the bracket are easy to put in with no equipment in it, but would be much hard once a piece of equipment, mainly a hedge trimmer or chain saw type handle, was sitting it in. The long shackle lock work great for it also.

looks to me like a leafspring shackle will do the same...drill holes through the end and put a hitch pin lock on it ...very tough to steal

Sounds like a good idea. I try to lock down as much as possible if it prevents a theft.
