Ed, try this because it has worked for me. I have 4 3 "X 8" signs on all of my trailers that say the following...." Attention thieves, if we catch you stealing, you will be shot. Any questions?" There's Glock decals on the back window of each truck as well. Nobody has messed with our stuff.

Then run a cable through the tab in the rack for even additional security.

Me likes...Though I also like the "try it and see what happens"

Isn't it great living in a state where you can actually defend your property?

Did just that. Works great and I found out who got it. They were about 3 blocks up broke down with the hood up. 3 gallons of a premium gas/sugar mixture did the trick. I was by myself and they were waiting for me to go into back yard. Soon as I did they snatched it an ran. It was the next door neighbor to the property I was working for.

I live in Memphis, TN. If you use trimmer racks that makes the theives mad and they will steal them or parts off them. I have lost gas caps, trimmer heads and gas lines cut. I now lock them in my truck topper with chains. I have no problems as of yet with my mowers I guess because they can not pick up and carry away. Bad people will follow to the good areas and wait for you to be stupid.

I have several charged capacitors on my rack. They are not easily recognizable. If anyone dare touch my stuff, they are going to get a big-time shock. One half amp at 350 volts.

Use diesel fuel, it will stop the gas engine, and is very hard to detect because the the smell of the gas is so strong will take a very sharp mech. to figure out what is going one in the fuel system.

I am interested in that if you don't want to show it on LS just send me a private note. Since these guys have hit us twice I am going to sit up some type of sting operation.
