Seems like one of those cameras you can buy to help you back up to a trailer might be close to what you are looking for here. Most guys don't look that closely at the tow vehicle when they are trying to steal stuff.

I wonder just how many thieves read these forums to get ideas on how to steal our stuff quicker from us by learning what products are good and which are easier too defeat?
You are right!

Charge and mount one these ( http://highenergycorp.thomasnet-navi...mic-capacitors ). It's the wire leads coming out of the capacitor that will give a shock. The capacitor can be mounted to the rack with duck tape, but make sure the wire leads are about 1/8" apart from each other and in an area that a thief is likely to touch them. Voila!

Some company was making a setup that used a diamond plate locker that enclosed the power heads. I can't find them right now. It was a slick set up , but pretty pricey if I remember correctly.

Along with shocking the whizz out of them, fixing a trail cam like those used for hunting inside of the cab of the truck and facing the trailer would be very beneficial to law enforement when they show up, and they might even get a good laugh at the guys face as he's getting the shock.

I want to come and watch that!!!
IDK why you are having problems with those racks. I can leave my rig in the walmart parking lot and come back and everything is there. Its a matter of keeping stuff under padlock. I am using a rack very very similar to yours. Maybe its different in the area I work (80K people) vs. in the city. Only thing i've had stolen was a gas can with a couple of gallons of gas in it...they walked right past 1k worth of handhelds

[QUOTE=trooper8870;4482414]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.[/QUOTEu]

Sugar does not dissolve in gasoline, it's a myth. I tried it once, I put some gas in a jar and a lot of sugar and watched it for weeks, nothing happened.

Never tied it but I was once told that syrup in the crankcase oil will do the trick. Something about it turning into an emulsion and crystallizing where it gets hot in the bearings.

Mothballs in gasoline is another trick that is suppose to make the engine run like a raped ape for a will then it will size up. Checked snopes nothing about mothballs in gasoline.

If you really want to disable an engine just add a lot of water into the gas tank. The engine will not run on water.
