I'm not sure if this is in the right forum. Please feel free to move if not. I started being more careful with my equipment after stopping at a hardware store for about 15 minutes with 2 commercial trimmers in the back of my truck. I came back and they were both gone; the worst thing was that one of them was almost brand new. I wish I could say I haven't had anything else stolen, but at least after that I started taking a few steps to secure equipment, especially handheld equipment. When I go to the back yard I take everything with me, so that I can see it at all times. This is probably the most important of the steps I now take, however, I like to secure it in the truck, in case I do need to leave the truck unattended for a few minutes. I don't have a trailer or toolbox, so I need to use either cables or chains. I had a bicycle cable for a while. I finally noticed it was rusted through the other day. Somebody could have easily broken it and taken my stuff. So I bought another bicycle lock cable. The problem is it doesn't fit through the little brackets under my bed liner, because the loops at the end are too large. It seems most bike locks I have looked at are a similar design. Also, they usually only come in 6 foot lengths; I would really like something longer to go through the mower too. I considered a chain for this reason, but are chains easier to cut?
