    pic of the other three angle guides the outer to slide tight to the ears on the mount and the inner two slide upagainst the inside bushings(these two probably were not needed but my first idea was a little different.

    painted bright orange so people see it has a lock on it and installed i well get a pic tommorow of it upside down with the lock in it but they simply slide threw some holes in the angle iron pieces i welded on and right threw the holes for the hitch pins. the locks slide in from the outside and padlocked underneath real hard to get to to try to cut off

    Great work shame we got to lock up the plows because of some jerks wana get something for nothing. I got a great lock system here M18 or 9MM if needed. Its sucks we got to go thru all this just to keep our fams and employee's working. We got jobs why don't they get one.... :gunsfiring: :gunsfiring:

    Have you considered getting a patent on this?Yes I am serious.That I think is one of the best setups I have ever seen.Really ought to think about a patent and marketing.If you dont want to can i use it and pay you royalties?I would apply for a patent today. :waving: :drinkup:

    You know I don't see very many Blizzards around Omaha do they sell a few at the local dealership? Its shame though that we have to protect our plows from being stolen. If its not locked they will figure out a way to take it. Heck a Friend of mine had a pick-up back up, a few guys jump out grab his basketball hoop, you know the ones on wheels filled with water. Load it into the truck and drive away. Next one he got he filled with concrete.. :rolleyes:

    Very good looking piece, but...like's already been said, it's just too bad that something like that has become necessary. I'm in an area where there isn't much concern (yet) about things like that happening but I'm sure that time is coming, maybe just around the corner.
    I've also got an 810 and have fabricated some things for it too...snow deflector, wind deflector, light assembly strengthening.... It's a sweet plow as you probably know, but the bells and whistles for it aren't cheap.
    Anyway, your device shows a lot of craftsmanship. Nice work!
