    rember a lock only keeps an honest theif honest. if they want it that lil lock isnt gonna hold anyone back. snap with the cutters and its ready to hook up in 30 seconds.

    Saw them too Ryan...waste of money IMO.

    Just place a regular padlock through one (or both) of the attaching pin holes. Accomplishes the same thing for $20..

    Yeah I am not looking at buying one of these as I could make one. Also my plows are left inside during the off season, and when not in being used.

    Thats pretty cool but If I ever get around to it, I have designed one. And other than using a skid to lift it into a truck, it wont go anywhere!

    I saw it too. I think more than anything else it's a visual deterrant... it would slow someone down for a min which would probably spook your average plow driver from attempting a steal--like you said keeping the honest people honest (other plow drivers hard up for money that just pick it up with their plow truck)--but a true thief will defeat anything if they want it bad enough. Wanna improve it, they could integrate a small self-contained alarm alarm into it. Which would be great until someone sets it off in your shop at 2am!!! :D

    Wouldn't fit an RT2 like it says, either, I think he means SH2.
