    With the plow off the truck, put a padlock on the highest possible hole in the jack leg, below the horizontal cross member of the headgear.

    That way if they drive into it, they won't be able to lift the jack leg up in the air to get the plow off the ground.

    wouldnt stop me id just take it if the jackstnad broke off so be it
    i run a calbe around the pins and lock it so that way you cant retract the pins to get in and hook it up.. again wont stop everyone but you might see/hear them trying to get the cable cut

    Guard dog or one of those Rent-a-cop agencies may be able to help you.............








    J/K...there are a few guys on here that have fabricated locking mechanisms that slide into the push plates on the plow side and they are able to lock it in place, search in the pics section (i think that's where they are)

    12 gauge, and a bottle of whiskey. Now just wait for the little sh*t to attempt it, dial 911 and tell em they'd better bring the squad!
    The word will get out, and no one in their right mind would ever take anything from you again. I'll guarantee you that.:nod:

    I bought the one in the brakeandclutch link that bigdave posted above. I think it's great. It encloses the pins so the plow cannot be mounted. I suppose if someone wanted to lift it up and haul it off......that's a different story. At least this is a visible deterrent and prevents someone from driving up, attaching and driving off in about a minute.

    I just push the headgear all the way forward and wrap the carry chain around the head gear and padlock it to keep the headgear from being pushed back preventing it from being attached. Yeah a good pair of bolt cutters would free it, but even those plow locks use padlocks.

    locks only keep honest people honest, if someone wants your plow they're going to get it.

    I also use a Bladelock, and feel safer with it. As already stated, if someone wants something bad enough, they can still get it by loading it into the back of a truck or something, but they wont be just clicking into my plow and driving away.


    I assume you are with the company that fabrictes them. Is it still Ward Fabrication?

    Sure. I'm very happy with the BladeLock. Been on and off my plow many times in the past few years. Easy to use. Solidly made. I do feel the plow is safer using it.

    PM me with any details of how you would like me to submit.
