    I tried this in the main forum, but didn't have any luck.

    People around here keep getting there frame guides stolen. Has anyone came up with a solution to lock them? other than removing them.

    It's far easier to leave them on, because usually when I take my plow off, I'm in a hurry.

    I was thinking of maybe welding on 2 loops, truck side and mount side and putting a pad lock through.

    I prefer to leave them on, any ideas?

    I haven't had that problem, but, I think what I would do is buy a matched key set of long thin master locks, take the hair pin out, enlarge the hole a little and put a lock on each one. I may do that anyway since for some reason my right side keeps tearing up the hair pins til they fall out.
    I have locks for my lawn equipment that are really close in size I just need to enlarge a very small amount. If I do I will let you know how it works out.

    i was actually thinking the same thing when i put this plow on...they would be real easy to steal...

    that seems to be a good idea about the locks, but only if the hole is enlarged alittle bit....still seems easy to use a pair of bolt cutters...

    what i was thinking of doing was drilling a hole sideways thru bolt pieces of metal, and putting a bolt with a locknut on it...you wouldn't even need the pin then....
