Put the cap on the bumper... drill a hole through both and top and bottom and put a 4 1/2" bolt through it... this will keep the cap in place on the road

On my 230SL I took sheet metal screws and put them in the two raised portions.
Leave a little bit sticking up to catch on the sheet metal bumper. Never lost one in 13 years. Also I get screen scraps and silicone them to cover the hole, keeps creatures with stingers out of the bumper.

Those Master locks look like a little 'overkill". They would do the trick, though.

I used to store the TT at a storage facility. I have heard stories about poeple getting their TT's and fivers ransasked-just trying to be proactive. I'm not worried about when I'm camping. I store it on my Dad's property now so I probably don't need the locks anymore.

Drill a small hole through both ends of the plug- Cut a length of clothes hanger wire and insert it through the holes in the plug after it has been installed in the bumper- Bend the top of the wire into a "T" so you can grip it to remove when needed- The "T" also keeps the wire from disengaging- The wire will hold eveything inside the bumper for a lo-o-o-o-ng time! Have used this trick for over 60 years and never lost anything! Good luck! Don

Where we are in Az and you have to lock everything down that is useable. You name it, motorcycles, quads, rails, chairs, BBQ's, propane tanks, trucks, bicycles, anything in an unlocked vehicle, like I said, you name it.

Uh oh, am I going to have to worry about someone taking our propane tanks off the camper while we sleep?
