I like his videos! The cheap tire clamp locks he pops them open scary quick.

Then off they go to sell the stolen trailer for money and/or drugs. My son says the experienced thieves can steal the trailer and have it ready to drive far away in way under 15 minutes.

Good luck protecting our valuable asset!
My neighbor is a roofer. One man show, he is also cheap, rather relax than fix something. The coupler on his dump trailer has been broken for over a year. He just wraps his chains around the tongue and goes. Scary thought about what might happen.

I am lucky I keep mine in a fenced yard under a carport. Door is connected to my SimpliSafe and I have a camera. I am in a stilt house so like being in a tree stand. The best part I keep my 12 ga pump at the door. As a back up
I keep a watch bear in my yard.

I bought a $100 Kryptonite chain lock for my wife's ebike based on his review.

About 9 years ago, our county sheriff attended a meeting of law enforcement officers and in that meeting he happened to ask the question, "Do you know how many concealed weapons permits there are in the city and county of San Francisco with a population of a little over 700K people? ZERO., If you're lucky enough to live in Los Angeles county, there's one permit issued for every 36,700 people. In our county, there's 1 permit for every 39 adults." I'm certain that number has increased in the intervening years. No wonder our crime rate is low.

We were going to get another dog to alert us, but I like your idea. Looked on Amazon, couldn't find any watch bears offered there.

I'm sure those stats are similar for most rural areas. Ever been in WI's north woods? Everyone carries up there. Many of them open carry. My point is, meth heads don't care. Don't let your guard down.

Probably all the Amazon watch bears are stuck on a container ship!

San Francisco actually has a city ordnance stating you are not even allowed to own a weapon in City Limits.. But the ordnance isn't valid for those of us that are licensed CCW holders from having your firearm on possession within public areas in their city. Kind of funny

NY is the same freakin way. On my 12 acre camp
I cannot have a handgun. What BS. Thank God my fulltime home is in Fl. I had to buy 10 round clips for my SW MP 22. It kinda blows driving thru blue states when I am used to carrying fulltime here.
