BD Battery Lock

I just order a BD battery lock. The youtube video shows how it works.

I installed the BD battery lock at the beginning of the season. Super easy and very affordable.

$50 shipping to Canada for the BD bracket? Almost cheaper to buy a new battery!

Locked our batteries on our WhiteHawk 30DSQB.....bought 8 foot piece of 1 1/2" X 1/8" aluminum from Home Depot....bent and formed a strap that can be placed around battery box and angle iron batteries sit on and locked....riveted a small hinge in the corner for ease of placing it around battery box.....also, installed cutoff switch to shut off power in case of emergency because you can't get into the batteries very quickly...realize all this is just to keep the not-so-good thief out and like someone said....send him on down to the next person in line.

Although I'm not in Canada, I agree on the price!
I think I could use a couple eyebolts and a piece of chain or the flat aluminum like jtown for a lot less.

To protect my batteries I went to Home Depot and purchased some grade 46 chain and harden padlocks. Note Home Depot sells grade 36, 46, and 76 chain. If someone wants to cut off the chain, they better have a spare battery for their electric saw.

I once lost the battery cutoff key. Had a heck of a time getting a replacement. I put a sting on the next one.

I'm using these for my batteries and propane tanks:
They're not invincible by any means, but it offers a bit of a deterrent.
