Lock for Battery Box?

There is a "PowerHouse AT Group 27 Battery Box" on the tongue of our new 154BH which seems to be only secured by a nylon strap that anyone could take off (and then remove the battery). Is there any modification to the box that I could make to make it secured, or is there any kind of locking replacement strap that people have used to secure the battery? I've searched around a bit but haven't found anything online yet.

Lock for Battery Box?

I just pull a chain tight and lock it. I know it wont stop everyone but it stops most. Also i found if you use the nuts instead of wing nuts they tend to leave them alone cause most of time thief's aren't caring tools.

I use a heavy cable lock. I know they can take it if they really want it, but it is easier to steal an unlocked one. I also lock my propane tank.

Just bought one of these, I had been looking for something to secure the battery. Looks like it should fit the bill.

To follow up on this old thread... I did purchase the bracket from http://www.b-drvbatterylock.com/ and installed it without many problems. Its a little tough to get mounted on the trailer side (you have to jockey around the front of the trailer a bit), but the hitch side is no problem.

Here it is on my 154BH.
