Question on surge protector

I'm wondering if anyone could give me advice. I just bought a portable surge protector. Now I realize that there is the possibility that someone could unplug and take it if we were not at our site. Is there a way to latch it/lock it/disguise it? I'm not saying that a theft would happen, but I'd like to take precautions anyway. It wasn't cheap!

Thanks for suggestions.

There are several locking devices on the market...look at camping world to get an idea then shop around for better pricing.

I use a bicycle lock/ cable. I just wrap it around pedestal to take slack out the use the end to attach in the middle of surge protector. I use this at my seasonal site. I dont bother to lock when just on a weekend trip some place else.

I have the SurgeGuard clamshell lockable housing that locks the TT power cable to the EMS.

Several also just close the door on the power box and pad lock with the EMS plugged in.

I put a pad lock on the power pedestal. Most have them.

Do unlocked surge protectors really get stolen?

Anything is possible. Easy to take precautions.

I used an external one for about 5 years. Never had one stolen or never heard of anything else being stolen from a campground we were in. ON my new 33.5RETS we have an onboard surge protection built in.

We have the 34730 Surge Guard and initially I locked on using the box that came with mine but recently after getting tired of having to hook it up at the post everytime I rewired and brought it inside my rear storage compartment....power still travels thru it to get to the inside of the TT.
