As I look closely at the LP tanks and how that hold down bar goes from one tank to the other, with only a little grove that rests on the tanks lip, I think that all you would have to do is stick a solid 1/2" steel rod under the end of the "U" shaped bracket and with a little pressure/leverage pop it off the lip of the LP tank and remove it. I would think that the best place would be to lock the tanks down using the base of the tank to the TT's frame
Just a thought. Re thinking the lock I put on mine.

The key issue is real. I recently had my batteries stolen off the trailer. In the process I added a cable lock on the propane tanks - simple and probably not real secure master lock similar to this: http://www.amazon.com/Master-Lock-84...rds=cable+lock

I keep the keys to this and my batteries in the front storage compartment of the trailer. Just put a screw in at an angle so the key's don't fall off the screw. To me it is more about the visual deterrent than anything else...

Also got tired of the acrobatics (skinned knuckles, finger cramps, etc.) needed to R&R my LP tank. Pix of my solution (around 10 bucks at the hardware store) is attached [those are 1/8" cable, eye bolts, turnbuckle, S-hook & 6" cuts from an old garden hose]. Two minutes to take off, two minutes to reinstall. No wrist braces or bandaids!

The first accessory I added to my 1007 was a proper dual tank propane rack like most other TT's have.

$31 on Amazon. Fits right between the existing rails. Secure with a couple of self-tap screws and you are set.
