I have read several posts about stolen sleds and thought about how I protect mine and what others may do to protect theirs.

I realize that if someone wants to steal a sled they are going to steal a sled. I believe that most sleds are stolen on impulse. Someone happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and the thief see's easy pickin's or decides a little "joy ride" would be nice.

I have four long/standard locks that I use to protect my sleds. I place two locks through the safety chains into the hitch. If someone wants my trailer they are going to have to cut through two locks. As far as the actual sleds go I run one lock through the pin holes on the bottom of the trailer top through the bed. If someone wants to open the trailer they are going to have to cut two locks.

So, I am interested in hearing what others do to protect their sleds from the Cat Burglar.

Alright, to be "brand neutral" or the "Doo Burglar" or "Poo Burglar" or "Yami Burglar" :D

I keep mine locked in my shed. In the shed they are bolted to a concrete floor. No windows in the shed and solid door locks.

Right now because I have no shop or garage to keep my sleds in, I keep it covered and tarped on the open trailer locked front and back with kryptonite cable locks front and back, trailer is backed right up to the house with the tongue on the ground and either the truck or the car backed up over the tongue and touching the deflector. The hitch has a lock on it and one tire is normally off the trailer. Its not 100% safe (what really is) but if someone wants it they are gonna be there for a while.

I don't really do anything to keep my sled from getting stolen. That is what insurance is for. Plus in Old Forge most people aren't stealers.

A little paranoid are we? Don't worry, just keep from doing what the voices in your head keep telling you to do.
