A friend had his battery stolen from his trailer as it sat in his driveway. Thieves cut the cables and walked away with the battery in seconds. He purchased a battery shackle to prevent future thefts. I went ahead and got one as well. The ease of installation of this device is amazing. Battery thefts in this area are on the rise and this is a "must have" item.
