WOW I have been looking for this for a while Batteryshackle very secure RV battery lock check it out on amazon...!

Editor's Note: Here is some more information on the Batteryshackle this 1/8th of an inch thick steel lock is the perfect way to protect your battery. One size fits most batteries, but they offer a 27″ so as to better conform to a smaller battery.

The Battery Shackle has a hinge that makes it accessible with zero horizontal clearance. No tools are required, and it takes three padlocks.

It is impossible to move without grinders, bolt cutters, or a cutting torch, so you know your battery is secure.

The Battery Shackle comes in three pieces:

One that goes underneath

One that goes on top

And a bar that goes through the middle of the battery boxes.

It is very user-friendly and easy to install. Typically under 2 minutes- no tools required.

It is available for single or dual battery configurations.

Battery Shackle
by: JEFF - Bakersfield

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.
