Default Anti-theft measures

Well the sledding season is finally here. With that comes the beginning of the wonderful hot topic surrounding snowmobile theft. Its already taken place in Golden, sleds and a trailer went missing from a hotel parking lot (post already about this on SW and Snow/Mud). Brutal!! My question is, how are people making their sleds and trucks theft proof this year? I know that in the USA there are many tracking devices available but unfortunatley none to my knowledge here in Canada. Im sure there is a possibility that would be thieves may view this thread so keep that in mind when answering my question. Thank you for any responses and I hope noone gets to know what it feels like to wake up in the morning to find that some low life degenerates have taken their valued possessions. See you on the hills!

As it turns out I've given this topic some thought. I think all a guy can do is beef up your locks, disable your truck and get a good alarm on your truck and one in your trailer as well. Once they are gone they are gone. Choose your parking spots carefully and push for the hotels to provide 24 hour security, real security with fences etc not some lame a$$ $30.00 camera. It wouldn't hurt for the RCMP to get out there a bit more often and do spot checks which means everybody needs to have their sleds registered.

Baby monitor maybe although for one with good range might be a little costly. Also an Idea I had to use a shocksensor or simple car alarm and battery that would lock the brakes on your enclosed trailer.

But I think if somebody wants it bad enough it will be gone. Best bet is to make it a huge pain in the *** to get.

if your sled looks like mine, nobody WANTS to steal it.. but seriously.. lock it to the truck so its a PAIN to get off, maybe throw locks on the saftey chains as well .. and figuring out a way to lock trailer brakes on would be slick, that would make it quite obvious when they took off tires howlin.

a good lock for the tongue on the trailer, and a good lock on the pin throught the hitch should stop most.. in reality, everything can be broken off, just make it harder and less desirable.

Lojack system, python alarm, and 185 db air horn that honks for 8 mins tied to a 20lb nitrogen tank. lojack only works in area where law enforcement have the tracking device. most rural areas don't but its one safety measure. back trailers up to walls or another trailer and jack knife so nothing can be unloaded. come up with a ignition or fuel system shut off so the truck can't be started I have hidden switch to cut the ground to the lift pump in the tank. the best alarms are so loud that the thief will just leave when setting it off

FYI- truck can still run without the lift pump on. try it and see... Would be better to cut power from something else.
