Default How do YOU lock stuff in your bed?

This is NOT i repeat NOT a thread about getting a cover or anything like that....

i just want to know how you lock things in your bed.

i use a long cable that is locked to my hitch and i line a chain or another cable through my anchor points for a double lock.

Mountain bike is usually locked in the truck but after having it stolen its not locked for very long!

I never carry much in the bed that needs to be locked. If I do, I have a tonneau cover that I can put on the truck in advance.

seeing of other places or ideas of locking stuff...having a cable hanging a few inches under my hitch isnt that great but it does the job...just sucks to drape it over the tailgate

Unfortunately, if a thief wants something bad enough, he'll get it. There is absolutely no humane, legal way to keep a thief from taking your stuff. All you can do is make it harder for them, in hopes to deter their plans. It's a shame shooting thieves isn't legal anymore.

They'll still get it. Put plexiglass over your bed, thieves will cut through it. Same with plate steel. Even if you come up with the most unbreakable locking system, the thieves will just steal your truck and buy themselves time to figure out your locking system.

Not trying to be a negative Nancy, just trying to convince you to not waste your time/money.

I just lock my toolbox, lol.

You know those things that you stuff inside those tubes so when people open the tube, they come flying out? I can't for the life of me remember what they are called, but I want to get some of those and put them in my tool box so if a thief were to open it, it would be like "SURPRISE! CHECK OUT ALL THIS AWESOME STUFF!"

I wouldn't care if it did it to me, because it would be like a party every time I wanted to grab a tool. Instead of checking out the awesome stuff it would be like "YEAH! CUT THAT PLYWOOD WITH YOUR SKIL SAW!" "GO GET'EM WITH THAT HAMMER DRILL!"
