Anti Theft Devices

I had an anti theft device on my Mariner30 which retails at around 60.
The s/s barrel type with small brass lock.

Trouble is I lost the key, to remove it it took approx 3 mins with drill and screwdriver, not impressed.( Removed engine for winter storage)

Can any of you guys suggest a better alternative or named make/supplier etc

Is the engine bolted on and the lock you had the type that sits over the bolt?

Try one of these:-

but not the top one-it'd take less time to remove than your old one...


LOL That's scary

I'm not surprised it was so quick to remove-that little brass lock is sold by Homebase for 1.99 . You stick it into door locks to prevent picking from the outside.

another one to avoid

I had a similar problem last year the Sternsafe lock that my insurance company insisted I fitted or they would not cover me for theft !!! the lock seized up and it took me ... ohh less than 30 seconds to cut throught the alloy tube and get access to the bolt.... so much for an insurance recomended lock for 50 !!!!
