Outboard lock for Mercury 50hp

Hi,

I need a lock to go on these studs, does anyone know of one that would be suitable?

Thanks

Phill

You'll prob find it easier bolting the bottom holes through and putting a lock on those bolts.

The bottoms already bolted through. Which lock is best for this?

I use one of these:-

Far cheaper than the Volcano locks and works like a car wheelnut lock with a special socket.No lock mechanism so won't seize.

I understand that but at the moment its too easy to take. That and my insurance requires an outboard lock to be fitted, although if it does get nicked how you prove one was fitted is beyond me.

I suspect if you've got the key for it,the remains of the lock or no transom that's probably enough proof.

When we had a load of fuel stolen the thieves took the cut lock as the bolt cutters leave a unique "fingerprint" that would connect them to any other crime them cutters had been used in.

I don't think I need a "proper" lock just something that prevents anyone from walking up and taking it.

Took me longer than I thought to get one of THESE off. Didn't have access to power so it was a hammer and chisel job.
