I have one of the stainless box section locks for insurance but also have a length of cable through the lifting handle secured to the eyebolt through the transom. Belt & braces !!

yes - outboard lock is no substitute for rope on engine. Especially if you are mounting it removing it sea!

I bought the Fulton Outboard Motor Lock. Widely available at 30 or less. Not the most expensive and probably not the very best, but quite impressively made. The boat won't be left unattended for long periods with the outboard fitted.

I ended up getting a Masterlock from Barnett Marine. Works ok, doesn't rattle like some, is a good deterrent but a snug (tight) fit over the clamp handles on a Suzuki 20. Worth checking if fits over Honda clamps.
