Added Security - Drop down post

After reading several of the theft threads on here and indeed other sites I have invested in one of these. It will be a bit of work to install, I recon about 2 - 3 hours. I will put it behind my gate. It should help.

The post arrived on Friday. We plan to fit it today. Here I it is.. Looks good but perhaps I will replace the included padlock as it could be cut off as some of it is exposed.

Finished

There you go whole job from start to finish 2.5 hours and I had bitmac and concrete to break through. It is important to have the correct tools though or the job is horrible..... Used 1.5 bags of postcrete which goes off in about 10 mins so beware

One wonders why you ask but since you did it is just when I get the boats in and out. That is one of two driveways
