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?

Yes correct, with red plastic cover

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 !!!!

These things are tricky if you don't have the longer socket to fit down them. I had one on my boat bought second hand and when I changed the engine it did take time to get off.

Was a pain and they are not needed down here in the Scillies - where is anyone going to hide it!!!

Thumbs up on the volcano from me too. Just make you sure you oil it, and any other up, and remove it from time to time, even if your not taking the engine off. Sounds like common sense I know, but all too easily forgotten !

hmm security seems to be an issue. i lost the key for my wheel clamp and it took 2 mins to drill the lock. it seems its all there to keep the insurance companys happy. i got told that lock bolts on big engines are a bit of a waste of time as if someone is geard up enough to remove a big engine and wants it lots theyd just chainsaw the transom.

You guys that are putting the locks on your outboards: Take special care to flush the keyways and tumblers (maybe even going so far as to fill the keyway with grease.)

I've got a drawbar lock on my truck that is unlockable now due to salt intrusion and corrosion. Going to have to be cut off if I ever need to remove the drawbar.

Had a similar experience with a small padlock on my fuel fill cover, but was able to soak it in acidic hot water and get it to unlock.

Don't know about UK laws, but here in the States, it's a guaranteed trip to a 1st degree murder rap, even if you get the right person.

I assume it's due to the risk to "authorized" interlopers (police, fire, etc), but rigging lethal force with any kind of automation is considered not a good thing.
