sand ladder lock?

How do you secure your sand/bridging ladder from theft while on the road? Pics?

You need a Sandblechhalter


GMB-MOUNT.de

its nice stuff btw.. and you can use you Sandblechhalter as a table on the side!! when properly equipped with the Klapphalter

Or you could use a home made version and a lock but having a Sandblechhalter just sounds better.

ymmv

How do you have them mounted? If they are mounted on some kind of stud, you could just drill a hole through it and put a small lock on it.

This is what I use and it's most excellent! I bought mine from muduk but it doesn't look like they carry it anymore.

I used the ax and shovel mount sold by Baja Racks. Worked just fine to clamp two MOD PSP type sand ladders to the side of my rack.

I've been working on some brackets to locate the ladders over the windows for added theft/ingress protection. I like the hinge idea but don't think I need it.
Over the last couple of days I've bent steel, drilled holes, made pins, drilled holes and am about ready to drill the roofsides( I hate putting in more holes!)

I've looked into that. I don't think the bottom can be free it needs to be held. There is enough room under the tub capping to slip some steel(flat J hook) and if a good tensioner could be devised it could hook the drip rail and the tub capping with no holes drilled. Maybe some thing like the flat steel with threaded rod welded on and a threaded connector. That would have to be hidden behind the sand ladder to prevent theft. If my thought process is correct the threaded rod would have to be left and right hand bits. Similar to a turnbuckle.

Nice! Anything that circumvents drilling new holes is always better.
