Metal Net?

Anyone know where you can get a metal cargo net?

The idea would be to wrap a gym bag for example and lock it to a hole or similar.

That way, at least you have to come with pliers to take it... not just walking by the truck and look inside and take it.

that's what I was thinking. A good galvanised chain link fence would do the trick. Used to use that on Bear Bait stands in Alaska.

Most of the time te bears did not have pliers.

hi chaps,
jeez chain link! google exomesh i have used it to secure my bags in the less salubrious places of my travels as well as locking my stuff when i am away from my 90 and it packs away into a pocket.
beats carrying a roll of fencing though i don't know how exomesh would fare against a bear especially if you had cakes and stuff in the bag.

btw if you did manage to attach it to a hole could the perp just reach through it and take your stuff? help my head hurts.

regards to all
Gren

I bought some used shelving, approximately 1.5" square vinyl coated steel mesh. Cut to fit over windows (U-bolted to interior roll cage), and it keeps my dogs in and (when dogs aren't in residence) perps out.

I drive my truck in some of the more un-savory parts of DC but have never thought of going to this extreme! Is there a reason you wouldn't just go with some lock boxes and/or Tuffy? Whatcha carrying in that Rover!?!

I dont even lock my Defender. The imobiliser (motion sensor) will trip and it won't start. A window cost more than a GPS or whatever else is in the car. A good knife will cut through any soft top.... A pelican case bolted down with a lock is another option (bolted from the inside with a backing plate on the other side...

What about Pacsafe....

http://www.pacsafe.com/www/index.php...&activity_id=6


Ive been using them for years while traveling.
A little heavy for backpacking but not an issue on the truck.

You could lock it to the roof rack or in your case... interior roll cage.

Its multi-strand stainless cable...cutting it is difficult for a leatherman tool.

SO yeah it wouldnt stop someone prepared and determined...but for the casual
schmuck it does the job.

Under 75$ depending on the size of your bag:

hope it helps.

Rob

You pretty much all hit the nail on the head...from exomesh to pacsafe... well except those that said chain link!

REI.com has it.... and ebay of course.

Thanks all!
