Could do many things to deter cart theft, but if they want it bad enough it's theirs. That's the problem they feel if you have something they want, and you can buy another one. The police look at it as a property crime, so not a big deal. The best thing is keep it inside at night, and make it as hard as possible for them to get it. There are several fool proof methods but if you are caught with them you either are sued by the crook, or charged by the PO PO, or both.

A cart was stolen at an RV park that I go to for weekend getaways which got me thinking. I have wheel locks on my wheels, I have an Alarm system from BU that senses anyone sitting on the cart or even just a hair of movement of the steering wheel but besides flashing the lights and setting off the siren, the best feature of it is, if activated it kills the ignition switch, (and my key switch was also changed from the basic key type.) This alarm’s sensor wires are attached to the +OUT side of the key switch, not the solenoid. Of course I always, 24/7 have a plastic coated cable running through my seat arms and through and around the supports to prevent the seat being lifted to get to the Battery Cables, and even if they barely try to lift or cut the security cable the sensor will pick that up as well activating the alarm. The alarm works with remote key fobs and is great for places like Ft. Wilderness in Orlando. For nighttime away from home parking I have 2 LED lights on the inside of the roof that are set to motion which will light up when someone walks by and an extremely heavy coated cable lock, 7/8 thick, which I pass through the wheel, frame and something permanent like a tree. All of this is good for places that you visit on occasion but I’m sure that if someone sees your cart day in and day out sooner or later they’ll find a way to get it. At home mine is in the garage which has it’s own alarm system.

I forgot to mention that even with a key, if the alarm is set to on, once the key is turned the alarm senses current, kills the switch and activates the siren with lights flashing.

AutoZone had two types and I got the one with the brass housing, under $13. It fit right in perfectly but the lugs in the back are screw type, not slip on.

Man, that sounds heavy duty and $$. No one is stealing your cart! I'm probably too trusting at Fort Wilderness, if anything I run a kryptonite cable though my tire and onto the frame. I like the idea of the wheel lock (http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/gener...have-item.html). The only problem is would be pretty cumbersome to carry around.

yea thats exatly what im talking about..

there are 2 main thigns thieves cando to take ur cart, hot wire it and/or push it away..ifu can prevent atleast those two things from happening then u have a waaayy better chance of ur cart not getting stolen...

to prevent it i do reccomend a latch with pad lockonthe seat.. u jsut eliminated them from hot wiring it (quickly atleast)..
then u can use a thick chain and lock ur cart to something more permanent..

of course if some one wants something bad enough ..nothing will stop them.. but atleast this way ull slow them down enough to the point where it discourages them..
