BRS, the alarm is only $59, wheel locks $10 and the cable and lock for the seat was under $20. The heavy duty cable was originally for my Harley but I never used it for it.

I don't want any major hardware to lug around...just a deterrent. Maybe a good ole "kriptonite" lock through the rims? Any help out there? I like kill swithces but carts at 1200lbs are pretty easy to roll with a little help...even onto a trailer.
BRS... me being a locksmith... there's really no way to keep "Them" from taking your cart...

In all honest opinion... what I did is:

1) full coverage insurance (about $50.00 a year)
2) supply your ins. agent with pics of your cart, and the cost of the upgrades.
3) hope for the best!

I have to deal with people NOT getting their stuff stolen on a daily basis...
It works most of the time... but there's always a few that are "determined"!

You can put all the security stuff on your cart that money can buy...
it just makes "them" want it MORE!

I just hope it won't happen to you (or mom) again!

my 2 cents...

BTW...

I chain the frame of my cart to a good sized tree,
AND... put it in maintenance mode when it's at the campground!
(I don't want my cart stolen either!)

I havn't had to deal with this yet but have considered options.

Any lock that is obviouse can be gotten into, but if it can't be found it can't be broken into. Hide a switch keyed or not. I have thought about one of those $4 dollar battery disconnects with a key put under the seat where it couldn't be seen. If this is done they can't hot wire it either. Here is the one I've been considering, my hesitation has been the amperage. http://www.harborfreightusa.com/usa/...%20Accessories But any hidden switch should work and there are other brands that may be higher amperage.
Found this while doing a search for the plastic one. http://www.watsons-streetworks.com/battery.html

The other thing I have thought about also is locking a tire to the frame where it couldn't be seen. Not necessarily with a chain or cable, but maybe a rod. (I've got a tool trailer I've been wanting to lock from the inside. Hitch locks don't stop someone that's determined) Or lock the stearing underneath with it turned hard over in one direction. (They could push it but they'd wind up back where they started)


I suppose I shouldn't have posted these "secrets" on a public forum, huh

Thanks all. Some very good ideas here! I like the "kill switch" idea, especially if that prevents someone from bypassing or hotwiring the cart. Is there any reason these kits would not work on an electric cart. Dumb quesiton, I know, just thinking about how it wires to batts. in series as opposed to a 12v.

I would put it in the cable that goes from (-) to the controller. That would disable it from being jumped.
