Lock down permanents

Recommended Posts

I've been hearing of stolen fish houses lately...I've been thinking of building one, and I wondered: why couldn't you auger a hole in the ice and drop a length of chain through then padlock the chain to the house? One obvious reason would be that the chain remains in the ice when the house is gone, but there might be ways of recovering it. Also, does anybody build a "secure box" inside to secure valuables? A steel box with locks might discourage the smash-and-grab thieves. I'm also thinking about windows--keeping them away from the door which would force a thief to climb in the window. Anybody else have any other security ideas for houses?

Good ideas but I think all that extra security will just draw attention. If they want to get in they will. They will push your house with their truck and pull the chain right through the house or they will get a chain saw and cut a hole in the door. They also make some pretty good bolt cutters these days. My point is that if they want to get in they will. Your best bet is to take out all your stuff and leave her unlocked. This is just my opinion. Why tempt a thief...lets just not give him/her the opportunity! I would sure like to see these fools pay for their actions though....by whatever means is needed!

I think you would be better off with just some kind of coupler lock instead of the chain. keeping the windows away from the door is a good idea in my opinion, alot of the manufactured houses have that type of door and they seem to be one of the ones they like to hit. I built my own door without a window in it and used lag bolts and carriage bolts where possible to attach it to the house. Mine also has smaller crank out windows which would be awful tough to crawl through. i also have a big padlock on mine that would take quite a bolt cutter to cut through. If somebody really wants to get in they will but i figure i might as well make it tough for them ,the scum that rip off these house are going to hit the ones that are easiest to access is my thought. good luck with your house.

In england they lock down car tires with something called a clamp. You cannot cut these without ALOT of work. I wonder if a guy could get one of these. It may be expensive but well worth it when you consider the costs of houses. I think this would stop thieft of houses

Hey! Put the power of the people back in their hands!!! We all pay our fair share of taxes,RIGHT!! How about a kick back from Uncle Sam to work in conjunction with local law inforcement to go covert/ night vision all the tools and resources to keep a nieghborhood watch.... oh bad idea our license fees would sky rocket because gov. spending is out of control. A kick back would only be another smoke screen.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
