Now the thief has to snip a chain and linset? Thatll stop em, is it on a pallet and "installed"?
I see it now thats not a pallet lol.
at least it's yellow for safety!!!!
The chains just a few more cents worth of scrap steel.
Is that chain Steel or Plastic?
Believe it or not, it is required to secure condensers from movement. Nobody does it much but it is in the code. Also, a growing number of communities near flood zones and hurricane-prone coasts are requiring condensers be tethered. It may slow down the meth-head theives for a minute. Also, is everybody installing tamper-resistant caps on the condenser taps? Code required.
Most mfrs. have some form of very inconvenient bolt holes at the base of their condensers where you could conceivably Tapcon it into a concrete pad. At least that way it isn't blocking access to the stuff you may need to get to.
Is this a state code? I haven't herd about it in Maine. I think I have replaced 2 condensing units since 1972 due to theft. Both in Windham on Rt 302.
Seen lots of empty houses with copper wire and pipes cut out though. Cops can't catch them because they are professional thieves. :angel:
