    I wasn't even sure what a puck lock was, so I searched for it and the second site that came up was a firemans forum. Someone asked how to get into the puck locks and there was about 5 different ways to get into one. The info is out there guys and the bad guys will always be looking for the easy way. We just have to be on the look out constantly.
    We only want to do it, if we can do it right.

    I took two six inch pieces of angle iron and welded them to the inside of the back door close together and use a long shank lock to keep the back locked up . Drilled a hole in the track of the of the slider door and used another long shank lock to lock it up from thr pasanger side of the cab. Keep all the expensive stuff in a pad locked cabinet inside the truck. They broke both windows out several years ago but gave up probably got scared it was taking to long, didn't lose anything. The bad thing about it is you have to go thru the truck to open the back door, the good thing is it makes me keep the truck clean so I can get thru to the back. As Otto said "you can only slow them down" is right , and thats hat I try and do. If they want the whole truck its gone. I have thought about installing a switch some place hard to find to disable the ignition, my cousin in San Diego has done it on all the vehicles he's owned and never lost one. might be the right time to do it , times are getting tough and that usually brings out all the crooks looking for easy money.

    The hockey puck locks look like they are made from the same material mag wheel locks are made of. You could super cool the mag locks with refrigerant, dry ice etc. Then smack them with a hammer and they'd shatter. Lost a whole set of mag wheels like that one real cold night. It took less coolant on a cold night. Since they took the locks with them they probably "bumped" them. and didn't want to leave the evidence behind, plus the locks have a resale value.

    When times were good hacks were buying the stolen tools

    I bet it actually is slowing down at least stolen tools and buyers for them

    Bet mugging will be going way up for an easy buck though

    Its easy to remove the mag wheel locks just by drifting a 12 pt socket onto em tight with a hammer and undoing them.
