Someone stole my shop vac off my truck last night. I tied and locked it down with 5/16" steel cable. I thought it would be hard to cut but nope, look like a cable cutter made a clean cut.
Any idea what I should use? May be a bigger cable? This is a wake up call for me. I used to tie all my equipment down and park it in front of the house. Will never do that again.

Sorry about your loss. Unfortunately it appears the old adage is ringing true, "A lock is for the honest man, for a thief will break it"
I am not sure there is much anyone can reasonably do to prevent theft if the thief is well armed. One thought is a tracking device installed hidden in all your valuable equipment, or perhaps surveillance cameras. the stuff will go, but you may then have capability to track the culprits and reclaim your stuff.
A junk yard dog leashed to the equip may also deter theft, but the real ass holes will "neutralize" the dog.
we live in a world full of scum. Apparently the best solution is to bring the valuables in.

Thanks, I'm looking toward a motion sensor. Not sure what I'll find but searching on Amazon right now.
Vibration sensor like car alarm is out of question because this truck has HD 1 ton spring. So the suspension is very stiff. I'm just glad it's not something expensive but this served a good warning. Cheer
