Default Re: Battery Theft : The new target?

How about welding a threaded wheel stud onto the battery holder and then using locking wheel lug nuts, same as the ones used to prevent theft of alloys, to secure the battery.
The design is similar to the existing battery holder assembly except with wheel studs and lock nuts.

A couple of battery thieves in a locality in Bangalore were foiled by some street dogs; one even bit one of the guys. So they spread poisoned biriyani around. Four dogs died. Fortunately, they were caught by the cops and confessed.
