Actually, that is one of the better ideas that I have seen in awhile. Not only will the lock not fail with the battery, if you do end up losing your key, you can merely cut through the chain with nothing more than a hedge trimmer. That is, if you happen to have one on hand. I wonder what had happened to the person who did this to make them resort to such extreme and unconventional measures. Maybe he just figured that if it could work for bikes all over the world, they why not put it to use on a car. Hey, at least then if it is broke into it’s only a three dollar lock away from being repaired again.

Wow, now I have to say that’s one of the more redneck solutions to locking you car door! I’m kind of surprised I haven’t seen anything like that around here. I live in rural Texas, and with some of the people around….well, you never know what they will do! It does seem a little impractical though…anyone with a pair of bolt cutters (and out here, everyone has a pair of bolt cutters, and most people carry them in their cars) could get into your truck. But hey, I guess if you have nothing else, well, whatever works. I’d just love to see someone do this to some fancy car like a Mercedes or a Lexis!
