    Wanting to semi-secure this cheesy box....

    ...by secure, i mean, making it so prying hands can't get inside too easily. This is nothing more than my grocery/fetch stuff configuration, but want to do something simple with the lid to prevent the local meth-heads and tweakers from just opening and reaching in. There were no opaque ones, so I'm thinking of something just to cover it as well.

    Ideas?

    No offence but first get a dark colored, stronger box... This one is easily broken with a tap from a hard object of some sort. Look for a Rubbermaid action packer or stronger.

    Just saw where you are, and worried about meth heads. What a shame this shit is in such beautiful places like the state of WA. I know, I see it's everywhere. But years ago, this crap was in the cities. WTF is happening? It's sad to say the least. Sorry to say, but I think you know the answer. There isn't any way to stop them. Clear plastic is good so they see not to trash it when empty. Make all your stops before you hit the food store where you fill it up. Then shoot right home after you have your goods. Nothing will stop 2 or more amped up kids from dragging your whole bike away. It's hard to stop them when in need of a fix.

    Do NOT do this, but I'd feel like setting a bear trap in there. Then after a few loose hands, word on the street, Stay away from that bike....you can't do stuff like that, even though we'd like to...

    Just get the 8 gal Action Packer. You can put locks on it if you wish. Have it on one of our TWs works great.

    I would try and find some tough netting something like the orange stuff they have at construction sites used for temporary fencing. You could fasten one side and paddle lock the other. It would be hard for someone not prepared with cutters to cut it off, its tough stuff. You could also try and find some light weight cable netting and do the same thing.

    Used three 'U' bolts with wingnuts, covered it and added a couple locks.....this will work just fine for its intended purpose.
