Trail Cam Security Box

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd share some hopefully helpful info on trail cams and security.

 

Just started to wander into the trail cam world and so far very impressed.

 

Initial outing captured a buck & doe early morning, the latter was in darkness but the cam picked it up in black & white. Images to follow when I have enough.

 

One major issue I have is security, or rather lack of it! So I set about trying to get a metal security box from the usual outlets. Unfortunately I couldn't find any that suited this cam so I set about manufacturing one.

 

This is the results:

Its a modified petty cash box I had lying around. Drilled drain & securing holes and have a cut proof motorbike lock for securing round a tree. It's finished in matt black heavy duty paint. It'll be installed at around 9 feet and camouflaged.

 

Incidentally eye level cams don't have great success rate...deer are visually aware of them & residual smells spook them.

There's a great video on utube of this.

 

It isn't foolproof but it will hopefully put an opportunist thief off!

It looks good mate but I would be tempted to put a self tapper through it aswell. Rather than relying on that lock.

But in all honesty if they want it they will take it.

Good idea and a cracking job.

Agree mate its a crap lock but it will be 9ft up a tree. I'm fortunate as its in the middle of nowhere.

Lol. That may be ok then. Lol

 

They would have to be real determined then.

Bolt croppers. Hammer. Screwdriver.....oh!! And a ladder!!

 

Nice idea.
