The best suggestion on this thread so far.

Still would not stop them though, if they put the effort of stealing other people's property into a hard day's work, the world would be a better place.

Rant Over!

It seems that no matter how sophistacated ati theft and immobilising systems get theives will and do find a way around them. With tractors and farm equipment, tools and other workshop equipment the most effective deterrent is putting obstacles in the way to make the would be theives take more time to get at the items. Statistics show that rural thefts are on the decline as people are being made more aware of the fact and are now more observant and neighbours working together keeping an eye out for the suspicious and unusual. A dog will bark and a couple of geese in the yard are good alarms, movement sensitive lighting is a good deterent and there are battery operated laser system alarms that you can fit across your gateways now as well.

CB was stolen
found in next village
all the cab linings ripped out by the thieves looking for tracker
They did not discover it because it did not have one so the abandoned it
Police came and had it towed to safe compound
This is where the real thieving started
Greedy b*****ds wanted £1,000 for towing away and safe storage

If the cb was found in the next village then the theives must have been fairly local. Police wanting payment is adding insult to injury, hope you were able to tell them to stuff it!

An idea that I have, purely by accident, is the removal of the gear stick with two gears selected and a blanking plate over the top. DB gear sticks wear on the tip and my loader often slips over the top of the selector allowing another gear to be selected.
A plate over would certainly slow a thief down amongst other deterents.

You should not be able to select two gears at the same time because of the gear lock. Your gear lever just slips through the selector jaws it does not go into another gear, unless someone has removed the gear lock.
