The idea is to change the thought pattern of the intruder. Instead of them being task orientated about their job, suddenly they are thinking about their own self, and seeing the bars, will retreat...
I’m having a little difficulty visualizing how the hasp & eye interface for interior locking. Is the eye on the slider (hasp on grate), with the slider pulled back just slightly, for locking?
A photo would help (me).

I think you’ve exactly nailed the psychology of deterrence!

I agree with you gbanker, I must lead a sheltered life, or a lucky one. In the eighties while in the navy,I have wondered through Central Park (Drunk) with no hassles, accidently through a part of Harlem (drunk) also with no hassles (though some dudes did hail me a cab to get me out of there...lol. Half the time we don't/forget to lock our house up when we leave...security is just not on my mind at all. I have never neen worried in Africa. The only trouble I ever had was in Liverpool England just random mindless violence in a bar easily handled when I got back on my feet (the bouncer was a different matter...lol he won handily...lol).

I think when you expect trouble it happens, its like your expectations are a challenge. On the other hand acting meek draws the bully....its a balancing act I guess.

I'll stick with my little padlock on my companionway...you never know when I might lose my key and have to break in....lol....Allan

Yes, it is. We are setting up the boat to sail past Somalia and up the Red Sea. Some folks on this forum would prefer to have machine guns mounted on their foredecks and others suggest don't even lock up.

It is a balancing act

We are only using our screen where we feel it appropriate


Gord: It's pretty simple at the moment, just 2 padlocks, one through the existing fitting and one conecting it to one of the bars. I might get something else worked out, but its simple.
