Surge Guard protectors with locking hasp

We purchased a portable Surge Guard protector, model 34750, with a locking hasp accessory. Has anyone experienced a problem with these devices in terms of being able to easily plug them into the power station for the RV park and having excessive power interruptions?

Also, regarding the hasp to protect the device from theft, it appears a thief could simply unplug the power cord from the RV camp receptacle and remove the surge guard and then unplug the power cord from the trailer. Maybe I don't understand how it works.

Any advice on their subject?

A thief can and will get anything he or she wants regardless of anti-theft device. That hasp is - I believe - supposed to have a cable lock looped through it and attached to the camp electric box. It couldn't take more than 30 seconds to snip it...

I have had no problems using it and I'm several cases, it has been a huge help in proactively managing power oriblems. Good luck!

I've never stayed in a campground where theft has been an issue. Most accounts of theft from campsites that I've heard of are when someone pulls their rig around to the dump station, making it look like they've left and abandoned their gear. When they come back, their stuff is gone. I suspect that the best theft deterrent might just be a well-timed word to the neighbors in the adjacent campsites, saying "I'm going to the dump station. Watch my stuff, please." Especially if you reward them with a beer or three if you come back and all your stuff is still there.

Your choice, if you're buying. Beggars can't be choosers.

Here is what we did- the lock itself captures the surge guard- can't slip past the plug....Click image for larger version
