Surge Protector Protector......

HI Forum!

I am ready to purchase a surge protector and am interested in the Progressive SSP-50XL....however, I'm wondering how I'm going to secure this when in's not cheap so i don't want to have to replace it ! Does anyone have this model or similar and how are you keeping it secured ?

Thank you for any suggestions !!

There is a metal tab on the male plug end with a hole in it. You can use a cable and padlock to secure it to the park pedestal. It won't stop a determined thief, but will slow them down.

I use a cable type bike lock. Before you go to the store, measure the opening in the metal tab. The first lock I bought was too big to fit through the metal tab.

Get something where the lock is as water proof as possible with rubber covers, etc. Last thing you want is to hook up your lock to keep your expensive EMS from being taken and then find when you are trying to leave that the lock is rusted shut...

I secure mine with a couple of heavy duty cable ties. Easy to cut with a pair of cutters but so are most cable lock devices. It will deter the casual thief.

I hook mine to the trailer's power cord while it's still rolled up in the rear compartment and then use a separate 30 amp rated extension cord to connect from shore power to the Progressive power monitor. That leaves it all locked up and out of sight.

Of course, this is only possible because my old Airstream has a power cable that is fixed to the circuit breaker panel and routed through a hole in the floor when in use. I just bring the extension cord up through that same opening.
