Run a Lap

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

I didn’t like the plastic lock available to secure my new – and expensive – surge protector. So, I purchased two 3⁄8-inch-by-2-inch lap (repair) chain links and a lock. The repair links need to be placed in a vise and spread open with a large screwdriver or pry bar. After fitting one over the surge-protector cable and another over the shorepower line, press them closed with large pliers. Insert the lock and you have added anti-theft protection for less than $20.
