I'm the one in charge of lock out/tag out and all electrical/mechanical work. That's my point.
So, if in a campground, I needed to work on a spots power pedestal and it was locked, if simply remove their lock. Of course if they're around they can unlock it. This has come up at my work place where a staff member locks something up simply because they want the control of it it to protect their stuff. That doesn't follow policy. Totally different than a campground though. Sorry to hijack so much. Still think the best option is a hard wired power protection system for the OP.
