Battery Lock for Travel Trailer

Looking to secure my Travel Trailer Battery with hopefully a lock of some kind. Any recommendations? Just hate to have it get stolen the day I decide to go camping. Doing a little preventative security now.

well there are ways to make it a little harder to remove than a pocket knife i put two plates one on top and one on the bottom some thread all rod and some lock nuts hoping it will make it a little harder to steal and may discourage the bastards from stealing it again

I just replaced my 12 volt battery with two 6 volts and purchased a couple battery locks from this company... http://www.b-drvbatterylock.com/

Then there is the pain in the butt method...

At Walmart and auto parts stores find an adapter that attaches to the battery posts and allows the attachment of cables to a stud and the cables are secured by a wing nut.

Then in only takes a minute to remove the battery and either take it home or store it inside the trailer. I'd put it on a mat of some kind to avoid getting the trailer dirty.
