Our guide to keeping your TentBox secure and safe from theft
If you are concerned about the security of your TentBox, here are some great recommendations to boost security and give you a little more peace of mind.
Use security nuts
Our security nuts are a great option to decrease the chance of theft. As they require a specialised socket to install and remove, they cannot be removed with normal spanners making it harder for a thief to disconnect your TentBox from your roof bars.
Lock your TentBox in a closed position
If you are concerned about keeping your TentBox locked in the closed position, the best bet is to use some lockable straps. These act like large bike locks, and can be wrapped over your TentBox to stop anyone from opening it.
Take your ladder off while you sleep
For those worried about leaving their ladder down when they are in the TentBox sleeping, you may want to un-attach it and bring it into your sleeping set-up with you.
It is possible to do this with the TentBox Classic and the TentBox Cargo, as the ladder fixes to the TentBox easily and does not provide any support.
However, the TentBox Lite relies on the ladder for partial support, so it will need to be left down while you sleep. If you're worried, you can try using a simple padlock to close the zip.
Get your TentBox insured
For further peace of mind, you may want to consider getting your TentBox insured. Insurance policies are case-by-case specific, and can be a little tricky to navigate. We've put together a few of our tips in this article.
