I run a cable through the Honda handles, the gas can handles, and the extended run tank and my TT bumper.

If someone absolutely has to have them, they can get them.

Ok,, thank you. Sounds like I can try to get elaborate but in general, locking via a cable or chain thru the handle is the typical manner. I certainly have plenty of both. Plus, I'm not in an isolated high crime area, it is in a packed field of tailgaters, most of whom are good folks.

You should be fine. That's where most of my boondocking is done,
at football tailgate weekends. And as you say, most of the time there are folks around so you don't need worry about bad guys coming around.

As long as you secure your generator by chain or cable you should be fine.

In Quartzsite every winter numerous Honda 2000i are stolen. Every one was not secured which gives the thief a quick grab and run.

Have your wife sit beside the Honda till you get back. Be careful if its running, make sure that the exhaust is facing away from her.

I match the holes in the tubing and in new tubing frame, I drilled big holes at the bottom and smaller to hold the bolts on upper skin.
So the only way to get in/out is metric socket.


For a few dollars, use a Torx Plus bolt. Just don't loose the socket/wrench.

I'm REALLY surprised that no one suggested paining it yellow (I have a yellow generator for home backup).

This may slow them down as well.

So I was visiting a big Honda commercial mower dealer out in CA, and they were prepping some new mowers for a client. After everything was inspected and tested, the shop guy wheeled them outside, and use a can of brown and can of black spray paint and randomly painted over all marks, stickers, taking care to not get any paint on the engine or controls. He then sprinkled loose soil, clippings, and debris which really made the mower look like absolute ****. He looked up at my shocked face and smiled, "So they don't look like Hondas, and won't get stolen off the trailer"

The security handle plates are great. It is pretty easy to cut the plastic handle, without power tools.
The world does not know forever it was stolen, all you have to do is order new plastic case halves.
Honda sells every single part of that unit, down to the exact screws and washers.
