How does everyone keep their portable dishes from walking away during the night?

I bought a heavy duty chain with BT that notifies my iPhone if the cable is cut. It also has a loud alarm. $40 on Amazon.

I have a nylon coated steel cable with loops on it that is about 3/8" - 1/2" in diameter and about 25' long.... It gets locked to my frame, BUT as they say, Locks keep honest people honest....

If someone wants it more than me, they will find a way to take it.

I'm sure it happens, but I've not yet seen a report from anyone that had one stolen.

Same here. Sometimes I use it. Sometimes not.

Help me here. Why is it now a "pain in the butt"? Does it no longer work? Did it not work on the roof and you had to move it to the floor? Is the "pain" caused by trying to secure it? The OP wanted to know how to secure one of these things.

My cousin moves his up to the roof of his trailer each time he sets up. It is not an easy thing to walk away with now but it is a "pain" to set up each time. He also uses this same antenna on his camper so it has to remain mobile.
