Protect your equipment!!!

Recommended Posts

I'm sure it's been mentioned before but as a user and a new member here's an idea for a "sticky", it's called "immobilise", you register your equipment and mark it.

 

The best marking seems to be the "microdot", you can hide them anywhere and cleverly too, ideal for tools and equipment...

 

Anyway, here's the site have a look and see what you think:

 

Immobilise

 

 

The only reason I thought of posting it "directly" is that in response to previous threads and other forums about "people searching them" then if the "annoying woodbedooers" saw that we were using things like this they might "BACK OFF" if you get my point...

It's set up by the Police to help them track stuff down...

 

Ideally put a "dot" hidden on your equipment, ie on a Stihl chainsaw somewhere you wouldn't normally look ;)

Then stick one of the holograms somewhere you can see it...

 

The idea being if it gets nicked and the hologram removed if you know where the "dot" or "dots" are you can get it back...

 

 

You register serial numbers and a full description, really helps bridge the gap between "personal" and "work" tools...

Your registering an "item" so whether it's for work or not, if it's stolen it's stolen!

I think the main point being if "something" gets stolen the Police have little to go on other than the 1000 other similar items in free circulation...

 

"One" item registered is unique and they only have "one" item to look for...

 

 

I can't afford to lose any of my kit as I have no money to replace it, being that the tools I have run into about ~£10,000 at least, and I can't afford a separate insurance policy due to financial circumstances at present, that knowing they are all registered is a bit of a relief :D

I know what you mean, every little helps, I've just beefed up security round here, extra heavy duty ground anchors and chains, cameras, trackers, alarms, screamer padlocks cable alarms etc, guess i wont be happy till i've foiled a break-in and proved it works, same as you, no way can I afford to replace kit.

yes dont make the same mistake i made, it hurts like hell when you lose everything, i still aint over it, five years on! its a dirty dirty world when a mans work gear can be nicked.

 

Even bailifs arent allowed to take your tools! an old law from when tools often cost a man a years salary and more, they also cant take your bed!
