Novelty Item is the same as For Off-road Use Only. Those are weasel phrases used to provide a legal means for sale. Neither will be useful when defending a criminal charge against the owner. I'm glad the OP understands this distinction.

I'd try mounting it behind the rear seat. It's hidden and easily accessed, but not from the driver's seat. It's also protected from the elements and secure.

I didn't ask whether or not you thought it would be a good idea if I should mount a machete in my truck...I asked where would be a good place for a mount if I wanted to mount it. I know plenty of people who take them camping and such, but leaving it in an exposed truck bed does not sit well with me. I leave my truck when I'm camping all the time to go hiking, shoot photographs, swimming, etc. All it takes is somebody nosy enough to snoop around my truck to find a lethal weapon. Hence why I want it mounted in the cab.

Vertically behind either seat? Machetes can be bought in Sears for $10, so it shouldn't be a hot item for thieves. I think your window tint sufficiently obscures against break-in.

From what I read on the interwebs, novelty item = sex toy

If you figure out a mount, I keep a tomahawk in access cab under driver side rear jump seat. Looking for a better alternative.

Move to Alabama....everything with guns and things with blades are legal there.

Reminds me of an old Hilux I saw in the Lowes parking lot one morning before work- had a machine gun barrel sticking through the hood, and a saw-blade mounted on the grill. There was an old hatchet strapped to the racks on top of the camper shell, which was too big for the truck and was seamed up with expanding spray foam. Had a headlight banged out, and the body was all mitchy-matchy colors. Wish I had a picture to show, but my retardo-phone died a couple days ago, and the two pictures were on it. :P

*Edit: Why the heck is the word 'Lowes' highlighted? I didn't do that.

"Hidden" would be "concealed".. it has to be somewhere not concealed.
Concealed, with easy access by driver, could equal a concealed weapon charge. It does where I live.

Not concealed, easy access or not, could equal a break in to steal the shiny thing. It does where I live.
