    I just added 4 HID lights to my front bumper but got to thinking, someone can just take the nut off and cut the wires and my new HID's are gone.

    question : what do you guys do ? is there some kinda lock out there? I was thinking about tac welding the end of the bolt, but what if i want to take them off ....


    thanks.

    Well you could do the security bolts but there is a easier way. Use SS hex cap screws and drill them out after the install. A easy out will make quick work of removing them later if you had to but damn near impossible to steal in a hurry. If it's a nut just drill a small hole under it threw the pipe and use the hex cap screws there. Just thread the hole install the cap screws with locktighted back nuts and then drill the heads out round. If you lock tight them it's just easier to drill the heads right off push them threw and then replace them.

    If somebody wants to steal them they will steal them but you can make it a complete PITA to do so in a hurry. Or use those crazy nuts above.
