Recently I purchased hitch bike rack. This is my second bike rack. My first one was stolen when I left it installed on car (car parked on street).
The one which got stolen was a THULE bike rack. The new one I bought is Yakima. But I think they use same kind of locking mechanism, Details here. I do not trust these locks much. Previous one has a similar lock but got stolen.
Is there a way I can make it difficult to steal? Right now only this lock is a deterrent (and rack weight, its 50 pounds).
I could not find any product as such which addresses this problem.
I am fine with any solution(like securing the rack with car's frame with a strong metal chain), as long as it makes a strong deterrent for a professional thief.
Please suggest a solution. Too see the product visit here https://yakima.com/products/fullswing .
