Bar Lights & LED Lights

Are there any ideas for securing these better to mitigate theft? Are there others that have concerns when you park your Jeep that someone is going to take tis very expensive merchandise? Just looking for thoughts

That 2nd one looks pretty good, but the problem I see with almost every other security nut out there is that they can still be removed with vice grips.

The second one is specific to that particular mounting style for the light bar, but it could be adapted to the PSC style mounting with a cup shaped washer so it would sit down inside. Wouldn't be theft proof, but it would help. You could also weld a section of tube onto the PSC mounts that the security device would sit down inside, so there would be no way to remove it without the key.

. . . and here are some more ideas:

For normally mounted lights (like single bolt units) I use locking nuts on the mounting bolt, then I replace the commonly used Allen keyed socket head bolts on the lights themselves with the Tamper Proof Torx headed bolts.
Not too many people running around with Tamper Proof Torx keys in their pocket....
