Push Pole locking system

Hi all,
just came back from a great 4 day excursion w/ my friend Bob and my Waterman 18 ,to Hot , Hot Everglades. The fishing was great. The boat ran great . The one thing that I didnt feel good about was leaving my Carbon fiber pole on my boat at the Motel at night while I was sleeping. 21 feet of Pole is just too big to drag into the Motel room. I have heard of the La Marr? lock.. it mounts to your boats gunnel w/ 2 or three screws then a S.S. collar attaches to your Pole and it locks up to the Gunnel mount w/ a lock. I have seen them for approx 110.00 and would be well worth it (I plan to do alot of travelling to Glades , Lagoon etc) Any help would be appreciated.

Phil

Most guys I know use a bicycle cable and a padlock. Just loop one end around the trailer frame and lock the other end through the foot of the pushpole. Cheap and easy.

Thats what I did,
problem w/ that is the thief only has to cut the bridge of the foot of the pole to get your pole( he then can easily replace the foot and has a perfect push pole (your's)

Not good enough security for me.. too easy to walk off w/ expensive pole

I used to lock mine to the lifting eye on my bow. Stopped one theif at 3 AM in St. George Island. Never thought about them just cutting the foot bridge.
You can see it on the bow in this picture.

That's the La Marr one Mikey. It looks like the most secure setup out there right now.

I drag mine into the motel room with me. All 22' of it. The one time I was unable to get it up the stairs at a hotel, I locked it through the foot.

If the thief is gonna make the effort to saw off the foot and repair, then the thief can just as easily saw the pole in half that's locked with the Lamarr one and repair it with a ferrule kit.
