Locking d-ring shackles

I had d ring shackles on the front of my arb bumper. I know you are supposed to mount shackles on there anyway but i strengthened the mount. Anyways i have my truck here at college and i went to go work on a light wiring issue today and noticed someone decided to stew both my shackles and kick both of my rigid LEDs. The lights are fine because rigid duallys are tough as nails. So, i am going to order locks for my rigids and my pro comp light. Now even though shackles arent particularly expensive, id rather not have another set stolen, but i cannot find locking shackles anywhere. Has anyone ever seen/heard of any kind of locking shackle?

No idea on locking shackles. Just do what I do and keep them in the truck until you need them.

I've never seen locking ones, but you can replace the pin with a safety bolt - just makes it a hassle to remove, but can be done if someone is persistent... but then the risk of vandalism increases.

I think i may try the safety bolt idea. I like having my shackles on the truck, and at least the chance of theft decreases a little bit.

You can go to a boat store and buy a self-locking or allen head shackle in stainless. Expensive, but uses an allen head screw to lock. They come in different load capacities and can be found in the sailing area. Some will referr to them as a sail shackle.

That's a shame that people just don't leave other people's stuff alone... I mean unless they have an off road rig what could they possible want with your shackles, right?

Anyway, yeah a safety pin shackle might be the best way to go because then at least college kids couldn't take it off just to be mean. Someone with a tool would have to be intent on taking it.

Something like this maybe:

Yea i know man its sad, they're not even that expensive but its the point that someone had to steal them from me. Whatever..but yea i looked at the sail shackles and those may be a bit expensive, i like the looks of that shackle with the safety pin though. I am going to go check a couple stores for those.
