    HI
    Mate has a static and a problem with someone switching full gas bottles for empty, which is both annoying and expensive. Is there such a thing has a 'lock' to stop the requlator being removed?? I thought I'd seen one and figured if anyone knew it would be you guys.

    Cheers

    There are padlocks and chains - this would be far better means of attaching the bottles either together, or to the static chassis.

    Agree with Yosser to a degree.

    An el cheapo CCTV system and an ultraviolet security marker pen.

    Mark the cylinder. When it goes missing you have video evidence of when/who and the marker proves it was your cyclinder that was taken. Police appreciate evidence. You may also get the arse banned from the park..

    a cable lock through the handles will keep the cylinders fairly safe, but I agree marking them with something like a uv pen would be helpful to catch the thief
