    No problem. If the keys are in the box, i do not see how it will be snagged since the car will not be moving. ;-)

    I wish I had that option. I guess I will have to get a different car!

    most cars have hooks on the front or back of the car for a tow truck chains. Look under the bumpers and there should be there. This would work.

    Scubamarc, knowing me I would leave the lock box on and get it snagged. I forgot about the tow hooks...hhmmm. I have a magnetic box on my car now for an extra truck key and house key. I might just invest in one of the lock boxes and give it a whirl.

    The hitch safe looks like a target. It may bring attention to the fact that there may be something locked inside. May be good for the petty larcenist, but not those involved in auto theft even with the dust cover hiding the dials.

    Hadn't thought about that. I guess if they want in they will get in one way or another. Not having an ignition key won't stop a pro from starting your car, just slow him down.
    I was at the lock shop today and found a smaller version of the lock box. Didn't buy it but thought about this thread.

    If someone is going to take something, the window is easier to break that a combination lock.

    Yes.

    But if someone sees this they may think something of value is inside and it may attract unwanted attention to your vehicle.

    I parked my Jeep on Gun Beach in Guam. I left the windows down and the doors unlocked because I knew it was a haven for thieves. They jimmied the door anyway and then broke into the glove box with a pry bar. It didn't even have a lock on it. Sumana Beaches.

    I do the same in New York City, the glass cost more than anything in the car. Take whatever you want, but please do not break anything.
