Very good idea, and creativity! Should work great. But a lock only keeps an honest thief out... Good luck man nice looking toys!

I had a deputy buddy of mine come by and bring me tons more of these gun locks. If anyone needs one of these setups made, send me a pm. I have extra parts sitting around from the R&D portion of this project. It's free if you're local.

Great Idea

Nice job on the lock and location. Not to hijack this thread, but how do you like your Smittybuit winch? I am in the market and was thinking about their new H2o Comp model. I've run through the threads, but saw your unit and hope you can provide some input.

I'll be honest, I've never had to use it and I hope I never will but I got the lifetime warranty and I'm satisfied with that.

Chatroulette this is not!

My fairlead has holes in it like the ones shown in the bottom. There is a bolt going through it and then through the jack. Does your fairlead not have holes in it? You can always pull the pins that hold on the vertical standing rollers and replace them with bolts and the brackets of your design right to the top of the fairlead.

Yep. Pilot holes and I used hex head self tappers that were much bigger than the holes. I can take a pic tomorrow if needed.

I don't mean to rain on your parade.. but from the pics it kinda looks like you could just use the gun lock to lock the jack directly to your fairlead, completely negating the need for the eye nut?

Then maybe you should try reading the text where the pictures are explained, or is that too much work?
