Lock and Load Stops His Generator Theft!

Lock and Load 1When an unknown thief attempted to steal one of our customer’s generators, we were excited to know the thief couldn’t get past our Lock and Load generator security tray.

“Somebody tried to steal my Champion Power Equipment 73540i 2000watt portable inverter generator from the Torklift Lock and Load Maximum Security Cargo Tray attached to the front hitch receiver of the truck in the driveway. The culprit never succeeded in stealing the generator but took the five-gallon gas can instead that was only secured to the tray by a ratchet strap.” –John Patterson

Wow John! It’s unfortunate to hear that someone tried to steal your generator, but we’re happy to hear that the Lock and Load hitch mounted cargo carrier did its job and kept your Champion generator safe from theft!

Last Christmas, Torklift International was able to play Santa Claus to a deserving customer whose only wish was to get a Lock and Load generator tray for Christmas. You can read the whole story here, but in the spirit of Christmas, we secretly sent him the Lock and Load locking cargo tray. He absolutely loved his surprise and has been updating us on how much he loves his Lock and Load since then. We are excited our Christmas gift stood the test of thievery.

Lockable for Your Peace of Mind
One of the best features of the Lock and Load is that it is lockable to prevent costly generator theft. The Lock and Load comes with a high security tamper-proof lock that makes it so your generator doesn’t get stolen. John learned that the best kind of theft prevention is this generator tray:

“I'm hoping that big puck lock securing the generator to the tray helped convince the perpetrator to give up and just take the gas can instead. The additional security measures of the cable lock give me a little more piece of mind. The Lock and Load in my opinion is a very capable product of preventing theft of your expensive generator.” –John Patterson

All in all, John is incredibly happy with his generator carrier and finished his message with this wonderful statement:

“The Lock and Load Maximum Security Cargo Tray is an incredible product that Torklift has devised to help alleviate theft of expensive generators and anything else of value for that matter. Thanks again Torklift.” –John Patterson
