Wonder what the owners of the locks would think if someone removed their locks, then replaced it with their own locks?

Wonder if they have tyre levers in their plaasbakkie?  Have they showed their wives and daughters how to remove an unwanted lock?

Een van die boer in daai omgewing s ek moet 'n klomp goedkoop slotte saamry.  Breek dan die kettang en sit jou eie slot in die kettang.  So kan jy deurry, en jy kan die hek weer sluit.  En jy kan volgende keer weer deurry.  Een beter sal wees om die slot se tumblers uit te boor.  Dan kan daai slot mey enige sleute oppgesny word.  Dit sal nie die pad meer onveilig maak nie, want regte kriminele gaan in elk geval deur die hek ry met hul gesteelde bakkie.

So let me understand this clearly..... four hardened criminals are en route to your farm in their bakkie to steal some sheep and / or attack you at your residence.  They drive a few km's down the gravel road and then get to your locked 3 foot farm gate....  oh no.... what now.... they have a quick chat and decide that they should rather turn around....

Really?  WTF?

No, that is not how it works. Criminals never go on a joyride to see if they can find livestock to steal there and then. They do their homework before the time to see where an easy spot is to herd livestock, force them into a corner to catch and load them close to a road to aid loading. In order to do this they visit the area before the time on a casual drive by to scout and see. If they cannot enter the property they cannot see. If they break a lock to scout you know unwanted people were there, they know you know too and that you will probably be alert.
Livestock thieves dont drive around and pick up livestock. It is simply not that easy. After the scout, 2 or 3 have to be dropped off at or close to the identified spot, where they then herd the sheep to that spot. Once they are there with the sheep, the vehicle comes closer and stops to load.
You dont have to believe it, but to prevent free access does curb theft. Crimials are like water, they go to the easiest spots first and if there is something that makes it difficult for them, they will likely go somewhere else. I am not thumbsucking, I talk about experience.

Verstaan Bie!  :thumleft:  Nee fok.  Klink na te veel moeite.  Ek gaan maar eerder dan 'n tjoppie by Checkers kry.  Sommer dalk 'n worsie ook.   :biggrin:

Ek dink net steeds daar is 'n duisend scenarios waar 'n (onwettig - moet nie dit vergeet nie) geslote hek probleme kan veroorsaak.  Bv. 'n paniekerige toeris kies shortest distance na 'n hospitaal op sy GPS om iemand dringend by mediese aandag uit te kry.  Die fuel range punt is reeds vroer reeds gemaak.  Ens Ens ens.
