Open or unlocked tool boxes make for easy targets when left on vehicles parked on streets, in driveways or at job sites – so make sure that toolboxes are secured or removed from vehicles.
Engraving tools is also a good way to help deter the theft of tools – engravers are cheap to purchase or can be borrowed from your local police station.
Also check with the supplier of your power tools. Some brands have already marked the tools with microdots and you just need to register your details with the company or you might consider buying a Microdot kit and marking your tools and other items of property.
So over this break make sure you secure your job sites and your tools, or maybe even take the opportunity to take preventative steps to ensure the security of your tools!
