CatiaCarpentry and Criminals

After an unfortunate break in the Miami Metro Aera, I was looking for ways to make stealing things out of a locked vehicle a little harder. A quick Catia Sketch and couple of 3/4inch MDF boards later, I am happy with the result. While Ethan Hunt would probably be able to get in, it does keep my belongings out of sight for the ordinary street thug. While MDF is not the hardest wood, the box does have some metal bracing and is put together, perhaps making it not worth the effort for most criminals.

The Break In:

The Truck "Vault"

Catia Model and Final Install

An advanced "Arnold" Security system was proposed but could not be realized due to budget restrictions.
