    Im getting ready to mount a gas can on my tire carrier and was curious about security. One - someone stealing it and Two - someone syphoning gas out of it.

    I seen a rack type holder with a bar on top. I was thinking of modifying my USGI carrier with a similar bar. Here is the rack:

    Any other suggestions or did the mil. ever make a way of securing their gas cans?

    I like this shelf type that they built. hmmm. more ideas spooing out of me. lol

    Military security system is called a M16 and a M9 (berretta 9mm)!

    I am looking for NATO style cans but as far as any locking device never gave it much thought. I just use ratchet straps but I guess I could make some kinda strap to lock.

    I am kinda thinking a cheap coated bike lock for when I am on the road only will have them on when I go out west on my trip. So if I get out in the boonies I have reserve fuel in the bad lands and Utah Nevada.

    That's what I have. Just to make it more difficult to take. If someone really wanted the gas, a hole punch would do the job.

    That is a great setup. Is the third can (on the tire) for water?
