ahhh.. the only think I did was take two lag bolts with washers and screwed them into a tree which secured the box. It was very simple and I have a lock on the front of the case.

Great box!!

I tried lag bolts last year with Moultrie boxes. I'd rather use the strap with a cable around the tree. Easier and quicker setup (and takedown) with no tools, plus allows for adjustment.

I do like to add angle adjusters to my boxes though.

I've been using a simple bar from lowes threaded through the plastic loops on the back of my I60 with holes drilled in the end for a python cable. It worked fine for quite a while, but I'm sure it put some stress on the plastic loops. Last weekend, a small animal decided to use my camera as a stepping stone while climbing the tree it was hooked to. The plastic loops finally gave up to ghost.

So, I ordered one of these. I'm looking forward to receiving it.

Thanks,

Jack

it would be nice if you could just put a cable through the box only(not the camara and the box) and use a lock in front ,that way when checking the camara the python and box stay in position while swapping memory cards

I'm pretty sure that's doable. The hole at the bottom of the faceplate looks big enough for the shackle of a padlock.
I think you could hang one up with the strap and bungee cords and a cable lock, and then padlock the faceplate. "Belt and suspenders." :lol:

Here's my modification to the box. This is for a Trophy Cam, but I did the same thing to one for a SpyPoint. It is an angle adjuster. Just a piece of aluminum bolted on, tapped for 1/4" bolt. Move the bolt in and out to adjust the angle. I used the existing holes in the box. You could also put it on the bottom if you need to angle it up. This is a piece of 1/2" aluminum I had left over from making rod holder bases, but I would rather have 1/4" There is plenty of room in the box behind the camera for the bolts and the adjustment bolt. I think it's about one inch. I did this one by hand, so it's kind of crooked. If I had a good drill press I could do it better. I just like not having to find a stick with the right diameter to use.

I also added a couple pieces of foam tape to it that you can see in the picture below. The camera is just a little loose in it, so I added those too keep it kind of tight. I don't think it would make any noise without them, but I want to make sure, just in case.

Got mine for my I60 setup yesterday. One small suggestion: Add a hole big enough for the larger python cable that does not go through the cover. I prefer to secure the box to the tree with a python and use another lock for the cover. That enforces the camera pointing even when I remove it, swap cards, and return it since the box stays put on the tree.

Thanks,

Jack
