Many ski thefts occur because you inadvertently make it easy for the thief. You can secure your equipment by purchasing a good lock that effectively protects your skis. Some people separate the skis on the rack as a preventive measure. But thieves often grab quickly without noticing that the skis do not match until much later. Never leave your skis unattended.
