Here are my Top 5 Sea Doo Anti Theft Tips for Sea Doo tours by experienced riders or beginners. I don’t hear much chatter about jet ski theft. Maybe PWC thieves can’t swim. But being such a trusting sole, my two Sea Doo GTX S 155‘s are always locked up and so is their Triton trailer

Sea Doo Anti Theft Tip #1. Buy A Sea-Doo…

No doubt, Sea-Doo’s Digitally Encoded Security System (DESS) is the best built-in, anti-theft device. The Sea-Doo “key” is computer coded specially for each unit. Without the proper DESS, the unit won’t start, so why steal it?

Sea Doo Anti Theft Tip #2. Lock to Dock…

Any time I leave my Sea-Doo watercraft at a dock out of sight or overnight, I fasten them to the dock or to each other with a Lock Strap. Although primarily designed as a tie down, this theft deterrent strap is light to carry, hooks up easily and uses a combination lock, thereby avoiding a key that could be dropped overboard.

Sea Doo Anti Theft Tip #3. Lock on Trailer…

Whenever my two Sea-Doo watercraft are aboard my Triton PWC trailer, I secure them to the trailer and each other with the same Lock Strap.

Sea Doo Anti Theft Tip #4. Lock Trailer Coupler…

Instead of using the provided clip or bolt to fasten the coupler lever closed, I use a padlock. It not only prevents the lever from accidentally releasing the coupler from the hitch ball in transit, a thief will find it more difficult to steal the PWC’s while loaded on the trailer. For the same reason, my removable hitch is also locked on to my tow vehicle.

Sea Doo Anti Theft Tip #5. Secure Parking…

If my Sea-Doo’s are sitting idle for a few days, I store them in a gated, restricted access, outdoor rental space. Once parked there, I protect the hitch end with a Steal Shield and one trailer wheel is secured with a wheel lock.

As they say, I don’t have to make my PWC’s theft-proof, just harder to steal than the ones next to me!
