The tiny house fad is sweeping the nation. Many have watched the experiences of those who have purchased and lived in HGTV’s “Tiny House Hunters” and have invested in their own tiny houses.
This fad is not really surprising. The ability to have a tiny house that you can tow around with you as you visit different areas is one with a lot of benefits, the most important of which is a continual place of comfort to return to on your travels.
With a tiny house, how can you protect something that can be dragged away so easily? There are numerous ways to protect your little home, all of which can be easily implemented for ease of mind.
Since most tiny houses are, in some way, attached to a trailer through which it can be towed, the first thing you can do is buy a hitch lock. These attach to the hitch—the section of the trailer that is attached to the towing vehicle—preventing it from being hooked to another vehicle. It is locked over the hitch with a key and is really useful to prevent the house and trailer from being stolen.
Another item you can purchase, particularly if the house is still attached to the trailer, are wheel locks. These are closely related to the wheel locks that can go over the wheels of your car and fit right over the wheels of the trailer and lock with a key. Just as important, however, is that these are pretty cheap and affordable.
If you are staying in one spot for a longer period of time, think about investing in a security camera system that can both be live and record to a computer. These systems can be quite expensive, but are well worth the price when making sure that your tiny house is secure.
A final electronic—and a bit more expensive—means to protect your tiny house is to install an alarm. Alarms for your tiny house do not have to be from ADT: any electronic security system available in major convenience stores like Wal-Mart will do the job. Most alarm systems come with options to emit a loud noise, call the police, or call you when it is tripped.
These are just a few of the ways that you can protect your tiny house, but there are of course other means to protect your possession without making a purchase. Simply pretend like you are home, buy a fake camera to deter robbers, or park it close to neighbors who can call the police if they see someone around the tiny house!
