Afraid Of Your Western Plow Being Stolen? Now There’s A Solution in Security Guard
Offered exclusively on all Western snowplows, the SECURITY GUARD anti-theft system is an electronically controlled snowplow anti-theft system. It is not uncommon to hear about snowplows being stolen during the winter. With the improvements of attach/detach systems, it is quicker and easier than ever to pop a snowplow on and off a truck. This makes it easy for thieves to transfer a blade from one truck to another in minutes — making drive-up thefts more and more common.
The new SECURITY GUARD anti-theft system was developed to give a snowplow owner a way to safely and securely “lock” their snowplow while it is detached from the truck — creating a deterrent from theft and/or non-permitted use. Unlike physical locks that can be easily cut or removed, the SECURITY GUARD system, when activated, uses the snowplow’s electrical system (synchronizing the control and the plow module) to lock-down the electrical functionality to the snowplow, thus preventing unwanted users from activating the snowplow.
The new HTS controls with the SECURITY GUARD system have faceplates that include designations of “1”, “2”, “3” and “4” for the corner buttons (see below). Moving forward, the multiplex (MUX) controls used for our adjustable wing snowplows (MVP PLUS™ and WIDE-OUT™) will continue to have text descriptions for these buttons in addition to numeric designations (see below).
