This is what it takes to stop South African criminals from stealing batteries

Having a closer look the security of that design rests on the lid going snug inside the sides so you can't get a hold on it. That I bolt used seems to be removable.

Did anyone tell these designers that you can buy an I bolt at any nut and bolt shop? Crims rock up with the correct sized I bolt, screw it in. Put gwala inside the I bolt and lift it over. Bob's your uncle :D

Finding the right lifting lug isn't as easy as you might think. The freaking things come in various sizes and you can never find one when needed. They should have made it even more interesting and installed non standard thread lugs.
 
Never underestimate the determination of a South African engineer. This might just work!

I would love to agree with you as we have brilliant engineers. But this one who built this only had one goal. Prevent someone from just getting there with their bare hands and stealing batteries. Sure it will keep them out for a week or 2. Then they will come prepared. This is not a solution it's like sticking a band aid on a gunshot wound :D

Have you seen the technical drawings, engineering plans, and test results? I'm not sure you can make such sweeping statements about a product you are not familiar with.

I'm quite certain part of the design and engineering spec was to make the protection mechanisms intentionally obscure, and I'm also quite certain they were rather selective about the published pics...

You can see more then enough from the pictures. Unless you're blind :confused:

I concur. The negative feedback here is without all the technical specs of the product. Wait until it is put in the real world and see how it stops the thieves before making such sweeping statements. From what I can see, they're not getting inside that box. I am sure the designers and engineers have also thought of more than just a fly-by-night rocking up with his bear hands. ;)
 
I want to see a video of it taking some abuse.

Looks can be deceiving.
 
They should also enhance the security with some alarms and motion detection. The advantage of the Cube is that it will take time to break through - by that time the security should be on the scene.

Yea, can't remember which ISP here in cpt has the camera and speaker on their highsight.

What's with the attitude? Is it not possible to have a civil discussion without it feeling like approaching a Jewish border with a broken brake pedal?
 
I highly doubt they poured a concrete box, sat back and said "by God, Pinkie! We've done it. A box. Of concrete. Call a press statement... "

No I was curious what the structural drawings of the walls and the lid will help when you can clearly see the lit works on weight and has no locking mechanism :confused:

Structural drawings showing it has rebar and other composites in it does nothing with regards to the lid of the cube. The fact that it's hinged in such a way that the box fits in snug and that you need a block and tackle to open and close it indicates weight as a lock.

Well you've cracked it then. Nothing gets by you.

Scale of 1 to 10, how confident are you that this is simply a weight locking mechanism and you'd James Bond your way in and out of there without a hassle?
