There is some current discussion on the use and location of a surge guard.  For those who might use a portable one, I'm posting our method of securing our portable surge guard:

We secure our portable surge guard to the electric post at an RV park with a length of double loop chain and two padlocks.  One padlock attaches snugly to the surge guard power cord at one end of the chain.  The chain is then wrapped around the electric post and the second padlock connects that end of the chain snugly to the first padlock.  The electric post usually has a large box at the top of the post that blocks lifting the chain arrangement off of the post.

This will not stop someone with a bolt cutter from taking the surge guard, but should protect it in most cases.

My husband uses a bicycle lock with a cable.  The surge protector was designed with a metal plate attached with dual holes to utilize a lock.
