I keep a hammer in each door and one in my bunk.

The air horn will scare them away and bring attention, while the seat belts will just make him struggle.

In the even if a fire, a hammer to the windshield and a swift kick from my Popeye the sailor man legs will work just fine.

Been out here 7 years. Not worried about a damn thing.

Is just a the tiny chain on a front door better than a deadbolt?

From a trucker 'wannabe' as well, I'd think a "MONTY DOG" would serve a better purpose.

Again, DISCLAIMER.. just imho!

My personal opinion is that this just makes getting out in an emergency more difficult. With all of the potential hazards within, on, and around trucks, I have more concern for being able to get out in an emergency than someone trying to get in. In truth, I generally don't worry about anything and have never felt unsafe in my truck.
