    Question Secure the Braai grid!

    Hello there fellow 4x4 lads and ladies

    I have bought myself one of those Braai grids that you clip on the spare wheel on the back of the door.

    My newly found concern is safety regarding the Braai grid getting nicked

    Should I just leave it?(Recently bought and assembled so haven't taken it off the spare wheel and the vehicle is a daily runner so it is exposed to numerous locations) or do you ingenious lads have a solution to lock down the grid?

    Maybe like a lockable ratchet strap or chain or something?

    Any advice is much appreciated

    Do you use it on a daily basis, or is it there for ornamental purposes ?

    Take it off and leave it at home when not needed. That way it is not exposed to the "elements" ( climate and criminal).

    Mine is on the spare, under the wheel cover. Been there for a few years and haven't had a problem. Then again, mine looks all gnarly and old and used up. Not the typical item on the affirmative shopping list.

    It is such a pain in the bum to travel with my roof rack and awning to work every day. Why on earth travel with a barbecue grill every day? Not even Jan Braai, one of our authors, does that.

    I have my full kit on and in the Landy at all times. But then i walk two houses down the road to work and the wife drives the 10km's to work with a picanto. That way, when we are out and about we can braai with an awning and full kitchen etc where we need to...
