What is this used for? Also, how do I put a lock on a case like this one?
That handle is used for lifting the can vertically in or out of something.
If you want an ammo can lock, see pic. There are other kinds of ammo can locks but this one doesn't need a hole drilled in the can itself.
Here is one that will help keep the can waterproof. You can also figure out how to make this for less than the $12 the guy on eBay wants.
They make ammo can locking fixtures for vehicles.
Awesome company, their band saw table is god tier
That is used to tie strong to and hang from trees. WHen camping a soldeir would hang the ammo can high in a tree, above enemy reach, to keep the enemies from capturing ammo in an ambush.
Forgive me for being a dumb fudd but what's the point of locking up an ammo can? Anyone who is gonna steal your ammo would have an easier time just taking the whole can, because that's the whole point of the can, to make it easier to carry ammo.
Just welded this shit onto it and bought a lock. was either too lazy to look online for legit things that go in it.
its normally thought of as a handle for pulling off of a stack but the secondary purpose is a safety to prevent the latch from popping and dropping the contents if it opens upside down in a fall.
you can go the master lock rout like others have posted. but if you dont want to mutilate your box and find a way to reseal it you can do like i did with a gun cable lock. wrap it around the bar and through the handle hole as many times as you can
Who are you trying to keep out of there? Just kids? Cause I'm pretty sure anyone else can get through that with a pair of dikes.
I have a question, are the new ammo cans as good as used GI ones?
>oh my god this board really is 100% nogunz.
Not every firearm owner uses metal ammocans. For instance, all my shit is plastic.
So eat a bag of dicks. Individually, as if they were eclairs.
Here i was thinking it was the rubber gasket seal on the lid.
