So how common is antenna theft?
I just put an s2k antenna on. The fact that it took less than 5 seconds to put on was convinient, but I guess it also makes it convenient to lift. Have you guys had your fancy antennas stolen?

i havnt heard of it happening here--but then again new orleans isn't a really big 'tuner' market so most people wouldn't even know the difference about my s2k antenna.

that said, use some loc-tight if your worried about it..it can still come off, but they'll have to work a bit harder at it--which may prevent it thumbsup

my s2k antenna is like "stuck"(don't know why), but if you tried to take it; you would only get the rubber(or w/e)! spineyes

I just do spot checks when I get in my car, make sure what needs to be there is there.

Also, I wouldn't want to put locktight or any type of bonding material on it because then the azz who would want to swipe it might end up scratching the car.

not so much keying the car but end up scratching antenna area because they have to twist harder, or whatever.

I think this is a repost but, I just take it off and put it in my car if I'm leaving my car in a "BAD" area. Like said it takes 5sec to take it off and on. wave

thats not very nice.

I will paint lil tiggers all over since he is my buddy. He drives around with me in my car.

I don't think anyone would want a tigger S2 antenna.

Thanks for the suggestions. I like the logic of let them take it if they insist and not have to damage the car. They're cheap enough to replace.
