Trail Cam Security Housing Build
I recently added an additional trail camera to my stable of trail cams that I have set up along the eastern slope of the Rockies.
I needed a security box to place the trail cam in once the box is fastened and cabled to the tree of choice, and although I may have purchased one upon purchasing the trail cam, they did not have any in stock, and not wanting to wait a week or more to order one up, I went in to my shop and built one.
That's what you see here in this photo shot at the welding bench in my shop.
I fabricated the housing from 16 gage sheet metal cut and formed with my 3 in 1 sheet metal machine and used my tig welder to assemble it.
In this photo I just tigging the hinges to the box and lid, and all that remains is to tig the brackets in place to allow for a padlock to lock the access door before applying a painted finish to the box.
Of course it goes without saying that the insert photo of the security housing with the trail cam in place is how it looks now that its finished and the camo applied.
Not seen in the photo are the openings at either side top and bottom for a 6' braided steel locking cable to be inserted for additional security once the housing has been installed and adjusted for the chosen area the trail cam will cover.
I am anxious to get this particular trail cam into the field, as it is capable of shooting full HD 1080p video covertly day or night.
