i just use the bungee cords and try to set it up in a secluded area. even if you put a cable and lock on it, you're only keeping an honest man honest.

Well I just put my D-40 back up after I broke one of the mounting holes off the outer box . What I did was drill through the top of the outer case behind the locking pins , I put 2 sheet rock screws into a wood block ,and drilled holes for some much stronger bungee cords ( Truck type ) . You could also mount the camera with screws through the wood into the tree . Also put a lock through the lock bracket between the latches .

i do like that idea but where i hunt on public land, it's against the law to screw or drill anything into any tree.
