    So the fly rail Gaff would disappear just minutes after I stocked it. I think I found the solution.

    :clap:

    You're not the first, and won't be the last. I, too, have been known to chain and padlock rolls of gaff tape to various permanent locations.

    We'll leave the discussion of why one needs that much gaff tape on the lockrail for another time.

    Let's just say all volunteers and everyone has their own "system". For now proper spiking is something very low on my list to try and teach them. This hopefully moves up beyond duck tape for good. ‍

    We tried that in high school but never could get the ducks through the rope locks. Probably why they put me in audio...

    It keeps honest people honest. I’ve posted this picture to some FB groups and the response was “I’d leave an empty core out of spite”.

    This was my first thought upon reading the thread title as well...

    Does he need a stint in obedience school, or a shock collar?
