Bushnell Scouting Camera Security Boxes
the security box is a pain, the top panel is cheaply made, the box below is givving me fits with the slightly protruding screws keeping me from easily sliding the camera in and out. I have to fight to get the camera in an out past a drywall screw that i didnt get all the way flush as the holes were made to low, not having a 6 inch long bit either. I have another sec urity box from dffernt MFGR that the entire fron panel lifts up and out and it is better made and much easyier to use.and padlocks at the bottom, the inside is to small or screw holes not recessed and interfeer with camera install.

The box is well made and pretty secure. Best feature is how well the cam fits in the box. The straps that the cam comes with are garbage, especially if you have little mesquites like we do in TX. I quickcreted up a 4x4 and lag bolted this guy on in no time. Perfect for walking up and getting the SD card out of the cam every morning I hunt and checking the pics on my phone. It just slips in and out. If you are worried about security, grab another lock while you are at it, the one that comes with it is pretty puny. Dont get the camera without this box.

When on a tree, can't simply get to camera to switch out the card. Original design needs the cable lock put through the camera as well, so have to remove whole set up off of tree to do anything. Ended up drilling holes near top, but the extended lock/strap bracket on the camera keeps it from sliding out, so next step is welding a pair of brackets on to actually try to make this thing usable.
Also had to drill out the lock hole on the top for a real lock.
Great if you want to put your camera up and not check on it ever.

Gets the Job Done
The box does what it says it does. However, I think the design on the lid needs improvement. When mounted flush agiainst the tree it is hard to get the top opened and closed unless you knock all the bark off the tree behind it. I actually put spacers behind the box on mine to prevent this problem. Also, it takes a little jiggling and moving around to get the camera to set properly into the cut-out holes in the bottom of the box.
Also, It doesn't seem to be a durable as the cudde box that I have for my cuddeback camera
