I was also concerned about theft after installing my Firestik. I ended up heating shrink tube over the bottom of the antenna. Certainly not full-proof, but maybe enough of a deterrent.

I would steer away from thread lock myself. Good job on the heat shrink. a thief may end up twisting your mount all to hell trying to unscrew a lock-tighted antenna

That is one good point. And i noticed that when tight it is almost impossible to remove by hand, so the thief would have to have two right sized tools. I'll look to the heat shrink option.

A good quality "quick dis-connect"; and run the antenna only when you're in the car?

Don't forget to re-tune the antenna after you add the add'l length provided by the quick disco.
