After using my small axe twice this year and both times lamenting how much work it was, I’ve bought a long-handled one to carry with me.
However, there’s no way I’m driving around without it being very tightly secured.
I’d like to find something mechanical (as opposed to, say, a strap), and while I was browsing my local hardware store in vain I kept comparing each option to the latch on my fire extinguisher. That seems like a design I’d feel confident in. Easy to open, easy to close, but robust in the case of an accident.
Any suggestions, for an online retailer, a specific type of clasping mechanism, or even a useful search term to help me in my quest?
