They are motion detectors for bicycles. Quite small, quite loud. Wouldn't stop a thief but would warn you or anyone around. What think?

I guess your referring to something like this?

might stop opportunistic thieves, but probably wont stop the dedicated ones.
poses the question, what do you do to a thief you catch in the middle of the night trying to take your canoe? Someone who would leave you stranded with no second thought, might not be the best person to confront if your not prepared for it.

do you just say "better luck next time" and send them on their way?

most people are not prepared for something like this.

Might work as a first line of defence for bear protection? Attach it to your packs. Might scare the bear away, or at least warn you of their presence. On the other hand it might also be triggered by squirrels etc.

Nobody calls the cops when a car alarm goes off. They just curse the owner!!
