How do you successfully secure scaffold towers overnight?

Or do you dismantle and pack away at the end of every day?

they usually creak noisily when someone climbs up them. Open the adjacent window enough to hear? Maybe untie any any-toppling measures? Adjust the feet so it wobbles?

Grease all of it so it's slippery.
In the morning wash it with copious amount of industrial degreaser.
By the time you're done it will be time to grease again.
It's good exercise...

I leave mine up. More effort and noise for thieves that way, than if you dismantle it for them.

Either way, just make the site secure. Heras fencing is cheap as chips.

You could possibly scrounge (or buy) cycle locks from friends, and lock sections together?
Making a board that hooks over the internal ladder, and locks at the base will control (maybe not prevent) people climbing it

To steal it, you need to diassasemble it top down
Certainly- take the outriggers off.
