Security Box for Simmons Pro Hunter 7MP Low Glow

I bought a Simmons Pro Hunter 7MP Low Glow and would like to get a security box but can't seem to find one specifically designed for it. Any suggestions other than make my own? I could go without but my main concern is bear bothering with it. Thanks in advance.

I did a google search and wasn't able to find what you were looking for. If you plan to build a security box, have a look how the box is designed for the Moultrie M80 or M100. This is a well designed box, very easy to open to remove the camera. The front folds upward, then lifts out. Just leave room for the thickness of a large flat washer and the head of a lag bolt if lag bolting to a tree or fence post. The flat washer helps to re enforce the metal of the box. Be sure to put a couple of drain holes in the bottom in case water gets in. I have two of these boxes for my Moultrie M100 cameras and am very happy with them.
I have security boxes for the 2009 Bushnell Trophy Cameras. These have a lid that covers the top of the box. The lid can easily be pried off if one was to borrow someones camera. To close, one has to put a spacer between the tree or post and the back of the box to have clearance to close the lid. The center hole on the back near the bottom is too low making it hard to insert a lag bolt properly.
