Abstract: A securing device (1) for carts having a chain (82) with a first end secured to a screw (7) mounted on a cart, a first key secured to a second end of the chain (82), a coin receptor for releasing and retaining an introduced coin (50, 51), and additional apparatus for coupling and uncoupling the cart to and from another parked cart. When a second key (8') secured to the other parked cart is introduced into the securing device (1) to couple and securely hold the cart to the other parked cart, a coin (50, 51) from the coin receptor of the cart is released and the cart can be uncoupled from the other parked cart by introducing a next coin (50, 51) into the coin receptor thereby releasing the second key (8') while the next coin (50, 51) is retained in the coin receptor.
