    The hole and the slot next to it looks like the previous owner may have been using a padlock to lock the handle from spinning. I can't tell how big the hole and slot are without anything for reference. Even a cheap padlock is better then nothing. The goal is to make it harder for them to steal your spare then the next guys. Crooks are opportunistic, they go for whatever is quick, easy and will draw the least amount of attention.
