Steering Wheel Locks Do Help to Deter Car Thieves.

Steering Wheel Locks

These security products are mainly a visual deterrent, but can help to secure your vehicle against theft without installing an elaborate alarm system.

They attach to your steering wheel and lock down, to prevent the steering wheel turning and making it impossible for the car to be driven. They are made of hardened steel making them extremely difficult to cut off.Some locks incorporate extra hooks to prevent cutting off.

The preferred method of fitting is with the extension arm between the driver’s door and the windscreen. This method obstructs the thief from turning the steering wheel.

Another variation on vehicle steering wheel security, is a lock that attaches to the steering wheel and the brake pedal, rendering both immobile.

There are types that protect the driver’s airbag as well, by means of an extension to the bar, or a disc-style, which works in conjunction with a standard car steering wheel lock. Airbags are valuable and have become a prime target for theft.

There is a wide choice of reasonably priced steering wheel locks available, e.g.
