Wheel Clamps UK… Can Prevent Vehicle Theft and Deter Illegal Parking.

Wheel Clamps UK

Wheel clamps can prevent vehicle theft and deter illegal parking. They are suitable for securing / immobilising cars, vans, caravans, motor-homes, trailers, motorcycles and scooters. They can also be used to protect cars displayed on garage forecourts.

When fitted and locked over the tyre, the clamping device prevents the car from being driven away.

Before you buy wheel clamps, make sure you select the correct size for your vehicle, as a poor fit may reduce its effectiveness.

There is a wide choice of reasonably priced wheel clamps available, from light to heavy-duty versions, in a variety of sizes to fit most vehicles.

Some have integral locks for ease of use, while others require shackles and padlocks.
