After a wave of car break ins near by over the winter I decided to use the January Sales and purchase a car steering wheel lock and picked up this Wheel Bar from a local Halfords store for £8.99. There are a vast range of items in the steering wheel lock market too choose from and a vast range of prices to be paid but in all for under a tenner and considering the protection provided here, this is not a device to be sniffed at.
The whole product requires no assembly just the adjustment on the wheel and locking into place. It is heavy and take sup a bit of space in the car but in most will slide under the seat. Its so solid and well made though that the weight makes you have confidence it will deter thieves and ensure your car is safe.
When it is locked in place it feels firm and tight and would take some effort to remove. It holds steadily in places, doesn't slide and its very visible from outside the car so thieves are aware of it being in place. It looks solid and will put most thieves off but most importantly it is such a well constructed, unbreachable piece of kit that this will keep your car safe!
Affordable, tight, solid and easy to use I am confident, as I am sure you will be if purchased, that this will provide good protection to your car.
Bought one of these a couple of years ago when we bought a new car, because it looked a super strong deterrent, and on the whole have been very pleased with it. It is easy to operate and is a heavy piece of equipment, which I think would deter most car thieves. It locks easily but securely and its overall appearance would make a thief decide to try another car! The price was something like £18 but I had this one in a sale; I would imagine now that they cost probably about another tenner. All the same, it has given peace of mind and I have happily parked the car using this lock, in very dubious areas, and returned each time to find the car intact.
The only thing I can really say against this device is that it is not resistant to sunlight and therefore has faded somewhat - it is therefore not quite so visible. All the same, I suppose I could always paint it with a coat of fluorescent paint!
An altogether good device - go and buy one!
