Security Devices

I need to park my V6 in a less than salubrious area occaisonally and want to fit a better deterrent than the supplied immobiliser.

Has anyone fitted either a "Stud It" which fits round the gear knob base or the "Barrier Deadlock" which locks the gearchange connector rod on the side of the tunnel?

As I dont want to have to carry a wheel clamp or steering wheel lock due to the hassle of fitting and removing them!

Hi Donkin

Sorry can't help about the devices you're thinking about. But I just wanted to say not to dismiss steering locks too quickly.

I use a disklock (sp?) that covers the whole wheel and it's not as much a pain as I thought it would be. You get used to it fairly quickly and once you've got the knack it's really easy to put on and off without having to get out or open the door.

It also stores really easily in the depression in the passenger footwell when driving and doesn't move around at all. Although you do have to put it in the boot if you have a passenger which can be a pain!

Just my 2p worth!
