Disklok site

Measure your wheel and then see which size you need. I would guess Medium like everyone else.

But (for the money) are they any good?
Cats know your every thought.

As good as any I guess.

The old adage is true though. If they want it they can take it. I wouldnt have one as an only security device. But I have it an additon to other things. In the hope that the car thief will look at my car and decide it'll take too much time so go to another car. Harsh maybe but thats security for you.

Its less fun putting it on a LHD car than on my old RHD Escort as the bar at the top goes the "wrong way" So mine always ends up upside down. Which I suppose is good as the bar they might try and pull on is at their waist, which should reduce the leverage they can get.

The only thing I would advise against if you have a very small wheel. i.e. just on the limit of what the Disklok can handle. As Ive heard that given a lot of effort you can peel it over the top of a steering wheel. (the steering wheel wil deform more than the lok itself for obvious reasons. If the wheels a real ship jobby then its ok, but otherwise the alternative is to modify the back by welding extra metal to help make the back open diameter smaller.

Like thus (this isnt mine, I have the original Yellow one)

Did you notify your insurers about owning one? Did it reduce your premium at all?

No, I haven bothered to tell them. Though it is Cat 3 rated. I would imagine its not going to make any real diference tbh.

I bought it for extra peace of mind predominately.
