Wheel clamp.

Hi,

Looking for a boat trailer wheel clamp, it has to fit over tyres size 20.5 8 10, they are the wide tyres for a boggy beach launch.
Found two Iím interested in.
SAS HD4
Bulldog TC300.
Cheers

Mark

Hi Matt,

Didnít realise it was so complicated buying a wheel clamp, do you have one of the two I listed and do you recommend it?

"Nemesis Full Stop" clamp is excellent but a bit pricey.
I picked up a secondhand one at a sensible price and I'm well chuffed with it.

Hi,

Does the Nemesis fit on that size of wheel and tyre? They all appear to be generally size dependant. If youíve got a Nemesis on that size of wheel and tyre, which model have you got.
Cheers

Mark

There is 20% off on bulldog at the moment Black Friday sale offer

I have tc300 for my wide wheels same size, didn't know the SAS one fitted them. It fits wheel bit faffy to fit but no worse than most.

http://www.security-products.co.uk/

Code is "BLACK17"

205/65-10 is the new metric size for these I think so this should also fit http://www.security-products.co.uk/centaurca500.html
TC300 is half the price though

Had SAS HD1 on a trailer with smaller wheels and I think the tc300 is a bit easier/quicker to fit....

RIBase
Worth fitting a hitch lock to in my opinion. I also fit a wire rope lock through the wheel clamp.

Hi Spartacus,
I already have a hitch lock, good idea about the chain though.
Still looking for a wheel clamp if anybody has one to move.

If you are insured phone them and they will give you guidance on what ones they will cover. Some are more fussy than others with them so worth checking.

Why not buy a new one? £100 probably what you paid for a years insurance?

It’s looking that way, just seeing if someone had one sat doing nothing.
Not to desperate yet as all sat in my garage under lock and key.
Cheers for replying .

Never used one, the TrailClamp ones are pretty simple, quicker than the SAS clamp to fit, not sure which is more "secure"

Hi all,
Thank you for all your comments, it is appreciated.
As the boat and trailer are secure in my locked garage I will keep an eye open for a clamp if not buy a new one before it leaves the garage.
Thanks again and still looking .
Mark
