Personally I use a really hefty motobike locking chain and padlock wrapped around the steering wheel and the pedals - another around the bumper/bull bar and a lamp post - will use the same for my Rib/trailer when it arrives.

Not only are they a bitch to remove without an oxy but they tend to send out a message that the owner is a bit strange!!!!

The chains also double up as a really useful aid if you catch the little shits!!!

Remember if you carry a weapon you WILL get charged if you use it - however if you use something you happen to have handy as self defence that you normally carry............

Land Rover wheel braces are particularly handy!!!!

Flippin' 'eck. No wonder you are always late for work.

Now, a professional would know that Rangy locks are so good you can open them with a fresh British Rail sandwich.

Mine now has auto locks. You slam the door and the button drops down.
Now where are my car keys?

Funnily enough my Landie does that as well - so does the Vectra but that needs fancy electronics!!!

I was always liked the security on the car in "For your eyes only".

best security ever fitted to a car I know of was a chap a (good) few years ago who simply put a personal reg. plate on his wife's car.. HEF1 .. those of you from the Brum area might know who that was... anyway, some (probably illiterate fool) nicks the car...........oooooh dear... still.... they got the car back... pity about the thief.....
