I use a Bulldog Trailclamp, covers the wheel nuts and is one acceptable to the insurance company. Check this out with the insurers.

We use a bulldog seams good but as some one as already said if they want it they will get it, last year my friend showed me a photo where a thief cut the transom off complete with the out board motor using a disc cutter. you can only do your best.

I am with Codprawn on this (makes a change eh!) but you need to use a wheelclamp as well.

Myself and Brian Taylor needed to dislodge the SAS clamp on his boat. Al it took was one clapped out Disco and driver and about 20 seconds to break through it!

So go for a bulldog bigboy that will take at least a minute! ( but the insurance companies criteria will be met)



cheers

Just remember with a chain to pull it tight - wrap it around the lamp post a few times if needed otherwise it will snap if they try to drive off!!!

Nice and tight the mobike chains have a breaking strength of about 30 tons - bit more than even a Landie can manage but if they can get some kinetic energy into the equation first thing may go ping!!!

By the way make sure the Lamp Post is pretty solid!!!

We used to use a eurochamp or euroclamp it didnt cover the nuts, ofcourse I was told this was more than sufficient by some committee members in the club until I brought ot their attention the fact that the spare was only held on by nuts and any thief could simply swap it it over, we changed the wheel lock and now lock the spare in place too.

Funnily we also called our insurers, the conversation went something like this.." We could make the boat more secure by parking it on blocks and removing the wheels!" ..."Er no your policy states a wheel lock must be fitted, if it has no wheels you cant therefore we cant insure you" I'm sure they're all nice people if you meet them in the pub!!

Thats why you take one wheel off and clamp the other right?

Thats ok if again your spare is locked/other wheel has nuts covered. We also have a hitch lock built in to the hitch but havent tested it for "thievability"

After all is said and done if the genuinely want a "classic" delta in less than concourse condition then I'm sure we will know about it, best reliance is to fullfil insurance criteria and know that the claim will be met.
