Hi Deekus,

I've been looking at these myself, but unsure if they're the best option for mine.

There's a fair amount of posts about various option if you have a quick search on here though.

Cheers,

Dan

Thanks, Ian!

It's a toss-up between the McGard ones and the Volcano's which also look good.

I had a volcano on a boat it siezed and coroded so badly after just one year it had to be removed with a grinder .the actual lock barrel was not fit for outdoor use let alone marine use . It certainly was very secure
That one looks like an improved version so maybe the makers sorted it out after a thread on here gave it a bad name

The valiant I had used one which covers the turnscrews of the engine mount.

When the key was lost, I thought it would take ages to remove. Without saying how, it was 5 mins no real noise, no damage. (Wont say how for obvious reasons)

Would def use the bolt type, for what it's worth.

We went or the McGuard one simply due to price and neatness.

Our insurers don't specify what brand you must use just that you must take reasonable precautions.
