    That's just what I've been looking for - before I thought of using my old fashioned one.
    Why did you fit it there and not nearer the right hand edge?

    To allow free movement of the seat when turned around (on site) but not allow enough movement for the seat to be in a position to drive off. It is an Oxford Patriot Long Shank - needs a 14mm hole. I use a couple of washers to stop any direct tool access to the shank. I think an angle grinder would just make it spin around.

    Thought I’d make use of a disc lock I had lying around and follow what others have done and ‘lock’ the drivers seat facing the habitation area rendering it v v difficult to drive if not impossible. I removed the drivers seat from the base and drilled a 14mm hole and simply fit the disc lock. As you can see from the pictures it locks the base preventing it been turned round as the bottom of the lock catches the metal base (y)

    Thanks, I used it on my bike, it’s not cheap and the design is such that it help prevent cutting as it just spins around

    When I leave our van in a greek boatyard for a couple of months this summer I thought that I might remove something essential , steering wheel, clutch or brake pedal , engine ecu etc etc and take it away with me ?
    It’ll be quite safe anyway as there are millions and millions of euros worth of boats in there and security patrols etc but just to be on the safe side.........
