    Your views please on whether these are worth it for more than just peace of mind.

    Thanks in advance.

    They are things that fit over the handles at the bottom of top-hinged windows. supposedly makes it more difficult to introduce the knock-out gas tube or similar.

    I won't have a problem with the gas as our MH is not UK reg - but with so many of you at risk I imagine most of you have had to introduce this sort of measure to meet insurance requirements.

    I've always thought they were pretty pointless

    OK so it might make it marginally more difficult to break the window catches but it's still a plastic window. If someone tries to break in using the normal method all they need to do is use slightly more force and instead of the catch breaking the window will break where the catch is attached.

    Like all security devices they are just a deterrent to make access more difficult or slower so hopefully in conjunction with other devices they are enough to put a thief off & perhaps choose someone else's!

    I have Lock em Out and Fiamma window alarms fitted.
    Nothing more than a little deterrent ......but both being quite visual, and one quite noisy,
    it may stop the casual thief, who seeing these may move onto ANO target.

    I find 3 staffies in the van plus warning stickers about having dogs is more of a deterrent

    I have used "Lock M Out" for around 12 months, and purchased them as a deterrent in conjunction with the Cat 1 alarm and other security measures. I think for the time it takes me to fit and remove them it's something else to either slow down an entry and or deter it.

    Sorry for the funny rating but what are you saying? Non UK registered Moho's are less likely to be fictitiously gassed?
    As regards gas, attacks, non UK and UK registered Moho's and motor cycles are equally at risk of silly stories. Even the insurance companies know the humour in that. If you do smell noxious gas in the night, change your partner.

    You need to start reading the Daily Mail mate, especially in your line of work.

    People have lost iPads, £2000 in cash and other stuff from this sort of thing.

    Yes, Rolex watches, designer jewellery, designer clothes and trainers worth 1000's. Just the type of stuff that motorhomers take with them for a couple of weeks away.
    Be careful, people will start hilarious threads again.

    Buy a 25 year old motorhome, I leave the doors unlocked, the tealeaves may get in and leave me something. ( I hope it's not a brown parcel though)
