    A quick reminder, make sure it will fit your wheels, get the size right and enquire as to whether it will fit a commercial wheel (different offset), one insurance rated one I recently bought only JUST fits if i remove the wheeltrim, another non insurance one i bought for the landrover, is about as much use as a hairclip.....I could remove it with my hands, expect to pay around a £100 for a "sold secure" or similar item.

    Wheel clamp

    Rob1

    I use a sold secure steering wheel cover which i dont have to get cold and wet to put on. Pedal clamps are another option.

    Peters idea is a good one, i think Rhinointallations would do it for you.

    It is easy enough to do, locate the feed wire to the solenoid, cut it and run a pair of wires to a switch under the dash board or under the drivers seat and wire in a switch.

    Join the pair of wires to the ends of the feed wire and thats it, with the switch off the fuel solenoid cannot energise and lift the valve.

    They can hot wire the ignition all day long and go nowhere!

    The Nemesis for me. Only drawback is the weight and storage so only use it at home on the drive.
    I read a good tip along time ago and that was to fit it to the back wheel, it stops a tow truck being used to lift the vehicle.

    Look for something that is Thatcham approved

    That is the lot who do all the testing for the insurance companies

    Something with the Thatcham mark is worth far more than some cheapo bit of kit make of chinese shelac'd cardboard and hair lacquer ! :thumb:

    ( I am not saying any of the above options are duff, merely that a Thatcham one has been fully tested, in the UK, by a group whose soul purpose in life is to kill security devices ! )
