LockTech and DiskLok
Posted 10 September 2003 - 01:55 PM
It seems that the new LockTech security system and DiskLok is gaining
LockTech is a brake lock and need to be installed permanently in a car to
prevent brake pressing and thus preventing the gear to be moved from P to
D in auto car.... Eg. the new Honda City.
DiskLok in some sort of steering lock but it has the covers (if not
mistaken, aluminium) that completely wrapped around the steering to
prevent thieves from cutting the steering wheel.
Anyone have tried this locks B4?? Is it good? How much?
Thanks in advance guys...

car from theft by tow truck. What ever teh angle you park the car, when
alarm is engaged it remembers the degree of tilt as reference, so when a
tow truck comes to tow the car, the degree changes and the alarm goes
off. This is better then teh old mercury tilt sensor. Advise to add the
digital tilt sensor cost about $450. Cheetah does it and can combine to
the Cobra alarm, think others also manufacture this.
Those smart chip card immobilizer alarms add on is good if you are
driving and robbed off your car , once you are out of the car, the thief
drives off the car but will be imobilized after a few meters..

highly rated in UK. I bought this car magazine about a month back and they
were had an article about all the most porpular stering locks...one of
them was the standard autolock, and disklock and etc.
for the standar autolock that most of us use..it only took them about 1
minutes 45 seconds if i am not mistaken for them to remove it...but for
the disklock...they tried to remove it for up to 45 minutes but still
could not...with all sorts of tools and force...and gave up at the end.
So it sounds to be quite good...but any idea...where do they sell this
disklock here and how much it is?? cause have not seen it around...may be
i had no time to go loking for it too this days :)

stolen. For Rm499 you will only get an average alarm set wherelse with
that same money you can get the best Mechanical lock that will work even
better than that alarm set.
But of course...with the alarm...the soft chirp makes you feel your cars
secure but to arm that disklok thats more effort (especially for ladies)

magazine..they did all sorts of test on it..and they gave up after 45
minutes...they say it was quite impossible to remove it...so i guess its
worth the amount.
But then again, that was what some reviews said about stoplock when it was
first introduced...even the UK police recommended stop lock last
time..after being tested by them....but now we all know how easy is it to
remove the stop lock..by cutting the stering wheel.....
so i guess at the end of the day..its all up to the consumer how much they
are willing to spend on securing their car.
As i have said before to some forumers....my opinion on car security is
that...a safe amount or suggested amount to spend on the security of your
car would be about 5% of your car value....thats my suggestion..and i been
working around that amount as well when i did up my car security system.
