Much thanks. Yep, they can still cut the steering wheel to remove the Stoplock, but it is still a deterrent. By the way, I know a locksmith who can duplicate Stoplock round keys. Not easy to duplicate, but possible. I lost my spare some time ago and I went to several locksmiths to make a duplicate. One tried and failed. Three others looked at me and said, "Aiyah, need special machine, lah. Here where got wan? Used to have but send back to HQ."

Anyway, I managed to find one in KL and he took nearly 2 hours to make the duplicate for me. Even then, the duplicate isn't perfect. It works but it doesn't turn as smoothly as the original.

PART 3:

CRITERION 5:

Get a steering wheel lock that protects the car steering wheel from being cut. Wheel locks such as these:




are nearly useless because the car steering wheel can be cut at only ONE place, and the whole steering wheel locks can be removed regardless of how strong, anti-lockpick, and anti-freeze the locks are.

Get steering wheel locks that at least require SEVERAL cuts on the car wheel to remove them. The following wheel locks are better:




... to be continued.


Its really very impressive.....

isn't built-in gear-lock the trend & practical UNLESS wanted to show this steering lock stuff as deterrent & use as self defence during road bully or against snatch thefts.

Just found out that SOLEX AM999 brake lock cannot be used on certain car, due to the wider brake pedal.

You might be able to fit the lock at an angle. Consequently, it isn't a lock for regular, everyday use - more like for occassions where you leave your car for long periods.

Cannot la, the brake pedal is just to wide for the lock to be fitted in.

Hello,

Some photos are missing on this post.

Also, to make it short, if you had to choose only 1 steering wheel lock, which one would you buy and where can I buy it online ?

Thank you so much for your help and great review.
