Old way to foil thieves

Rutherglen Reformer - - MOTORS -

Key­less car theft means steer­ing locks are mak­ing a come­back as a DIY preven­tion.

Fig­ures from the Uk dis­trib­u­tor Saxon Brands re­veal that sales for the first six months of this year are more than the to­tal for the whole of 2014.

Theft of ex­pen­sive mod­els that crim­i­nals can hack into and steal us­ing de­vices bought online have re­sulted in the re­turn of steer­ing locks which were pop­u­lar over 20 years ago. Own­ers view them as a cheap and quick so­lu­tion to de­ter the car thieves.
