"Disk/disc? lock/lok? steering lock . . ."

...
Disklok, the name sums it up, you know what to expect. The device is large, painted hi-viz yellow, and more of a deterrent because it can be seen from a long way off. It cannot easily be removed wihout the key. It is a sign of the times that this firm spells DISK with a K, it is also a sign of the times that these items are a must, as so many alarms are ignored, and other steering wheel locks are simply removed by bending the wheel.

I did say that they come in Hi-viz yellow, this is true, but you can now get them in titanium silver & black as well as chrome & black if you prefer. They are approved by Thatcham (category 3) and are marketed as "THE STRONGEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE FULL COVER STEERING WHEEL LOCK IN THE WORLD".


I suppose one thing worthy of note, is the fact that it does take up a lot of space when not in use, this may be a problem, and if it ends up in the boot, then it won't actually get used, so not a lot of good then. They do come with a storage case. They are available in three sizes, and not only stop the car being stolen, they also protect the airbag from theft, something which is catching on. The situation being that while radios, CD players, and the modern MP3 players all come pin number protected, your airbags are easier to steal and have no such security.

The smallest ones (and therefore lightest) weigh 3.8 Kilos, and the inside is covered with a velvet type material to protect your wheel. You get three keys to start with, although you can get more if required. The device is covered by a three year guatantee.

Auto Express made this an award winner in the years 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004, and Revs Car magazine declared this the Best Buy in 2001 & 2002. What Car? magazine did the same for the years 2000, 2003 & 2005. Construction is all steel. The recommended retail price of the small ones, is a massive £69.99.but we know we can get them much cheaper than that. Even Argos have them for less than £55.
