    I have had a T-REX remote alarming steering lock on my Cefiro for the last 3 months and I find it to be very good.
    Apart from the occasional false alarm due to people bumping my car, it has been very reliable and no f_cker will be able to steal my car when it is on.
    It works on air pressure inside the car, when the pressure changes due to a broken window or door opened you get a remote vibrating and audio alarm up to 1km away from your car.

    I would recommend these locks as a cheap and reliable option for car security.

    Rgds,

    What is so hard... Just get the Autolock brand from Carrefour lor... Lock the pedals one.... the steel is bullet proof and cut proof, no worries about it being cut, and there is patented keys to unlock the pedal lock... Even theif can saw the stereng, can he saw off the pedals?

    Sometimes, all people just wanna use immobilisers or things like that, waste so much money on it when they can just make things the simple way. I jut dunno why people just dun take much time to analyze but think that money means security. Lols.

    they said thief haf master key for all kind of lock...

    best set up would be:
    1. Clifford Aero5 + wireless immobilizer - Not many Clifford models have the option of adding a wireless immobilizer. So if the car is started without proper disarm, it'll disconnect the engine in a short period of time. And the best part is it's untraceable unless you know where I installed the immobilizer.

    2. Microwave and tilt sensor add-on - Microwave is better than shock sensor. Any movement inside the car will arm the alarm. Tilt will arm the alarm if the car is lifted up (by tow truck)

    3. Hood lock - You need to know a certain combination of keys to open the hood. Otherwise you have no access to it (to access the battery)

    4. Backup battery - Alarm is armed all the time.

    5. Full security plates plus custom plate to protect hood - you can't ruler into my car. And you can't access the hood either.

    6. 4mm security tint - Prevents smashes, but does not really prevent people from getting into the car. Best to stop hijackers, just need the sense to drive off asap if smashed.

    7. In built brake lock (Locktech) - It locks the brake pedal and once locked, there's no way to unlock it or access the locking mechanism without the key. Unless they got some way to break the lock itself which is inbuilt into the whole mechanism.

    8. IES GSM alarm - Has a SIM card in the alarm which you have to pay for every month. But can remotely disable the car via phonecall and I can even call into the car to talk to the thief. Can remotely lockdown the car too, thieves will have to smash window to get out. Can easily trace car based on GSM signal, but only within a certain area.


    Other than that the only thing I'm looking to upgrade is a 2-way remote. Otherwise I wouldn't know when my car is being stolen except via the GSM module. And I keep the car as low profile as possible, ie-rarely keep it clean, no expensive radio, etc.

    Trust me, steering locks are useless.
