quick question...

do steering wheel clubs really work?

Are they easy to bypass?

I've seen the steering wheel being cut so they can remove them...so I don't think they work.

Also realize there are 23 million people in Cali so you will hear about cars getting stolen more often. But yes, I'm a victim too.

I was thinking the same thing, Why would you keep puting something in this car and keep letting them have it..Just hand it to them the next time you install it and save a broken window...LOL

Get a garage and put your car in it, park another car in front of garage.

I have a Viper 3 way pager alarm ... works great ... any ' vibration ' done to the car will sound the alarm ... if they lift the car it goes off ... hit the car with another object it goes off ... the pager also has a picture of the car that shows if they opened a door , trunk , or the hood ... and tells you why the alarm went off ... ( vibration or something being opened ) ... it also wont let you start the car unless YOU unlock it using the pager and PHYSICALLY putting the key in and turning it on ... the FLASHING LED usually keeps people at bay ... just dont put Viper alarm stickers everywhere ... then itll be easier for them to get around the alarm ... good luck ... ooo and kill switches are pretty good so they dont drive the vehicle away ...

Put a master pad lock at the bottom of your steering column, it's too hard to reach with bolt cutters and they won't be able to turn the wheel
