Good but key gets stuck sometimes
on July 5, 2014
I have been using this for over a year on my trucks, which have manual transmission. 1st I used it on a 2005 Ford F-150, now I used it on a 2003 Dodge Ram. The concept is simple, lock your wheel then hook it to the clutch or brake pedal.
If someone wants to cut the steering wheel they can, but for the price this will deter the casual, unprepared opportunistic thief.
Now, for the bad, they key sticks. I have used WD-40 and the it still sticks. The lock seems to be very sensitive to tension in the rod, for example if the rod is very tight on brake & steering wheel (which is should be in theory) the lock won't turn. You have to wiggle it incessantly to get it to loosen the lock up. This is VERY annoying when you are in a hurry. I am concerned I may lock myself from using my own vehicle. This has happened repeatedly, so I can duplicate the issue. So keep that in mind.
