Product Description

Auto theft accounts for more than $7 billion in losses in the United States: don't be the next victim. The Club is the original, patented vehicle steering wheel lock and the #1 selling mechanical anti-theft device for cars and trucks. The Club brand is synonymous with automotive security. The Club steering wheel locks are highly visible - this strong visual deterrent alerts a potential thief that your car is protected. The Club is virtually impossible to defeat - and time and effort are a thief's enemies. The new and improved solid steel hooks provide even greater security. Cro-moly steel construction resists sawing, prying, hammering and freon attacks. Patented, self-locking mechanism for quick convenient application. Universal fit - works on cars, vans and SUV's. Guaranteed for one year up to $500 against the owner's comprehensive insurance deductible (not valid in New York State where it is prohibited by insurance law).

If they really want your car, they're going to take it.

I personally have been using "The Club" for years and nothing has happened to my car.

After it broke, I was lucky that I was able to remove the club from my steering wheel.

The Club is not an invincible magic bullet.
Yes, if the thief comes equipped with a saw and is prepared to sit in the car hacking away on the steering wheel, it can be defeated. Either way, that takes time, which is something a car thief hates; and lets not overlook the fact that most car thieves are punk kids who aren't exactly 'well equipped'.

What the club is is a target hardener. It's not going to defeat the hard-core professional car thief, but that guy only steals maybe 5% of cars. The other 95% are stolen by punks and butthead kids, who steal cars as targets of opportunity. This is the group the club is for. A clubbed wheel makes it just *that much* more difficult for them to steal your vehicle, which for butthead kids, is all that's really needed to cause them to move on to the next poor schmuck who's car isn't Clubbed. If you have a car of unusual desirability- where you may face prepared and experienced thieves who come equipped and are willing to take the added risk- then yes, additional anti-theft measures above and beyond just the Club need to be taken.

Look at it like this...
Do you have locks on the front door of your house? Bolt locks, knob locks, etc? Of course you do.
Well, all those can be defeated, too. They can be picked, they can be overcome with brute force. Still, they serve a very defined and relevant purpose. This is in the same philosophy as the Club.

My own anti-theft package is pretty simple.

I lock my doors. Functional security Layer 1.
My radio has a detachable faceplate. Functional security Layer 2.
I Club my steering wheel. Psychological and functional security Layer 3.
I have a bluff light installed on the dash that blinks red, so the car appears alarmed. Psychological security layer 4.

Verified Purchase
My 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander ES (base trim) already came with an active car alarm (together with engine immobilizer), so it wasn't necessary for me to get the Club. But I sometimes park it in a not-so-good neighborhood and putting the Club on makes a kiddie thief think twice about breaking into my car. The Club is solidly constructed and it's very easy to use - no key needed to extend and lock it on the steering wheel. Many people tell me a thief can break it in 30 seconds, but a couple mechanics, and the cop living across the street from me, says it's quite an effective deterrent.

I don't give it five stars because when it's installed on an airbag-equipped steering wheel, it's placed horizontally, and because the handle is long and heavy, it puts a lot of weight on the right side of the wheel. I just don't know if this is going to cause long-term misalignment of the steering wheel. Not a big deal, and I'll just turn my steering wheel so the Club sits vertically, but it's a concern. Second, the instruction sheet is terribly written, likely by a non-English speaker. Third, the guarantee is only for $500 and only good for the first 12 months, plus you must return the registration cutout within 5 days of purchase (I got it from Amazon via overnight shipping).

All in all, I think the Club is a good visible anti-theft device *in addition* to an active alarm system or another, more advanced anti-theft system. Get this original club as copycat locking clubs (one of which I used before on a Geo) definitely don't work.

Somewhere in the mid-80s I purchased "The Club" (original model with bright-red handle). I was worried about getting my car stolen. I live in a high-theft area (San Diego) and I park daily on large parking lots and in large parking garages, the preferred shopping areas for car thieves according to the local police. I read several articles about "The Club" and bought it. I've since used it with two Datsuns (280Z, pickup), two Toyotas (pickups) and a Honda SUV. All were prime theft material according to police reports. Well, after 25+ years in a high-risk area, none of my vehicles were stolen and none showed any signs of an attempt. Was the record due, at least in part, to "The Club?" Perhaps.

I was an amateur locksmith in my youth and I tried to open "The Club" sans key. I couldn't. The device is made of hardened steel so sawing seemed unlikely. Sawing the steering wheel would probably be easier. "The Club" rendered the cars useless. I'm certain there are people who could remove a "Club," but it would probably take time and specialized tools. Most thieves would probably shop around in the large lots and garages and go after easier marks. Employing "The Club" probably makes a theft more complicated and riskier. Hence, they probably move on to elsewhere. At least, that's how I view it.

About five years ago, I dropped "The Club" on a concrete driveway and broke the key off in the slot making the locking mechanism unworkable. Dismayed, I began thinking about buying another. Then the thought came to me that the real value of "The Club" was as a visual deterrent and that would hold true even with the lock broken. A thief would have to break into the car to discover the broken lock, and he might not notice it even then. So, I've been using it that way ever since. So far, so good.
