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.Read more ›
So I went to my local Auto Parts chain outlet and stood looking at the options. Decided against a "brake pedal" lock. Figured I'm more likely to actually follow through with a steering wheel lock.
At my Auto Parts store they had two versions of The Club... the yellow double hooks version and this red "original" club, both "Club" brand.
The yellow double hooks version package stated that it had a $500 guarantee. The red Original version's package said it had a $1800 guarantee.
The double hooks look like they'd be more of a hindrance to a thief, so I was really quite puzzled why it had less than a third of the Original's guarantee. The yellow double hooks version also cost $20 at my Auto Parts Store whereas this red Original one cost $40.
I truly don't know whether there is something "wrong" or "weaker" about the yellow one or if the price and guarantee differences are nothing but a marketing gimmick but I decided to go with the Original. (Probably heavily influenced by The Club commercials saturating tv when I was a kid in the 80's.)
The Club goes on and off my steering wheel just fine, as advertised. The lock part DOES look/feel cheaply made. The keys (2 included) feel pretty cheaply made, just slightly better than "stamped out of sheet metal" feel, but they are working. There is a serial number engraved on the keys but it is very unclear and confusing whether or not it's possible to acquire additional spare keys if you need any.Read more ›
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.

Its a little rocky at first, in the sense that I had no clear knowledge of how it actually had to be set the correct way. Because the tiny image on the packaging is very limited. Read morePublished 6 hours ago by M.G
