Why You Should Consider Car Wheel Locks
If you’ve just spent a lot of money on some expensive wheels for your car, you want to protect your investment. While car alarms are generally a good idea and can work well, the problem is that people have become almost immune to the sound of car alarms because too many people set them at a level that is far too sensitive. In other words, people just assume that when a car alarm goes off, it’s a false alarm. So many times, a car alarm won’t protect your wheels and you need something more.
This is why you want to consider wheel locks; they are brilliant deterrents. They make wheel and tire theft almost impossible. They are like the regular lug nuts wheels come with, but can only be removed with a specially shaped wheel-lock key that can be carried in the trunk of the car. People who use wheel locks usually only need to use one lock per wheel, but some car owners feel more secure using two locks per wheel. What makes wheel locks something you want to consider for your car is that they are very hard to remove in a quiet manner; a thief would need to make a tremendous amount of banging or would need to use a pneumatic tool to remove them. A car alarm might not alert people that a robbery is taking place, but the use of loud tools would make anyone think something very wrong was happening.
Anti-theft lug nuts simply aren’t as effective as car wheel locks when it comes to deterring criminals. These lug nuts are more difficult to remove than regular ones; but in the end, they can be removed with the appropriate tools quite quickly and quietly when an organized team is involved.
