BTW even the "club" can be busted easily. spray some freon on the bar and hit it hard with a hammer and it will split. the hard working crook can cut through it in about 10 min with a good hacksaw.

However the 1st step of car security is deterence. sort of like the detante of the cold war days.

Oh No! thats real scary *
till now i had absolute faith in my Autocop system. The last time a thief tried to break into my car the siren went off and so did the thief. I guess the poor guy was a low tech thief.
Where can i purchase a mechanical locking device?? in hyderabad??

I got a GRIP Vigilante locally. about 700-800 rs 10 years ago. there are many local sources in opera house mostly china make but they should be just as good as a CLUB as Winner Intl. makes the CLUB in China too.

I have one of those Security systems...Wills & wheels to be specific. I'm also aware that they are rather simple & can be easily broken into but the only reason for getting it was Keyless entry & central locking which didn't come with my Indica DLS.
