Rohan, if you observe carefully, the mount/cast on which the gear lever is located is pretty high. Also if I'm judging correctly it is a bit slanted as well. I don't think there is a base plate designed for such a unique case as in the i10. Someone might be designing it. A Pin type from Hyundai (for santro )may work out. Just enquire with Hyundai dealers.

I have just one more doubt. The gear lever has to be in what postition (1st gear / reverse gear / neutral / anywhere) at the time of locking ? Please tell for both pin type and U type gear locks.

@ prince_pervez - You mentioned in the other thread that you lock it in the neutral position. But the manufacturers generally recommend the gear to be engaged in the 1st gear or reverse gear while parking. So is it advisable to lock the gear lever in the neutral position ?

Rohan,
Bangalore
Depends. If you have big wall upfront after you've parked @ home then slot it in first and lock the gear lever. So even if there is a break in the thug would have to crash through the wall to get away.
Exactly opposite for a reverse gear.
For a neutral position lock, the gear will not be engaged and so the car won't move. But again, if a determined thief and his gang is willing to push the car then, you might end in bad luck.
Thats the reason, I too, did not go for a neutral position install. I lock it in third gear.
Someone on some other thread mentioned Honda installs their gear locks in reverse gear.

So generally, the installer will tell you, for which gear lever position/gear number, the lock is designed for.

Yes, I have gone through the other thread regarding gear locks. The pictures posted by you guys were really useful.

But my problem remains unresolved because of the dash mounted gear lever in i10.

I tried my best to search team-bhp, but I cound not find any photo of i10 gear lock. I even searched on google, but no luck.
Just barge into any accessories gallery and ask for it - I had a similar gear lock in my santro, one of my friend's i10 has also a gear lock installed...

The Pin type gear lock in Santro can be locked in any gear, as per the parking requirement. in the manual, it is advised to be locked in reverse.

Nope, not in nuetral, as the pin would be obstructed by the gear stick.

Default Gear Lock Dilema

Guys,

I am fixing a gear lock after reading horrifying stories about car thefts on our forum. I own a Santro 2007 XO Limited Edition Model.

Xenos Pin type Gear Lock @ Xenos Botique Chennai:
Asked Authorized Xenos Botique outlet at chennai. He told me he does not have the plate to fix the Gear lock. the plate needs to be sourced from Delhi. Fitment time quoted is 2 hours wait and take away. cost 1600/- with Plate, shipping charges from Delhi, Fitment and Pin type Gear Lock.

Hyundai Original Gear Lock @ HMP Chennai:
Asked HMP Chennai as i am planning to get my car serviced from them. They quoted 3500 for equipment + fitment.

What would be a better option. Higher Price not a constraint for me as Safety, Quality, Warranty and Neatness of Execution is a must for me.

Suggestions

Bharath, go for Xenos. Hyundai sources its Gearlocks most probably from Crosslink Wheels, doesn't manufactures them.

Default Looking for Gearlock for Logan

Hi

I'm also looking for Gear Lock for my trusted Logan.

Can anyone help me in finding the place where I can get it ?

I've already checked with Autocop guys in Bangalore and they told that they do not sell Gear locks in Bangalore.

I'm desparately looking for some help in this regard.

There are lots of car accessory shops on JC road, you could try there.

I inquired in Advaith Hyundai regarding gear lock for i10. They suggested me to try in JC road.

I've already checked at JC Road and 90% of the dealers are saying because it is not popular here, hence they do not sell or may be their excuse that Bangalore is not theft prone city like Delhi.

Hey Rohan, I got the gear lock fitted on to my i10 few months before from Advaith Hyundai. Get in touch with Advaith on Residency Road, they have the gear lock for i10. They charged me Rs 1600/- for the lock including the fitting charges.

Thanks a lot mate.

I will go to Advaith Residency Road this weekend.

Could you post some pics please. I hope the gear lock does not obstruct the driver's knee.

Finally got the gear lock fitted in my i10. Thanks for the help.
The gear lock is pin type and beige in colour. It is Autocop/Hyundai brand.

Price of gear lock was Rs 1350, but fitting chrages are high since it requires a lot of time and effort to install. The accessory guy initially quoted Rs 2000. After bargaining and giving your reference, he reduced to Rs 1700.
