I also preach that gear lock is one of the most essential accessory in a car.

I have U type one from xenos installed.

Xenos Technologies Ltd.

Can someone please clear a doubt. Some while back I found about gear locks for the OHC. I was told that the 'pin' type can not be installed in the OHC and I would need the U type gear lock.

Is this true?

For some vehicles wherein a pin-type cannot be fitted, U-Type is used.

Indica - U-type
Santro - Pin type

@Dadu: I agree with what you said, but my question is that can the OHC really not accommodate the pin type lock. I do not like the U ones since they look bulky and fugly!

The more visible a gear-lock is the better it is as a deterrant to the potential car thief!
Worldwide, it is steering locks that have prevented maximum number of thefts.

GTO, you mentioned about Kryptonite gear lock. Do they have a website for India (for me to search for a dealer in Chennai)? Can I know the exact name of the product that you use?

Thanks a bunch in advance,

Does fitting a pin type lock require us to do anything that would potentially void any kind of warranties on the vehicle or is it a clean install?? Im not familiar with what exactly they do to fix it. Anyone who has got it can may be advice?

Gear lock either pin or u-type doesn't void the warranty, so go ahead and get one for your car. In which car you want to get this fitted?

Im looking at getting one for my i20. Just took delivery today. I got the xenos remote locking done and i was looking at getting a gear lock since the place where i park is not too safe. I know hyundai has a pin type lock but was not readily available or so i was told. i have to place an order it seems. So i decided i'd just go get one from outside but wasnt sure if it involves something that would void any kind of warranty or something. Thanks for the info. Now i know

All the components of gear locks are same apart form the plate, plate differs from model to model. So it must be the specific plate of I20 which is not available with them. You can get either a Minda, Autocop or Nippon gear lock all these are good and retails at around 1000-1200 bucks.

Hi,
Recently got gear lock installed. It is U-type from multicop( autocop ). Now the gearlock is engaged in neutral position please tell me is it safe to have gearlock engaged in neutral position? as anyone can drag the car and then cut the gearlock plate.

You could go to a Honda A.S.S.; they generally have a good supply of gear locks.

I have the Terminator brand gear-lock fitted on all 3 of my cars (Zen, ANHC and Corsa). Found them to be pretty good.

The one with ANHC is amazingly sleek; it is fitted on the left of the gear-box and has a small rod-type arrangement. You slot the gear into 1st and shove the small rod (about 10cm) into the hole and that is it! The conventional U-type can be an eye-sore.

Default Re: Which Gear Lock?

My Local accessories shop whom i had contacted for getting a gear lock for the civic got back to me saying that it's not possible to fit a gear lock in the civic.The guy had contacted Autocop and some other brand co downtown both said that civic it's difficult to fit a gear lock in a civic and they do not make one for the same.

Question what else can i get.I am not interested in electronic gizmos but have more faith in strudy mehcanical locks.I do have a club typed pedal to steering wheel kind of lock but hasn't anyone got a gear lock for a civic.

thanks
