I had the club in the steering wheel clearly visible when the car was stolen. After picking up the car in the police pound and paying $300 I noticed no steering wheel among other things missing. Police mentioned some thieves wear necklaces strung with hard/mineral stones when drawn back and forth can easily cut through the steering wheel. A store next to the police pound sold second hand parts for cars. For $150 I bought a rear window wind deflector that looked exactly like the one that was on my car.Interesting. It’s just a deterrent, it’s not going to stop someone determined to steal a car. I think the steering wheel locks are more visible though and might work better as a deterrent because the POS thief might not see this pedal lock until he’s already broken into the car.
