If no welding is involved, it sounds (to me) like you may need to drill a hole in your chassis to feed a security cable to ("...in seconds").


Does anybody know how these boxes attach to your vehicle?

I'm just thinking they look like a convenient box for a thief to carry away your valuables in.

Not sure what you do with these. The desciption isn't very descriptive! It looks like you get a strong cable that wraps around a secured part of the vehicle, such as the seat. I don't know how the carpet attachment works and it wouldn't fit under my car seat due to the bar adjusters for the seat sliding mechanism. In principle it sounds great, but unfortunately there are none in stock near me. Thanks OP for posting.

Thanks for the extra piccie mate. I have one already, it is secured using a steel braided cable with the usual loop on one end and a pin at the other. I loop the cable around the front seat fixing (underneath). The pin end of the cable goes into a slot in the box which locks in place when the lid is closed and locked. Hope that helps.....

Car safe? You'd never fit a car inside that!

No problem. As mentioned above I would also struggle to find one of these beneath my passenger seat (primarily because they have additional wiring underneath for the heating elements, but also because of the seat adjustment bar).

If the cable is looped back through itself like you would do with a laptop security cable then I may be able to find somewhere in my boot for the box, but then it isn't that great carrying all your valuables to the boot to "hide" them securely if you have to do that in view of anybody watching when you arrive at a destination.

Thanks for listing, but I still have concerns that this may not be a product I can make full use of.

I have added "heat" regardless.

Oh, very amusing.

I wish they'd armour the gloveboxes like this and make them lock automatically.

Good review @ Autoexpress.

Hot from me. Reserved one but will have to check cars to see if it will fit.

Isn't the sight of one of these going to attract thieves like a magnet?

I think the idea is that it slides under the seat.....

Still gotta watch out for the tea leafs with xray vision though :thumbsup:

The Police could affix large magnets to the paddy wagons and round up crooks by driving around. :w00t:
