I have a Mk1 Austin Healey Sprite Frogeye which has no security on it except that it is stored in a locked garage. This wasn't a problem before as it needed work on it before it could be driven but has now been fully restored. Can anyone recommend a good steering wheel lock which will fit a small steering wheel (the interior is very cramped and small btw)?

I remember seeing a program which featured a Thatcham security "tester" who showed how easy some of them are to break into so would ideally like a secure one!

Just read about Crook locks and apparently they can be removed in less than a minute :oops:

A wheelclamp may be the best solution, together with putting the rotor arm in your pocket. Also there are some pretty reasonably priced garage/shed alarms about, but the usefulness of those depends if your garage is next to your house or a lock up miles away.

Crooklock is the prefered one by the crooks themselves . A documentary on the TV years ago showed a thief removed a Crooklock in 9 seconds . You can buy steering wheel locks with a built in siren and even a pager to go with it , so it will let you know if someones in the garage.They had a one in my local Mapin reduced to £39.99 ,coz I was going to buy it . It looks strong enough to do the job .

Hey mate, did you ever hear of the Frog-eye Fright? My uncle had one in the 60's and he put a Le Mans winning Jaguar engine in it. I believe there's a little info on it somewhere on 't'ininterweb.

Think I'll get the Disklok one although apparently you can still break into them, just takes longer than most (about 5 minutes). Should hopefully act as a good deterrent.

Yeah, you just beat me to it! My uncle was (is) Alan Brooks. He told me about it years ago. There was a road test somewhere but I think it's gone now. It was supposed to putting out around 350bhp which in car of that size, well, hence the name!
