I saw this a couple of weeks ago but it was OOS at the time, been waiting to see if it would become available again and noticed it had.



I’ve never seen it this cheap anywhere before, even cheaper than the original Stoplock.



Car Buyer rated it 2nd best steering wheel lock 2018, the first being the Disklok carbuyer.co.uk/tip…018

Buy one of these, keep it by your bed and if car thief comes into your house for your keys you smash them in the head with the stop-lock. See, it does work!
Don’t waste your money and get a DiskLok so much better. Takes 5 seconds to take off, 5 seconds to put on. Takes car thieves much much longer if they angle grind it

The non pro is supposed to be 5 seconds. This one is supposed to take 5 minutes plus.
Use one on my Fiesta, its a visable deterant

Cheers, I had bought the elite last week for £55 from Amazon so will return it. £25 is a bargain!

Whilst disklock is more secure I found it to be too bulky, and you can't just keep it in passenger footwell. This is just as good as a deterrent and less bulky.

Can you not put it underneath the passenger seat at the rear. It is bulky but deffo worth it
The only steering lock worth getting is the Disklok. Takes around 10/15 minutes to break into one of those. These Stoplocks take a few minutes, if that.
This is one of those situations where cheap means ineffective.
Not a trade I'm willing to make when protecting such an expensive possession.
Disklok or nothing.

It's not ineffective. It's just not as secure as disklock. It still will act as a deterrent and takes 5mins plus to break.

This isn't the original stoplock from the 90s!! Things have moved on you know...
As Anglebox said, it is more to deter any would be thief, and not intended to completely prevent your car being stolen. Actually, I've just noticed, car buyer rates it no1 and not 2.

Guess it depends on the car. I found it marked my steering wheel and made me nervous everytime I fitted/removed it thinking I was going to crack the windscreen...

If it works for you, great. But for me it was too much faff, so I swapped for one of these which, whilst not as secure, its a visual deterrent more than anything...

My car is keyless, so biggest concern is that or someone breaking into house after car keys (already happened once). Most theives are looking for the easy option so I doubt they are going to be grinding / sawing steering wheels. They would just pick another easy target.

The problem is most people have the lock key on with the car key. So they steal the car key and remove the lock.
So for it to be any use you need to keep the car key and lock key separate.

I remember when I was a kid, seeing someone struggling to drive a car with one still attached to their steering wheel, presumably lost the key. Fortunately my dad passed them before they reached the junction.
Here's a guide to see which stopcock will fit your car, as some people say it sets the car horn off or doesn't fit over the airbag.

I keep a massive pry bar under the bed - just in case I want to lift any floorboards during the night .

Anyone who comes into my home to steal is pondlife scum and deserves everything they get - the law is an ass on this one (blame all those bleeding-heart liberal lefties for that). Breaking and entering is not accidental, not carelessness, not foolishness: it's a deliberate act and should be treated far more seriously.

20 seconds is abit of an exaggeration... Plus they have to make two cuts if you fit it correctly, so talking at least a few mins. Regardless, noone is saying it prevents theft. If they want your car there is nothing you can do to stop them.. disklok or not..

Even if it did take 20 seconds, it's better than nothing...

What have bleeding heart liberals got to do with it? Law has been the same for donkeys years, you can use reasonable force to remove an intruder. Plenty of case law that reasonable force is up to and including lethal force.

If anything the problem is with police forces arresting people when force has been used rather than giving them the benefit of the doubt. But that is the culture in the police, not politics.

Fully agree, these days an intruder is a threat to life in my opinion and should be dealt with accordingly, as a king defends his castle

Why would they not just steal the car key and also the lock key then? Can they only be bothered to pick up one set of keys.

Well if your car key is in your kitchen and the lock key is in your pocket down the pub then they may steal your cd collection but won't be taking the car.
Put one of these in your car as a viable deterrent so a potential car thief can see you don't have enough money for a decent alarm therefore will probably have not paid to top up the oil, service every 10k miles, and never used a premium fuel. No one would pinch a car with the potential to breakdown 20 yards down the road.
worked for me twenty years ago if placed on wheel properly such that it cannot be moved thief spent all night sawing off steering wheel could not move it.Not sure needed with immobilizers standard on most cars

Are you a bleeding heart liberal or just keen to start a debate? Either way I hope you aren't trying to defend someone who breaks into a house for purposes of theft. Police are almost an irrelevance these days and intruders will be long gone before they take notice and probably won't even attend the scene.
Heat added!

Great for whacking people when you have the road rage!
