LR Security

Hi,

Can anyone recommend the best manual security device I can get for my
Landy (110 defender '98). I've had a look at the disklok at Halfords
and as far as I'm aware its ok (thatcham cat 3), but it is huge, and
I'd rather not have that kicking about the cab.

I'm aware if the peddle locking devices, can anyone recommend any of
these.

Can anyone tell me the diameter of a standard landrover steering wheel
so if I go for the disklok I can get the right size?

Cheers
Dave

I use a clutch claw on my 110. How effective it would be I don't know, but
it is very well made and a quite substantial bit of kit. It definitely
wouldn't be too easy to remove without the keys.

You'd most likely need oxy cutting gear or an angle grinder which would
hopefully draw someones attention to the fact someones trying to nick your
Landy.

In my 110 I can get it to entwine itself in the frame of the centre rear
seat which is a very handy, safe, easy to reach storage place for it.

Can't you just measure yours? :-)

Re: LR Security

Na just remove the pedals easier than removing the clutch claw.

seriosly I thougt to myself after I had a bit of difficulty turning the key
on mine how I would ever remove the bugger and I reckoned saw off the pedals
and jerry build a makeshift to replace them :)

You can even drive without a steering wheel if you have to, I have herd of
using mole grips on the column.

Re: LR Security

remember once when my throttle cable snapped on a previos motor, at least
that wont happen with my Landie (mind you the links have gone awol)

at the moment my biggest concern is that my handbrake has given up the ghost
on anything but a moderate slope :(

If it's petrol taking the rotor arm with you is fair security! I always
leave mine in transfer box neutral too, it may just fool somone long enough
to put them off.

True, you could cut the pedals off, but you won't be driving it anywhere
if you do! I guess someone could knock up something in advance to slip on
to the stumps left by cutting the pedals off.

I reckon if someone is that determined to get your vehicle then you will
have a tough time stopping them anyway.

IMHO the clutch claw should stop most people for long enough to deter them.

On the 110, when it had carb for petrol and LPG, it had an "off" position on
the (unmarked) changeover switch, which was a cunning security device;
applied equally well after it went gas-only, as it still had an "off"
position. Granted, it'd be easily bypassed, but only if you know you have
to and know what to connect.
