Mul-T-Lock

Hi Willem-Jan,
Having seen once my LC being broken into with a scredriver I can assure you
picking the lock to open the door in seconds is the last thing you need to do.
There's even more ways to force the doors open, without being caught carrying
an incriminating special tool.
As for shurlok, I am wondering where this gadget goes on the car - surely not
on the chassis.

Interesting comments on this company and its accessories.
(Sorry for the delayed response but been up-country for a while)
I can sense a fellow aid and development agency employee is here and
used to using these things.
But if I may elaborate.
The lock in any of its forms usually locks the vehicle in reverse
gear. But it comes in different forms. So if any of you are thinking
of buying one (about 150 quid in UK) then do not buy the model which
is let into the side of the transmission tunnel as there is no visual
deterrence. A very neat job but the thief will only discover it when
he tries to put it in gear after starting it - and no, they don't
read the sticker on the driver's door telling them that one is fitted.
The best is the largest and ugliest. It is a large steel plate welded
to the side of the transmission tunnel, on top of which is the
locking gubbins. The vehicle is put into reverse (even an auto) and
then a large loose padlock hasp encloses the lever (a horseshoe piece
of machined steel, very hard and about 12mm thick. It is pressed into
the locking section which is screwed to the weld-on plate with screw
heads covered by all the locking gubbins when clamped-up. Before you
lock it you must reverse the vehicle up to a brick wall or similar
obstruction blocking the getaway in reverse !
It is very visual and that is the deterrent. But you can scrape your
knee/leg on it. In fact on a manual 80 the LHD drive version (like
mine) is best cos the locking stuff is on the right hand side of the
transmission tunnel. The keys are very high security, can only be
cut by an agent of the lock, and you even then have to produce an ID
card with the key code, something like a credit card to get a replacement.
On my current 80 I had no choice but to find an alternative. So I got
one of the disc lock steering wheel covers that totally encloses the
wheel, and it has pretty good visual deterrence too. But I admit that
I casn confirm that it does not stop the bastards breaking the window
and trashing the interior. Even totally obscured windows (by film)
will not prevent them breaking-in on the off-chance.

the mul-t-lock on my 4runner locks the 2h/4h/4l lever in neutral so i don't
need to bring a brick wall with me. it is one of the few things that
actually deters car theft in africa unless your tsotsis are carrying
something extremely cold and a 2 1/2 lb hammer!
