Unfortunately, every year crime has steadily been increasing and in many cases car owners are affected. Therefore, any precaution measure against theft is a good and adequate investment, so let's talk a little bit about that.
Wheel Lock Types
In order to complicate the thieves’ work on making unscrewing keys, nowadays the manufacturers diversify the following models of wheel locks:
- Thread head bolts. The lock lies in the complex forms. The more complex they are, the higher the price is;
- Bolts in the shape of asymmetric polygon. The differences lies in the internal or external variations and the number of figures. There are some with 30-40 squares;
- Bolts with perforated profile. These bolts feature many holes of different or the same diameter. As in the first case, the price depends on the complexity of implementation.
Wheel lock features
It is important the use of these bolts to be difficult without the necessary tools in order to be effective. For this to happen, an important point is the screw head to be low and to have a protective wheel. So, it will rotate if an attempt to be clasped with ordinary pliers is made.
On the other hand, the material from which the product is made also plays an important role in protecting the tires from theft. After the thief understands that they won’t succeed in unscrewing the bolts, they will try harder using force and here sustainability is a very important factor. The best option is steel. It is hard, dense and difficult to mechanically manipulate and destroy it.
We advise not to resort to performances with a plurality of slots, because in time a lot of mud and dirt gets in them and this interferes with your attempts to unscrew your tires when needed. Furthermore, the complex structure of the lock will make working with the element hard, which takes time, effort and nerves.
Make preference to the asymmetric and nonlinear shapes on the top. The only condition is to have the key lock and everything will be fine.
