    Steering Lock and RNS-e

    Hi.
    After reading one of the recent threads i've been looking round on various websites to try and find a Thatcham approved steering wheel lock, which is long enough to cover the RNSe.
    Can anyone recommend a lock that will do the job? Don't really want to buy a smaller one and mod it myself.

    Will this be effective enough? Surely one bash with something heavy will bust the steering column lock and allow this to turn out of the way.

    Ah right, never thought of that. I'd make a lousy thieve!

    Actually, i think that this would be quite a deterrent, too much hassle and it would do a good job of preventing the thief from being able to see if is an RNS-E.

    PS: There was another thread started today for RNS-E covers, check it out.
