Locking steering??

Hey Group,

I haven't been able to find any reference to this question so far.
Does everyone have to turn the steering 180 degrees over (either left or right) to get the steering wheel to lock when the keys are out? The Rav we have locks right at the top when you pull the key. This isn't a big deal but it is a bit annoying and after reading about the Taco brother who had his new truck stolen a little while ago, every bit helps.
07 access cab TRD Off Road.
And to the Taco brother in South Cal hope it all works out and our thoughts are with you--hope yo're behing the wheel again soon--keep us posted.

Thanks, FMB

(hoping not to happen to my 'Diva". hope this info helps

Yes, and today is the first time I discovered the wheel would actually lock. For a while I thought either the steering lock was broken or I was just a 'tard. Looks like the latter.
