    New Anti Theft Device. I know it's not going to stop anyone but it should be an annoyance for someone trying to steal it:)

    2ft Chain 8 dollars

    That looks like it would be a natural deterrent.

    Just imagining some guy looking at the locks through the glass, then walking off. :laugh:

    That should work well. I can't imagine any theif even thinking of trying to mess with that. But it won't slow them down too much if they know that there are just 2 bolts holding that handle on. Nice original idea.

    I dunno, I think thieves would go for it anyways, just to add it on the list of anti-theft "systems" that they've passsed... It would :annoyed:beginners though. Lol.

    Just a couple questions...

    Where in the hell do you live that you have to put a 50lb chain around your steering wheel to deter thieves?!

    Where in the fuck do you store that thing when not in use?!

    I hope you have a storage case bolted to your frame because in the event of an accident that things becomes a dangerous projectile in your cab!

    Not trying to troll but I can get that lock off with a pop can in about 5 seconds...

    Although if your stupid enough to steal a car then you probably don't have the smarts to undo that lock.

    Na bro it takes about 5-10 seconds if you've had practice and the lock is worn from being locked many many times...

    Nah you not you just informing him, but yeah "most" guys would just cut the steering wheel in less then 5 sec. Now days if they want it they are going to try damn hard to get it those fuckin bastards!
