The steering wheel lock is clearly visible, so the idea is that one look at it and the thief will move on to another car.

  • Budget: There are a variety of these devices available on the market, at various price points.

  • Durability and ease of use: Be sure to look for one that is durable and can’t be cut through, one that features a good quality lock, and that is user-friendly to put into place.
