Can you suggest good wheel clamp/lock?

Post by Pear Tree on Sat Apr 22, 2017 5:47 pm

Hi
I am about to take delivery of a new Bourton and want to buy a wheel lock. What do you suggest? All suggestions for a make, size and supplier welcome.
Thank you

I have one of these. Google Milenco wheel clamp for motorhomes  Get good one as think of the price of your van.
I only use it at home but also have a steering lock which I use when away. It takes some getting used to but once you've mastered getting it on and off it's no problem. I've had mine three years.

We have both, - the Milenco wheel clamp and the steering wheel disklok. As far as we are concerned both excellent buys and give us peace of mind parked in the drive at home. We also have the Sigma cat 1 alarm fitted when we bought the van. I know from this forum that better alarms do exist, but the Sigma is value for money for us.

The Nemesis is based on designs used by most major wheel 
clamping enforcements agencies and the DVLA.

I purchased the Bulldog CA2000 Centaur Wheel Clamp which is has a very good rating on soldsecure.com website, along with a Sigma cat 1 alarm hopefully all will remain safe.

Hi all
Thanks for your help. Have bought a bulldog clamp. It seems very sturdy. Downside is the weight and the skin I have lost off my knuckles trying to set it up for the first time! Anyway all good and fitted securely.
