Happy Friday allcool

As thefts of vehicles are on the rise as per our insurers. For our motorhome we are looking to purchase a Milenco wheel clamp £136 the type that fits over the wheel. Anyone out there using one? All advise welcome on any type of extra security.

Sorry for the late reply Rocky, I missed it when you first posted.

Yes, I have had an alert when I drove it down to my house prior to a trip away before this last lockdown.

I also had a couple of spurious alerts when I first got it, due to the GPS signal returning slightly erroneous coordinates, but this was easily resolved by enlarging the radius of my saved zone.

All in all, not a bad piece of kit for £20 and a lot better than an in-built tracker draining my vehicle battery.

Doesn’t sound like the brightest of thieves! You can buy professional tools off-the-shelf to split mc chains. Alternatively use a good hacksaw and/or file or grind off the rivet heads - not difficult.

I wasn't talking drive chain but the chunky security chain that bikers put through their wheels with no rivets and like i said it takes up to an hour to even dent one of those.
