2 Simple Questions.

1. Is it as good as they say?

2. Is it the best "lightweight" clamp around?

Any answers, positive and negative gratefully received.

1 Well its easy to fit,you only know how good it is if it has an attempt to attack it! Very good visual deterrent.

2 I wouldn't say its lightweight,but I haven't weighed the others!

3 I think its an excellent piece of kit.

We bought one for the new caravan last year.

Had the receiver stud fitted by the dealer to the correct torque so didn't need to faff about swapping with one of the wheel studs myself.

As Fozzie says, it is very easy to fit and take off.

We also have our old Milenco Compact wheelclamp that we use on the other side. I would say the Nemesis is both easier to fit and lighter than the Milenco, though I wouldn't call either of them light.

Also as mentioned, you will only find out how good it is if there is an attempt to remove it by a norty person.surprised

all locks are not anti theft devices, they are a there to deter the thief from attempting to take the van. If they want it they will get it, but if it's just a straight forward van they want thats easier to nick then you have more chance they will leave yours alone as to much trouble trying to remove the devices. The nemisis is a good bit of kit and very easy to fit. I fit the alko hitch to the front axle and the nemisis to the rear as doesn't need any lining up to fit. Also thinking of getting another for the other side of van.

Thanks. I already have a decent hitch lock and an alarm but we've always had quite small caravans which have a low theft rate. We're now buying a larger outfit and I think I'll buy one of these for peace of mind.

I take it you mean the Nemisis Ultra which we have. It is easy to fit and  lightweight compared with most of the other clamps although there is a knack to fitting it as it is not quite as simple as the makers video suggests. I do get a discount on my insurance with it though.

Milenco have also brought out their own version which might be worth a look.

There is also the original Nemisis which is more conventional and very heavy.

Is the "special" receiver wheel bolt they feature, an item that the road side recovery services staff can readily remove with normal kit, should a puncture wheel change be needed?

Or do you have to furnish them with a unique adaptor, as you would with locking bolts?

There is a ‘special’ piece of metal that you insert into the wheel brace to remove the receiver wheel nut.  I’ve always thought a gash piece of flat bar cut to size would do the job.  I’ve got a nearly new one which I would be willing to flog

I am sure my receiver wheel nut just fitted with my wheel brace,and then torqued up.

I lost the adapter on mine but removed with an allen key. got 2 new ones from Purpleline(makers) and keep in van and one in the original carrying case. 19mm socket as per wheel brace. I would say there as easy to fit as the video says.
