All for the steering locks, I use a Disklok whenever the car is out and about or on the driveway, very sturdy bit of kit.

Weasel, that looks a Hefty bit of Gear and really covers the Steering Wheel Area well. I went for the Stoplock Pro (keep calling it the Older name Krooklok Pro) because it was simplier and easy to install and could be installed Up or Down. But in the end it came down to ease of use, quicker to fit and store and much tougher with several case-hardened parts.
Just found this report which is interesting, but whatever is used I am sure it helps and I think we made a good choice - Dave 😉 👍

Just to keep this problem in the minds of QQ Owners - Dave 🤨

There was some London-centric media (LBC) quacking on it this morning. I suppose its a pick off some other London media and on about using Playstaion Controllers to relay? I might see it somewhere today as I scan the Fake, Semi Fake and Dumb so called News.

Sorry to keep posting these very similiar reports but the problem is not going away and I feel the more posts there are the more QQ Forum members will be aware of these problems and perhaps react - Dave 😉
There was a German Police video shown last week of a couple of Guys trying to Electronically Steal a BMW 8 Cabrio in the country but was a no go - Big House Alone, Security Cameras but the Big Grin from the Owner was his “Biscuit Tin” that saved the car 😂🤣

Car theft has risen by 50% in five years - keep your vehicle safe : https://mol.im/a/8630527

Virtually every report on prevention mentions the same ideas so action by Owners might be worth it, for a small outlay :

1.An old metal tin with a lid or the key covered in metal foil is all you need to put a stop to the thieves as it blocks the signal from the fob that is picked up by a relay device. (done it and it works)

2.You can also buy a metal-lined fabric 'Faraday pouch' to prevent the signal being picked up by a car thief. (I have 2 one for daily use / one for the Spare).

3. Criminals are also put off by simple steering wheel locks – such as the £45 Stoplock. The extra hassle of having to cut through them or pick the traditional key lock will deter many thieves. (Got the Pro Version recommended by Thatcham).

'No vehicle is totally theft-proof but simple inexpensive steps to block fob signals or a lock on a steering wheel can deter most thieves.'

Fact or Fiction ? Just read a report in the Autobild here where a Pilot had his “Keyless” Audi RS 3 car broken into which was left for 5 mins and had two cases stolen valued at €3314. He went eventually through the Courts because his House Insurance would not pay out. The Court result was that the Claim was turned down because wait for it “The Car was Not Broken into”.😡

I can remember reading similiar facts here :
A driver complained to the Financial Ombudsman that his home contents insurer, Royal & Sun Alliance (RSA), had refused his claim after several items were stolen from his car. The insurer told him that he was only covered for theft from his car if 'force and violence' had been used. This is a common clause in home insurance policies to deter claims where someone has left their car or house door unlocked. But it is now also being used to deny claims from victims of keyless crime.

Perhaps we need to be more aware of this problem and the after effects and ensure we are covered ! - Dave 🤨

A dear old pal has had two Fiestas stolen over the last few years - in both cases it’s believed to be due to "stealing" the key's code.
He's just bought a Yaris which has an ordinary key.

Just read this article on Steering Wheel Locks which might be of interest. We are still using our “Stoplock Pro” - Dave 😊

“Car thieves will spot the Stoplock Pro’s bright shade of yellow a mile off. As a bar lock, it’s also quick to install before leaving the car and should fit most steering wheels. In a test, Auto Express found that the Stoplock Pro was as hard to break as the Disklok (more on that below), and reported that cracking it open isn’t exactly a quiet affair, either.”
MECHANICAL security methods such as steering wheel locks are back in vogue, increasingly seen as one of the best ways to make your vehicle less attractive to would-be thieves in a digital age of keyless cars.”
