SHARON, Pa., Nov. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Club" Steering Wheel Lock is a visible deterrent, locked across a steering wheel to help prevent auto theft. It's bright color and placement across the steering wheel warns would-be thieves that the vehicle is protected, and may prompt them to move on to an easier target before even trying to break in. That can save the owner the damage that a would-be theft could have caused an attempt to steal the vehicle. Nearly 3,000 vehicles are stolen each day in the United States.
Vehicle theft is costly to the owner in both the vehicle loss and the inconveniences: filing police reports, working with an insurance claim, and living without a vehicle. Transportation to work, to school, for the owner and family members all change when short a vehicle. Protecting it from auto theft with "the Club" is a first line of defense. "The Club" comes with a guarantee if the car is stolen, may reimburse the owner's insurance deductible up to specific amounts, based on the model used for the first year you own your "The Club" (specifics available online at http://store.winner-intl.com/steering-wheel-locks-c103.aspx).
"We specialize in mechanical products when it comes to vehicle security," said Jerry Trontel, President of the makers of "The Club", Winner International. "We all need to protect our property, and that certainly includes our vehicles. The disruption of your life is additional stress on top of all the costs that come along with being the victim of auto theft. A product that is simple to use is more likely to be used. Its high visibility alerts a thief before they break-in, and the tempered steel used in the product makes it tough to defeat and remove from the steering wheel. There is no alarm involved so the user is not depending on someone else to intervene if an alarm goes off. We prefer simple, mechanical security," added Trontel.
Vehicle theft hot spots are currently Albuquerque, NM, Anchorage AK, Pueblo CO, Redding CA, St Joseph MO, Bakersfield CA, Modesto CA, Stockton-Lodi CA, Yuba City CA, and Springfield MO according to NICB's 2017 Hot Spots Vehicle Theft Report. Theft has a history of being conducted for joy-riding, for supplying chop-shops with parts, and for exports.
There are a number of practical tips to help prevent vehicles from being stolen. In addition to never leaving the keys in the ignition, make sure to lock the vehicle. Don't leave a spare key in an obvious place, park in well-lit areas and public spaces. Of course, adding the extra security of the highly visible "The Club" adds a layer of protection by alerting the thief ahead of time, to move on to an easier target.
