Heavy artillery on the protection of car
Mechanical antitheft system, firstly,should not be confused with alarms. When installing locks no interference in the car's electrical system. However, the security properties locks often even better than electronic systems. Secondly, the mechanical locks are mounted on the gearbox, steering column, or the hood. Open them only with a special key.

To produce the same duplicate key (in case of loss) is possible only in the service center of the company Mul-T-Lock or Construct in the presence of all documents and a special card with a code.

Three heroes of iron
The most popular is a mechanical lockProtection on the gearbox. Action anti-theft lock on the "mechanics" a little less useful than the automatic transmission. It is located at the rear of speed when closing the lock position of the shift lever. Then, if desired, the vehicle can be evacuated.

Now mainly used besshtyrevye gearshift locks itself when the pin is inside the box and opening / closing it is not necessary to get. The lock is very small and does not spoil the appearance of the interior.

Lock prevents the crank wheel, at the same time it does not matter what position she is steering. Set locking the car console, with the position of the stopper completely prevents access to the terminal screws. A small minus of the steering lock can be regarded as limited access to it - even the owner of the car does not always succeed the first time to close the lock, because it has to do blindly. But the anti-theft effect is almost one hundred percent.
Mechanical locks are effective in the hoodunauthorized access, if the car is worth alarm. Usually hijackers first open the hood to strike or to disconnect the siren. Later thieves open the car itself. Castle on the hood does not do it, because it can be opened only from inside the car, and even search for the place of installation. The time when the larva is only installed in the glove compartment, are long gone.
