Well I purchased the claw about six months ago, since then sold it to a relative and has been in use every since. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to deter a thief. The features of it are wonderful, and heck it's cheaper now than what I paid for it a few months back by ten dollars. At any rate, well worth the money.
More about the item. Sturdy. Rugged. Durable. Reliable. It comes with three keys, wonderful since they can not be duplicated. A small cover over the lock to ensure moisture doesn't ruin the mechanisms. Prominent enough to be easily recognized.
A little know fact about cars, or perhaps not thought about. If you have a FWD car, place the device on the front wheel since this is where your drive axle is and thief would not only have to remove the tire claw from the vehicle, but also hot wire the car or burst the steering column in order to steal. The opposite is true for a RWD vehicle. An AWD drive vehicle either/or, is just as grand.
Side note/freebie: The repossession man, most likely with a creeper on his/her truck, can't tow a front-wheel drive vehicle from the back. Will strip the transmission. A rear-wheel drive vehicle (most trucks) cannot be towed from the front. It takes too long to place it on a flatbed, and defeats the purpose of the speedy recovery. Someone may say, well they may have dolly wheels. Correct. But you can't speed down the freeway with those on a car.
Note: There are two different sizes for the tire claw. Be sure to order the correct one. The one (XL) or 491 model fits around most car tires and probably some truck tires. You can check the specs on another site to verify. The 493 model is designed for smaller tires, such as motorcycles and dirt bikes. Make your choice correctly and wisely or you will definitely be disappointed.
Second review, hope it helped somebody.
I'M MR.COPPER. THAT'S MY TWO CENTS. NOW SPEND IT WISELY.
Sure, you might look a little funny when throwing this thing on your ride, but that's a small price to pay for the sense of security that comes from knowing it's in place. The visual aspect of this thing as a theft deterrent is second to none! I use this in combination with wheel locks on my 1969 Camaro and have actually watched would be car thieves walk away in defeat after seeing this thing, it's a rather amusing sight! The only way for a car thief to bypass the tire claw is either with a cutting torch or a flatbed truck, neither of which are something you're average car thief will have with them. Easy on, Easy off, Easy storage, Easy decision!
