Advice on Landrover Security
by CSW - 13:10 on 06 October 2017
The following information has been shared with me by Mr John S from Twitter - thank you very much for the advice!
There are many different security devices people can use to delay/prevent the theft of their vehicles. Anyone who owns a Defender is advised to fit as many of these security devices as possible to their vehicles
The items listed below have approximate price given to show how easy it is to secure your "Landy"
Pedal lock plate - The plates are easy to fit and cover all three pedals which prevents the vehicle from being moved. These are NOT available from Landrover, which is strange but true. When purchasing one, please be aware that there is a different plate for the Defender 90 with the Puma engine; price approx. £80.00.
Tracker - There are various trackers offering that vehicles can be tracked live, it can be tracked for its history so you can see where it has been. One of the trackers has a fuel cut-off which can be activated remotely through the phone. There is a panic button fitted which can be activated to cut the fuel off if someone wants to steal the vehicle while you are in it. The approx. price is £45.00; it will require installing by an auto electrician.
Tracker stickers - These can be purchased for a couple of pound. Even if there's no tracker, it could be a deterrent.
Locking wheel nuts - These can be purchased from Landrover and vary in price depending on the type of wheels the vehicle has.
Alarm - Ensuring you have a good (and loud) alarm fitted can help deter.
Keep your vehicle in a well-lit area and/or the garage with keys kept away from windows and letterboxes (there is a method whereby keys can be stolen via letterbox using simple everyday device).
As stated at the beginning of this post the information has been received from a Twitter user called John - many thanks indeed.
