Securing of vehicles
WHAT ABOUT MECHANICAL PROTECTIONS?
Mechanical protection against car theft is only a limited deterrent!
Here you have to clearly distinguish what you want to achieve.
100% protection is almost impossible and someone who wants it too safe may not be able to bring his vehicle to safety in time in the event of a fire.
In the Cologne newspaper "Kölner Anzeiger" in October 2017 you could read the corresponding information: Thieves steal a vintage Ferrari whose owner had installed an electronic immobiliser, a steering wheel anti theft lock and a tyre claw.
Meanwhile it is also known from surveillance tapes/records that mechanical safety devices are overcome whenever the thief either has time or an underground car park is the ideal environment for car thieves!
How do the thieves work?
Not all thieves are so creative that they dress up as ADAC at a club meeting, ask the theft victim's clubmates for help and all help together to push the supposedly broken-down collector's item onto the trailer.
But especially in the theft from underground garages, whether public or private, exactly one aid is used, so-called Car Jacks, exactly four of them. Placed under each wheel, the car can be lifted hydraulically and finally placed on a trailer like a shopping trolley.
If the thieves now have a Mercedes Benz
No matter how well the vehicle is secured, mechanical safety devices are easily overcome. If the vehicle is lifted in the event of theft, mechanical safety devices are of little help. Nevertheless, they are of course useful if the vehicle is only parked for a short time, because the thief needs more time to overcome the security device.
