THEFT DETERRENT LOCK-OUT PLATE
Since steering collar locks are now selling for over $150 or more, there aren’t many options available to secure your car with a locking device.
Theft is still a major concern for owners of these cars. While no theft deterrent is fool proof, this is a simple method to block the console shifter from being moved out of PARK.
This new lock-out plate is machined from a solid block of aluminum, and then a lock cylinder is installed. Next a machined tapered tab is installed on the bottom of the lock tumbler, so when it is engaged, it locks the plate to the console. There is enough of a gap for the tab to engage against the top of the ribbed plastic shifter cover and locks against the bottom of the console metal piece. It will not harm the factory plastic ribbed slider that surrounds the chrome shifter lever. The aluminum block is wide enough to over lap the top plate as well so it can’t be pushed down.
There are no wires and no alarms to worry about. You simply put it into position, turn the key to engage the plate, and remove the key. Even if your car is equipped with an electric alarm system this is a second line of defense that is also visible.
Of course, like any theft deterrent, given enough time and patience, a determine thief could defeat it, but it will certainly prevent theft in some cases.
This is a simple concept… it prevents the car from being taken out of PARK, so the car can’t be rolled or pushed.
I keep one in my console for whenever I have to leave the car parked.
Unit comes with two keys.
When purchasing this item you may also want to consider part #7230.
Another excellent theft deterrent to help keep your car in your possession.
