Gear Lock Systems

The Main Advantages of Gear Lock Systems

Safety and security is a major concern for motorists in South Africa. Too many drivers have been caught out by the “it will never happen to me” outlook and have suffered the consequences. If you don’t have security measures in place to protect your vehicle from theft, you have a high chance of your vehicle being a hot target for opportunists. Gear lock systems are one of the most basic vehicle security features and they have certainly stood the test of time.

The concept of a gear lock is to ensure that the vehicle cannot be put into gear, or a drivable gear which essentially renders the vehicle immobile. The locks are usually designed to be bulky and highly visible which means criminals would need to put in extra effort to remove such a lock without being noticed. It goes without saying that while a gear lock is effective in locking the vehicles gears it also acts as an efficient deterrent to criminals.

The main advantages of investing in a gear lock system for your car are as follows:

  • Gear lock systems are mechanical which means that there is no need to worry about electronic components or potential system failure.
  • The systems are extremely easy to operate and don’t take up to much space when not in use.
  • The durable materials used to manufacture a gear lock are not easily cut or broken.
  • The locks are fitted with tamper proof nuts for added protection.
  • The locks offer a maintenance free mechanism and have keys that cannot be duplicated.
  • Most gear locks come with a warranty for added peace of mind.
