Car Security Buying Guide | Halfords UK


Cars are increasingly becoming smarter
than ever however the more technology we put in
our cars the more attractive they become to potential thieves. Therefore, it’s so
important that you take some extra steps to keep your car safe. Here are some top
tips: one of the most obvious but essential mechanisms for security is the
car alarm, which as soon as someone tries to break into your car will send out a
clear striking noise grabbing your attention. You can decide to upgrade
these alarms with a tracking device, helping locate your car if it does
happen to be stolen. Another device that is highly successful at deterring
thieves is this steering wheel lock. With its secure mechanism hooking across your
wheel, many of these models are available in a bright yellow colour, whilst others
are equipped a reflective light which will scare off anyone. At Halfords we
also stock a range of Disklocks, which completely cover your car wheel and
can’t be removed without a key. They are also very bold and act as excellent
deterrents. The variety of sizes means that every car wheel can have one of
these. To ensure your vehicle is exactly where you left it, use a wheel clamp. Like
the previous locks, these can come in an unmissable, bright yellow colour, acting
as a highly visible deterrent for any criminal behavior. Many modern cars now
come with automatic locks which provides us with added convenience and ease but
this convenience also allows thieves to easily tap into your key fob signal and
access your car. At Halfords you can invest in an anti-theft car wallet that
protects your key fob signal from being tampered with and reduces the risk of
your car or valuables being stolen. Another great way to deter thieves is an
immobiliser, which disables your car if it is started without a key. It inhibits
the processes that allow your car to move. If your car is older than 1988 then
this device won’t have been automatically fitted, so you should
consider having one installed and as a bonus it can help reduce your insurance
premium. If you want any more advice, then pop into your local Halfords branch and
a team member will be more than happy to help. You can also see our range of car
security online.
