Wheel clamps are available in a variety of sizes to suit different vehicles and also have different levels of security rating. The first thing you need to know when buying a wheel clamp is the size of your tyre, this is key to choosing a model that will fit your car, caravan, trailer, van, motorhome or motorcycle.
If you own a caravan or motorhome most insurance companies will ask that you have both a clamp and a hitch lock to secure it. Although there are not many statistics on caravan theft what we do know is that when one is stolen it is not often recovered.
Choosing a caravan wheel clamp can be tricky and depends on the Sold Secure rating required by your insurance company, please feel free to call us for further assistance. In addition to a clamp for your caravan we can also offer a hitching post to secure it further.
Trailers also need protecting from being stolen to cover you from theft you will generally need a separate insurance policy to that of your car or van insurance. Again insurers have a requirement for you to fit an approved security device such as a specific trailer wheel clamp and or a hitch lock. Please check with your broker for more details.
Likewise motorhomes also come under threat from being stolen despite the size of them being larger than other vehicles. In most cases a motorhome wheel clamp is not essential for insurance but does give added peace of mind that you have protected it as much as possible. It is normal practice for a high specification immobiliser to be required in order for you to be covered.
Of the products you see in this section of our website most will have been tested by Sold Secure which is a British organisation owned by the Master Locksmiths Association. When testing is carried out the tools used to attack the wheel clamps are those that a typical thief would carry. The different ratings from Sold Secure are Silver or Gold.
Wheel clamps for motorhomes provide excellent security for your motorhome when on holiday and at home as well. Wheel clamps for caravans provide equally good security. Some caravan wheel clamps and locks are insurance approved.
It’s a good idea to use a wheel clamp for trailer as well to prevent that from being taken unlawfully. As it can be equally important to buy a car wheel clamp or motorcycle wheel clamp to protect your price and joy.
When choosing a wheel clamp it is important to get the right one for the job. Wheel clamps come in a variety of shapes and sizes, designed for cars, caravans, motorhomes and trailers and differing levels of security.
