The makers of The Club are known for their theft-deterring steering-wheel-locking bars. However the company also produced an external locking device that prevents thieves from stealing your car, trailer, or all-terrain vehicle. The Tire Claw XL uses the same principle as those larger ‘boots’ that bylaw enforcement agencies use to immobilize vehicles, only on a somewhat smaller scale. The manufacturer claims the device is easy to install and fits any wheel width up to 12 inches. It also comes with three laser-encrypted keys that cannot be copied. The product retails for $100 plus $27 for the optional lug-nut protector. Order from the manufacturer at
