Your car is likely one of your most expensive possessions and it makes sense to want to keep it safe. By default, all modern cars are fitted with an alarm system, but car thieves are also capable of disabling even the latest car alarm systems. Therefore, it is a good idea to have backup security, such as a car steering lock.
Although a car steering lock won’t keep a determined thief away, a physical lock on your steering wheel is a strong visual deterrent to any potential car theft. Steering locks are also fairly cheap. Not sure where to look? Here are some of the best steering locks available for purchase on the Malaysian market.
