This is being marketed as an alternative to all those steering wheel locks, and if you ask me, it has good chances selling quite a bit better than them, if only for the novelty factor. I mean, put yourself in the place of a would-be thief… would you want to try and rob a car with a boot on it?

Of course, that’s not where the goodness ends. What if you’re a cop? “Hey, this car is parked illegally, and I’m itching to write a ticket… but the dude’s already got a boot… Hmm… better leave him alone them.”

Or, you can be a pity whore and get all your friends to feel sorry for you for a good five minutes of exhilarating back-patting and empathetic shakes of the head.

Or… well, geez folks, this thing’s got endless possibilities, the last of which is to actually prevent your car from being stolen. There’s a whole bunch of worse ways to spend $140, believe me. Where? Right here. Story VIA BookOfJoe.


  1. Concerns:

    1. Looking at its size, it seems more inconvenient to store while not in use, as compared to a steering wheel lock.

    2. You’ll get your hands dirty taking it off/on.

    3. What happens if you forget to take it off?

  2. I was thinking the same thing…what if u forget to take it off? Hell to pay! Or if u were in a rush for some reason? good fricken luck.

    And I assume it just uses a key…well pick the lock?

    But my biggest concern is: what if someone buys it and puts it on your car because of whatever reason (they hate you?) or better yet…on a cop car? 😀 hehehe

    ok i will say no more, u get my drift
