With all the news about an increase in the theft of cars due to thieves exploiting keyless systems, do any other forum members have a visible deterrent such as a steering wheel lock? If so I wondered what types fit the C-HR because while "Stoplock" gets good reviews, according to it's website, none of the Stoplock models fit the C-HR!

And a secondary question, have any forum members actually had their C-HR stolen through their keyless system?

I still think the best hardware to prevent theft is a Bearlock. That locks your gearstick mechanical and solid in P .
Its no mobile clamp but a build-in system so you only see a lock hole. See : http://bear-lock.co.uk/

In order for thieves to break into a keyless car, the signal from the key must be reflected and amplified. If the key is stored in a tin can, the signal cannot be captured because the tin can is practically a Faraday cage.
I tried this, but when I tested it by walking up to the car with the keys in a tin in my pocket I Could still unlock the car wirelessly. If in doubt test your own tin with the keys in it , or even easier turn the signal off as in my previous post
I tested this too few weeks ago. When I put my jar against the car window, the door opened. But then, a thief should also come into my house with his reflector. For the most part, I thought that the keys would always be in the same place and not have to be searched around the house. Maybe my jar was better. :roll:

This is what I use (painted in the same colour as my walls to keep my wife happy). Works just fine, easy and cleans the mess of keys against the wall.
