Chaining Wheels Together Is A Brutally Effective Answer To Car Theft

Okay, so you have to ignore the fact that the chains will do a whole load of damage to your car, but at least they should stop anyone stealing it...

Picture the scene: you own a desirable car and you don’t want it to get stolen. Of course you don’t. But you also want to park illegally and get away with it, so how do you make your car immune to the charms of both thieves and tow trucks?

Naturally, we turn to Mother Russia and YouTube channel Garage 54 for an answer. Apparently Russians have started actually chaining their cars to lamp posts, running heavy metal links between immovable roadside furniture and their cars’ door handles, pillars, wheels or even the steering wheel in an attempt to put tow truck drivers off.

Chaining Wheels Together Is A Brutally Effective Answer To Car Theft

The channel’s latest video explores these weird new trends and finds them all totally useless if you’d like to prevent the car being stolen. They all just damage the car itself, pulling bits off as easily as if they were never even fixed on at all.

But, not to be defeated, our intrepid host also tries chaining the almost-dead test car’s steel wheels to each other; first the rear wheels together and then a front to the rear one on the same side. Both are pretty successful, especially the front-to-rear link. Just try to ignore all the damage it will do to your car, and hope the tow truck company doesn’t bring a crane.

Or, you can hire a whole F1 pit crew team to unscrew the wheels every time you park the car. No damage with protection.

in my country you can left your at the parking lot and someone will do it for you whitout even asking.
the problem is that they take the wheels as payment for the job…

some of them even mastered the art of balancing the car between two jacks, one at each side. Unluckily i didn’t found any picture of that.

Step 1: unbolt one of the chained wheels, bolt spare tire onto vacant hub
Step 2: have friend carry chained wheel while you drive a block or two to where you can discreetly make further arrangements (or, if stealing a Lada in Russia, just steal a wheel and tire from the next one you see on the street)
Step 3: profit?
