Wheel Clamp

Can anyone recommend a good wheel clamp? We are looking at a Milenco original C14 but I'm sure many of the helpful friendly folk on here could advise us!

Hi Linda and John.

You may be dictated to by your insurance company but if you are free to choose then although the heavyweights do a better job, they can be a nuisance to drag around with you when you're touring.
We use on of these:-

They are reasonably priced, easy to fit and fairly easy to stow. Please note that the central circular bit is large enough to cover the wheel nuts. Some on the market are not so the wheel and lock can be removed together.
This particular clamp has lasted us for four years now.

By the way, we rarely see caravans in France with wheel clamps and they are quite amused at us when we fit ours.

We 'inherited' one of these http://www.towsure.com/product/Nemesis_S...van_Wheel_Clamp with Esmerelda and kept it when we sold her.

I've only recently fitted it to Amber and rarely used it on the Eriba. It's darned heavy and blooming awkward to fit. So it never goes away with us and whenever I fit it my blood pressure rockets.

We've got one of these.

It's brilliant. Incredibly quick and simple to fit and remove.

I use the "crab claw" type, what ever you go for remember weight and storage.
You should have an approved hitchlock anyway and that is often all an insurance
company ask for (but do check)

I can't say I've seen too many (if any) motorhomes with anti-theft wheel clamps fitted, but Milenco seem to think there's a market

'This Insurance approved Wheelclamp fits all Caravan and European Motorhome'

Saying that fitting a Nemesis is,"blooming awkward to fit',..is being very kind to the product.
I leave the keys in mine as no tea-leaf in his right mind would bother trying to get one off, even with the keys!.

We have one of these and to be honest I do see people struggling and often get asked how I attach it so quickly / easily, my secret is i detach the round wheel cover part, i put the claws around the tyre and into the wheel recess, then before tightening fully i relocate the wheel cover and tighten both allen screws fully, insert the barrel lock and secure.

Mine is left attached to the van all year round outside and is exposed to all weather's, so I always lightly grease both Allen screws and attachment points, other than than, it gets left alone.

Yep it is heavy, but I travel light (without a full jacuzzi) and I put it in a wheel cover, and bag before we move, it then travels bein the passenger seat Iin the rear footwear.

Nothing stops a determined thief, as most of us know it just makes them look elsewhere!

Allen screws? Allen screws??

Hold the phone!

What allen screws?

Surely if there's allen screws holding the wheel cover on (too cold outside to check) it compromises the security?

Mine came with 2 Allen screws / bolts (I may have thrown you there, unintentionally) one is used to do up the wheel clamp, the other to attach the wheel cover, both are then hidden by the barrel lock.

I've just washed and dried the car and caravan before waxing both later, just come in for a warm! I'll try and take a picture later for you, I could do a video BUT that would compromise my disguise lol
