Introducing the LocksOnline Product of the
This week were taking a closer look at the
EMS500SS Euroclamp wheel clamp.
Unlike some wheel clamp products which will
only fit on certain types or sizes of wheel, the Euroclamp will fit almost any
family car, motorcycle, van, trailer or caravan thanks to the clever adjustable
design. Not only that it can be used with steel or alloy wheels, and the tips
of the clamp arms have protective covers on them in order to prevent damage to
your alloys! The arms of the clamp are constructed from 75mm x 6mm steel, with additional reinforcing strips on the inside edges of the arms, finished off with a coating of zinc plating to add to the weather resistance of the product.
In terms of the security of the product,
the lock has been designed to be a high security one, resistant to drilling and
picking, and there are over a million possible key combinations for it. To add
further weight to the security credentials of the clamp, it has a number of
- Sold Secure Gold Approved for use on Cars
- Sold Secure Silver Approved for use on
Caravans and Trailers
- Insurance Approved
- Meets Police Approved Standards – the Secured by Design Scheme
with locking wheel nuts or bolts to validate Sold Secure status
Fitting the clamp to your vehicle, trailer,
caravan or motorbike is simple and straightforward. Position the inner arm of
the clamp behind the wheel and hook it into the rim, position the outer arm against
the outer face of the wheel and slide the two arms together ensuring that the
pointed tip of the outer arm fits into a recess or hole in the wheel. Then
simply push the lock into the nearest hole on the connecting sleeve (theres 10
to choose from to suit the width of the wheel you are clamping).
Releasing it is equally straightforward –
simply insert the key, turn a ½ turn and pull on the key to release the lock
and allow the arms to be slid apart.
This clamp really is a versatile product.
Perhaps youre off on a caravan holiday and would like to add some extra security
whilst youre out and about off site, or youve got a trailer parked up that
you wish to secure until youve loaded it to move. It may be that you want the
extra piece of mind of securing your car or motorbike when parking in an
unfamiliar area. Whatever the reason, this wheel clamp will provide additional
security quickly and effectively, and without taking up a lot of room.
