    Hello All,

    I need to upgrade the security on my Landy. What is the best visible security measure, or is there one?

    Thanks

    John...

    i have a disklok, battery kill switch, usually leave transfer box and overdrive in neutral. most of those will scupper the opportunist but organised crime will just lift the vehicle, so.... ??

    we are living on borrowed time i guess

    There's only so much effort a thief will go to to nick a series Landy. I don't even lock mine. To be honest, there is a bit of a knack to start it anyway and if you don't get it right first time, it takes ages to get it going.

    Battery isolator, lockable bonnet and fuel shutoff (just a clip on the "pull to stop" knob I have on the DPA pump).

    You could always take the rotor arm off, it's a bit of a faff but so is fitting pedal locks and decent disk locks.

    Security is something I will be looking into fitting as the bodywork goes back on drilling holes to fit stuff in out of sight places aswell as more visible stuff like the disc lock and maybe a pedal lock thingy aswell, I have also seen a h/brake lever lock aswell somewhere which I mite fit at some point

    Security? Deep in the countryside, down an access track, then down a green lane and behind a field gate., with standard locks does for me.

    Unless its a minter ther aint a huge market in pro thievery. More down to the local scrotes wanting a spin round a field. Deter them and you probably wont have a problem. Get a flashing red dash light and a disklock. Possibly make the doors dead lock so they have to get in and out through a window.

    Or get a disco/rangie, then you have no end of flashing lights on the dash and everything is dead not just the locks.

    Yup. It'd take some brass neck and almost impossible to steal without disturbing .
