This product feels like a huge liability.

Theft-deterrent system, or remote traffic-hazard creator?


Won’t stop you from just ripping off the whole valve stem or slashing the tires, then you have an even worse problem than deflated tires.

Thieves will happily steal the wheels and tires as well.

Lock your doors and don’t leave valuables in sight. Free and effective. Even if this device had a much better lock, it’s a dumb idea.

Last time I was getting into lock picking, I got the impression that raking is supposed to be easier than picking, but I’ve never been able to actually get a rake to work, but picking I got to work on a transparent practice lock within a couple of days…

That’s funny that he was able to rake it so fast
