Vehicle Clamps, Anchors & Locks
Vehicle clamps, anchors, and locks are used to secure vehicles to prevent unauthorised removal and theft. There are two primary methods: removable parking posts anchored into the ground and wheel clamps. The parking posts are made from heavy duty steel tubing and kept in the engaged position by robust padlocks. Wheel clamps may be fitted to one or several wheels of a vehicle and prevent wheel rotation or wheel removal. Motorcycles are secured using various ground or wall anchors, heavy duty chains, and padlocks. Caravans and trailers can be secured using any of the above means or using devices to prevent coupling or uncoupling from a vehicle.

Autolock has a ram resistant parking post with a 100 mm square tube installed inside a robust tube, whereas Oxford has several ground anchors for motorcycles made from hardened steel designed to accept chains or steel cables. They also offer the Oxford Boss specialised alarm lock, which is a secure padlock fitted with a high pitched alarm that sounds if an attempt is made to open or remove the lock without the key.
