First post here, picked up a T6 the other day. The spare wheel is very vulnerable, I'd like to fit a locking bolt that can't be removed with molgrips
There was one available, with a shroud, in the forum shop but that's now gone. There is another but it's a pretty big, ugly red thing...
So... I'm looking to protect the spare wheel.... I've read a fair few posts on here and seem to have come to the conclusion that the 'spare safe' locking system is considered a decent deterrent and will slow the feral youth of today down....
Probably a bit more expensive compared to other...

As you are all aware it's a very common problem to have these wheels stolen so here's a quick and cheap solution to stop this from happening.
