Cop-lock is a new vehicle anti theft device. Invented and internationally patented by retired Victorian police sergeant Bob Lycoudis. Cop-Lock is an effective, practical and affordable cure against the car theft epidemic. It will ensure that your car stays where you left it.
The unique steel boot fits over and surrounds the brake or clutch pedal and also secures the pedal arm. A self-locking shaft is engaged to the floor of the vehicle securing the boot and stopping the pedal from being depressed. As a result the effective use of the brakes and or the transmission is stopped. In addition some vehicles cannot be started unless the brake or clutch pedal is depressed.
Cop-lock attaches to one of the strongest parts of the vehicle - unlike the steering wheel, which is designed to bend on impact as it is made of foam and soft metal. A thief can easily cut a steering wheel in seconds using a bolt cutter or hacksaw and remove the device attached. (See video)
Many electronic anti theft devices are expensive, some can be foiled by criminals and can malfunction. It has been independently tested by Hand Brake Turn an organisation sponsored by industry, government and police, whose staff are experienced in the ways that thieves steal vehicles.
