without a security device
securing one wheel

there are different types of anti theft devices for trailers

The most popular anti theft device for trailers is the one that wraps round the trailers wheel. They are refereed to by different names including

Wheel clamp being the name mostly used.

There are many wheel clamp brands, most are made in China such as

comparing China made

to

Australian made wheel clamp

Each of the following reviews compare only the basic facts between the China made wheel clamp brand and the Australian made wheel clamp.

why did we design the Australian made wheel clamp

May 2003 we started to design a new security device to replace a padlock and mild steel chain, we initially named it Padlock Protection.

securing a pair of gates

March 2004 we sold the first Padlock Protection.

January 2005 we were surprised how many Padlock Protection we had sold.

This got me thinking there must be other security products with an inferior locking system I could replace with Padlock Protection.

I spent the next 6 months looking at a number of security products.

July 2005 I decided the wheel clamp will be the product to change but realised I could not replace the lock used on all wheel clamps with Padlock Protection.

solution

I had to re-invent a new unique designed wheel clamp.

that is what I did

Based on my research between January to July 2005 all but two wheel clamp brands are made in China.

China has a reputation of making low cost, mass produced products.

There is nothing wrong with a low cost visual deterrent wheel clamp if the replacement value of the towable vehicle is less than $4000.

But if the vehicle replacement value is between $10,000 to $90,000 or more.

you need more than a visual deterrent

August 2005 I started to design a new wheel clamp.

Today July 13, 2024 wheel clamps sold in Australian retail and online shops are made in China and each will only fit a limited number of different size wheels.

The Australian made wheel clamp is specifically designed for all towable and drivable vehicles.

It fits all size wheels without adjusting anything including off road camper trailers with large 4wd wheels and / or coil springs and / or piston suspension.

included with each security option

Both Enforcer and Supreme Australian made wheel clamp are the same accept for the lock, each consists of three parts

1: stainless steel shield
2: bolt cutter proof 10mm diameter high tensile chain
3: lock

1: stainless steel shield

unique stainless steel shield standing in front of a vehicles wheel

what does the stainless steel shield do

It stands in front of the wheel its going to protect.

It covers the wheel nuts and the tyres valve and keeps the included bolt cutter proof 10mm diameter high tensile chain in the correct position via four specifically positioned holes, two at the top and two at the bottom.

bolt cutter proof 10mm diameter high tensile chain wraps around the leaf springs and through the holes in the stainless steel shield then locks at the front

If your towable vehicle has coil springs and / or a piston suspension a similar fitting method is used.

The Enforcer and Supreme Australian made wheel clamp stainless steel shield fits all size wheels from the smallest pop top caravan wheel up to the largest 4wd off road camper trailer wheel and all size wheels between without adjusting anything no matter the make, model or year of the vehicle you want to protect.

2: bolt cutter proof 10mm diameter high tensile chain

After we designed Australian made wheel clamp using a single length of chain we then had to choose the type of chain to use.

We had to consider strength, the weight for use and postage cost, external finish as some vehicles will be left outside in all types of weather conditions.

we chose

10mm diameter high tensile chain, the manufactured name is, grade 70 high tensile chain - bolt cutter proof chain.

specifications

10mm diameter high tensile chain cannot be cut with a bolt cutter no matter how long the bolt cutter is

As you can see in the picture of the Enforcer Australian made wheel clamp below the position of the padlock plus both thicknesses of the 10mm diameter high tensile chain ensures a thief cannot place the cutting blades of a bolt cutter around the padlocks shackle stopping the thief cutting the shackle.

difference between imported wheel clamps and Australian made wheel clamp

We sold our first Australian made wheel clamp in March 2007.

During the next couple of years we were occasionally asked what is the difference between imported wheel clamps and ours.

We explained, after a while we thought it would be easier for purchaser to see the difference.

Imported wheel clamps either have two or three arms only wrapping around the width of the tyre and nothing securing the wheel clamp to the vehicles chassis and each only fit two or a limited number of different size wheels.

Australian made wheel clamp is unique

Australian made wheel clamp is unique, it has no arms wrapping around the wheel instead it uses a single length of bolt cutter proof 10mm diameter high tensile chain

the difference is

high tensile chain
wrapped around the leaf springs and wheel
bolt cutter proof 10mm diameter high tensile chain wrapped around the leaf springs and wheel

Or another part of the chassis if being fitted to a 4wd off road camper trailer with coil springs and / or piston suspension.

10 year Australian manufacturer warranty

Before we sold the first Australian made wheel clamp in March 2007 we, the Australian manufacturer, gave a lot of thought to how long should we guarantee each Australian made wheel clamp.

We knew for a fact the Australian made wheel clamp will last a life time eg. 25, 50 or 75 years maybe longer due to the superior materials used to manufacture them plus no welded parts, no bolts or screws used but we also knew we had to be realistic.

we the manufacturer

Decided to give all purchasers a 10 year manufacturer warranty.

There is no other wheel clamp brand made world wide guaranteed by the manufacturer for 10 years.

in fact

Imported wheel clamp brands do not include a manufacturer warranty.

we are proud to say

since our first sale in March 2007

until today July 13, 2024

we have never had a warranty claim

we are 100% sure we never will

not many companies can state the above fact
