    I doubt it's the type you mean but many on here are huge fans of the Disklok steering wheel clamp...

    Biggest problem with a lot of this kit is keys are available from all DIY Outlets.

    This video is a bit old but gives you an idea whats available. Its concerned with Land Rover thefts so is relevant. Skim through the video and they try a three products. They all come off with the key from the DIY Outlet.

    A wheel clamp will inconvenience you far more than any thief. I suggest you find a more secure, less intrusive form of security.
    Start by defining what you are securing against, then who you are deterring, at what time, and then what you want the outcome to be.
    For example,
    Are you worried about the van being stolen / vandalised / broken into / trapped inside?
    Do you want to stop casual passers-by, amateur thieves or professional thieves?
    Is it when you are wildcamping, on a site, parked when you are away, when en route, or when the van is out of use?
    Do you want to deter attempts, prevent theft or to limit damage? Do you want to facilitate recovery?

    Then think about which measures will work and which will prove to be too much hassle each time. And consider which will be counterproductive by making it obvious that the van is unoccupied (such as external security locks and wheel clamps)

    Yes as posted by "Hairydog" the DIY key will open given time.
    But
    1 It is a visible deterrent
    2 Easy to fit

    Only protects against theft of the vehicle so have an alarm as well !

    An issue with road wheel clamps is that motorhome wheels and tyres are big so are the limited range available for this type of vehicle. Consider weight as well. And as already suggested its use does indicate the vehicle may be unattended.

    We use the steering wheel disklok combined with an alarm which we can arm at night when in the vehicle to cover the doors, bonnet and garage but with the internal motion detection disabled. We also have separate window alarms fitted so any attempt to open a window would be heard from a very long distance away!

    If you have a swivelling drivers seat, if you swivel it and then using a padlock and chain to stop it swivelling back, that will stop anyone being able to drive away without a lot of hassle.
