However, the club on the break may be better per Bee above. Bolo, SPD said they cut them off the stearing wheel all the time, and are therefore useless.

I got mine at key shop on California Ave across from big Safeway. Also, when parking on street, turn wheels so not straight & put on the car's brake lock. These things make it harder for car to be stolen....saw in blog or a police bulletin a while back. Re plants, my family one year planted bushes in yard - took the day to do. We got up next morning and they were all gone. Wondering why they are stealing plants now - are they selling them? We've had some holes left in the yard over the last year & did not know what was going on. Several comments – re club, try getting the brake lock…it fits over the brake so they cannot be used.

If you come across abandon cars, use "Find It, Fix It" and the city should take care of it. If it is, in fact, stolen then I'm sure they have the necessary tools to make sure that information is gathered when they tow it away.
