New securement products designed to reduce trailer, cargo theft

The Club has introduced two products to its vehicle securement product line: the Tire Claw XL and The Wheel Club.

The Club says its Tire Claw XL fits tires up to 12 in. wide. It’s self-locking making it easy to use, and is coated in black vinyl to protect a wheel’s rim from being damaged. A key is required only to unlock the unit. The Tire Claw XL works by locking around the tire of the vehicle, making it extremely difficult to move. If a thief can’t move the trailer, chances are they can’t steal it, the company says. This makes it an ideal deterrent for recreation and industrial trailers, ATV’s, boat trailers, and motor home trailers.

The Wheel Club fits tires up to 28 in. in diameter. It installs in seconds and uses a weather resistant galvanized steel to make it tough to defeat. Both products come in a bright red color to add to the high visibility deterrence factor, the company says.

“We specialize in mechanical products when it comes to security,” says Jerry Trontel, president of the makers of The Club line of products, Winner International. “We all need to protect our property, and that certainly includes our trailers. The disruption of your life, work or personal, is additional stress on top of all the costs that come along with being the victim of theft. A product that is simple to use is more likely to be used.

“All of our ‘The Club’ products are designed to be easy to use, and tough to defeat. With these two products, there is no alarm involved so the user is not depending on someone else to intervene if an alarm goes off. It comes in two sizes to meet your needs. We prefer simple, mechanical security. Sometimes that’s all you need to have a highly effective theft deterrent.”
