Spare Wheel Anti-theft Protection Disc - Heavy Duty Steel for Land Rover Discovery 5
Spare Wheel Anti-Theft Protection Plate
in Heavy Duty Steel (type 2)
for Land Rover Discovery 5
You may (or may not!) be aware that the Discovery 5 has suffered from a widespread problem of spare wheel thefts.
The spare wheel is carried underneath the car and secured in place with a cable and winch.
Thieves simply cut the cable accessed through the wheel spokes and release the valuable wheel and tyre - easy pickings!
This anti-theft protection plate nests inside the spare wheel and blocks that access to the winch cable.
It's worth checking under your car to see if your wheel is there as you wouldn't necessarily realise it's missing until you need it!
Land Rover did release a revised winch with an anti-theft sleeve but this is still far from an ideal solution.
This plate will block access to the cable and help prevent it being cut.
This plate is made from heavy duty steel and finished in Black.
We have 2 versions of spare wheel guard available :-
Type 1 - Our own design made from stainless steel 2mm thick - see item SWG500.
Type 2 - Britpart version made from mild steel plate 4mm thick - this is the item for sale in this listing
If your wheel is stolen you'd also need buy a new winch too as the thieves cut the cable!
This is a good quality item from a leading aftermarket supplier.
This is not a genuine Land Rover item
