Video Transcript for Master Lock Vehicle Locks - Steering Wheel Lock - 256DAT Review

Today we are going to cover part number 256DAT from Master Lock. This is their Pedal to Wheel Vehicle Lock. Now, this is the type of lock that is kind of a cousin to the steering wheel lock, except that it goes between your steering wheel and whatever pedal you can use. It is pretty easy to use. One end goes around the steering wheel itself and the other end goes around whatever pedal you can use. It is simple to use. There is a key lock right here. You turn it one half-turn to unlock it, and it comes apart. Put it on the brake pedal, one end on the steering wheel, put it back together as tight as you can get it, lock it up, take the key out, and it is locked together and cannot go anywhere. We will go ahead and install it in a vehicle to give you a better idea of how it works.

We will start off with the brake pedal first and then go around the steering wheel and pull it as tight as you can. Then use your key to lock it into place. Nobody can steer or use the brake. And that covers our review of part number 256DAT from Master Lock, the Pedal to Wheel Vehicle Lock.

Shipping was quick, came just as described. Very impressed...the only tiny problem I had was that one of the keys broke when I was trying to lock it...but there's an extra key so it really isn't a big deal :-) very satisfied customer!

Works as described and ordered. This product was recommended by etrailer staff after the initial product I ordered was not available until the end of April, and I needed it by mid April. Upon receiving my order they called and advised me of this info, and offered this product which is perfect for my needs, and arrived within a few days of ordering. I have ordered from this company before, and every product has met or exceeded my expectations.

Ask the Experts about this Master Lock Vehicle Locks

  • Can Master Lock 256DAT Pedal to Wheel Lock Be Used on 2007 Jeep Wrangler While Flat Towing
    If you were leaving the vehicle unattended overnight, that would be acceptable but you wouldn't want to use a lock such as this when flat towing, as the supplemental braking system wouldn't be able to actuate the brake pedal with that lock in place.

  • Steering Wheel Lock Recommendations
    The Pedal to Wheel Vehicle Lock by Master Lock # 256DAT that you referenced has a maximum distance of 30 inches. If your steering wheel has a tilting feature and you might be able to lower it further to get it to fit the range of this lock. Otherwise you would need to go with a steering wheel lock more like the Titanium High Security Vehicle Steering Wheel Lock # 263DAT.

  • Should Steering Wheel be Unlocked or Locked While Flat Towing
    Actually most vehicles have a steering wheel lock built into the steering column to prevent the wheel from turning when the key is off. Also, typically when a vehicle is being flat-towed you actually want the steering wheel to be unlocked so that that vehicle tracks behind the tow vehicle properly. I attached an FAQ article on flat towing that you should find helpful as well.

  • Will the Master Lock Pedal to Wheel Vehicle Lock work on a Large Truck
    I spoke with my contact at Master Lock and found that the Pedal to Wheel Vehicle Lock, # 256DAT, measures 30 inches from inside hook to inside hook when fully extended. If the brake pedal in your rig is more than 30 inches away from the steering wheel, then this lock will not work. I have attached a photo showing this measurement. Depending on the inner diameter of your steering wheel, you could look into a steering wheel lock like the Titanium High Security Steering Wheel Lock,...

  • What Ignition Position And Transmission Position For 1999 Chevy Venture To Flat Tow?
    According to your owners manual, your 1999 Chevy Venture needs to have the transaxle in Neutral, the parking brake released, the ignition key in OFF position and steering wheel clamped in straight ahead position , with a clamping device designed for towing service. Do not use the vehicle's steering column lock for this. (page 5-9 of Owner's Manual) For that clamp, I recommend the Pedal to Wheel Vehicle Lock by Master Lock # 256DAT.

  • Fit of Master Lock # 256DAT Brake Pedal to Steering Wheel Lock on 2015 Winnebago Brave
    As long as you have an unobstructed path from the lower rim of the steering wheel to the arm of the brake pedal that's 30 inches or less, the Master Lock # 256DAT Pedal To Wheel Lock will work great on your 2015 Winnebago Brave.

  • Can Pedal to Wheel Vehicle Lock # 256DAT Be Used on Larger Towing Vehicles
    Masterlock Pedal to Wheel lock # 256DAT does not have any vehicle specific information, but it will work on any vehicle whose steering wheel and brake pedal setup will fit into the span of the lock. As long as the distance from steering wheel to pedal is 30 inches or less, and the steering wheel is not larger than 13-1/2 inches in diameter, the # 256DAT lock should work well for your application.

  • Towing a 1990 Mazda Miata MX-5 on a Tow Dolly
    Dolly towing with front wheels off the ground is not recommended by the manufacturer as the bearings could cease up over long distances because of the lack of splash lubricant. It is definitely recommended to disconnect the drive shaft if you will be towing it like that. You can load the vehicle rear tires on the dolly. That will solve the axle issue, however you will want to leave the steering unlocked so the key in the ignition and then use the Pedal to Wheel Vehicle Lock by Master...

  • Preparation Steps to Dolly Tow 2010 Chevrolet Impala with Front-Wheel-Drive
    I checked the online owner's manual for the 2010 Chevrolet Impala and on page 5-27 and 5-28 the preparation process to tow this car on a dolly like the Roadmaster # RM-2000-1 is outlined.

  • Recommendations For Dolly Towing A 2002 Chevy Tracker ZR2 4X4
    You can tow your 2002 Chevy Tracker ZR2 4x4 with a tow dolly. I recommend the Roadmaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes - 4,250 lbs # RM-2050-1. You will need to tow the vehicle from the rear wheels and make sure your ignition key is in the on position, your transmission is in park with the parking brake on, and the transfer case is in neutral. Make sure the 4WD light on your dash is turned off. Leave the key in that ACC position to keep the steering wheel unlocked. Make sure the front...
