Video Transcript for The Club Tire Claw Wheel Lock with Lug Nut Protector Plate Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Tire Claw XL with the lug nut protector plate. This is part number WI491-491LNP. These are designed to work together. To start with, you've got your XL Tire Claw, vinyl-dipped here on the ends. That's going to protect our rim from scratches, dents or dings. We've got a lock core that's protected from the elements with a cap.

It accepts a laser-cut key. This cannot be duplicated. We're going to have great lock. We won't have to worry about it being it picked or have any issues like that. The keys will come out there. We also have the lug nut protector plate.

This is designed using a 5mm layer of aluminum on top, a 4mm layer of steel on the bottom. They bond those two together to give us a nice sturdy protection plate. The rear has the foam padding on it. When that goes up against the side of our tire, we're not going to have to worry about scratching or damage from this product, either. Typically, this would be placed on the Claw, just like that. Let me open it up so you can see.

Right here you can see that we've got a small threaded hole. To attach the plate to the Claw, we do need to drill a hole and tap it out to accept our screw. You will want to keep that in mind. I'm not going to install it on the Claw today. I don't want to drill a hole in somebody else's in case they decide they want it. We've opened our Claw up.

We'll bring it around our tire. Then it's just a matter of closing it. Now you can imagine our lug nut protector plate would be up right up against our lug nuts. That's going to protect anybody from removing those and removing the wheel completely. This gives us a highly visible way of keeping our vehicle from rolling, so it's going to prevent theft on, whether it's your vehicle, your trailer, your ATV, your boat, heck, even a golf cart. This Tire Claw XL is designed to accommodate up to a 12-inch wheel. The plate dimension is 2 1/4 inches long by 9 1/2 inches wide at its widest point. Now that we've seen how it looks, what it's made of and how it goes on our vehicle, that will complete today's look at the Club Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock with lug nut protector plate, part number WI491-491LNP. Also available is just the Tire Claw XL, part number WI491, or just the lug nut protector, part number 491LNP, if you've already got your Tire Claw XL at home. .

Doesn't fit on the wheel of my trailer it's useless 465451



- WI491-491LNP
by:

I bought the Club wheel lock for my trailer. The fork to the rear of the tire does not properly clear the brake disk assembly, therefore the Club unit mounts crooked. This makes it impossible to use the lug nut plate. I am resigned to using just the Club attachment. 63144



- WI491-491LNP
by:

I have two complaints about this product. 1) The plate which covers up the lug nuts does not come ready to assemble. A 6 mm hole must be drilled into the the claw. Lame. If you are that handy with tools, save yourself some money by cutting and drilling your own flat plate--that is all it is. 2) This lock comes with three keys and it is not possible to get extras. I am notorious for losing keys so I called Club to get extras--they said they didn't have any--I'd have to get them from a lock smith. And the two locksmiths I talked to said I'd have to get them from the company. 11426



- WI491-491LNP

The claw is well made. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the plate covering the lug nuts is too small to be effective and will have to be modified. Additionally, the shape of "fingers" needs to be improved as it is currently designed they do not fit between the rim and brake drum of a standard 15" wheel/10" drum combination. As another line of defense against thieves it serves it's intended purpose. If nothing else, it looks the part. 249076

the tire claw seem to work good, not to keen on the the the protector plate goes on. screws are not self treading. maybe the holes could be pre-drilled. 36076

- WI491-491LNP
by:

Installing the lug nut plate was not nice, they sent the screw that attaches the plate to the club arm, and instructions simply say to drill a 6 mm hole in the arm, but doesn't say anything about tapping the hole for the screw to screw in. If i wasn't mechanically adept and already knew how to do these sort of things, I would be SOL. Otherwise, I like the device. Richard 105819

Comments

Unfortunately as youve found, locks arent infallible. If a thief is determined enough, just about any lock can be defeated given enough time and the right equipment. The idea of using locks such as this one is to provide a deterrent. The hope is that the potential thief will see the highly visible nature of the lock and move on to something that will be easier to steal.

Review from a similar Winner International Tire Claw XL in Wheel Locks


Product works good on trailer but not so well on motorcycle with large rear tire and a low tire wall. My bike tire is well (9inches) under the products max usage size but because of the tire wall low height this unit can be slid off tire and rim by simply pushing to the side and slipping it around rim and tire... Also I bought two and would have liked them both keyed a like but the charge for such a simple task was outrages. To sum it up I'm Ok with product... 90524

Review from a similar Winner International Tire Claw XL in Wheel Locks


No one has stolen our trailer which is a plus. However, it doesn't fit as tight as I would like. It seems to be more of a visible deterrent than one that couldn't be removed with a crowbar. I think this would be a 5 star product if it was more adjustable. It is well made. 595461

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Ford Edge and Wheel Chock Lock and for Aluma Trailer MC10 Trailer
  • For your wheel chock lock for your 13 inch trailer wheel, you have a few different options. You can use the Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490, the CLUB Tire Claw XL - Wheel Lock # WI491 or the Club Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock with Lug Nut Protector Plate # WI491-491LNP. For your spare tire mount, I recommend the # FHDSTC0101 for the tongue of your trailer or the # FETCHL0700 which includes a lock.

  • Will the Lug Nut Protector Plate # 491LNP Fit the Stallion Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020
  • I went out to the warehouse and found that the Lug Nut Protector Plate # 491LNP did fit the claw of the Stallion Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020 but I am not sure if it fit far enough for a wheel. The claws on the Stallion lock have a wedge shape whereas the The CLUB Tire Claw XL # WI491, that the plate is designed to fit, has straight claws. I recommend using the plate on the CLUB Tire Claw XL as opposed to the Stallion Wheel Lock because of this. They actually come together as part...

  • Can Trailer Wheel Locks be Easily Defeated
  • I can pass along your lock concerns to the manufacturers. Any lock can be defeated given enough time and persistence. A wheel lock such as # RA-25 is a deterrent, as all locks are. If a thief wants that trailer bad enough, they'll find a way. Thieves have a tendency to pick the low-hanging fruit; that is to say that the mere presence of a lock is likely to cause a would-be thief to move on to an easier target. Things that take time like removing a tire from a trailer are not worth the...

  • Recommended Wheel Lock for Airstream Basecamp Travel Trailer
  • Our most popular wheel lock is the Club Tire Claw XL # WI491-491LNP. It not only clamps around the wheel to keep it from rolling it also covers the lug nuts to help keep a would-be thief from removing the wheel altogether. It will fit tires up to 12 inches wide so it will work just fine on your Basecamp. If you'd like more than one wheel lock, like for your vehicle, you can get multiple Tire Claws that use the same key using # WI491KA-491LNP.

  • Wheel Lock that Also Blocks Access to Lug Nuts
  • The Wheel Club # WI490 isn't going to make it easy to access the lug nuts but no, there isn't an adapter that complete covers them. For that I recommend a different version, # WI491-491LNP. I have linked a video review of it for you.

  • Can the Club Tire Claw XL # WI491-491LNP be Cut Through
  • The The Club Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock with Lug Nut Protector Plate # WI491-491LNP, just like any other lock for any device, is more of a theft deterrent than a sure-fire way to keep someone from stealing your vehicle or getting at your wheels. Given enough time and the right equipment any lock can be beaten. Because of this (and to avoid would-be thieves from researching how much time they need) there are no "cut times" for the Club Tire Claw XL. If you don't like the design of this wheel...

  • Preventing Theft of 5th Wheel Trailer Using Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter
  • What I would do with the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 is loosen the set screw that holds the inner coupler tube in, remove the coupler, and store it in a locked vehicle or other location. If the coupler part isn't there no one could come along and steal the trailer! Traditional gooseneck coupler locks won't work on this adapter so if you want to go with a more traditional method than what is described above I recommend the Super Grip chock #...

  • Availability of a Lug Nut Protector Plate for The Club Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock # WI491
  • We do have the lug nut protector plate available for the Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock. You will need part # 491LNP. You will need to drill into the inside of the outer arm on the Tire Claw. The plate comes with mounting hardware. The back has a foam covering to protect the rims. Current pricing is available on the product page.

  • Why Is The Lug Nut Plate Not Already Attached To The Unit Or At Least Pre-drilled?
  • The Club Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock with Lug Nut Protector Plate # WI491-491LNP does not have the hole drilled and tapped because it is a universal fit. If the plate were already mounted in place it would limit the fit on certain tires. The plate is not required to be screwed into position in most cases as the location of the claw and the plate on the tire would prevent removing it or repositioning it. I've attached some videos of the installation for you.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Lock Recommendation
  • Based on your style of gooseneck coupler the only effective lock style I can recommend for you would be a wheel lock. For that I would recommend the # WI491-491LNP. This covers the lug nuts as well as locks the wheel so not only will the wheel be prevented from turning a thief wouldn't be able to remove the wheel either. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Lock Recommendation for Trailer with Auto Locking Gooseneck Coupler

This covers the lug nuts as well as locks the wheel so not only will the wheel be prevented from turning a thief wouldn't be able to remove the wheel either.

  • You will not have to do any drilling on your 2001 Ford Taurus to use the Club Tire Claw XL, # WI491-491LNP. The drilling mentioned is to attach that triangle-shaped plate to the claw arm. Otherwise without the plate, you would basically have Tire Claw, # WI491. In either case they clamp around the tire. The one with the plate protects the lug nuts.
