This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Whether you have to park your vehicle on an extremely steep slope or need to guard against theft, a tire boot or clamp can be exceptionally handy. Most are made of steel and fit right over your wheel, making it difficult, or impossible, to move the car from its location. Fortunately, most also come with extra keys, so you don't have to stress about accidentally locking yourself out. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

1. Trimax Chock Lock

2. The Club Tire Claw

Editor's Notes
