Don't cop it -
Cop-lock is a new vehicle anti theft device. Invented and internationally patented by retired Victorian police sergeant Bob Lycoudis. Cop-Lock is an effective, practical and affordable cure against the car theft epidemic. It will ensure that your car stays where you left it.
The unique steel boot fits over and surrounds the brake or clutch pedal and also secures the pedal arm. A self-locking shaft is engaged to the floor of the vehicle securing the boot and stopping the pedal from being depressed. As a result the effective use of the brakes and or the transmission is stopped. In addition some vehicles cannot be started unless the brake or clutch pedal is depressed.
Cop-lock attaches to one of the strongest parts of the vehicle – unlike the steering wheel, which is designed to bend on impact as it is made of foam and soft metal. A thief can easily cut a steering wheel in seconds using a bolt cutter or hacksaw and remove the device attached.
Many electronic anti theft devices are expensive, some can be foiled by criminals and can malfunction. It has been independently tested by Hand Brake Turn an organisation sponsored by industry, government and police, whose staff are experienced in the ways that thieves steal vehicles

2. What is Cop-Lock’s size and weight?
Cop -Lock is similar in weight (1.8 kg) and size (55cm in length) to most steering locks. It is smaller and lighter than most other pedal locks and when effectiveness is also taken into account; it is far superior to other mechanical anti-theft devices.
3. Has it been independently tested?
Hand Brake Turn carried out comprehensive tests on the Cop-lock prototype between 2004/2006 independently by persons with extensive knowledge car theft tools and methods. In 2006 the final prototype survived secure and fully operational.
The COP-LOCK is a motor vehicle brake/clutch pedal lock that has been developed by a retired Australian Police Sergeant with 20 years’ experience in the force. His objective was to develop a user friendly manual anti-theft device to help combat the massive problem of car theft. It had to really work yet was within reach of the average motorist. Expensive electronic anti-theft devices can be easily defeated. The Cop-Lock is a strong secure physical barrier that can be used in conjunction with electronics as layered protection, as advocated by police and many insurance companies.
WHY IT REALLY WORKS
The unique patented boot fits over and surrounds the brake or clutch pedal and also secures to the pedal arm. These pedal parts are made of solid hardened steel and are one of the strongest components of the motor vehicle, being virtually impossible to cut by reasonable means. A self-locking shaft is pressed to the firewall/floor of the motor vehicle securing the Cop-Lock boot on the pedal and stopping the pedal being depressed.
