So, I bought this little pouch so I would have a visual reminder to check for my key when an auto shop has it. It is a small pouch with a zipper and a little loop on the end.
Here are my two gripes with it.
1. They should have velcro backed the pouch so you could stick it under your seat or somewhere where velcro attaches allowing you to hide it in your vehicle. I know of several people who have expensive wheels stolen, and having the lock only makes the badguy break your window and go into your glovebox to get the key. If it was velcro backed, he would just break your window and ransack your glovebox, but he would not get your wheels.
2. The little loop is so you can loop it onto the crummy emergency jack system that comes with your vehicle. The problem is that it is not elastic so if you want to loop it onto a modern folding T bar wrench, you cant.
I feel the pouch is a must for me as I wont lose the darn thing again, but with a little better engineering, it could be great.
So when I saw this I thought this might be a solution. I could hang it in a highly visible, but secure location in the trunk. I was disappointed that this zippered pouch feels so flimsy. Since it will be holding a heavy metal item, and perhaps even the spare lug nuts, I had forcast that it would be some kind of sturdy heavy canvas.
So for what I got, I feel ripped off. It's overpriced. It remains to be seen if the white printing will catch the eyes of service personnel when I get the wheels rotated.
Now I will admit, I do keep this pouch in the vehicle's glove compartment. I do realize that this may not be the best place for the key lock inside the McGard Wheel Key Lock Storage Pouch. I read others requesting velcro or other options to hold this pouch secure in other hard to find and/or hard to reach areas inside the vehicle. I have personally not bothered to locate a place other than the vehicle glove compartment to store this pouch, so this is not an issue. The vehicle has an alarm system, which will alert others of vehicle break-in. Even if pouch is in vehicle glove compartment, there is less of a chance of wheel theft. Furthermore, if the pouch is kept in hard to find and/or hard to reach areas of the vehicle, the thief(s) stealing the tires would not know regardless.
The McGard Wheel Key Lock Storage Pouch holds wheel lock key as advertised.
As others have said over and over...remember where you put this:)
