Re: Door Lock Punching Dirtbags
Hey, don't feel too bad. I had a set of original JJ's and thought I was safe. At a gun show in Mesa, AZ around 2pm in the afternoon, they broke into my truck and I didn't know it until I got home and couldn't find my tolls and camera from the back seat floor. When the tec fixed my door lock, I could tell that even with the JJ's it would only take 5 seconds to pop the lock mechanism clip and get into the truck. That's when I thought about using a small hose clamp along with the JJ's. That way, the thief would have to physically break off the entire lock mechanism to get in. Not an easy thing, and very loud. Soon after, the JJ company started including the hose clamps in their kits. Yes, they can still break a window to get in, but the 5 second entry is gone with the Jimmi-Jammers and make sure you use them on all 4 doors. Even without the door locks, the rear doors can be broken into with a screwdriver under the door plate. I really hope that anyone with a SD Ford will seriously consider this relatively cheap insurance to keep from being broken into. It works.
