    Is this Legal?

    I know a few people who have got into trouble because of their MAGLITE's but is this the solution for them?

    How safe do you feel in your car?

    I feel safe enough. I am glad the doors lock after 5mph. My Clifford alarm on my previous non-MB car used to lock the doors as soon as you turned the ignition. Something I like.


    Anyway, I have been waiting for a thread, which calls for me to post a pic of my big tool :bannana:


    Here is my "emergency windscreen wiper adjustment tool". Just incase I break down in the woods and need to fend off any wildlife.

    I might add, that yes I do carry it, but not immediatley to hand in case I get caught in the heat of some road rage, when I may regret it.

    G,

    your a big lad tho! :shocking: :crazy:

    The police could nick you for it if it wasn't in your boot!!!


    a friend of mine had a really nice alarm on his car - if his doors were opened after the car was running the car would stop after a preset time and windows lock and imobiliser on - he had a secret switch (heater control on position 2) not a secret anymore is it! nah that cars been scrapped, the switch would need to activated everytime a door was opened, the car would make discreet 'beeps' everytime after a door was opened.

    rather let someone take your car away or would you take the law into your own hands? I know what I would do....

    Anyone want a group buy on a Billy Bat? :devil:

    The Billy Bat is a cool idea because you never have to use it and can always keep it beside your seat - If you was to use it you could get into trouble - but I think for most people pulling out a bat wud make u scared - actually there are loads of lunatics out there who wouldnt give 2 stinks and still would challenge you - enter the 745 op amp electrical trick AKA stun gun ;)

    Pentagon window tint do a unbreakble clear tint (this cannot be applied to rear windows im told)

    Hmmmmmm... need to re-think some security.

    Well where i live its not bad at all, never had any break ins or road rage attempts or anything.

    I do however have a 6inch knife blade in my car - BUT this is not a weapon its part of a multi tool Leatherman type thing which is just well a handy tool ;)

    Needless to say if i felt threatened by anyone and they were willing to do me some harm i'd probably reach under my seat and pull out my 12 guage :D (joke ;))

    How about the cross like wench, (the one for the tire nuts) and a emengency use hammer with a sharp sphere like punch on the end, for u to break the glass?

    I 'stock' both in my car, one under the seat and one inside the door compartment, so have two, and your passenger could help u as well....

    3D cell maglite fits great on the console side of the drivers seat and its got quick access there for fast illumination in emergency situations.

    like so ....

    good idea!!

    But I prefer to use the emergency hammer, which I get it from halford, because it is small, and could place in the compartment in the driver side door, once the sharp sphere hit his skull, it break!! then u could do what ever u want... :D

    and u have reasonable reason that why u carrying it inside your car, when police stop u...:)
