    Default Why not to use Steering anti theft lock in Corolla GLI 2011?

    I read this warning on the sunshade on my Toyota GLI 2011. It said, "Usage of anti theft lock on steering shaft and brake/clutch paddle may affect parts and car performance". I do not know the science behind it. Apparently it looks alright if you keep your wheels straight while parked and not make the lock pull the clutch paddle too hard. I could not find the logic behind it on internet as well. I will be thankful if someone could explain why it may affect the parts and performance. Thank you.

    i think the warning refers to the locks that attach to the brake/clutch and your steering. The forces involved can bring play in the steering or the pedals, decreasing the experience of driving

    Yes precisely. It refers to the locks which binds the brake/clutch paddles. So, If I put the lock in placing making sure there is no abnormal tension in paddles then I guess it would be okay. Isn't it?
    Thank you for the reply.
