Well, let's not expect miracles. It's still connected to a plastic dash. In that thread he mentions he was parked at his office. I'd bet they already knew what was underneath, especially with the coincidence the stereo was new.
Later in that thread, a quote from the author/victim: "So i will not say, "Don't buy a Tuffy, it doesn't work..." in fact in retrospect and now that i have calmed a notch... I say rush out and buy a Tuffy, Flip-n-Lock, glove box or console"
I've been in law enforcement my entire life. I absolutely know that it won't stop some thieves. However, I also know it WILL stop some thieves. It might be a beacon to something valuable but it's better than leaving it exposed. I live in a pretty crappy city (due to work) and take my doors off often. I'm pretty sure I've already gotten my money's worth. If I was that worried, I'd have an expensive alarm with proximity sensor, pager, etc, etc. Instead, I went with a $100 deterrent and a low deductible. Then again, I lock my factory console and glove box, too. Ha!! Ha!! At least the insurance company won't say I didn't try to secure my valuables.
Always follow a great leader. In the absence of a great leader, BE ONE.
