Golf cart locks and/or security tips can prevent your cart from being stolen. In our golf cart community it's not uncommon to read about golf cart thefts in our local paper. Often the carts are just taken for a joy ride and then abandoned but other times the cart is gone for good.
Of course the best security solution is to store your cart in a garage.
Many of the home owners in our golf cart community have a golf cart garage that's usually like a 3'rd garage but smaller than the garage space for your car.
Many people are unaware that the key that usually comes with your golf cart are what is called a "common" key, which means it can be used to drive other golf carts.
So if your cart is parked outside and you've removed the key, someone could come with a "common" key and drive away with your cart. A "unique" key requires the installation of a new key switch. Look for the words "unique" or "uncommon". This means that the key for your golf cart cannot work with anyone else's cart nor can someone with a common key use it to start your golf cart.
Feel more comfortable about leaving your golf cart outside unattended by securing it with a golf cart lock. One place to use your golf cart locks is on your wheels/tires.
Put the lock onto the wheel, push and lock. Pay attention to the size of your tire width and wheel thickness.
Most of the locks have a 10" tire width maximum and a 7" wheel thickness maximum.Golf Cart Locks for Tires
Golf cart locks for your steering wheel means you don't have to bend down and get near the ground to lock and unlock your security device.
The Club UTL800 Utility Lock is a favorite and commonly used lock.
Another option is a golf cart security bar.
