Stoplock Pro Elite - does it fit Bongos?

Post by LooiLooi » Wed Apr 04, 2018 11:24 am

Hi there,

I’m new to the forum, so hello everyone!

Due to the recent high number of campervan thefts in our borough (Waltham Forest in London), we want to make our Bongo as secure as we can and having read the excellent reviews on the Stoplock Elite Pro this seems to be a great and cost-effective solution. However, having checked their fitting guide, they don’t include Bongos in their Mazda section, so has anyone bought a Stoplock Pro Elite for their Bongo and does it fit?

Many thanks.

Hi, welcome aboard. 8)

I can't see why it wouldn't fit, and if buying from your local car accessory shop no doubt you could pop out and try it, but for the price I'd look at the Stoplok:

Hello Looilooi
I have a stoplock fitted to my bongo, not the elite pro although they look the same, mine has a small flashing LED in the lock casing as a further deterant. Fits perfect and is a great visual deterant.

Hi,
Yes it fits. We have one on our bongo.
Its smaller than the disclok - easier to take with us and use when out & about. But still has very good reviews for security.

Just make sure the vehicle has the standard steering wheel.

Re: Stoplock Pro Elite - does it fit Bongos? And exhaust sensor.

Have just bought a very nice Bongo - now trying to make it secure. I am told that it is not worth buying an immobiliser as thieves can easily deal with it. Does anyone know if one can get an immobiliser that is reasonably priced, easy to fit, and works?
Also regarding the Stoplock Pro Elite - I believe frolm posts and other websites that this is the best and sturdiest and delays thieves for at least 5 minutes whereas other locks may only do so for seconds.
However the last post about the standard steering wheel worries me. Do all petrol automatic 2L Friendees have standard steering wheels?

One more point - have a lit warning light for the exhaust sensor (Lambard). Is the spare part (which seems difficult to order) easy to fit? I believe the part costs £210 or so? Could it mean that my exhaust has a leak?
Thanks for any advice.

Any immobiliser or steering wheel lock can be dealt with, its more about how much it can slow someone down to make it not worth it.
I would say its definitely worth having an immobiliser fitted and on the petrol models (if properly fitted) they are a bit harder to bypass.
Ideally you want a combined alarm & immobiliser.
If looking at a steering wheel lock check what type of lock barrel its has, you ideally want one with a disc detainer type core, the ones with the round tubular type keys & locks are ridiculously easy to unlock with very cheap tools that can be bought online & used with practically no skill at all.

EDIT: Just had a look at this Stoplock Pro Elite & it does appear to have a disc detainer core.
