steering wheel disconnect?

ok so i was just looking around and iv always like a quick disconnect steering wheel(security purposes) i know that if someone really wants it they can get it but at least it would slow them down a bit.

I know grant makes a kits thats about $150 but what about something like this;http://offroad-review.com/new/index.php?page=175

im interested to see if anyone has tried something like this on a YJ...


thoughts?...

i used to have the grant system on a CJ i had, very nice system, but tempermental to dirt and water, the release lever would sometimes have to go back and forth a few times to disengage the lock and allow the wheel to come on, or go off, i found itwas best o keep it spotless and even used emery clotch to brighten it up than use WD or PB to lube it, they just attracted dirt even faster..

but once on, was very secure.. just a slight ticking noise when you pull it left and right, its not a 100% solid mount so it had a small amount of side play



edit:
and oh, my horn NEVER worked right after i installed it, a few occassions didnt work at all, and sometime i got that "beep, beep, beep" as i tirned the wheel!!

it would even start blaring on its own and i would have to jump out and pull the clip on the horn itself till i installed a dash mounted horn button..

I use one like that but with the splines not the hex. The hex has a lot of play in it whereas the splined ones are tighter. I always weld them on but if you don't want to be that committed I believe Summit sells one manufactured by Grant that threads on to the column.

I have been looking at this as well for my XJ, after some a hole tried to steel it last night I am looking for some theft protection...

Ive seen one on jegs for 80 bucks, it says for GM saginaw type shafts. I imagine thats the one which would fit nicely over the splines..atleast thats what the research I did points out to. With that one you dont even need to weld it, just cage nut.

But I have never seen or used the one in the link...
