Spare wheel anti theft devices

I believe that the MP comes which a cable winch spare wheel mechanism which makes it easy for thieves to take the wheel and tyre. Is there an anti theft device available to buy for it?

You cannot access the winch mechanism from outside the vehicle, I guess with the correct tools this mechanism could be compromised but so could any additional security you might choose to add...

Is a steel space saver(which all MP’s have)really likely to be stolen?Id have thought wheel thieves would be more attracted to expensive alloy wheels.

Sorry I have no idea what type of spare my MP will come with as my 4x4 comes with a full size alloy underslung is the same way and and can easily be stolen by having the cable cut. Also the Marco Polo chat group on facebook have been complaining about spares being stolen as an ongoing problem so just thought I would ask!

So how have you secured the spare on your 4x4
You can buy a kit for the Kia Sorento that covers the cable so that simple wire cutters cannot be used. It could probably still be taken with the right tools but would take much longer than the 30s you could do it in before!
