    I have owned a clutch claw for many years, I use it on a Classic Land Rover and it gives me the peace of mind that the vehicle will still be there when I return, without lifting the vehicle onto a trailer and heavy tools this device will not be moved, this is a superb VISUAL deterrent, the Clutch Claw is expertly made, easy to fit and adjust to almost any vehicle. I have used the Clutch Claw on my motorhome when abroad as an added safety feature, again peace of mind.

    A great company to deal with, nothing is too much trouble, kind and helpful which is rare nowadays. Thanks for keeping my car safe!

    The “Clutch Claw” is a necessary investment that everybody who loves their car should make. It feels indestructible and is installed in seconds. Don’t even think about tinting your windows or getting HID lights. This device should be the first on your list.

    After exchanging a couple of friendly and prompt emails with Grant, getting a shipping quote, and paying via Pay-Pal, my new “Clutch Claw” arrived to my residence in Toronto, Canada in under a week. Everything was in-tact and as described. Better yet, it fit my manual transmission, 1993 Honda Civic perfectly.

    Thanks Grant!

    I bought a clutch claw several years ago and have had sterling service from it since on my Land Rover. However I have just replaced the two door tops and have now lost the warning stickers that were afixed to the side windows. Could I possibly order and additional 4 (so I have some spare as well) from you? If you could let me know the cost and how to pay that would be great.

    Hi Steve

    Thanks for the offer to post out some new Clutch Claw window stickers.

    I had the Clutch Claw on my previous Land Rover Defender and have now bought a new one.

    The stickers act as an extra deterrent.

    Thanks Again

    Hi Grant

    After repeated attempts to steal my defender, I fitted a clutch claw and now thieves take one look and move on. Fitted in seconds and fits comfortably in the cubby box.

    Hi Grant

    Having bought my first motorhome nearly new 6 years ago, the first thing I did was get a clutch claw for some extra security. It has served me very well too. I keep my van on the street, use it to go everywhere and often visit towns and cities and park on-street. My trusty Hymer has taken me all over Europe including overnighting in places as as far away as Warsaw, Berlin, Paris and other places in France, Italy, Poland and Germany often without the benefit of secure parking, so it is very reassuring to know the Clutch claw is there to keep it safe and deter any would be thieves!

    I can highly recommend it to anyone who needs to secure there vehicle.

    Hi Grant,

    I am the very contented owner of a Clutch Claw that I purchased some 2 years ago; a great product. However, I have just traded my motorhome and could not remove the window stickers for re-use on the new unit. Can you please replace?

    I’ve been using my Clutch Claw on my Series 3 rag top Land Rover for several months now as locking it is a waste of time. The Claw is very easy to use when it’s set-up, which means I do use it (even when feeling lazy!). I like the LED light which draws attention to it at night-time acting as a good deterrent and it is not too bulky for storing when not in use. All in all a very well thought out product that does exactly what I need it to.

    Hi Grant,
    Thanks for the response which was awaiting my return home.

    I think the clutch claw is a good deterent and is preferable to a wheel lock which is much more accessible.
    I felt more vunerable not being able to fit it to the new motorhome immediately.
    However, I worked out the modifications needed by adding a spare spacer and changing the peg settings.

    Hi Grant,
    Thank you very much for your kind help. Cost of courier delivery is one of the problems we have as we technically live in the ‘Highlands’ – although we are only a 100miles from Glasgow.
    We have ordered 3 sound proofing kits for our landrovers over the last 5-6 years and in that case we clearly accept that the cost has to be more due to our address. In this case you helped to save us money and that is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Grant, I just wanted to say thank you for making such a great product in the clutch claw!

    I’ve only had it a few weeks and it has already fended off some little Oik who tried to take my pride and joy on Saturday night!

    After breaking in and deactivating the alarm and a half assed attempt on the immobiliser they then had a token go at the claw with no avail a few hammer marks and botched attempts to try and chisel the lock later they gave up in the end.

    I’m sure without this product my defender would be long gone in a container or stripped out in pieces by now!

    Thank you once again.

    Hi, I recently purchased a clutch claw for my Land Rover 101″ at the
    Driffield land rover show. It’s a fantastically made product and I
    will be purchasing another one for my other land rover in due course.
    Unfortunately to properly fit my 101″ I require an additional large
    spacer (about 30mm), is it possible to get one?

    Dear Grant, Thank you for the prompt receipt of the Clutch Claw.

    It was recommended to me by my local independent Landrover garage (Strathearn Engineering of Abruthven, Perthshire) as most standard steering locks don’t fit. It was easy to install and is easy to use, I can see that it requires a degree of time and determination to get off without the key!

    Hopefully it won’t be tested in practice, but I now have peace of mind if my Landy is left in a location away from home.

    Thanks again for the prompt service.

    Hello Grant,

    The Clutch Claw was purchased some 17 years ago (or thereabouts) and was the answer to securing a Motorhome we had, it was subsequently transferred to a larger m/home when the Insurance Company stated that they would load the Insurance without extra security measures. In later years it became awkward to remove with advance of old age but it was never left undone.

    It was subsequently used on a Land Rover Discovery where it has been in constant use for the past 12 years but reluctantly we had to sell it BUT retained the Cluch Claw much to the disgust of the new owner (he tried to say it was part of the vehicle’s security) – he retained the window stickers.

    It is currently being used on a Peugeot 406 and people do laugh when you kneel down to fit it but no-one has ever taken our vehicles whilst others have lost theirs.

    The unit has travelled, and continues to travel, all over Europe and will remain so.

    Of all the security devices I have tried over the years, the Clutch Claw is the only one I have praised and thanked for its presence.

    Thank you Centinel for a wonderful product and anyone concerned about secrity should also consider the Security Post and together nothing will move away from you.

    I’d just like to say how impressed I am with the service Centinal provided, I ordered the Clutch Claw

    online and it arrived the very next day.

    The instructions where easy to follow and I’d fitted it to my Defender within half an hour.

    It’s quick to take on and off, and looks robust enough to withstand the most determined crook.

    Dear Grant,

    Thank you for a speedy transaction and delivery. The Clutch Claw was easy to assemble and to fit. I bought it for my Fiat Ducato van as a visible deterrent and physical barrier to would-be vehicle thieves. It has given me added peace of mind knowing that my van is better protected.

    Hi I bought your clutch claw I think in 2004 and still works very well still very pleased with it. And I believe it has saved me from losing my canvas series. But have changed land rover from series to defender and was wondering whether you still have the yellow stickers that go on side windows. Thank you from one very happy customer.

    Bought my Clutch Claw at the Peterborough Motorhome show 2 years ago , and have used it on my Laika Motorhome since. It was easy to adjust and quick to put on . When we are on holiday we tend to leave our Motorhome on site and leaving the Clutch Claw attached gives a great sense of security . It is strong and robust and a visible deterrent to would be thief’s.
    We have just changed the Laika for a Chausson , and I adjusted the Clutch Claw in minutes . Overall an excellent securtity device and well worth buying

    My clutch claw arrived yesterday. I fitted and set it up last night on my Citroen berlingo mk3 van, have to say real good bit of kit.
    Easy to install (even at 6pm in October in the dark).
    The claw is solid and pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin. Had an old steering lock on the van before which I know can be easy to break off, heard a lot of stories lately about vans being stolen, so thought I’d make an investment in this.
    The two now both combined I can feel reassured my van and all its contents are still there when I come back to it, all but lifting the vehicle onto a trailer, I see no other way of stealing it.
    Real happy, thank you

    I was looking for a high quality security device for a classic car when a friend recommended “Clutch Claw”. He had used one for many years on his Land Rover and rated them highly. Having ordered one I can see why. The build quality is superb. The device itself is easy to set up and alter in the event you wish to secure a different vehicle. Most importantly I now sleep easy in the knowledge that the “pride and joy” is safe.

    Overall a great product

    Hallo Grant, I bought a Clutch Claw for my 2002 Euramobil on a Fiat Ducato chassis,
    very please with it. I part-exchanged it for a new Roller Team also on
    a Ducato chassis.
    Took the clutch claw apart, following the instructions on the video,
    used the smallest spacer, repositioned the pegs/rods and put it on the
    new camper van.
    I figure that my old Euramobil did not get stolen, so neither with the
    new one.

    Hello there,

    The Clutch Claw I ordered on Wednesday arrived today, so thank you for getting that to me so quickly.

    I have set it up for the car (a 1971 Lotus Elan +2), however the short distance between the back of the pedals and the bulkhead means that the top box cannot be pushed far enough down to clamp the pedal arms firmly between it and the back plate because the pegs are too long and are up against the foot at the bottom of the centre bar.

    To clamp the pedal arms firmly, I think the pegs need to be 3-4cm shorter. To this end, is there any chance you could supply shorter pegs? I’d be happy to return the old ones if necessary.

    Kind regards,

    Simon Cooper

    • (verified owner):

      Hi Simon, I will get some shorter pegs sent to you free of charge no worries. We actually now get all the pegs done at this length! Keep the longer pegs in case you ever need them in the future! All the best!

    There are two aspects to buying anything : the item and the sales care.
    The item :- strong, easily modified to fit your car perfectly in 5 minutes using a screwdriver and a spanner.
    Fits in a few seconds without needing the key.
    Removed in only a few seconds and easily stored in back footwell.
    It’s strong and reliable. Nothing’s 100%, but if they get past this, they’ll get past anything and your cars theirs anyway.
    Grinding off this or the pedals is the only way to get this little monster off.
    The sales care :- I bought this over 8 years ago. Grew lazy when moved to quiet village. Then next doors car was stolen.
    Got this out. Different car and only one key found. Bought extra key and asked if the adjustable parts and new warning stickers could be bought.
    Emailed back within 3 working hours. Parts and stickers sent free. Arrived 48 hrs later.
    For a customer who bought once over 8 years ago, that is great customer service.
    So I fully recommend the product and the service.

    The clutch claw is a great item to secure your vehicle with. It completely locks the clutch makes your vehicle impossible to drive unless you have the key to remove it because you would never get this off any other way without making a lot of noise & time. It’s a brilliant item & well worth every penny to have peace of mind that your vehicle is safe & secure

    I’ve been using this product for the last 5 years over 3 different vans, can’t fault it excellent product gives you the confidence to leave your vehicle unattended knowing that it’s secure from thieves. Would recommend to anyone.

    Good afternoon Grant
    Many thanks for your advice during our telephone call yesterday. Just to recap we bought a clutch claw from you about 10 years ago and it performed very well on a manual Fiat motorhome but we now have a Fiat automatic motorhome and the clutch claw would not fit without modification. As promised I attach photos showing the ‘claw with repositioned and reduced length pegs, I hope these are helpful. It seems to be quite a snug fit and will not rotate or pull off the brake pedal and it is not possible to depress the accelerator.
    Excellent advice thank you!

  46. 5 out of 5


    Many thanks for sending this Grant: it arrived in plenty of time, was waiting at my local Post Office for me to collect and it fits my Mustang perfectly

    I think this claw is a great idea for classic cars because it does not involve damaging the car in any way, and unlike devices such as those that fit to the steering wheel it won`t scratch the steering wheel.

    It is salient timing as well because thefts of classic cars are on the increase.

    So, well done for inventing something so simple yet usable.

    with best wishes, Bill

    Clutch claw is brilliant. You just can’t crack it without cutting away much of the car’s bulkhead.
    And the important thing is that potential thieves can see this…the ones with any brain that. Is. Retired from Police after nearly 30 years and never came across
    A car theft where a claw had been cracked and this is. West. Yorkshire so there are quite a few at it!
    Thoroughly recommend this bit of kit. O. K. It’s awkward to get at and tricky to release but that’s part of the rationale.
    One thing though, there’s a blinker with it to highlight its existence and after 10 years or so it’s gone flat.
    Tsk tsk tsk.

    Having been a satisfied owner of a Clutch Claw for the last few years I have recently changed my vehicle for the first time and was a little dubious about adjusting it to my new purchase as I had misplaced the instructions. I need not have worried it was adjusted and on my new vehicle in minutes. Well done Clutch Claw job well done.

    Dear Grant

    I am confirming that I got my Clutch Claw back from you yesterday. I rang you before Christmas to say that i had changed my motorhome and the Clutch Claw would not fit my new Peugeot Motorhome. You said that if I sent it back you would alter it so that it would fit, which you did. I am so grateful that you were able to do this for and that I did not have to buy a new unit. Your customer service is excellent and I could not have asked for better service.

    The Centinel Clutch Claw was recommended to me by a friend. It’s a great
    product, easy to fit to my Land Rover Defender and gives great peace of

    thank you for your prompt service, my clutch claw arrived within 10 minutes of the allocated time !Just a suggestion(not a complaint !) might it not be a relatively simple task to have the led flashing light switch on/off when the lock is locked or have a switch attached to preserve battery power. Otherwise an excellent piece of kit. Thank you.

    I have a Clutch Clew fitted to my Fiat Ducato motorhome. The Claw arrived only a few days after ordering and the fitting was very quick and easy, helped also by an online video. It fits very snug and secure with little or no movement even with a good, hard shake. The built in light is very bright and easily seen at night. It’s strong well built construction makes it easy to see how it would stop even the most determined thief.
    I’m more than happy to recommend the Clutch Claw and have done to several people who asked about motorhome security in online forums and in person.
    All in all, well worth the money knowing the motorhome is safe.

    I have been the owner of a Clutch Claw for 5 years now, which I use on my 1972 Lightweight Land Rover. It’s easy to fit, and provides an excellent level of security.
    I recently lost the foam pad which fits under the base of the device. Upon emailing Steve to ask about sourcing and purchasing a replacement, he replied to say that they would send me one free of charge, which they did.
    Excellent product and excellent customer service – thank you.

    Brilliant piece of kit. Have used it for years on my Motorhome. Now that’s sold, I will continue to use it on my new keyless car. Thanks to Grant for sending extra spacers and stickers. Always helpful on the phone.
