Question
Dear ZZ

Is it possible to Add mechanical combination Lock for the front door of the driver's seat in the four Wheeler vehicles viz cars, jeeps, trucks, buses etc?.

Do you feel that it can add Security to the four Wheeler vehicle from thefts?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Yes, it is possible to make and add mechanical combination locks.

No, it would not add security over theft because the electronic key fob system with encrypted data is a better and more secure system.

Convenience of the remote keyless fob system outweighs the disadvantage of the combination lock.  There have been keyed systems before but they were not popular in the market.
