eehh, Thats east to brake. Any real car theft they really wants to get his car will most likely have something to brake that lock in no time.

Not really since there is no good way to get at the lock to cut it.

5th gear is probably the worst choice, as it is one of the weakest gears in the transmission....which would be the easiest to destroy the gear so the car will roll.

Well, if your walking around with a pair of bolt cutters, there'* not many locks that will keep you out...

That lock is pretty beat up, though... Go through all that effort to put in that mechanism, you think you could spring for a new lock....
