Almost nothing can prevent a smash and grab, or tow away, but you can sure slow them down. First, would be a Revelco to prevent a drive away theft. An alarm with a starter / fuel pump cut out can also help prevent a drive away, along with making a lot of noise. Backing your van into a parking space will help prevent a tow away as the rear wheels won't turn. Steering wheel locks can be defeated very quickly, but in conjunction with an alarm sounding, a thief may decide to move on before someone sees them working on the wheel lock. Dead bolts on the doors will prevent opening the doors. Hidden fuel pump cut outs are common, and then a GPS locator device will help make a quick recovery. I try to have at least three different deterrents on all my vans, each of which will slow them down enough that they may just give up.
