    Locks for rear seats on Astra G

    Has anyone fitted locks to the rear seats to stop people pulling them down from inside the car. The reason i ask is that an ex neighbour had stuff in the boot and they broke in through the window and then removed his gear that way.
    My old Citroen had locks fitted in the back of the seats to prevent this.

    Can't think of anything that would actuall look nice....

    couple of large bolt sliders on the back of the rear seats, only accessible from the boot ??

    Although if you deadlock your car it should stop them trying to take stuff out from the inside.

    deadlock by double locking the door...

    The Citroen had two round catches that were recessed into the back of the seat.
    I double lock all the time but kids can get through the window if they break it and pass stuff out.
    Just a thought that was all

    I can't remember what sort of car I was in, but I have seen lockable rear seats too. Like the push buttons in the back of a Mk4, they were identical but had a key lock in the middle of the button (like on the glove box).

    I'm fairly sure it wasn't a Ford or a Vauxhall, might have been an Audi or VW though Sorry I know that's not very helpful.
