The Universal Plus OBDsaver is a security lock which prevents criminals attaching electronic equipment to the OBDII port and hacking the vehicle by either reprogramming a new key, bypassing the engine immobiliser or disabling the security features. The lock is simple to install and secured in place using four screws, then an extra layer of security is added which requires the correct security key to be used.

  • No hard wiring or cutting required, therefore it does not invalidate any manufactures warranty.
  • 4 x Screws which provides extra strength over other locks that only provide two.
  • Permanently stays in place unlike steering wheel locks or pedal locks.
  • DIY installation, so there is no additional installation charges incurred.
  • No software or coded equipment involved, therefore there is no possibility of thieves overcoming the system.


What is the difference between the two Universal OBD-Saver’s?

Fastening with four screws is identical.

The OBD-Saver Basic involves coded (approx. 300 different variants) and countersunk special screws, which are freely accessible.

With the OBD-Saver Universal PLUS, increased protection is obtained because the fastening screws are closed/covered with a top lock. The lock can only be removed with a key (approx. 650 different variants) and only then are the screws accessible.

How much space does the OBD-Saver Universal PLUS need?

The OBD saver builds up approx. 32.5mm when installed and is therefore this value beyond the OBD socket. Please make sure that any existing plastic panels do not interfere or adjust them accordingly. On most vehicles, the OBD socket is freely accessible and there are no interfering parts.

FAQ – frequently asked questions

Q: Will the diagnostic socket be destroyed or severely damaged?

A: No, the screws are positioned in such a way that  the contacts can not be  short-circuited. The screws form the thread at a harmless point. The function  of  the OBD socket is  100%  preserved. There will be minimal traces of the thread, but these will  not have any  negative effects.

Q: Does the diagnostic connection still work for the workshop/TÜV after assembly/disassembly?

A: Yes, the  function  and duties of the OBD socket/diagnostic socket  remain unchanged. 

Q: How do the screws hold tight in the plastic?

A: Due to the special position and shape, plastic (diagnostic socket) and metal (OBD saver) form a firm connection. Due to its optimized nature, the OBDS also offers no point of attack for violent removal.

Q: Thread wear / thread stripping in plastic ?

A: Over-tightening is prevented by a guide in the OBD saver. The screws are always guided in the same way, so that wear and tear on the OBD socket (made of plastic) is minimized. Thread flanks and screws always meet at the same position.

Q: Are there any issues with the vehicle manufacturer’s warranty?

A: The OBDS has been successfully tested and validated by several vehicle manufacturers. No manufacturer raised concerns about the warranty. You can see an example from a well-known manufacturer under this  LINK   .


When any servicing or diagnostic work is required, the Universal OBDsaver can simply be removed using the unique individual coded key supplied.
