  • Patent number: 6434979
    Abstract: A clutch lock for preventing starting or operation of a recreational vehicle. The clutch lock includes a clutch member, a locking mechanism, and a handle. The clutch member includes two legs, connected at one end, to form a U-shape. The clutch member is placed through the housing on a vehicle's clutch. The locking mechanism operates to connect the two open ends of the legs of the clutch member to fix the clutch lock to the clutch housing. The lock is operable between a locked position where the clutch lock is fixed to the clutch housing and an open position where the locking mechanism may be removed to allow removal of the clutch lock. The handle extends away from the clutch member such that it makes contact with the frame of the vehicle to prevent the clutch from rotating and, thus, the vehicle from starting.
