Steering Wheel Lock

New to dolly towing, I plan on dolly towing a 2017 mini cooper. I've read the steering wheel must be locked when car is on dolly but the new cooper does not have a locking steering wheel. What's the best way to lock a steering wheel on a car with a non lockable steering column.

I believe it only needs to be locked if your dolly has a rotating platform, otherwise it has to be unlocked.

But if you need it locked there's always The Club:

What dolly are you planning to tow with? Like Tfryman said it all depends on the dolly.

Yep exactly. If the dolly has a pivot or turn capability then you have to lock or tie your steering wheel. If you don't you can never back up because the two pivot points could act against each other.
