Watch his video (car tow dolly), it shows why around the 7:30- 8 minute area.
Plus it just makes sense. If the steering was locked the cars just gonna fight the wheel straps or scrub like a spread axle trailer.
Oh, And old (and new) tow trucks have swivels built in or allow the front to swivel so they will work with locked columns.
Very interesting on the column lock. I worked for an autogoup that had a toyota dealership untill about a year ago. Never new about the lock trick. Did know that toyota was about the only ones that didn't have a battery saver programmed in them to turn lights off, if left on or door left open. We were always having to jump them off. Hopefully they will or have this fixed for the new ones.
Good luck with your towing!
