Thats exactly it. It will only work if you push your clutch and brake in, then remove from gear, then pull e-brake, then shut car off. If the car is put back in gear before car is shut off, then it will disarm the system. I have had them on my last 3 manual transmission cars (7 years) and have not had a single problem. Only thing is cost. The cheapest one cost me $540.
