My concern with the Laguna one is more that if anyone does try to steal the bars, they're liable to damage the paintwork in the process.
The roof bar feet engage behind the door, and so the door has to be open to install or remove them properly. Having said that, I'm sure a bit of brute force would get them to pop out if you really weren't bothered about the vehicle that you're removing it from.
I already have scuffs on the paint on mine from fitting and removing the bars (and I do my best to be careful.) Fortunately, they're hidden from view, but I can't help wondering if they'll rust in the future.
