If you own a Ford Transit MK7 ( 2006 – 2015 ) you will more than likely be aware of the security issues with thieves opening the vehicle up from the drivers door lock with a pick tool. Some customers want to protect there van with deadlocks which enhance the security. This is only worth while if the locks are fitted correctly, we have seen so many deadlocks fitted on Transit vans with no reinforcement plate meaning the lock is very quickly attacked and doesn’t offer no form of attack time.
We have now got the Ford Transit MK7 reinforcement plate in stock meaning it packs out the metal on the sliding door by atleast 3 mm. This means the whole area is reinforced and you don’t have to worry in the event of an attack, you can be assured the lock will stay in position and work perfectly to protect your vehicle.
We fit Thatcham approved deadlocks to the sliding and rear barn doors on this vehicle for the best protection. The rear barn doors don’t require any form of reinforcement plate due to the rear doors having thick metal as standard.

On this Citroen Berlingo we installed the Thatcham approved deadlocks which are a very nice fit on this vehicle. These locks are very secure featuring the anti pick euro cylinder and also anti drill pins. These locks really do look nice and sleek once installed.
The locks are only locked when the user inserts the key and turn’s. rather that a slam lock which locks everytime, this means you can never lock your keys inside the vehicle at anytime, this makes the locks perfect for many tradesman. The locks come with 3 keys in total and both the sliding and rear barn doors are keyed alike meaning one key will open and close both locks. making the opening and closing of your vehicle straight forward.
All original locking systems remain in place and you can still remotely lock and unlock your doors, these locks are additional to your security. If you would like to get your Citroen Berlingo booked in give us a call on 07525 068291.

Everyone wants a secure van, the problem is you can only do so much in terms of protecting your tools. We have seen over the past few years attacks on vans are getting worse in terms of how much damage will be done to gain access.
Most attacks on vans are done by using the doors, for example looking for the weak spot in the factory fitted door locking, which could mean picking the cylinder or drilling a small hole near the door lock motor to trip the latch. This is were van deadlocks have there advantage over the rest of any factory fitted locking system. Van deadlocks provide excellent protection for any door on your van. The only downside is a theif may use another method to gain extry which means more damage is caused.
We have seen a few vans now where there has been a hole cut in the roof to gain entry and due to most vans having a bulk head behind the driver alarm motion sensors won’t trigger. This is why we would advise on a custom alarm installation being carried out on your vehicle. We can supply and install a very wide range of security products such as alarms and immobilisers or even tracking devices in the Essex area.
You may have wondered how your van has been unlocked without the keys? Or maybe all your tools have been stolen and the vehicle was locked when you come back. Sadly thieves are using lock picks which can decode your original barrel and gain access into the vehicle within seconds. This means without no other means of noise ( A Car Alarm ) the vehicles contents can be emptied in seconds making it childs play for thieves.
