High Security Hooklocks And Deadlocks. Our most popular van security upgrade, Hooklocks and Deadlocks offer a very high level of security and are ideal for tradesmen who need easy access to their van throughout the day but need the security and peace of mind that Hooklocks and Deadlocks offer whenever the van will be left for extended periods of time or is parked in a high risk area.

High Security Ford Replock and Hykee Locks. It's becoming common knowledge that the standard Ford drivers door lock on most Ford vans including the Ford Transit Custom, MK7 Ford Transit, MK8 Ford Transit and older Ford Transit Connects is notoriously simple for Thieves to attack and gain entry to your van. The High Security, Anti-Pick Replocks we install are the best solution to cure this weak point on Ford vans. Click HERE To See Our Replock Page
OBD Guards. Criminals are using state of the art vehicle diagnostic equipment to duplicate a vans key by accessing the the vehicles computer systems via the OBD diagnostics port commonly used for service resets etc. We can secure this port by fitting an OBD Guard.

Armourshell Locks. Like the Deadlocks we install, These locks offer a very high level of security. Where as the Deadlocks offer a more discreet security solution, The Armourshell locks are big locks and are a great security upgrade for customers wishing for that added visual deterrent and presence they provide.
Slamlocks. Slamlocks are the ideal solution for Couriers and Multi-drop drivers who need their van doors to lock automatically as soon as the door is shut, protecting goods inside the vehicle whilst deliveries are being made. Every time a door with a Slamlock is shut, the key will be required to open the door again.
Anti-Drill Plates. Thieves are becoming more educated in alternative methods of breaking into vans and one method that is being seen more and more often is holes being punched or drilled into doors at specific points allowing access to the doors internal locks. The lock is then forced and the van is unlocked allowing Thieves access to valuable tools and belongings. Most of the Anti-Drill Plates we install are bolted on from the inside of the door and prevent this type of attack. These plates can also be installed after an attack has been made, protecting the van from further attack and concealing any damage.
Alarm and Immobiliser systems. We supply and install Alarm systems from Meta and Clifford. They are market leaders when it comes to electronic vehicle security. Adding a Meta or Clifford Alarm along with any combination of our mechanical locks will add the highest level of security to your van.
Van And Tool Theft Is A Big Problem
Whether your van is used for business, pleasure or both it is a target for criminals.
Van and Tool theft is at a record high. There has been a 45% increase in thefts over the last four years (2015,16,17,18)! This amounts to around 30,000 vehicles stolen or broken into since 2015.
Around 10,000 of the above 30,000 vans have been stolen in the last year. This is according to police statistics.
Research and data shows a year-on-year rise of 4% and a 45% increase since 2015/16.
The problem of van theft is getting worse rather than better and is a problem right across the country.
In 2014/15 over 14,000 thefts of tools from vehicles were recorded by police in the UK, and that rose to nearly 23,000 in the year 2016/17. A rise of two-thirds! It's claimed a van is broken into and tools stolen every 23 minutes in the UK.
In 2004 BIVSA was launched. It stands for “BRITISH INSURANCE VEHICLE SECURITY AWARDS”. This award presented by Thatcham is supported by the UK Government and gave vehicle manufacturers an incentive to increase their vehicles security by way of achieving recognition for their efforts. This certainly helped but just a glance at recent crime statistics shows that it certainly has not eradicated the problem.
Thieves have become smarter and by using more advanced equipment have exploited weaknesses in manufacturers vehicle security.
