What is the Most Secure Van Lock?

The best way to protect your van is by fitting a hook lock on a sliding door and a slamlock/deadlock on rear doors.

The most secure van lock for driver side & passenger side doors on a van is fitting either a slamlock or deadlock.

What is the difference between a Van Slamlock and Deadlock?

The main difference is a Van slamlock automatically locks when shutting the door, there is no need for a key to lock the door.  Whereas a deadlock requires a key to lock and unlock the door once shut.

Where each lock is fitted is different – a van slamlock can be main fitted to a van side door + rear door, whereas deadlocks are commonly used on side doors.

Are Van Deadlocks any Good?

Van deadlocks are a good visual deterrent and offer some level of security against opportunist thief. However, fitting a hook bolt deadlock offers a much higher level of security against an attack.

Are Van Slamlocks Secure?

Yes, a Van Slamlock is secure as it locks behind you, this is why couriers and delivery drivers have slam locks fitted to the rear door, there is no need to use a key each time the van door is shut with a slamlock.

How Can I Stop Van Door Peeling?

To protect your van from ‘peel and steal’ we recommend fitting an anti peel kit, this is fitted to the vans side loading door.

Van Security - Anti Peel Kit to stop van door peeling

You can also fit a van hook look that will prevent the door from being peeled open.

The best van security combination to prevent van door peeling is fitting an anti peel kit AND a van hook look.

Can adding Van Security Locks reduce my Insurance?

Every insurance provider will have a different policy on vehicle security and additional locks.

We recommend speaking to your insurer and make them aware of additional van security locks you have installed or plan to fit.
