The average price to fit and install a van door lock we expect to cost around £130 per van door. The price to fit van locks more locks could be cheaper as the locksmiths labour costs should be reduced due to time spent on site.

The best lock for the rear barn door of a van is fitting either a hook bolt deadlock or an Armourshell lock.
We would recommend any installation of a van lock is done by a professional and qualified engineer, incorrect fitting of any van lock could leave your van at risk of theft.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To protect your van from ‘peel and steal’ we recommend fitting an anti peel kit, this is fitted to the vans side loading door.
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.
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.
