Official crime stats point to an overall decline in vehicle break-ins, but a recent study suggests that tradespeople could be bearing the brunt of what remains.
According to the study – conducted by IronmongeryDirect – 23 per cent of tradespeople have faced vehicle break-ins, 230 of the 1000 surveyed experiencing van theft over the past five years.
Vehicle security has never been more of an issue in modern society. While it is exceedingly sad that such considerations have to be made, the cost of lost or stolen tools, equipment and installations can be so substantial that it might destroy a business as well as its reputation.

A slamlock is a device that automatically locks the vehicle door immediately it is shut, without requiring any operation by the driver.It is primarily designed for applications such as multi drop delivery, high value loads and applications where the owner/ operator requires control over the security of their goods. It is the function that appeals as much as the security.
Another major advantage with mechanical slamlocks is total control. Electronic systems often have either global (all doors) or area (load or cab) unlocking- this leaves the unrequired doors vulnerable until the auto relock action operates. Slamlocks do not have this vulnerability.
L4V slamlocks integrate with the vehicle manufacturers’ locking systems. This provides Maximum Security along with straightforward installation. They combine a genuine Security Slam operation with a high visual deterrent and a pleasing appearance.
A Deadlock is a mechanical device fitted to a vehicle door. It operates by throwing a bolt into a receiver fitted to the opposing body section when operated by an external key.
As Deadlocks are under the control of the driver, they are generally only appropriate for owner drivers or applications where the driver can be relied upon to operate the lock.
