DB Vehicle Electrics uses no other van deadlock provider, We are a main dealer for Locks 4 Vans in the Essex area due to us providing a very neat and reliable installation. With all holes cut in the vehicles body work are fully rust protected and neatly cut to insure your van locks last for the life of the vehicle. We supply or fit two types of locking kits from Locks 4 Vans which are the standard range which use a regular euro cylinder key which is like a Yale key you would use in your front door. They also offer a Thatcham approved range which have an anti bump key cylinder and these are very hard to lock pick. Most people go for the Thatcham approved range as it helps there tool insurance when they are left in the van. I would also like to point out all the fixing brackets used are very thick metal unlike many other lock providers these plates really hold up against excess force within the lock area.
Locks 4 Vans bring you the finest products on the market with the T Series Deadlocks which are now Thatcham approved, the T Series Deadlocks are designed to give you maximum security even if your original locks are compromised as the door still will not open with the deadlock in the locked position. The lock also serves as a visual deterrent so with easier pickings along the road your van will be a lot safer, the T Series key is designed to be the ultimate in security and strength. The key is manufactured from solid nickel silver, the large easily gripped bow is branded with the L4V logo signifying that this is an automotive product, unlike similar products the solid bow cannot be twisted off.
So what’s the difference between the S and the T series Deadlocks? The difference is the barrel and of course the key:-
S Series: The S Series key is more like your traditional Yale type key with the key cuts on the edge of the key, although it is a controlled blank and not one that is available over the counter in this country.
T Series: The T Series key is a security dimple type key with different depth holes drilled into the flat face of the key, this key is more resistant to picking, is stronger and has Thatcham approval.
To Sum up, having either lock on your van will improve it’s security massively, most van break in’s are probably done in seconds rather than minutes by taking advantage of a manufacturers weak point. That weak point might be people punching screwdrivers in under door handles, by breaking off big plastic handles or by smashing glass, the point is that if a van thief knows that they can break into a particular model van in 30 seconds with out making any real noise then they know that they can do it to every one of those thousands of vans up and down the country, this makes it easy for them to pop it open just to look and see if there are any tools or anything of value in your van. Don’t make it easy for them, instead make it 10 or even 100 times harder with either the S or the T series deadlocks and they might as well carry on and pop open the one parked down the road from your van as harsh as that sounds for them.
