Transit van drivers are being warned by Police to be extra vigilant after a number of reported break-ins where thieves have gained entry to the vehicle without any sign of forced entry.

It’s thought that the break-ins have been carried out using a lock-picking device which is capable of bypassing the lock system without causing any damage to the vehicle.

There's no restriction on the sale of locksmith equipment in the UK, meaning such devices are available on the open marketplace.

It’s worth pointing out that Transit vans are not the only commercial vehicle at risk. No van is 100% secure when faced with a suitable lock pick device, however the sheer volume of Transits out on the road means the number of reported break-ins will consequently be higher.

Here at National Autorax we can provide many solutions to help prevent people from gaining access to your valuables inside the vehicle. below is just a few options available, Call our freephone number 0808 168 1171 and speak with one of our team to find out the right solution for you and your vehicle.

 Dead Locks

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.

Slam Locks

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.
