Van Locks, Deadlocks and Slam locks for all makes and models
There are a number of van locks available on the market today. One of the very best available is the Deadlock.
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-driver applications, where the driver can be relied upon to operate the lock.
L4V kits are vehicle door specific and contain all the required fixings, fittings and instructions to enable a technician to perform a cost effective installation. All L4V cylinders, housings and plugs are plated in highly durable satin nickel. To maintain a consistent and long lasting appearance external trims are available, as either UV stabilised black Nylon or satin nickel-plated brass.
To maintain the aesthetic appearance of the vehicle. Both versions are suitable for fitting to vehicle bodywork, without causing damage to paintwork. Note: Black external trims supplied as standard.

A slam lock is a device that automatically locks the vehicle door, immediately as it is shut. Without requiring any operation by the driver. It is primarily designed for applications such as multi-drop delivery or 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 slam locks is total control. Electronic systems often have either global (all doors) Or area (load or cab) unlocking. This leaves the non-required doors vulnerable until the auto re-lock action operates. Slam locks do not have this vulnerability.
L4V Slam Locks
L4V slam locks 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. All L4V slam lock kits are designed with escape from locked load areas via the manufacturers own internal exit mechanism in mind. This is an extremely important feature, as it ensures compliance with Health & Safety at work and Corporate Manslaughter legislations.
