Van Locks, Deadlocks and Slam locks for all makes and models

There are a number of van locks available on the market today but Lock Doctor will only supply you with the best. One of the very best available is the Deadlock.


A deadlock is a mechanical device fitted to a vehicle door. It operates by throwing a bolt into a receiver. It is 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

L4V kits are vehicle door specific and contain all the required fixings, fittings as well as 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.

Using the Correct Van Lock

To ensure that our kits are the most appropriate for the specific application, we use a wide range of cases for our van locks, their cylinders as well as ancillary components. They are all manufactured to European standards and our own exacting specifications. Our Deadlock van locks are available in both S Series and our Thatcham Accredited T Series, to suit both application and budget.

Features include:

  • Vehicle door specific kits
  • Widest range of cylinder lengths available as standard
  • Keeps & brackets finished in textured powder coat, to prevent corrosion
  • Kits contain all required fixtures and pre-assembled fittings
  • Master keying and custom options available

Slam Locks

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.

Major advantages

Total control is also a major advantage to mechanical slam locks. 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.

LV4 Kits for Quick Installation

L4V kits are vehicle door specific and contain all the required fixtures, fittings and instructions to enable a technician to perform a cost effective professional installation. L4V slam locks are available, in both S and Thatcham accredited T Series.
