What type of locks4vans locks do we fit?

There are many different types of locks you can use to secure your vans.

Here are three of the most common locks to be fitted for van security.

Hook Lock



Hook Lock

The locks4van hook lock is the most popular lock we fit for the general trade. The hook locks is a mechanical deadlock operating independently from the manufacturers’ locking system. A deadlocking hook bolt engages into its opposing body section. Operated by its high-security external key under full control of the driver. Suitable for owner-drivers or applications where the driver can be relied upon to operate the lock.



The slamlock is primarily designed for couriers, multi-drop delivery drivers and any operations where a driver may be regularly in and out of a loading area throughout the day. The L4V Slamlock safeguards against the driver forgetting to lock the doors. Once the door is shut it locks automatically and can only be opened using the L4V Slamlock key, dramatically reducing the chances of theft.
