What is a Van Slam Lock?
A slam lock is exactly what the name suggests..... Once your vehicle door has slam shut it will automatically lock.
It is primarily designed for purposes such as multi-drop deliveries, couriers, and any operations where a driver may be in and out the loading area of their van throughout the day and requires control over the security of their goods.
Having a slam lock fitted exceeds standard van security as it resolves the problem of ever forgetting to lock your van again which would have previously left you open to opportunist theft.
They are a popular upgrade for nearly every van manufacturer in the UK including Ford, Vauxhall, Peugeot, Citroen and many more – find your van here.
How do Van Slam Locks Work?
Installing a slam lock for additional security provides an additional locking point to your van with a dual benefit. It not only acts as a visual deterrent with a pleasing appearance but also physical security.
Van Slam locks work by de-activating a van’s factory-fitted door handle and installing an additional surface-mounted lock to the van door. Although the original handle stays in place on the door it will no longer function, only working if the new slam lock key is used in the new lock.
The new automatic locking mechanism upon the door closing safeguards against the driver forgetting to lock the door, providing maximum security. A slam lock will also only open the door you wish to open, unlike factory-fitted locks which reopen your whole vehicle leaving of areas of your vehicle vulnerable.
Why Choose to Install A Slam Lock?
In simple terms - for added security to prevent opportunist theft.
One of the main elements that contribute to vehicle theft is human error by doors being left open. Factory fitted central locking systems unlock all van locks at the same time, including the load area. These will also remain unlocked until the central locking is reapplied manually, leaving the contents of your van vulnerable. Installing a slam lock removes this vulnerability.
Slam locks also contribute to lower insurance premiums in most cases. Van insurance companies work out your costs based on risk. The bigger the risk that your van will be exposed to theft opportunities, the higher your insurance premiums will most likely be.
Since 2016 *over 43,000 vans were stolen, that’s an average of 30 vans per day with a further *117,000 vans broken into over the same period.
