If more than one Slam lock or a combination of Slam lock and Deadlock is required on the same vehicle, each lock will be keyed alike, so the same key will operate all the extra locks.
Locks-4-Vans are widely recognized as the UK's premier manufacteur and supplier of secondary vehicle security locks. The T' Series Slam lock has been accredited with the Thatcham approval and has been designed to give maximum secondary security to a vehicles entry point.
A slam lock takes over the function of the exterior door handle, and although the original handle remains in place on the door, it will no longer function. The door will now only open if the new slam lock key is used in the new lock. The turn of the new key will pop open the door just as the original handle did. The benefit of a slam lock over a deadlock is the fact the door will self lock every time it is closed. This function means that it is no longer the responsibility of the driver to lock the vehicle, it will be automatic upon door closure.
Locks 4 Vans offer two different versions of the slam lock, the S' Series and the T' Series. As an installation company, we only offer the T' Series version. The main difference between the two are, The S' Series doesn't have the Thatcham accreditation and the T' Series lock has a shutter that covers the key entry slot, this shutter keeps out dirt and salt.
The T' Series key has been designed to be the ultimate in security and strength. The key is manufactured from solid nickel silver, the large easily gripped bow is branded with the L4V logo signifying that this is an automotive product, unlike similar products the solid bow cannot be twisted off.
The T Series key is a security dimple type key with different depth holes drilled into the flat face of the key, this key is more resistant to picking, is stronger and has Thatcham approval. The key is also a 'controlled Blank', meaning the key blank is not widely available for cutting at local key cutting shops.
The other benefit of a slam lock over a deadlock is the ability to keep the door closed even if the vehicles original central locking is compromised. A deadlock will still allow a door to be opened up to 5mm or so if a would be thief bypasses your central locking system, whereas a slam lock will not allow the door to open at all as the exterior handles no longer operate.
To Sum up, having the T' Series lock on your van will improve it's security massively, most van break in's are probably done in seconds rather than minutes by taking advantage of a manufacturers weak point. That weak point might be people punching in screwdrivers under door handles, by breaking off big plastic handles or by smashing glass, the point is that if a van thief knows that they can break into a particular model van in 30 seconds with out making any real noise then they know that they can do it to every one of those thousands of vans up and down the country, this makes it easy for them to pop it open just to look and see if there are any tools or anything of value in your van. Don't make it easy for them, instead make it 10 or even 100 times harder with T series slam locks and they might as well carry on and pop open the one parked down the road from your van as harsh as that sounds for them.
