The L4V Hook Lock 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.
Designed and manufactured exclusively for Locks 4 Vans to meet the demanding requirements of commercial vehicle security
The lock case has a compact footprint permitting several fitting positions
60% less metal is removed from the structural part of the door during installation compared to other hook lock cases, resulting in the most effective security
Black lock case gasket supplied as standard
Lock kits are vehicle specific and contain all the required fixings, fittings and instructions to enable a technician to perform a professional installation
L4V cylinders, housings, and plugs are plated in highly durable satin nickel to maintain a long-lasting appearance and consistent performance
L4V black nylon external barrel trims supplied as standard to maintain the aesthetic appearance of the vehicle
Satin nickel-plated brass barrel trims, oversized black barrel trims, and angled black barrel trims are also available
So what's the difference between the S and the T series Deadlocks? The difference is the barrel and of course the key:-
S Series: The S Series key is more like your traditional Yale type key with the key cuts on the edge of the key, although it is a controlled blank and not one that is available over the counter in this country.
T Series: 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 and is stronger.
To Sum up, having either 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 screwdrivers in 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 either the S or the T series deadlocks 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.
Anyone that leaves expensive tools in any van with out any aftermarket security is asking for trouble. You may also be able to get a discount on your insurance for your van or van contents?
