Van security?

Post by Cliffy » Sun Jun 28, 2020 10:27 pm

Howdy chaps, I was wondering what people have done to secure their vans? I work away a lot so living in hotels with tools in the back, I remember a few years ago we had a contractor staying with us and thieves broke into his caddy via the back door, they just butchered the door to get access to the lock mechanism and opened it, I want to try and keep a clean look on the van or is a giant lock my only option?

Appreciate this won't be much help but unfortunately it's a difficult one. We have found with our work vans (various manufacturers), that if 'people' want in, they will get in. Usually, as you have said by butchering the doors.

Tool safe's etc help protect what's inside but by the time they get that far the worst of the damage is done.

Unfortunately the visual option seems to be the best deterrent as the vans without them appear as easier pickings.

I was up late last night looking at the van vault floor draw Seems like the best compromise to keep the load space clear
