A Deadlock is a mechanical device fitted to a vehicle door. It operates by throwing a bolt into a receiver fitted to the opposing body section when operated by an external key.
Working independently from the manufacturer’s locking system, the Deadlock fires a bolt that hooks over either a bracket or into the door post, bracing the doors together. It offers the operator the flexibility to use the extra security when required, and when fitted higher in the door, it also protects against the door from being bent down.
As Deadlocks are under the control of the driver, they are generally only appropriate for owner drivers or applications where the driver can be relied upon to operate the lock.
