A slamlock is a device that automatically locks the vehicle door immediately it is shut, without requiring any operation by the driver.
Utilising the manufacturer’s locking system, the Slamlock provides security by moving the existing cable away from the vulnerable handle, attaching it to the back of the Slamlock cylinder instead. Once the door is shut, it locks automatically and can only be opened using the Slamlock key, even if the central locking is off.
It is primarily designed for applications such as multi drop delivery, high value loads and applications where the owner/ operator requires control over the security of their goods. It is the function that appeals as much as the security.
Another major advantage with mechanical slamlocks is total control. Electronic systems often have either global (all doors) or area (load or cab) unlocking- this leaves the unrequired doors vulnerable until the auto relock action operates. Slamlocks do not have this vulnerability.
We fit Locks 4 Vans slamlocks which integrate with the vehicle manufacturers’ locking systems. This provides Maximum Security along with straightforward installation. They combine a genuine Security Slam operation with a high visual deterrent and a pleasing appearance.
All slamlock kits are designed with escape from locked load areas, via the manufacturers own internal exit mechanism in mind. This is an extremely important feature as it ensures compliance with Health & Safety at work and Corporate Manslaughter legislation.
Locks 4 Vans slamlocks are available in both S and T Series.
