Van Locks Ireland
Here at Autokey we have a wide range of sophisticated van locks developed specifically to combat the ‘new age thief’. Vehicle theft has now become a very smart and tech fluid process. The Irish Times has coined car thieves as getting “craftier” utilising electronics to break an entry. Intelligent criminals require intelligent systems to prevent and deter them from succeeding. With Vanlock, our list of top of the range locks Ireland aim to do exactly this. Listed below are our best selling locks, outlining the need for and function of such a product in van locks Ireland.
We have developed a high-tech security system which has a range of features to deter thieves while notifying the owner of the vehicle. Our Skybrake system operates by omitting warning alarms when the vehicle is tampered with. One to many “hits” on the vehicle will result in a full alarm sounding, while also notifying the owner by text or call via the accompanying app for Skybrake.
Deadlocks are a basic solution for anyone who carries a valuable amount of tools or load in the back of their van. A deadlock operates using a key which is separate to the vehicle central locking. The lock itself is fitted as an additional standard lock to your door. This gives the vehicle non visual extra protection.
The precious metals in catalytic converters make them top targets. Thieves will sell these parts on for profit. Light Commercial Vehicles tend to be the ideal target for this activity. Due to their high ground clearance, the catalytic converter is more accessible. Our Catlock product secures the catalytic converter in place. Once this is fitted, there is no locking or unlocking.

Gatelocks are an additional lock to the door of the vehicle. They operate with an external key, and are a covert solution. Gatelock come in three sizes: small, medium and large.
Small: Gatelock Small is the smallest of the family. Designed specifically for the protection of the cargo area of medium and small vehicles, it is easy and quick to install. This lock comes with the same key for side and rear doors.

This type of lock is Ford specific. In 2000 when the forth generation Ford Transit was launched, the ECU was programmed so that if the rear door loom was cut, it would unlock all the doors. Thieves soon noticed this vulnerability. Ford swiftly corrected it, but still today thieves try this method. This results in not only a costly bill, but the inconvenience of the doors not being able to unlock.
The Loom Guard is the original product designed to prevent this. Whilst many have copied our solution, no-one has matched it. A simple milled and coated aluminium block slots around the loom allowing minimum exposure when the door is closed – preventing a cutting tool to gain access through the gap to cut it. Constructed from solid Aluminium and coated in a white durable Powder coat, it makes the Loom Guard extremely strong. This offers great protection to an otherwise vulnerable area.
The Ford Connect also has this vulnerability with the front doors and the loom between the Cab door/wing. We have designed and produced a bespoke plate for the front cab doors that shields the loom from attack.
Our LoomGuard is a perfect solution to the problem and is only a small price to pay to protect your van.
The Van Vault is a large, secured tool box. Composing of secure storage which also includes a locking drawer solution for protecting hand and power tools, Van Vault is extra protection for you. If your van is without extra locking and a break in occurs, tools stored in Van Vault are unattainable. Acting like a safe, the Van Vault can not be moved due to its weight. Van Locks Ireland.
