Vauxhall Vivaro / Renault Traffic Break In Part 1
22nd May 2018

Its becoming an well know issue now with break ins to 2014+ Vauxhall Vivaro and Renault Traffic where access is gained by simply drilling a hole on the back door to gain access to the central locking motors to open the doors even if slamlocks are fitted it doesn't stop the problem.

We are looking in to methods of preventing this as you will see in Part 1 and Part 2 of these articles

First of all we recommend having internal shielding fitted which encloses the vehicles internal handle mechanism by a high grade stainless steel shield, which protects the latch and assembly. We highly recommend you add this internal shielding on this vehicle due to the common methods of attack.

Why Are My Deadlocks Not Straight ??
18th May 2018

A question we get asked many times when a customer comes back to collect their van after having deadlocks installed is why are they not straight ? Which is a very good question.

Deadlocks work the same way as house door locks do and must be installed at a 90 degree angle, any pressure on them to try and force the angle can cause them to malfunction, and because they are steel metal they cant be adjusted in anyway for any other angle, the issue is a house door is completely square meaning the locks will always sit at a straight angle which is what some people expect for van deadlocks.

Simply NO, this is not the case, all van doors internal skins are all different angles, looking from the outside the front door panel is flat, but the part that matters is the inside skin the lock case attaches to, and the lock cylinder will then only fit to a 90 degree angle to this, if the inside skin is not a complete 90 degree angle then the lock will not sit flat and you will see a slight angle to the cylinder
