Tackling Tool Theft: NEW ULTI Lock Hooklock for Vans is here
Van Guard Accessories' all-new, Gold Standard, Sold Secure approved hooklock is now here and it's currently the only van hooklock to have attained this prestigious security certification.
Ensuring that your van is secure is one of the main ways to prevent tools from being stolen in the current tool theft epidemic. With a van being broken into every 23 minutes in the UK and an average of £1,692 worth of tools stolen per break in, it is crucial that extra van security measures are utilised to deter thieves, prevent attacks, and secure the van.
To help tackle the continued threat of tool theft, British manufacturer of van storage and security products, Van Guard Accessories, have just released their latest generation of van hooklocks, the ULTI Lock Hooklock.
"Innovation is a long-established part of our DNA here at Van Guard and creating a product of this quality has been the result of a committed NPD programme spanning many months." Comments Emlyn Harris, Van Guard's Commercial Finance Director.
"With every product we manufacture, we start by listening to the customers which ensures our new products will meet their precise requirements head on. We have focused on an all-encompassing process from product quality to fitting instructions to service delivery, with this the ULTI Lock Hooklock delivers on all fronts and gives our fitting partners the ability to fit a truly exceptional product with market leading accreditation to back it up."
ULTI Lock Hooklock Features:
- Anti-drill side plates
- Anti-bump hook design
- Anti-pick, bump and drill cylinder
- Industry-leading Anti-snap lock case
To attain the Gold Standard, the hooklock was put through rigorous testing by the UK's premier testing and certification house for security products, Sold Secure. Testing encompassed a number of popular break in and brute force methods including: hammer and chisel, drill attack, snap as well as case manipulation, all of which it passed to Sold Secure's Gold Standard.
Van owners or fleet managers looking to increase their van' security by adding the ULTI Lock Hooklock to their vans will need them to be installed by an approved fitter to ensure optimum function and warranty.
