Transit Custom secured with deadlocks.

We do a lot of locks here at SEAA, but then can you really afford not to secure your vehicle?

This particular vehicle is a brand new Transit Custom. It had a tailgate and one side load door. It was completed on site for a local main dealer.

Again the locks used were L4V Thatcham accredited deadlocks. These provide an additional layer of security to help prevent unwanted access into the vehicle load area. Fitting these involves cutting a slot or mortice into the tailgate, and drilling a hole from the outside for the barrel to go through. Definitely not something for the faint hearted! Once all the drilling and cutting is completed, all the metal fillings are removed and the holes are rust proofed utilising a rust inhibitor. Finally the outer UV stabilised outer excursion is riveted in place, but only once a sealing agent is applied around the barrel to prevent water ingress.

Due to this vehicle having a tailgate two locks were required either side of the tailgate. The mortice "bolt" then fires into a specially designed reinforcing plate that locates discreetly by the vehicle rear lights.

Finally the side load door also had another deadlock fitted to help prevent unwanted access. All the locks were fitted on site, and yes in the rain, which is not ideal. But with some careful cleaning all the metal filings were removed. And as an added pre-caution the dealer valeted the vehicle straight away after completion.

Nissan Cabstar Conversion, lots of accessories!

You may think you recognise this from a previous feature. It is in fact another vehicle for the same customer.

Much like the previous vehicle, it had a long list of accessories, and a couple more adaptations. The roof had a Redtronic Megaflash LED 600mm lightbar. The cab had the same folding hazardous warning marker plate, the bulkhead an 12mm phenolic coated birch plywood protection with window cut out. And fire extinguisher in an external housing. It also had heavy duty lashing eyes fitted either side. The chassis was treated to heavy duty toolbox and finally a sliding hazardous warning plate.

This was all completed in the space of day. This meant minimal downtime for the vehicle. The end user carriers barrels hence the heavy duty nature of the bulkhead reinforcing and lashing eyes.

Custom adaptations for any vehicle, whatever the purpose or specification!

Transit Connect Reverse Camera

This Ford Transit Connect had a dedicated reverse camera system fitted..

The Camera is a direct replacement for the factory fitted number plate light. At first glance it is very difficult to notice the difference between the factory light (on the left) and our replacement unit. The camera gives excellent visability and even has an LED bulb to ensure the numberplate is still lit!

Again, the very discreet monitor is actually a rear view mirror. It performs exactly as a mirror, until reverse gear is selected. Then the image from the camera comes up on a 3.5" display in the right hand side. No unsightly dash mounted monitors that can be a distraction for the driver!

Ultimate locks, reverse sensors and hands free Parrot kit.

This Ford Transit had the ultimate in vehicle security fitted, not to mention a few other accessories.

The L4V Ultimate security locks fitted to this Ford Transit is the most secure option for your commercial vehicle. The locks can withstand attack for at least 20 minutes and can be fitted in around an hour per door. These locks were configured as a slam lock, as such, as soon as the door is closed it it locked and can't be opened without the high security key.

This particular vehicle also had L4V Thatcham accredited cab door deadlocks. These provide an additional layer of security to help prevent unwanted access into the vehicle cab. Fitting these involves cutting a slot or mortice into the cab door, and drilling a hole from the outside for the barrel to go through. Definitely not something for the faint hearted! Once all the drilling and cutting is completed, all the metal fillings are removed and the holes are rust proofed utilising a rust inhibitor. Finally the outer UV stabilised outer excursion is riveted in place, but only once a sealing agent is applied around the barrel to prevent water ingress.

Once the vehicle was secured, next up was some other practical accessories. This included supplying and fitting the very discrete reverse sensors. These automatically come on as soon as reverse gear is selected. The customer was used to having the feature on his old smaller vehicle and missed them dramatically when reverse parking. As such we retro fitted these for the operators peace of mind.

Finally a hands free system was installed. This gave to driver complete peace of mind with regards to calls and being legal. This particular unit (the Parrot MKI 9200), also allowed for bluetooth audio to be streamed between the handset and vehicle stereo. It also has a full colour display to show who is calling, contacts and the music title/artwork! The controls were mounted within easy reach of the driver and the display just out of eye sight but easily viewable.
