Ford Transit Custom Rep Lock with Bezel Fitted Essex
17 November 2017 | Admin
The Ford Transit Custom 2013-2017 has been under attack since it's release. The attack methods seem to be very consistent from a simple lock picking ( no damaged caused ) or the lock twist method. This twisting method is most common by placing a set of mole grips on to the lock cylinder and twisting it to the left. Once the lock has been twisted the doors simply unlock. If the vehicle is equipped with the standard Ford alarm this will also disarm under this form of attack, meaning you won't hear the alarm sounding.
You only need to take a look at Youtube or Facebook and find how quickly and simple this attack is to carry out. A thief can enter your fully deadlocked van in seconds. We have a good product which enhances the security massively on this vehicle, we install a new replacement metal door lock which gives anti pick pins ( very difficult to pick the door lock pins ) but we also go one step further by fitting the upgraded V3 bezel which stops a thief getting any form of grip around the lock cylinder.
This lock not only looks more sleek than the original, but it also proves excellent security. With it's enhanced securing method ( behind the door skin ) it uses a solid bolt to hold the lock in place rather than a simple push pin like the original. In Car Advancements offers a wide range of upgrades for the Ford Transit Custom such as door lock replacement, alarms and deadlock upgrades.
