Trusted Partnership

Proud to Partner with VAN GUARD, founded in 1976, Made In Britain. Through continuous innovation and development VAN GUARD have cemented their place as leaders in the vehicle security industry. Quality and value for money, guaranteed.


As specialists in Van security, we understand that our aftercare, is as important as the product and the fitting itself. We provide both care kits as well as aftersales support and advice. Peace of mind. For a long time.


Although the option is there, the process of fitting aftermarket additional security, requires specialist skills and equipment, in order to achieve the precise nature of installation that is required. Also consider that the installation process requires permanent modifications to your vehicle, which if done incorrectly can cause irreparable damage to your van doors. This is expensive to rectify, and also potentially may nullify your warranty, if your vehicle is under one. If you want the peace of mind additional van security brings, call the expert fitters at Key Safe Automotive Locksmiths on 0161 388 1588 and we’ll provide a quote.

  3. VAN SLAM LOCKS – The next most popular aftermarket security fit after deadlocks; slamlocks will automatically lock the van door when shut. This is ideal for those transporting high value goods, or multi-drop drivers. Slamlocks will also allow access to doors independently, meaning, using the key to open the side door where the slamlock has been fitted, will not automatically unlock the rear door, leaving less chance of opportunist thieves striking. VAN GUARD slamlocks are made with a quality grade 304 Stainless Steel, supplied with a high quality security key made with solid nickel, designed for ease of use, but stronger and more resistant to lock picking. Slamlocks are specific to each make and model of van, therefore bracketry is bespoke, ordered and installed by Key Safe Auto Locksmiths – authorised fitters of VAN GUARD products. Call us on 0161 388 1588, for your no obligation quote.

  4. VAN SLAM HANDLES – Factory fitted plastic door handles are often identified as weak and an easy entry point for thieves. Slamhandles add increased protection and security to this vulnerable point on your van. VAN GUARD’S range of slamhandles are a stainless steel replacement for your plastic handle, powder coated in a hard wearing black finish. The slamhandles come with a slamlock style locking mechanism, which is located either into the handle, or separate, depending on the OEM handle. Supplied and fitted by your local approved VAN GUARD specialist, Key Safe Automotive Locksmiths. Call us now on 0161 388 1588 with details of your enquiry, for your free no obligation quote.

  5. FORD REPLACEMENT LOCKS – A must for Ford Van owners, the Ford Replacement Locks are designed specifically as a high security direct replacement of standard factory fitted drivers door locks for the Ford Transit MK8 and Transit Custom. Renowned as vulnerable attack points, standard factory fitted door locks have become a target for thieves and prone to being picked and the cylinder turned. This unlocks the van and allows quick and easy access to the cab. Furthermore, access to the cab is all that is required to unlock and steal the contents of the back load area. VAN GUARD Ford Replacement Locks are made from stainless steel, anti-drill and anti-pick, designed to stop the grip and spin method of entry used by thieves. They can be keyed to any other VAN GUARD Locks fitted on the vehicle and are often used in conjunction with slamlocks, deadlocks and loom guards, to provide an extra layer of security against thieves. Call us on 0161 388 1588 with details of your enquiry and we will be happy to provide you with a no obligation quote.

  6. VAN LOOM GUARDS – Historically thieves have cut vans wiring looms in the hope that this will unlock the vehicle, especially Fords being particularly vulnerable. Despite the recent security upgrade, which has stopped doors unlocking following the wiring having been cut, wiring looms are still being targeted regardless, resulting in expensive damage. VAN GUARD loom guards are a low cost, yet highly effective security upgrade, which are often used in conjunction with other aftermarket security products to give you added peace of mind and protection. Call us on 0161 388 1588 with details of your vehicle and we will be happy to advise you of the best product for you and provide a no obligation quote for the supply and fit of your loom guards.

  7. ANTI-PEEL BRACKETS – The increased installation of security locks on Vans has made way for the recent “peel and steal” method of attacking van doors to gain entry, allowing access to the contents of the rear load area of your van. Anti-peel brackets are armoured brackets which are a low cost yet effective form of protection against this type of attack. Anti peel brackets are fitted on the opposing side to where the hook or deadlock is installed. Where the hook/deadlock provides a high level of protection at the point the where the door is most vulnerable, the anti-peel bracket stops thieves attempting to peel the door away from the opposite side to where the hook lock is installed. They can be fitted to both side doors as well as rear barn doors and when combined with a high mounted Hook Lock, Anti-Peel brackets will substantially increase the durability of both your vans side and back access points. For more information, call us on 0161 388 1588, no a no obligation quote or advice.
