Hi sometime ago someone suggested interior cab door locking in addition to the normal locks.........I think some kind of device from door to door inside, and also an extra easily fitted lock for the habitation door.

Does anyone remember the topic or the product ? and also does anyone know if there is a company that might do next day delivery if ordered tomorrow to be delivered on Sat ? or is that asking too much LOL

Thanks

First make sure you don't have deadlocks fitted or you could be wasting your money. Use the remote to lock the cab doors and then press the button twice more in quick succession to find out.

We bought some Nylon webbing and a metal buckle from B&Q for about a fiver all in. Sewed the buckle on at one end and loop the webbing through the door rests and close the buckle in the middle of the cab. That way if the door locks are forced/picked the doors still can't be opened.

The buckle is a slip type that can be unfastened in a hurry in case of emergencies. Because we have the blinds shut at night nobody can see it so they don't know it's there.

However, we got so blase about things last year in France & Spain we only used it about three times in 12 weeks of touring! It will probably be used from April until July in Italy though!

We rely on the extra Fiamma lock on the habitation door and We also put the alarm on "sleep" mode so we can move about in the van but it will operate if the doord are opened.

I also park near big Hymers that are obviously occupied by rich folk so footpads and ne'erdowells are more likely to go next door! Very Happy

I remember reading that someone threaded their seat belt through the door handles. Not tried it, to see if it would work.


You could get some ratchet tie down straps from Halfords, Keep a pair of scissors nearby for emergencies.
