I fitted a type 46 handle to my motorhome two weeks ago. I agree with all the comments above regarding the fitting being straightforward if you are careful. It works well as a handle for entering the motorhome but there is one thing that concerns me. There is a lot of leverage if a vandal were to pull hard on the closed handle. My wall construction is aluminium/polystyrene sheet/plywood interior and I reckon the handle could be pulled out enough to open the door - destroying the whole side panel in the process. What do you others with this handle feel about that? Am I just an old worryguts?
I fitted one, with the extra clamp thingy (That fastens through the door) to hold the handle / security arm in place.
It's called the Security 46 Pro £82.95
This is definately the way forward as there is no way anyone can lever the arm out when it's locked in place on the door.
One word of caution, re. the fitting. Make sure your van is sitting 100% level (Back to front & side to side) because if you don't, you'll never quite get the thing to close perfectly without rubbing.(I didn't check it and wish I did!)
Easy to fit though, just look out for wires and be aware that your sink top, if you've got a rear kitchen, will catch on the inside spreader plate if you're not careful.
