Mul-T-Lock hits the breaks on rise of vehicle thefts

Mul-T-Lock is offering an extensive range of advanced products that provide security protection for commercial and private vehicles of all varieties. These solutions include lock cases, Thatcham-accredited slam locks, deadlocks, euro cylinders, camlocks and padlocks.

Last year saw vehicle thefts rise by a staggering 50% in the UK, with a further 20% rise in 2020 – the highest level in four years. With cases worsening during lockdown, motorists are being warned that they face a greater risk of vehicle theft now that individuals are making fewer trips by car and spending more time at home.

The cost of a lost or damaged vehicle can quickly mount up for any business owner, not only due to the replacement of the vehicle, but also down to the effect of doing business with a reduced fleet. With vehicle thefts on the rise, business owners are quickly realising that securing their fleet and its contents can be imperative to the operational stability of their organisation.

However, the RAC has reported that only 42% of new vans are produced with an alarm fitted as standard, with 5.5% of them not even offering the capability to have one fitted.

Automotive locksmiths are specialists in their field, possessing the knowledge on how to use, adapt and develop the right products on the market in order to maximise security for both commercial and private vehicles. From on-board diagnostic port protectors through to anti-scan wallets, there are a number of solutions available to create strong sales opportunities for locksmiths who work in this field.


Durability and robustness

Mul-T-Lock’s solutions for commercial applications have been specifically designed for durability, robustness and ease-of-use, in turn allowing motorists to access their equipment and goods without hassle.

Quality is also of paramount importance when it comes to automotive security protection. Wet weather and road gritting during the icy months can lead to vehicle locking mechanisms becoming rusted and damaged with the potential for failure. However, Mul-T-Lock’s products are developed to withstand such occurrences.

Designed and manufactured to the highest specification and quality, each product is typically adapted to suit the market’s needs having evolved into heavy duty commercial offerings. Mul-T-Lock’s product range allows end users to ‘fit and forget’.

The ArmaDLock, for example, is designed to fortify the security of commercial vehicles, and in particular those carrying goods and equipment. Simple to use and install, ArmaDLock fits almost any type of vehicle door, both rear and sliding.
