Why choose Armadillo?

The Armadillo van lock is a unique locking system which prevents forced entry to vehicles. Externally fitted to rear and side doors, it has two parts which interlock, joining the vehicle door to the main structure. It cannot be prised open and it is angled to deflect blunt force blows from a hammer or other tools. British Gas have been using this lock for almost a decade and have had zero successful break-ins. This cost effective vehicle lock is a must for protecting valuable cargo.

Armadillo is corrosion tested to BS standard EN:60068. Its surface treatment covers the internal and external parts, preventing corrosion and giving exceptional durability and longevity.
