Types of Absolute Locks for Vans


When it comes to securing vans, there are various types of absolute locks available, each with its unique features and advantages. From deadlocks to slam locks, understanding the different options is essential for selecting the most suitable locking solution for your vehicle. In this blog, we’ll explore the types of absolute locks commonly used for vans, providing insights into their functionalities and applications.

List of Absolute Lock Types:

  1. Deadlocks: Deadlocks are robust locking mechanisms that require a key to lock and unlock, providing high-security protection against forced entry.
  2. Slam Locks: Slam locks automatically engage when the van door is closed, preventing unauthorized access even if the lock is not manually activated.
  3. Hook Locks: Hook locks use a hook-shaped bolt to secure the door in the closed position, offering reliable security against prying and tampering.
  4. Rep Locks: Rep locks feature reinforced locking cylinders and anti-drill plates, making them highly resistant to drilling and other forms of attack.
  5. ArmaDLocks: ArmaDLocks are heavy-duty locking systems that immobilize the steering wheel, preventing thieves from driving away with the van.


With a variety of absolute lock options available, van owners can choose the most suitable locking solution based on their security needs and preferences. By understanding the features and functionalities of each lock type, they can effectively safeguard their vehicles and contents from theft and unauthorized access.
