Our St Neots based locksmith had a call out to Bedford where a courier had his key locked in the back of the van along with his parcels. The van had slam locks fitted, this means you need a key to open the door even when the van is unlocked, and when you shut the door it cannot be opened again without the key.
Slam locks are usually fitted to vans on the side and rear doors to give more security but also because they need the key to open them the driver doesnt have to keep locking the van every time he shuts the door. Only one problem if you put your van keys down in the rear load compartment and shut the door ….. you can’t open it again!!!
These high security van locks are incredibly hard to open however as specialist locksmiths we can gain entry. If you have locked your key in the van call us we will help.
