Shearline Locksmiths Locks in Van Security with Mul-T-Lock MVP1000

Bristol-based family-run business, Shearline Locksmiths has placed its trust in Mul-T-Lock’s brand-new MVP1000 vehicle security system to enhance the security of its commercial vans.

Mul-T-Lock’s MVP1000 is an entry-level locking system suited for almost any type of van door, both rear and sliding. It also has a robust aluminium body and a push-to-lock mechanism, for quick and easy keyless locking.

By installing the MVP1000 onto its commercial van, Shearline Locksmiths has instantly enhanced its van security.  As an active physical and visual deterrent, it acts to prevent theft, safeguard valuable equipment, and ensure the safety of its assets whilst in transit with its durable outer body.

Says Tom Davison, Locksmith and Company Owner of Shearline Locksmiths: “Unfortunately van crime is on the up which can have a detrimental impact on livelihood especially with the loss of tools and potential vehicles.  As a security specialist, protecting our van fleet and assets is critical. Mul-T-Lock’s MVP1000 is a brilliant compact surface-mounted lock. It is easy to install professionally with templates, packers and fixings supplied and acts as the perfect deterrent for commercial vehicles without the high cost of morticed deadlocks.”

Mul-T-Lock MVP1000 is a user-friendly system that can be installed without the need for expert help, making it ideal for most commercial vehicle models.  It is available for purchase either individually or as a pair of two keyed alike on Mul-T-Lock’s patented high-security MTL300 cylinder and control card for additional keys.

Jamie Jagpal, Mechanical Product Manager of Mul-T-Lock added: “Latest figures show that 11,714[1] vans were stolen in the UK over the past year, and £3.5bn[2] worth of equipment was taken.  With Police Forces and insurance companies citing the need for extra precautionary measures, we are thrilled that our locksmiths such as Shearline Locksmiths are proactively embracing MVP1000 to deliver advanced security measures to keep vans and assets safe and secure.”

The new system joins the popular MVP2000, designed for ease of installation.  As an active visual and physical deterrent, MVP2000 can be used in conjunction with default vehicle locks or as a retrofit to an existing vehicle and supplied with secure fixings.

The all-in-one, non-corrosive anodised lock body solution along with the solid steel locking bolt offered by MVP2000 is designed and tested to withstand drilling, picking and peel-and-steal. There are no hanging parts and there is a dedicated mounting bracket to protect the paintwork beneath the lock.
