    my kontiki is fitted with these DIABLOCK door bolts and they really do the biz.
    Covert Installations - Vehicle Security Locks
    after deactivating the bolt it will relock automaticly if the ignition isnt turned on or on and off within 30seconds to override the control unit.
    i must admit they were already fitted when i bought the van and i didnt realise how expensive they are.

    :RollEyes: On our Kontiki the Drivers and Passenger doors have Chub locks fitted. The entrance door has the normal lock plus a Hasp & Staple fitted with a special lock. :Wink:

    hi john, are the chub locks an extra or do they replace the standard door lock barrels? and is the hasp of the Mr Bean veriety.
    the reason i ask about the chub is the door skins on the sevel vans are notoriously weak and a screwdriver through the side of the lock, pushed sideways will unlock the door due to the poor design of the mechanism.
    this happened on our CI carioca.

    The Chub locks are an extra. They were already fitted when I bought the Kontiki. They DO appear to be well fitted. Although you cannot open them from inside. I don't know what a Mr Bean Hasp & Staple is???? It's the usual type fitted to a garden shed. It DID in the original pictures for the Ad have 2 fitted. The seller took the top one off to put on another Motorhome. :Angry:
