    Has anyone got one of these on their van, could use an handle to get in, and thought it would be extra security but on looking at pictures of it , it doesn't appear to be openable from inside, so no use for using when in the van, is this the case?, otherwise it looks very reasonable at less than £60.

    I have the bigger one ,its a great aid for getting in and out with ease for me being a tad doddery. However as a security item it is only effective when used for when you leave the van as it folds over the door preventing easy access and locks securely. Roy

    Correct, can only be opened from outside. And an savvy thieves would know your "out" if it's locked shut.

    It just says look everyone I've gone out. Please help yourselves.
    Great if you need assistance getting in and out BUT if parked up I'd leave it OUT so they think you are in (y)

    If anyone gets my door open everyone will know about it.

    With a Fiamma your van will be wrecked or they'll break in through something easier like your cab windows :LOL:

    Really only use mine to help get in or out,most other times its folded back out of the way...and I have a great autowatch alarm should anyone wish to pay me an uninvited visit while I am out..Roy.

    Yes seen them too, but the handle would be a help, you would think it would be simple for something that combined the two, and as to leaving it out , it would be a danger to anyone walking past., think I will have to study a bit more(n)

    If they were that close they'd deserve it and if they missed it they'd knock themselves out on the long arm mirrors :ROFLMAO:

    Don't forget if you really like the idea of the night time security you would get using this in the closed and locked position then using the cab doors for entry and exit. Bit of a faff but would enable you to use it as an aide during the daytime..

    If you just need something to help you in/out why not just fit a bar/large handle?

    I have seen this done, mainly on aires, but in my opinion it is dangerous practice as you could be trapped in the m/h in the event of a fire.

    True and so you could if you had dead locks fitted to cab doors and fire was at rear of motorhome ..theres always a risk no matter what you do..so a risk assessment should be done before fitting any thing to your motorhome...

    No good for when you are in it but excellent for when you leave the vehicle and as a grad handle. Those who are worrind it signals you are out need to consider what happens when the crook realises you are out because he saw you leave the van in the car park or just knocks on the door! Not difficult to establish you are not in really and the handle across just provides another deterrent. Get one

    I only ever use cab doors when travelling as hab I leave triple locked & normally stack stuff against. Anyway you need the step out as bottom of door is over 24" off the ground.You wouldn't want to be getting out/in without the step. :LOL:

    We only use the cab doors as well, but still leave the hab door usable in case of emergency, just can't see why they couldn't make these handles so you could unlock them from inside same as the door locks they sell.
