    I am about to purchase a 2nd hand MH from JohnsCross, before I do should I ask them to fit a Fiamma Security Handle before I take ownership? or are there better alternatives to this product?

    All replies welcomed.

    Fiamma security handle is a good anti theft device but it MUST includes the lock part on the door.

    the basic handle has the lock in the hinge and it just becomes a big crow bar without the secondary lock.

    the lock on the door secures the handle to the door so cant be used as a lever.

    basic version (note the keys)

    I have the basic one above (it was already on the van) and find it useful as a grab handle and an anchorage for a dog lead. Pretty useless as a security lock though, too much leverage.

    Hi Ollie. Just took delivery of our first motorhome and had one fitted. Give peace of mind security wise but no doubt an experienced thief would know how to get round one. We fitted it as an extra entry handle for our grandson who has difficulty getting in and out. Already paid for itself in avoiding tumbles :thumb:

    I suppose it might be useful if you need the handle to help you get in and out of the van, but for security IMO a deadlock would be much better. I also think those security handles look incredibly ugly on a van. :wub:

    We had one on our previous van, think it did give us a extra bit of security but mostly excellent to get hold of going in and out of the van, if it prevents a tumble it pays for its self time and again.

    Enjoy your new van, :Smile:
