    Possibly a Fiamma Safe Door Frame Lock, not excactly brilliant key wise but another protection and easy to fit.

    We have a selection of various door locks, but whether they will fit your door, maybe a replacement barell ?????? Give Glenn or Ian a ring and ask them for some advice maybe.

    We sell loads of the first one, the lip where the self tappers go is between the door frame and the door edge hence you would have a job to jemmy it out as it is a tight fit.

    Hi,
    Any suggestions for securing two opening backdoors on a talbot express (with a dodgy 25 year old lock currently)?
    Locking the two doors to each other may not work if someone just pulls both doors hard enough at the same time....
    Thanks in advance,
    Alex

    Maybe fit a couple of bolts on the inside of one of the doors, top and bottom and a good lock on the outside on the other one, dunno just a thought.

    Selection of Fiamma locks etc here http://www.johnscrossshop.co.uk/cat...meras,-Seat-Swivels/Fiamma-Safe-Door-Security
