    We are seriously looking at getting one of these for drills etc. in the van not a site one I think that you can bolt them down. Welcome opinions on them and tips from members.

    I've got one in my van. I keep my MFT, other test gear and some power tools in there. It is bolted down. It is another barrier if thieving scum get into your van.

    All seems pretty tough. I'm sure they could drill lock but it would definitely slow them down.

    Thanks for the advice, most of the time the van is quickly broken into tools taken and off they go.

    I had a VanVault in my old L200. Its brilliant. Some scumbags managed to force the hatch on the Trucktop cover, but couldn't get at anything in the VanVault.
    VanVault also comes with a length of steel armoured cable with bullet ends that gets locked to the Vault. The length of cable can loop through anything that cant go inside the box.
    Seriously, just get one, its worth it for a couple of hunded quid just to not have to bring your tools indoors every night. And you can park you van in Tottenham (sorry Tottenham) and still have your tools there at the end of the working day...

    I've got a sentribox and they are solid. Mine has 2 double deadlocks built into it and a protected hinge as well, also bolted with 4 m10 round head blots through the floor and a steel plate. No way that it's coming out without a fight and the locks are well protected from most methods of criminal access attempts! Would hate to loose the keys though:D

    Had van emptied twice whilst contracting up in Leeds years ago. Would loved to of had it wired up to something juicy to give the fookers a surprise.! After that always used a van vault!

    Has anyone had the unfortunate situation where they have had their van broken into and the thieves have left emptyhanded as they have not been able to get into it?
