Ford Chausson Welcome 630 door locks

Hi there,

We have just picked up our new van but have been alarmed to read about the easiness with which the Ford can be stolen. We have had an alarm fitted and additional locks on the cab doors on the inside. However we have been unable to find a suitable additional lock for the habitation door. We have seen these swivel locks which would seem to fit the bill but there is no ability to fit anything through the door frame as on the inside there is a fly screen fitted. Does anyone have any ideas.

Mick, we have a Ford Base and were parked a few years ago in a parking area at Lisbon. Alongside other, Fiat-based vans. Several of us were targeted but although you could see they'd tried the screwdriver in our lock they didn't actually get in.

Unlike a neighbouring van where the wife must have had her sleep disturbed, got down from the overcab bed to go to the loo, and became aware of someone sitting in the driver's seat under the bed!

So I've had no problem with the Ford.
