    Deadlocks should be standard but there not despite being standard on the Fiat Ducato van version.

    As I have said I don’t think any manufacturers are even allowed to supply a vehicle with doors that aren’t a simple one pull operation.

    Had these fitted by Harrison Locks of Worcester, expensive, but thought they were the best at the time.

    Even so, some numpty tried to “screwdriver” the driver’s door with on of these deadlocks staring him in the face, in Bournemouth of all places!

    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    I only lock mine when away from the 'van.

    No experience with Ducato, but I fitted Heosafe deadlocks myself to my Transit chassis coachbuilt. Very easy job.
    It looks as though you require Heosafe 12656 (but check - don't take my word for it!), like HEOSafe Type 12656 for Ducato 250/Boxer/Jumper 2006 Onwards - Lockable: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike and eBay - Page Not Found
    I bought mine from Germany through amazon.de - best price that I could find at the time.

    They can be locked in the closed position when leaving the van, unlocked but left in the closed position when on board (e.g. at night) so one extra operation if you want to get out in a hurry through a cab door, but no need to hunt for a key and find the keyhole.

    Not everyone has a crap van and not always easy to replace.
