    And above all, do something to make the cab doors more secure. The obvious options are a Hykee replacement cylinder (no good for LHD) or internal deadlocks such as Heosafe. If you have an alarm linked to the central locking system, I would suggest a Hykee replacement cylinder at the very least.

    There are a number of threads on here about security enhancements for the Transit Mk7. Searching on "Transit" and "Tibbe" is probably the way to find them.

    Glad youve got it back .....fairly common to find them parked up not far from where they have been removed from (saves them buying a scanner to find IF and where a tracker is fitted)

    Transits (along with many others ) standard security is frankly woeful ....

    lock pick for standard Tibbe locks is less than 30 on fleabay

    YouTube

    A hykee (high security locks is available for a little more) failing that they just remove the plastic trim and twist the whole assembly with mole grips to operate the central locking and dead locks .

    Quick plug into the obd port and alarms and immobiliser etc are disabled .

    The only effective ways to make YOURS less likely to be nicked than the next one along is to use layers to make the scrotes have to work hard for what they want ....

    They dont like hard work OR taking time to remove yours AND increased chances of being caught .

    Disklok (ideally modified by welding to make it nigh on impossible to remove without grinders etc )

    OBD relocate

    Fuel cut off

    Electrical cut off

    Mount a numberplate on the roof in a position that will trigger ANPR cameras on the motorway (normal number plates may be swapped)

    just basically make it a pain to remove .


    As ever IF they want it they WILL get it ....

    BUT might just look and choose the next one along that hasnt got loads of hard work attached .

    Common method used to try and remove diskloks is 'peeling'....

    Few welds and some extra metal mean it's really going to be hard work to do....
