We see repeated posts on the Van Security Talk Group asking how people can best protect their vans against tool theft. The most frustrating thing about this issue is that it is not a problem with a single ‘fix’ – instead people often find that the addition of slam locks will not protect them against the van being cut open, or that a tool vault doesn’t stop the thieves peeling open the doors to take a look inside.
We were asked recently to give an interview about the issues around tool theft as we saw them, as well as some of the members on the group, by Commusoft for their business blog. They spoke to many other sources to compile the interview which helps to further highlight the problem we are currently facing.
