Van security

Guest 1217

Recommended Posts

So due to my setup I need to leave the van doors open while I am working. I am wanting to upgrade some of my equipment soon including a brand new powered reel and some new poles so I am now more aware of how exposed the van is to theft. I never really worried about the old rags and bucket before but will be a different story after putting a couple grand of new stuff in there. 


So what options are there for security if I need my doors left open? Insurance obviously first. I heard someone using a motion sensor alarm in theirs but not sure about that. A lot of my jobs are parked on roads and out of sight so any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.

Cut a hole and put a roller either in the door or in the floor so the hose can be pulled out with the door locked


I am trying to work out how to do this. Trouble is I have the main hose connected securely to a work belt with a lever tap. This works great for me as I have complete control over the water flow and I pull the hose from my waist which really helps round corners and when the pole is up. So I really want to keep the belt but obviously can't have it dangling, exposed out the back of the van.
