41 Lowestoft-based Anglia Locksmiths has developed Truklok, a high-security lock designed for wide slatted roller shutter doors. It automatically deadlocks when the shutter is closed, offering greater conve
nience than a padlock for multi-drop deliveries.
The lock can only be opened with a high-security key but a master keying system can be used. This gives the driver access to his own vehicle and selected personnel access to a number of vehicles.
The impact-resistant alloy-steel lock was originally designed for use with the Henderson heavy-duty hook lock but has been modified to fit the Dover hook lock. Anglia Locksmiths has supplied around 700 Trukloks to date to customers including British Gas Eastern, Walker Smiths, North Thames Gas and Business Post.
The lock costs £117 (exVAT); it can be fitted in around 15 minutes.
