Break in attempt… failed!  

A customer contacted Comm-Ply to report a failed break-in attempt to their vehicle, requesting a replacement barrel lock fitment. 

Van doors are constantly being challenged by professional thieves. Even though they may not gain entry, the vehicle is left in a damaged state. A costly repair for its owner but not as costly as the thief making away with expensive equipment that also results in downtime whilst it is replaced and a possible hike in insurance premium.  

Comm-Ply strongly advises having your fleet’s vans upgraded to help keep criminals out.
