3c718287-9c3d-41d5-a9cf-d9fad594013a

Winner: AL-KO Secure Wheel Lock

What’s special?

Al-Ko have been a major player in the caravan industry for years and as with caravans at risk of theft, is it any wonder that its Secure wheel lock remains a must-have item for caravanners?

Today, you’ll find hard to meet a caravanner who’s not heard of Al-Ko and with good reason too–from chassis to lane-holding systems, trailer control to security products, the brand has been looking after adventure-loving families for years.

Having plenty of holidays is the reason many of us own a caravan. You’ve got the ability to get away at a moment’s notice, follow the sun and be pitched with a glass of wine a few hours later. Sadly, there’s other less salubrious folk who will always want what you have, and the challenge is to stay one step ahead to make sure you keep hold of what you hold dear–your caravan!

AL-KO Secure Wheel Lock

While it’s not a new item, Al-Ko constantly changes its secure wheel locks and Sold Secure tests them every 12 months to make sure they are up to the job. The Diamond Standard is the highest level for these type of products and that’s what the wheel lock has.

Experienced locksmiths test the products and Sold Secure has links with insurers and constabularies able to provide vital information concerning recent criminal activity and techniques.

These locksmiths ‘attack’ products to put them through their paces in real-world situations with tools criminals might have. When you buy a product with the Sold Secure Diamond Standard, you know you’re getting the best of the best on the market.

Besides its security devices, Al-Ko has added a lightweight chassis to its product portfolio and you can find this on some of the newest tourers.

This new technology is a game-changer, providing new caravanners with the opportunity to tow more compact and lighter caravans without stress.

Price: around £229
