    Tools stolen and i saw them on my cctv must of cloned key fob
    lights flashed as they do on unlocking then doors where opened and tools and other things taken, off to get security locks for the doors. advise you get them fitted before it happens to you.

    Got a ford? If so they didn't have a key they used a pair of grips. Two twists of drivers door barrel and it unlocks all door and turns off alarm like normal key does. Check out YouTube if you have a ford and gets some extra security. Apparently you can also get an ecu update to help but ford charge you for this even tho it's there own design fault.

    Twunts still get round deadlocks! Managed to get mine open a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, on Scudo/Expert/Dispatch, there's a switch at the back of sliding door which unlocks rear when they prise door open about half inch. I've since relocated the switches on mine.

    Consider marking your new tools with a Smartwater kit. I believe it probably does reduce the chance they'll get pinched in the first place and increases the chance of prosecution/return if someone is caught with them.

    Not as effective as a dog with big teeth, I suspect, but then not much is...
