    poor lad, nothings worse than having your tools nicked, I never let my tools out of line of sight but I've also got the apprentice, I sit in the van while he brings it out all about saftey :) .

    That swag programme should still be on T.V, catching those theving little c**ts out.

    Ideally you should be able to cause them injury with the items they stole, firing a few 90mm ring shank would make them think about it in future

    i have to say the option to put a double length magazine on it is a good idea. on off on the battery is good aswell as the maintainance light

    ive been tempted to leave the van doors wide open before in what appears to be rather nice quiet residential areas but then in the back of mind something kicks in and remionds that the one time i leave them open is the one time some toe rag will nick my gear.

    always lock the van even if your away for only a few seconds because thats all its takes.

    hearing these stories always scare me that it will be me one day.ive only had my van about a month and before that i worked from an estate car and left no tools in it overnight or any other time if i could help it.
    now i have the van i load all my kit boxes into the customers house every day even the ones i dont need for the job as im too afraid of theives.i never leave them at the customers house overnight incase they get burgled so take them home every night.but this is a pain all the time.
    so ive just today had a sentri van box delivered...
    havent fitted it yet but does anyone else use these in their vans?im hoping then to leave the boxes i dont need in the van while on the job in the vault. not sure about overnight yet though.

    if its domestic work, lots of my clients offer to store tools in the homes, for the duration of the job, i think it gives them some comfort that you will return in the morning after gutting out part of their home(LOL), just not sure how insurance would work if the worst should happen?
