Security posts offer an effective method of helping to prevent vehicle theft. They are also prevent the unauthorised use of driveways for either turning or parking on as has been reported in the national press.
Different types of parking posts are available which include folding, removable or telescopic. The type of model you choose will depend on how strong you would like the post to be with the telescopic models having the greatest of strength. Fold down and removable posts also provide a reasonable amount of strength but are designed more as a deterrent to protection your parking space or area.
Telescopic posts have a more involved installation method versus the models that are foldable or removable and when not in use you need to ensure all types are folded down correctly to prevent damage to the post and your vehicle.
For added peace of mind there are telescopic models that have been designed for anti-ram, these are tested to Gold standard by Sold Secure and are ideal for businesses who wish to protect roller shutter doors as well as car dealers.

Folding parking posts are the most popular type and offer a cost effective method of preventing people from using a parking space without permission, it is ideal for home use or perhaps on an estate where parking is limited and you wish to protect the use of your parking space.
The second favourite is removable parking posts, these are also a cost effective practical driveway post and can be installed by any confident DIYer. There are also security posts that can be used with trailers and caravans to keep them secure.
Hitching posts are an alternative option when you need to secure a caravan or trailer, some of these models are fixed with some being removable. Combined with a hitch lock and wheel clamp it gives you that extra piece of mind.
