Ford Hykee lock upgrades and why you need them. Ford Vans are the hardest hit vehicle in the UK where van crime is concerned. The methods of attack vary depending on the make model and year of the vehicle. Commonly the MK6 and MK7 ranging from 2000 - 2014 is picked open using a Tibbe pick. The Transit Custom that was launched in 2012 and MK8 that was launched in 2014 are both susceptible to the grip and twist method. This allows access to load areas and cab areas of the vehicle. The "Original" Hykee lock is a direct replacement for the Ford OEM lock. This takes only 10 minutes to install. ► Watch our video on how to install a Hykee lock here.
