Oil Tank Locks
Fitting an oil tank lock is becoming a popular decision for increased security. Unfortunately oil is no longer 10p per litre, and the threat of oil theft looms over every household using heating oil. Plastic oil tanks are typically fitted with flimsy padlock points on the lids, which aren't sufficient to prevent theft.
We offer two oil tank locks: Tank Arm, and Spin Secure's TankLock. The main difference being that Spin Secure is universal but only protects one outlet on an oil tank, whereas Tank Arm comes in various models to suit different oil tanks, but it can protect TWO outlets, providing extra security and peace of mind.
