Autosleepers

Post by Tengah74 on Sun Aug 20, 2017 2:06 pm

Can anyone suggest a way of securing the side sliding door from the inside ( Sussex Duo/Warwick Duo) ? Just another security measure on top of all the others!!!

Hi Tengah (and lots of others!  smile!)

Can I suggest a better title to the thread?

"Autosleepers" gives no clue to the query you have, whereas if you had said something like, "How to secure sliding door?" you would be likely to get a lot more responses.  up!

Hope this is useful.

Dave - can I suggest an improvement to the forum configuration?

Tengah (like lots of others) put the word "Autosleepers" in the title, and the words "Side sliding door" in the "Description" field. That would be completely fine, except that the forum software is configured so that it only displays the Description in small text in the thread index. If you look at the thread itself, the Description is not displayed ANYWHERE! That's why for years I have called it "the field that nobody sees".

Hence the suggestion (made several times before) that the forum layout should be altered - either so that the Description field is not offered when someone creates a new thread, or so that the Description is actually displayed in the thread itself.

Ah, that one again!!!  shrugg

Thanks Mojo - I didn't think to look this time. If you use "View posts since last visit", as I and many others do I presume, you would never see it!!

Unfortunately the Mods don't have the permissions to modify any such features, but I agree with you entirely - there's no need for it.
I don't know if it can be done, but Roli is far more familiar than me with the innards of the forum (and a lot smarter!  rolleyes) so perhaps you could draw his attention to it. He may then be able to contact Admin (who has personal problems at the moment, so isn't able to visit the forum as often as he would like).

Dave - to be honest it's such a minor irritation that it's not worth raising with Admin specifically.

If at some point in the future, Admin is upgrading the forum software, it might be looking into then.

Why not double lock the door? As far as I know a double locked door cannot be opened without butchery of the inner (or outer) skin.

The OP does not quote the age of the vehicle, but my 2013 build Duo has double locking and perhaps a bit
naively I am assuming that all AS X250 / X290 vans have it as standard.
