Product Description

The CENTINEL C1 security post was specifically designed as an anti-ram, anti-theft device and was developed for the purpose of protecting vehicles, premises and property, unlike folding or “telescopic” posts, both useful in deterring the opportunist thief but offering less resistance to the professional thief or direct ramming.

  • Maintenance free
  • Base plate fits flush with the ground
  • Separate base plates available, post can be used in different locations
  • Keyed alike available on request
  • Drill and pick resistant lock
  • Locates and locks in seconds (important in bad weather!)
  • Base fits only 18″ below ground (avoiding mains cables and pipework, unlike telescopic posts!)
  • Does not use easily attackable padlocks
  • Accepted by all major insurance companies
  • Stops thieves using your drive as a loading bay
  • Post sits 67 cm above ground level

The CENTINEL C1 security post has been in use for over a decade and proudly boasts (with client information available) a ZERO THEFT RATE. All this from a post which requires no maintenance and can be located and locked in a matter of seconds, which, if it is raining or snowing, is very important.

Ease of use

The lock is integral and fitted at the top of the security post – simply locate and lock.

Peace of mind

The lock is graded CEN 5, this is the highest E.E.C. security rating, drill and pick resistant with a restricted profile key-way, this means the key cannot be copied by any other locksmith.

When you turn that key, an ingenious 10mm thick laser cut steel cam is located into what has to be the most highly engineered locking block on any security post available today. No pressure is placed on the lock itself.

Add to that, the fact that the Centinel C1 Security Post is the only post with a 5mm wall thickness that is fitted on the diagonal, in effect this means that in a ramming situation, the Centinel C1 security post is equal in strength to a wall thickness of over 10mm. Less weight – greater strength!

So remember, when securing your forecourt, show room window, shutter doors or driveway “it has to be CENTINEL”- the one with the proven record.



“This special security post will virtually destroy any car that attempts to knock it down.”

Auto Express

“This deterrent will have thieves puzzled longer than most safety devices, even if they come with a hack-saw or blow torch.”

  • To change the position of your post
  • To add a storage place for your post while not in its normal place (ie. the side of your drive)
  • Add another position on your drive when one vehicle is not there (ie halfway down your drive)

    Hi Grant,

    Thanks for coming back to me and for explaining the differences. Hoping at some point to come back to you with an order for some Noisekiller kit for my Defender.

    I’ve had one of your Clutch Claws in use for about 18 months and have recommended it to a number of folks. It’s one of the variety with the LED. I’ve high hopes for the well recommended C1 security post.

    Thanks again, Richard

    Many thanks for supplying a new Centinel Security Post for our trailer following an abortive attempt by some miscreant to unsuccessfully remove it.
    Despite a sustained attempt to remove the post from the ground, resulting in much damage to the lock area and other places, the post stubbornly refused to be moved despite the use of a jack!
    As such, it is disappointing to be ordering a new post for our trailer, but so much better than ordering a new trailer!
    Many, many thanks for producing such a superior product!

    Dear Sir
    With apologies for the delay, I enclose, as promised, a few photographs which show the attack your Centinel Post resisted.
    Needless to say I am delighted with the product!!

    In my position as Projects Manager for one of Britain’s largest leisure parks, it is rare for a new product to prove as good as is claims by the manufacturing company.
    The CENTINEL Post has proven to be one of those products that is as good as it claims!

    My Husband and I run a storage caravan site in Shefford, Beds. In the middle of August the site was left unattended for 45 minutes. In this time, thieves tried to steal three caravans. On checking the caravans later, we found one fitted with a well known Hitch Lock and the other a popular Wheel Clamp – both devices had been smashed off. The only other thing protecting our site was a Centinel Security Post positioned in front of our main gate. An axe or similar was used to attack the lock on the post (see picture) – on failing with this, a vehicle was used to ram the post and the gate – this also failed! If it had not been for the Centinel more caravans would have been on that, ever increasing, “stolen” list.

    As promised, This is a photograph of one of three posts protecting a forecourt.
    What happened took place within the space of approximately 3 minutes – a white flat bed 7.5 tonne lorry, stops in front of the entrance. There are three men in the van, one remains in the drivers seat, one jumps out and runs towards a parked vehicle, the third – holding a chain – runs towards a Centinel Post and proceeds to wrap the chain round the head of the post.
    The man with the chain shouts to the driver and the lorry starts to move. There then follows a loud bang and the chain rips through the head of the post and ……leaves the Centinel firmly locked in place!
    This whole episode was witnessed by over 7 office workers in the next building – on an Industrial Estate in Northampton.
