Cobra provides new Thatcham approved dealer fit alarm for Ford Transit

Cobra UK is supplying Ford with a new Thatcham approved Cat 1 alarm for the Ford Transit.

Designed and developed specifically for the Ford Transit, the alarm system is now available as a dealer fit option on any Transit model from 2007 onwards, including the new Euro Stage V models.

It is the only Thatcham Cat 1 alarm system which can be fitted to a Transit featuring the ECO Pack, including the Transit ECOnetic, says Cobra.

The alarm is operated via the Transit’s central locking key fob and boasts a range of features that will ensure that customers protect their vehicles and valuable contents against theft.

These include: cab interior ultrasonic movement protection; protection to the cab doors, bonnet, rear and side load doors; emergency override facility via a unique PIN code; tilt sensor to deter tow away and wheel theft; high power siren with battery back-up; and a three-year warranty.

“Cobra has worked with Ford to develop a high quality alarm system which aims to provide van customers with both a theft deterrent and vehicle protection,” explained Andrew Smith, managing director of Cobra UK.

“It can be fitted to the highly popular Transit ECOnetic models and is equipped with a tilt sensor which ensures the alarm activates as a deterrent to the vehicle being towed away or the wheels being stolen.”

Ford dealers can supply the alarm priced at £208.33 plus VAT, with an all-inclusive fitted price available on application through individual dealers.
