Why use a parking lock or parking barrier?

How many times have you pulled up to park in your designated parking space and someone else has parked there already?? How annoying? With a very simple to use thatsmyspot.com.au parking lock, you can stop this happening immediately. Just install either a manual or automatic parking lock. Only people who either have a key if it is a manual parking barrier, or a dedicated remote control if it is an automatic parking barrier, can make the barrier go up or down to allow access to park. When you want to park in your space, the parking barrier lies flat to the ground so you can park your car on top of it. When you are not using your parking space, then just raise your parking lock, and it blocks others from using your spot.Back to top

Why would you choose a manual parking barrier as opposed to an automatic parking barrier?

Purely personal preference, convenience and cost. The automatic parking barrier is operated by a small remote control, so with the push of a button, you can raise or lower your parking lock. You don’t have to get in and out of your car. With the manual parking barrier, you need to physically get out of your car, unlock the parking lock with a key, and then drive into your parking space. The same thing occurs on the way out.Back to top

What would I use speed bumps and end caps for?

Don’t know whether you vehicle is far in enough in a parking spot, or where do you stop before hitting the wall?

If you’re having difficulty seeing where to stop, a speed bump or end cap will provide physical guidance to parking – you’ll feel the speed bump or end cap, and know to stop. They are much easier to install than concrete end caps, and can be readily removed and relocated if you want to use them somewhere else.Back to top
