My name is Patrick, I am 43 years old and come from Maintal.

As a trained tool mechanic, I work on pretty much everything with wheels in my spare time. My first camper, a Citroen Jumper van, was completely planned and built by myself.

After it was broken into in France, I looked for solutions to prevent this from happening in the future. As the driver's door of our vehicle had been pierced below the door handle, I recognised the biggest weak point here. The hole simply activates the central locking system and unlocks the doors. So I constructed a plate that makes it almost impossible to reach the control unit. This was christened "PrickStop", which means "obstacle against pricking".

Since I am always looking for ideas and improvements on and in the vehicle, there will certainly be more great and practical things here in the future.
