Key fishing or letterplate fishing is a technique burglars use to get hold of your keys, purse, handbags and more without even having to enter a property!
They simply push open your letterbox flaps and use a long hooked rod, similar to a fishing rod, to ´fish´ for your keys and handbags. Meaning they can then use the keys to just walk into your customer’s property and help themselves to anything they want before driving off in their car!
The UAP Hidden Fix Letterplate Restrictor Shroud will stop hands getting through your letterbox and either hooking your keys, or opening your lock. This simple but effective device is 14.5″ long and stops the inner flap opening more than 40 degrees and so stops unwanted hands being able to manoeuvre a rod inside. This Letterplate Restrictor Shroud features the impressive Hidden Fix technology, meaning that it doesn’t leave any visible fixings on the exterior of the home and further protects it from being simply removed from the outside.
The PVD gold, mirror polished and satin stainless hidden fix letterplate shrouds are made from 316 grade stainless steel, and is part of the UAP Nanocoast range. The UAP Nanocoast range of products are specifically designed for areas which are within a 25 mile radius of the coast, or within 5 miles of highly populated industrial areas. The identity card slot have been salt spray tested to ASTM B117 for 2,000 hours, and comes with an industry first LIFETIME coating guarantee, as the products will not pit, rust or corrode no matter what environments you put them in!
Letterplate Restrictor Shroud Extensions
To overcome people being able to manipulate the thumb turn using straps from the outside, we have developed an letterplate shroud extension arm on the hidden fix letterplate shrouds.
They come available as either left and right handed, depending on which side the thumbturn is on. This letterplate shroud extension arm fits into the hidden fix letterplate shrouds and it is extremely difficult to get any wires around it to open the thumbturn. We currently have these in gold, silver and white (colour matched to the letterplate shrouds).

At UAP we are constantly striving to improve on the products we already supply as well as develop new, pioneering ranges and practical product solutions.
With an in house testing centre and product developer, each stage of the development process is thorough, from the initial design right down to the final product. In house 3D printing technology allows for further and more precise advancement of our products which are then expertly manufactured and put through stringent testing conditions using in house test equipment – ensuring all products are designed to the highest standards:
UV Sunlight Testing Machine
Used to test the colourfast of plastic and anodised products, the UV machine measures the stamina of the letterplate restrictor shroud finish, testing how quickly it will fade in sunlight. It does this using UV lights which the products are left under for 2000 hours.
Salt Spray Testing Machine
This machine tests the corrosion resistance of the letterplate restrictor shrouds and many other products. The salt spray cabinet produces a corrosive environment, by releasing a dense saline fog into the chamber which the products are exposed to. This creates accelerated corrosion to the product and allows us to test how well the product would stand up in harsher environments. Aluminium based products are tested to ASTM B117:2005 for 480 hours, where we offer a 5 year inland guarantee. Stainless steel products are part of the Nanocoast range, and are salt spray tested to ASTM B117:2005 for 2,000+ hours, and we offer a lifetime coating guarantee on these products.
