Padlockable in both the raised and lowered positions

The AUTOPA Hinged parking post was originally patented in 1959, and over fifty years on, the AUTOPA parking post is still the preferred choice for the protection of individual parking spaces throughout Britain.

The extremely durable and reliable design ensures your parking space will always be available when required. The reflective, high visibility band also ensures your parking post will always be seen.

The AUTOPA parking post is push-down to lock and is unlocked by pressing down on the cap and rotating the key.
