Hinged Lockable Parking Post


The original Hinged Parking Post, patented in 1959, and the preferred choice for the protection of individual parking spaces throughout Britain. The durable and reliable design of the parking post ensures a parking space will always be available while the reflective, high visibility band ensures the parking post will always be seen. The AUTOPA Parking Post Type B is locked in place by pushing it downwards into the socket. It is unlocked by pressing down on the cap and rotating the key (supplied with two keys). The post can then be fully raised or lowered and relocked. For emergency access the AUTOPA Parking Post Type B has a removable hinge pin, which is secured with a Fire Brigade padlock (available separately).


  • Lockable in the up and down positions.
  • Internally spring assisted.
  • Made of mild steel tube.
  • Base plate of cast SG iron.
  • Weather cap of black polypropylene.
  • Overall base dimension 203 x 102 mm.
  • Hinged lockable posts have two bolt holes 18 mm diameter (for 16 mm bolts) at 152 mm centres.
  • Operational lift up weight for hinged posts is 4 kg.
  • For master suited posts, each post is randomly keyed. All master suited posts can be opened with the use of the master key purchased separately.
  • Available galvanized, galvanized and coloured or stainless steel.
  • Each post is supplied with two keys.
  • Fixed posts to match are also available.

Also available is the Type B hinged lockable post for emergency service access. Usually specified by local authorities or fire brigades, this post is similar to the hinged lockable post but includes an extended hinge pin (called a type B adaptor) to allow a fire brigade padlock to be fitted at the bottom of the post.
