Coloured Sensors at No Extra Charge
No need to stick with black or pay extra for colour. We offer a range of 32 coloured sensors to match most customers needs. These are coloured and baked on in factory conditions for a lasting finish and will not crack as can happen with retro spraying. The sensors should also withstand things like automatic car washes. For help choosing which colour is right for you see our ColourMatch Chart.

Optional Nationwide Mobile Fitting Service
The Dolphin Parking Sensors are designed with DIY installation in mind but if you feel you do not have the time or skill to fit these kits we have partnered with a nationwide network of installers who can come to you at home or work. For further information see our Parking Sensor Fitting page.

How Parking Sensors Work
The system works by radiating ultrasonic beams covering the area behind your vehicle. The beams get reflected by obstructions behind your vehicle, and re-enter the sensors. The reflected beam information is processed to calculate the distance between your car and the obstruction.

As with the other systems the Dolphin unit is activated when reverse gear is selected. When the vehicle is less than 1.5 metres from the obstruction the audible alert will emit intermittent bleeps. As the vehicle gets closer to the obstruction the frequency of the bleeps increases. At 30 centimetres from the obstruction the bleeps become a continuous solid tone, warning you that you should stop the car.

if you wear a hearing aid we would recommend that you consider the DPS450 kit which also has a display, as opposed to this stand alone audio in case the the audible pitch of the alert is incompatible with your hearing aid.

Swap Socket Feature
All of our kits now come with the new watertight swap socket feature based 6 inches from the sensor heads, it makes installation quicker and easier. Also should you ever have a problems with faulty sensors or accident damage in the future it facilitates easy replacement without having to remove the bumper again and rewire from scratch.

Adjustable Brainbox - New!
Our new adjustable brainbox means that you have full control over the detecting distance that your parking sensors have from your car. This is particularly useful for cars with low bumpers or bumpers that are angled at the ground

Adjustable Brainbox

Optional Wedges 
This system comes with optional angled wedges, giving greater flexibility according to the shape of your bumper.

Excellent Product & Service - 12th April 2012 - Mr Leith - 27/03/2014
Just a note to endorse this product. I fitted a DPS400 system to my Ford Mondeo some 3 years ago and can honestly say that it was the best 50 I have spent on my car. Excellent product and the advice from your customer service team who I recently contacted was great.

The sensors work brilliantly - 23rd March 2012 - Mike - 27/03/2014
Hi - I ordered these parking sensors to help my wife park our Mk4 Astra cabrio. Just a bit of feedback on the product and service from your firm.... I placed my order as you can see on Tuesday 20th, you despatched the following day and I received it safely yesterday Thursday 22nd. Fitted this afternoon the whole job, done at quite a leisurely pace, took less that 2hrs and I didn't even have to take the bumper off ! The sensors work brilliantly - product does exactly what it says on the tin. The sensor buttons on the bumper look great too - you wouldn't know they are an after-market fit. Based on the very comprehensive data on your website I ordered your "silver" which is a is an almost perfect match for the Astra which is painted in Vauxhall's "Star Silver". Great service, great product and very reasonable price ....many thanks ...

infinetly better than the after market Citroen system - 27th February 2012 - Michael Frain - 27/03/2014
Dear Parking Sensors Just to let you know Dennis replaced the Citroen Rear Reversing Sensors with the Dolphin System ordered. They are brilliant, infinetly better than the after market Citroen system. They give great driver information / confidence when reversing even for hard of hearing as myself. Dennis was so helpful and his work much appreciated. Kind regards

Thanks for your excellent service and fitting service - Ken Woods - 09/02/2014
This afternoon I have had a set of Dolphin front sensors fitted to my 62 reg VW Passat Estate this follows having a set of rear Dolphin sensors (supplied by you) fitted a couple of weeks ago. As previously the installation technician was Graham Clegg (of Wakefield) and again he was excellent. The rear sensors were fitted after a neighbour (who I had recommended Dolphin sensors) had had a set of front sensor fitted this morning by Graham. In the past few minutes I have recommended Dolphin sensors to my brother in-law (at Hatfield, near Doncaster) who is considering having rear sensors fitted to his motorhome. Thanks for your excellent service and fitting service. Attached are images of my car after the sensors were fitted please feel free to use on your web site if you wish. As you did not have an image of a 62 reg Passat Estate (with tow bar fitted) on your web site, I sent you images of the rear sensors on 17th April. Carlton (Nr Selby). - April 29th 2013

Cannot recommend highly enough - 12th June 2012 - Karla - 27/03/2014
Hi I just wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed I am with these brilliant sensors. Not only was the website really informative and easy to use, Dennis the fitter was absolutely fantastic - travelling to wherever my car was at the drop of a hat and having stock on board despite me ordering the wrong item, the sensors themselves look amazing. No one will know the weren't factory fitted. And all for a snip of the price I would have paid elsewhere. Cannot recommend highly enough. Well done for an excellent service.
