Patented Security Push-Button Latching System
Patented Anti-Twist Push Button Design
If a product is locked, the push button can still be pushed without de-activating the latch. Tuffy’s anti-twist feature overcomes a major vulnerability of typical push button locks while keeping it convenient to use.
US Patent No. 6,564,602 and 6,964,184.
Patented Latch Mechanism
This allows the box to latch shut without being locked. The patented heavy duty latch mechanism features 1/4″ & 1/8″ thick metal components. It offers tremendous strength compared to other latches constructed with thinner gauge components or weak hook latches.
US Patent No. 7,140,649 and 7,513,541.
Tuffy’s New High Security Key
Tuffy’s pick resistant lock offers security similar to the vehicle’s original ignition key. Other products using tubular keys can be broken into by simply punching out the center pin. Products with inexpensive, 5 tumbler, single bitted flat key are easily picked.
Two Point Welded Striker
The steel striker is welded with a two point 1/2″ solid steel pin. Other manufacturers cut corners and easily compromise security by fastening the striker with weak hardware and only connecting the pin on one side.
Higher Security Cam-Lock System
Superior Engineering for Added Security (Patent Rights Reserved)
Cam-lock security is provided by a deadbolt hooking effect which eliminates the force applied to the actual cam-lock components. Others try to imitate with a look alike, but only Tuffy’s exclusive Pry-Guard system incorporates all the critical components. Featuring a high security cam-lock with a 10 tumbler double bitted key. Incorporating a large mounting shaft for increased strength.
Heavier Duty Design
Custom steel hinges are welded or bolted, not riveted, with stainless steel and 16 gauge carbon steel components. Featuring special Pin-Lock security.
Protection includes a specially formed and welded lid design incorporating neoprene weather seal, lock dust cover, and internal “O” ring protection. In addition, Tuffy products are powder coated, a process superior in every way to wet paint.
Lid edges are double thickness creating an 1/8″ thick steel rim that offers extra strength during a break-in attempt.
Increased Weld Strength
Exclusive Weld-Lock design featuring tig & mig welds make Tuffy’s construction stronger than other products that only use mig welds, cheap spot welds, or weak rivets.
