National Fleet Products Tuesday introduced its newest offering, the UFO+ Lock for rear and side vehicle doors.
National Fleet Products says the UFO+ automatically locks when closed, improving in-rout security compliance and operator convenience. Its sleek, tough, stainless steel lock body is drill resistant, and its shape makes it virtually impossible for tools to get a grip, the company adds.
“The UFO+ Lock is perfect for fleets with delivery staffs who are under pressure to unload cargo swiftly, while maintaining cargo security in an unmanned vehicle,” says Steven Peterson, president of National Fleet Products. “In a last-mile delivery scenario, speed, efficiency and security can mean the difference between winning or losing a contract, as well as the cargo.”
The company says the design of the UFO+ Lock makes primitive padlock-based and other hand-manipulated security systems obsolete. The lock remains in a fixed position and does not rotate, slide or detach. A single, reversible key quickly unlocks the door and can stay with the operator. Once cargo is unloaded, National Fleet Products says the door can be closed again and automatically locks without the use of the key.
“The UFO+ Lock essentially turns a vehicle’s cargo compartment into a tamper-resistant vault,” Peterson says. “And with its ‘slam-lock’ feature, vehicle personnel will never forget to lock the doors – if they’re closed, they’re locked.”
