UFO+ Lock addresses security issues

May 21, 2018
See how the UFO+ Lock from National Fleet Products improves security compliance and enhances operator convenience.

National Fleet Products has introduced its newest offering, the UFO+ Lock for rear and side vehicle doors. The UFO+ automatically locks when closed, improving in-route 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.

Padlocks, puck locks and similar mechanisms have long been used to secure commercial vehicle doors, but they present a number of problems, particularly in a high-volume delivery environment. Once unlocked, removable locks must generally be detached from a hasp or flange, and after a vehicle door is opened, the locks are often left hanging—or worse, placed on a bumper. Reapplying these “high-touch” locks is time-consuming, and if a hand truck must be re-stowed after delivery, even more time can be wasted.

The new UFO+ Lock makes padlock-based and other hand-manipulated security systems obsolete. It 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, the door can be closed again and automatically locks without using the key.

Every individual UFO+ Lock comes with a set of two high-security, 15-pin, multi-combination, reversible dimple keys and certified locksmith duplication certificates. Those purchasing both rear and side door locks receive a set of three matching security keys.

Fleets often complain that padlocks and other removable locks, particularly those with exposed flanges and hasps, can be too easily defeated with a pipe wrench, bolt cutter, sledgehammer or crowbar. The UFO+ Lock’s robust, flush-mounted, cast stainless steel structure and its dome-shaped design provide a challenging obstacle to any would-be thief.

This lock’s low-profile design integrates seamlessly with any vehicle make and model. The device can be used for applications on vans, service bodies and box trucks with side and rear double doors.
