Photo Release -- STRATTEC SECURITY CORPORATION Introduces World's First Codeable Padlock
MILWAUKEE, March 3, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STRATTEC SECURITY CORPORATION (Nasdaq:STRT) announces the introduction of a new, high security padlock that operates with your vehicle key. Users simply select a GM, Ford, or Chrysler compatible padlock, insert and turn their vehicle key, and the padlock will be permanently coded to their key! The user need not carry extra keys, remember a combination, or thumb through an endless ring of keys searching for the right one. In addition to 1-Key Convenience, the padlock features a rugged cover and weather-resistant lock shutter, solid zinc core, SAE hardened steel shackle, automotive-grade, 6-tumbler lock cylinder, and thousands more unique key-codes than standard padlocks. "Padlock users appreciate the simplicity of 1-key convenience," says Michael Long, STRATTEC's Director of New Market Development. "And they value the extra security of knowing only their vehicle key will open their padlock." STRATTEC estimates that its padlock is compatible with over 88% of the light trucks on the road since 1998, and is also compatible with select Sterling and International truck keys. The padlock will be available through participating STRATTEC authorized distributors, which may be found at STRATTEClock.com.
