LJB was approached to design and provide a hitch pin lock of automotive quality for use with the client’s patent pending anti-wobble hitch pin technology.
Designing a cost effective custom locking solution for low volume application required a unique approach to the mechanical mechanism.
LJB’s Product Solution:
LJB developed a unique locking mechanism that could be produced with no tooling utilizing an OEM quality lock cylinder and key provided by one of our strategic lock suppliers. In addition to the design challenges of producing the locking mechanism with no capital investment we were able to cost effectively source and assemble the prototypes for on-vehicle testing.
LJB is now the production source for the hitch pin lock and responsible for all component sourcing, assembly, and packaging of the hitch pin lock assembly.
