CORTEZ, Colo. – Tuffy Security Products, a leading manufacturer of secure storage for serious gear, offers four versions of its Heavy Duty Tactical Security Lock-Boxes – built for law enforcement professionals to secure valuable tactical gear.  These boxes are built to carry and secure a Model 870 shotgun, M-4 rifle and a complete set of body armor.  Tuffy offers lock-box fitments for Chevrolet Caprice, Impala, Malibu, Dodge Charger, Ford Crown Victoria, Interceptor models, plus other vehicles which offer the adequate space.  Additionally, custom Heavy Duty Tactical Security Lock-Boxes can be built to the customer’s specifications, with all of the features of the standard models.

The lock boxes are designed to fit into the trunk well of police cruisers, and provide easy access to gear, while assuring very high levels of security.  These boxes are manufactured in the U.S. from 16-gauge steel featuring tab-loc welded construction with ¼” (6.35 mm) thick steel latch components and tough structural top cross supports, and integral hinge tab blocks for added security.  As with all Tuffy Security Products, the lock boxes feature complete weather seals to combat moisture and dust intrusion, as well as stopping rattles and squeaks.

A standard pick-resistant 10-tumbler double-bitted lock with Tuffy Security Products’ patented Pry-Guard II locking system is built into the security box lids, and will endure severe duty repeat use, while deterring theft.  The Tuffy Heavy Duty Tactical Security Lock-Boxes incorporate a convenient, patented push button latching mechanism which are similar to OEM automotive door latches, which provide a solid, rattle free closure, and provides convenient keyless entry.  Easily programmed push-button style combination locks are an optional feature.

A gas strut supports the lid while open, and the mounting points are reversible to enable convenient access from either side of the lock box.  The inside bottom and sides of the boxes are carpet lined to cushion contents.  A patent pending, quick access cable securing mechanism is included on both sides for flexibility in securing the lockbox to the vehicle (cable not included, available separately).

All Heavy Duty Tactical Security Lock-Boxes have a black textured powder coat finish for long-lasting durability.

Tuffy offers several useful accessories for the lock-boxes, including push-button combination locks, foam inserts (Pick & Pluck foam, solid sheets and Eggcrate foam sheets), no-slip Diamond Plate vinyl top covering and Auto-On LED interior lighting.

“Our Heavy Duty Tactical Security Lock-Boxes are designed to meet the everyday needs of law enforcement officers who use automobile cruisers,” said Tuffy Security Products Marketing Manager Chip Olson. “We have used our nearly 30 years of experience to engineer and build these lock-boxes systems to be durable, dependable and provide the organizational flexibility to make them indispensable in the cruisers used by the officers.”
