Keystone Automotive Operations has added Tuffy Security Products, a leading manufacturer of secure vehicle storage products, to its truck and off-road category. Tuffy is a portfolio company of Kinderhook Industries and a sister company of Bestop Inc., a leading supplier of Jeep tops and accessories.
“Tuffy Security is the leader for interior vehicle security. Customers across commercial, public safety and automotive enthusiast segments alike rely on their products every day to secure items inside trucks, Jeeps, and cars,” said Scott Percival, category manager. “We look forward to a partnership with Tuffy, as they’re a terrific addition to our truck and off-road portfolio of products and commercial business segment.”
Necessity is the Mother of Invention
Launched in 1989, Tuffy Security Products was born to serve a growing need – that of quality and security for outdoor enthusiasts long tired of having valuables stolen from their vehicles.
“The full line of Tuffy security solutions provide premium, superior protection against theft, enable safe cargo management, increase gear accessibility and offer the option of flexible keyless lock-entry for multiple users,” says the company.
Tuffy Security Products are reinforced with heavy-duty, custom steel hinges that are welded or bolted, not riveted, with stainless steel components, as well as a specially formed and welded lid that features powder coating and weather sealing to keep out moisture and dust. Lid edges are double thick for extra strength and the steel striker is carefully welded with a two-point ½-inch solid steel pin. Some items feature added conveniences like interior lights, storage trays and finger pull levers, showing that Tuffy has thought through every possible customer need and usage scenario.
