Durasafe LocksLeading marine security products manufacturer DuraSafe introduced a unique line of locks, capable of being keyed alike, to secure boats, trailers and accessories at ICAST 2017 in Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center.

DuraSafe introduced receiver locks, coupler locks, a universal spare tire lock, swing away tongue trailer lock, cable lock and chain wheel lock, all with the ability to be keyed the same. These new locks build upon the popular locks already offered with keyed alike capability including the best-selling E-LOCK®, Swivel Mount Lock for use with RAM® Mounts and various models of trolling motor locks for bow and transom mount motors.

Consumers are now able to choose the locks they need and have them keyed alike adding the convenience of a single key that works on all the locks for their truck, trailer and boat equipment. In addition, they have the ability to purchase additional locks at any time, keyed to the locks they already own.

Dealers can now offer bundled keyed-alike security packages personalized to their customer’s needs and equipment requirements. For their own in-store security, dealers and retailers can protect display items such as electronics and trolling motors using a single key. On the lot, an entire inventory of boats and trailers can be secured with the same key.

DuraSafe products are manufactured in the U.S. with high quality stainless steel and marine grade materials. For more information about the DuraSafe keyed-alike lock line and other DuraSafe products, visit the DuraSafe web site: http://durasafelocks.com
