Altor Locks, Meyer Distributing Partner for ICON Trailer Locks

Altor Locks, the Virginia manufacturer of coupler locks, and Meyer Distributing have partnered to make the ICON Trailer Lock available to their retail and wholesale customers. Meyer chose to offer the Altor ICON Trailer Lock because it keeps trailers safe.

“Meyer is pleased to be supplying one of the strongest coupler locks in the industry. After getting a hands-on look at the ICON coupler lock we were immediately convinced this was a product we needed to partner with. The quality and security is evident once you get your hands on it,” said Ben Johnson, category sales manager of RV Towing & Marine for Meyer Distributing.

Altor’s U.S. Patent 11,766,905 B2 was issued in 2023 for a lock specifically engineered to stand up to thieves using angle grinders, reciprocating saws, drills, lock picks, pry bars and hammers. Conventional locks on the market can be compromised in 120 seconds or less. The innovative ICON survived a concentrated attack with an angle grinder, lasting more than 1 hour and 32 minutes, using 14 blades and eight battery packs, the company said.

The ICON Trailer Lock is made with over 20 pounds of cast steel hardened to 450 Brinell. Common conventional locks use cheaper low carbon steel which is more malleable and vulnerable to saw blades and drill bits, the company said. In addition to the patented radial fin design, the ICON features a premium disc detainer lock core, extreme weather resistant seals and one-piece design for easy lock and go experience.

“Meyer’s strong work ethic, focus on customer service, technology and wide array of products have made them a trusted partner for automotive aftermarket wholesalers and retailers for 40 years,” said Larry Thomas, chief revenue officer at Altor Locks. “We look forward to working with this industry leader.”
