SnatchLatch, which says it makes the trailer security devices being used by the FBI and U.S. Air Force, has released an "affordable" new trailer door security and shipping container security device, including  a version specifically for Utility trailers.

The SnatchLatch HT provides bolt seal security on a broad range of heavy trucking trailers, containers, dry vans and reefers. Its stablemate, the SnatchLatch HTU, provides the same security for the proprietary handle systems on Utility brand trailers.

Constructed of heavy 10-gauge steel, the patented SnatchLatch security devices are easily installed over a container or trailer door’s existing handle and latch mechanism, the company says.

SnatchLatch security devices protect the bolt seal, hasp and padlock on trailer and shipping container doors, making it virtually impossible to tamper with the bolt seal or lock. They also provide tamper-proof security on stationary shipping or storage containers. All SnatchLatch products are designed to work without modifications to existing equipment.

The product line now provides heavy trucking security units compatible with security devices used throughout the shipping and truck transportation industry. Working with, not replacing other security devices, every SnatchLatch can be reused thousands of times.
