TecNiq Announces the All New “TecLoq” Locking & Lighting System for Trailers

Posted By: Danielle Mapes (deleted) Community, Industry News,

Galesburg, MI – February 10, 2023 – With overwhelming excitement, TecNiq is announcing a progressive new product, the TecLoq, Box Lighting System. The TecLoq lights feature an all new, locking interface with a bracket design that locks the box taillight into place with no fasteners necessary. The TecLoq system will be available as the T88 - 8” Box Light, and the T89 - 4” Box Light.

The TecLoq design is based on TecNiq’s highly successful T80 and T85 box lights. Using these lights as starting points engineers redesigned the outer lensing to include upgraded optics. A new back was designed, able to accommodate the strength and fit necessary for the light to stay locked in. TecNiq engineers constructed the light back and body design to withstand increased shock and vibration, while still accommodating the need to be dust and waterproof. All electronic components for this light have been moved up under the lens to further the durability and longevity of this light, making it completely sealed – unlike many competitors in the industry. Finally, the bracket pattern was then designed to accommodate standard bolt-in lighting options for those needing immediate replacement on road-side or other locations a TecLoq light was unavailable.

TecNiq engineers were tasked with imagining not having to incur the additional costs of each light being bolted to the trailer. For some that might be savings on four bolts, four washers or more, not to mention install time. TecNiq’s focus with the TecLoq technology was to help manufacturers cut costs on lost hardware, decrease labor times due to things like dropping hardware, or having to recharge drill batteries. With the new TecLoq system, you simply line up the lights, slide and click.

“Optimizing the trailer building process was what it was all about for us [TecNiq]. One of the reasons for the design was to help those still using incandescent lights reap the benefits, cost wise, to make the switch to LEDs.”

- Mark Pruss, Executive VP 

TecNiq owners praise the TecLoq system as an evolution in trailer lighting, whereby manufacturers look to partner with companies like TecNiq to promote creative and efficient lighting design concepts. In a time where efficiencies and cost savings are a high priority for most companies, TecNiq’s new TecLoq system is a welcome invention in the industry.

The TecLoq series enables TecNiq to expand on their ever-growing selection of Stop, Tail, Turn lighting for the trailer industry. Leading the way with lensing optics, as well as some of the most efficient current usage LED lights - TecNiq’s Slim Line series of Stop, Tail, Turn lighting, as well as side marker offerings continue to set the standard for quality, durability and reliability.

As with all of TecNiq’s products, the new TecLoq system comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. The all new TecLoq System can be seen at this year’s NATM Convention and Trade Show at booth #641, or sampled by contacting a TecNiq Business Development Representative.
