Tuffy adds new Vehicle Door protection!

ADD ANOTHER LAYER OF PROTECTION TO YOUR VEHICLE!

875_M_THFGenerally there are two ways a thief tries
to break into a car to steal it:

  • pry into the seam around the plastic door handle
  • punch the lock cylinder into the door

**breaking a window isn’t as popular as it’s an easy way to get noticed!

 Once the thief can access the lock rod inside the door, he can simply push it up and unlock the door.  We offer a custom-formed steel plate that, when installed inside the door, strengthens and guards the lock assembly!

These lock plates are made of heavy-gauge steel, are corrosion resistant, require no drilling or cutting, and each set comes with two window warning labels!

Tuffy offers door protection for over 50 different vehicle models from Ford, Dodge, and Chevy trucks to Honda Civics and Acura Integras!
Consider a set as a low-priced stocking stuffer for Christmas!

Demand for pickup trucks remains strong

While the automotive industry continues to see strong gains as a whole, much of these increases are due to the considerable demand for pickup trucks and SUVs.

According to recent information from Autodata, the seasonally adjusted annual sales rate reached 16.77 million units in May. The report noted that this is the third consecutive month where rates have been above 16 million, and May’s sales were 15.7 percent higher than the month before.

As the automotive industry continues to show strong growth, experts note that not every segment is having a strong performance.

“It’s interesting to look at where the winners and losers are,” said Alec Gutierrez, a senior analyst at Kelley Blue Book. “If there’s any weakness, it continues to be the small and mid-size sedan segments.”

Gutierrez noted that much of the gains have been due to the strong performance from pickup trucks. As the warmer weather generally brings on more construction, workers often purchase pickup trucks in high numbers to help feed this demand, and it appears this continues to be the case in 2014.

What were the top-selling trucks in May?
As trucks remain in high demand, that raises the question: What trucks do buyers want?

PickupTrucks.com recently released its monthly report on top-selling trucks, shedding light on just what pickups Americans were after in May. Here’s the list:

  1. Ford F-150 (68,520 units sold during May)
  2. Chevrolet Silverado (46,648)
  3. Ram Truck (37,131)
  4. GMC Sierra (18,326)
  5. Toyota Tacoma (13,876)
  6. Toyota Tundra (11,391)
  7. Nissan Frontier (6,662)
  8. Honda Ridgeline (1,425)
  9. Nissan Titan (1,166)

While the F-150 has been the top-selling truck for decades, sales actually fell 4.3 percent compared to the month before. However, Chevrolet posted a 7.8 percent monthly gain, while Ram Truck sales jumped 17.2 percent.

“Ram and GMC had particularly strong months and could be on track to do something this year that neither has done in a very long time – continue a string of back-to-back double-digit monthly sales improvements,” read the report from PickupTrucks.com.

Truck accessories in high demand
As trucks are currently in high demand, so too are accessories that improve their performance. For example, those looking for increased security for their pickup are encouraged to look into a truck bed box.

These products will ensure truck owners have a safe place to store all their gear. When choosing a brand, there are no other products as innovative and safe as Tuffy Security Products.

Ontario, California Truck and Jeep Fest this upcoming weekend

In a matter of days, thousands of truck and Jeep aficionados will be heading to Ontario, California for Truck and Jeep Fest. The event will be held June 7th and 8th and will feature custom trucks and Jeeps, a number of products available for purchase, food, entertainment and fun.

Event attendees can expect to see a wide array of one-of-a-kind vehicles, with truck and Jeep owners showing off their custom-built rides. In addition, the event will include a number of product demonstrations, manufacturers to talk to, installation discounts, factory-direct pricing and giveaways every hour. There will be more than $100,000 in on-site inventory available for purchase, so truck and Jeep owners should come ready to add some performance to their vehicles.

Trucks and Jeeps are unlike any other vehicles, and so they need custom accessories that will help improve their performance. For example, a Jeep Wrangler might have a soft top, making security an issue.

However, certain Jeep parts and accessories are available to help keep belongings safe. A Jeep owner is given peace of mind when they are away from their vehicle, knowing a security console is keeping their items locked away. The same unique product offerings are available for truck owners. For those who use their truck for work, a truck bed organizer is the ideal product for security and storage. No longer do truck owners have to worry about keeping their gear safe, as these organizers come equipped with strong locks. Not only will a truck owner be better organized on the job, but they essentially are given a mobile storage unit in the bed of their vehicle to keep their belongings safe.

Those attending the Ontario Truck and Jeep Fest are encouraged to look at security products offered by Tuffy, an industry leader when it comes to offering innovative designs for trucks and Jeeps.

Pickup truck sales strong in April

Pickup truck sales are typically popular in the spring, and that remains to be the case this year. Whether it’s the fact that more homes are being built or that automakers continue to innovate the trucks they are building, this category of vehicles is showing strong gains. This, in turn, may have an effect on the sales of security products such as lockboxes in order to protect items inside newly purchased vehicles.

According to a report from the Associated Press, the popularity of pickup trucks, along with small SUVs, has helped auto sales rebound in 2014. The news sourced used Autodata Corp. information to show that total sales was just under 1.4 million vehicles in April, marking an 8 percent increase from this time last year. The report noted that the sales translate to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of more than 16 million.

“April’s numbers suggest that car shoppers are still motivated to buy new cars, erasing any doubts raised by lackluster sales at the beginning of the year,” said Jessica Caldwell, a senior analyst with the car shopping site Edmunds.com. “The sales performance the last two months is more in line with what we projected for 2014, and there’s every reason to believe that car shoppers will continue to keep this pace.”

And while overall sales were strong, pickup trucks were leading the charge.

Best-selling trucks
PickupTrucks.com released its list of best-selling trucks through April. As this segment helped boost the automotive industry last month, pickup truck sales were strong.

“Both of GM’s truck brands – Chevrolet and GMC – had a good April, even though corporate executives have gone through several rounds of congressional investigations during the last two months regarding ignition switch recalls,” the PickupTrucks.com report said. “Likewise, Ram continues its strong – meaning double-digit – push into the full-size truck market, closing in on second-place nameplate Chevrolet. Finally, some prognosticators are a little disappointed with Ford, seeing only slight gains for the month and just a 4 percent gain for the year so far.”

Here’s the list of April 2014’s best-selling trucks:

  1. Ford F-150 (63,387 units sold)
  2. Chevrolet Silverado (42,755)
  3. Ram Truck (36,674)
  4. GMC Sierra (17,246)
  5. Toyota Tacoma (13,871)
  6. Toyota Tundra (10,217)
  7. Nissan Frontier (5,697)
  8. Honda Ridgeline (1,328)
  9. Nissan Titan (956)

Storage solutions for trucks
Pickup truck sales continue to improve, and therefore, more owners are likely looking for accessories. A truck bed box is the ideal solution for owners looking for more organization and security when it comes to storing their gear.

Whether they are on or off the job, a truck bed box will keep whatever an owner is hauling safe. And when it comes to keeping items safe in a vehicle, there’s no brand like Tuffy Security Products. Their truck bed boxes have a wide array of features that make them a notch above the rest.

Tuffy’s truck bed box is made to take on the harsh elements. It features built-in weather seals and fully welded aluminum construction, keeping moisture outside of the box. Aside from a bed box, however, Tuffy has some other great accessories for truck owners.

A lockbox installs easily into the bed of a truck for some added storage space that can be locked away. Owners will have peace of mind while away from their trucks, knowing a lockbox is mounted inside a bed, securing all their belongings.
