Winterhoff's developers changed the Safety Box XL after the acquisition of ALBE Berndes and no longer used the hinge at the top, but at the front. This increased the overall stability of the box and made it very difficult for thieves to knock the hinge out of the box, according to the official explanation of the time.
However, the development had a decisive disadvantage: the forward folding mechanism meant that the Safety Box XL could not be attached to any combination - often the bumper of the towing vehicle just got in the way. Result: The modified Safety Box XL could not match the popularity of its predecessor. Numerous, mainly Chinese manufacturers subsequently copied a cheap alternative and sold it on the market - sometimes with the typical side-effects of 'price drop' and 'loss of quality'.Bünte now offers its own high-quality branded product: The Bünte Saftey Box XL has a professionally integrated hinge so that the anti-theft system can be opened upwards. In addition, the front of the box lock is also secured against theft by means of a steel go-theft. The material thickness and galvanisation are all stronger than the comparable competitive product, resulting in greater durability and weather resistance. The Bünte Safety Box XL comes in an attractive packaging and with a high-quality safety lock. THE BÜNTE SAFETY BOX The family of anti-theft equipment also includes a box lock without folding mechanism. This replaces the Bünte article number 40026 from SIMOL. Like its foldable counterpart, the Bünte Safety Box is made of hardened steel and an improved zinc coating. It comes with bolt and lock in attractive packaging.
