LOXX® - Since 1928 produced in Germany! This ingenious safety lock was developed as fastening solution for convertible soft tops in England more than 90 years ago. German automobile manufacturers wanted higher quality; therefore the safety lock was not imported from England, but manufactured in Germany by Schaeffer – today Schaeffertec – as “DER ORIGINAL-KNOPF” from 1928 till the end of the 1950s. Between the 1960s and 2013, the button was known under another name. Although it was Schaeffer, and later Schaeffertec, who manufactured and enhanced the safety lock with their know-how, due to a trademark dispute Schaeffertec cannot use that trade name anymore. Since 2014, following these trademark issues, Schaeffertec manufactures the safety lock under the trade name LOXX®. The place of production, as it always has been, is Germany. Since then, LOXX® is again available as “DER ORIGINAL-KOPF” – back to the roots! (See the section after the next.) Vintage car enthusiasts will love “DER ORIGINAL-KNOPF“ that was brought back in its original design. With this original button your vintage convertible will be brought closer to its history…eliably, but to release easily, this is a feature not too many fasteners have. With our fantastic LOXX® fastening system, in the non-fabric-version as a standard with completely bended teeth, the industry discovers a new way to connect stiff materials.
