Trunk Locking System

Modular solutions for every requirement

Kiekert offers optimal solutions in modular locking systems for trunk lids and tailgates. Together with our existing NRC (New Rear Compartment) platform, our newly developed generic trunk latch family covers all market and customer needs. The trunk latch family consists of three variants, ranging from a basic solution to the maximum optimized opening and closing process. All three variants have a modular design and offer a wide range of options to cover all customer-specific needs. In addition to solutions for the side door, we are thus writing the next chapter in a decades-long success story.
