Cap Locker

Our resident 4WD expert Jason Lock talks about the history of the diff lock and how Uneek 4x4 has developed a new Cap Locker.

We talk about the effects of a factory LSD when you fit a traditional diff lock and how the cap locker will enable the vehicle to retain the use of the LSD.

We look at the changes to the design, which will make the cap locker easier and cheaper to install and also more reliable.  We talk about the design and testing process that the Cap Locker has gone through to be able to bring this product to market.

We talk about what models will be available now (Suzuki and Landcruiser) and also what will be next as well as some of the new bull bars, followed by Subaru and Prado lockers.

Another great Australian manufacturing story about a product that has been wholly designed and manufactured in Australia!

Not really. There is only ARB which I have and dislike and the elocker as far as selectable lockers go. TJM still doesnt make a locker for Dana 44s TJ. The elocker unlocks and relocks as you go from forward to reverse, which is not ideal. The ARB bearing jornal is to short ,would be so easy to fix. Shims should be under the carrier bearings but instead are outside. Basically the ARB could be made a lot better but they cant be bothered. I actually bought a TJM locker for a D44 but the pinion didnt touch the crown wheel. Seem I had bought the first one in the world and it was wrong. I had to eat humble pie and fix my ARB clutch gear which had stripped. The ARB clutch only engages by 1.5 mm. WTF. I would love to buy a Cap locker but suspect I may be waiting a long time. As TJM still hasnt made one WTF. Come on Uneek I hate my ARB with avengence. I have had my front one out 5 times in 9 years as it leaks air with insufficient carrier bearing preload.

Guess they are marketing a 'Uneek' product. A locker that retains your lsd. While a front diff at this point would mainly be another product fighting for a space that's already competitive.

Well 90% of patrol owners do the front diff first, so I think they missed out on that one!

GU Patrol? ETA?
Website says expected release of 30th Nov for rear diff. Front diff's don't look to be in the lineup on any makes yet.
