Kiekert Introduces New Automotive LED Latch System

Kiekert AG has developed an industry-first LED door latch with a variety of unique safety, security and product-branding features. Compared to conventional warning-light systems, Kiekert's new system has an LED warning light built into the latch itself. The LED light is more clearly visible to other drivers and pedestrians when a vehicle's door is being opened and closed. The new design also is lighter and easier to install during assembly operations. LED color and brightness can be varied to enhance brand awareness, support vehicle design themes and adapt to individual customer preferences. Child- and emergency-lock options also are available and the system's door-latch LEDs can be made to flash to further enhance visibility and safety.
