TriTeq Lock and Security

Winner in: 2004

The TriTeq Lock has drastically improved the vending industry’s forty-year-old locking system, using new technology and a fresh perspective to revamp an obsolete industry standard. The TriTeq Lock is an electro-mechanical lock and key control system for vending machines. It is a revolutionary development in the vending machine industry, replacing the outdated “T-handle” lock that had been the standard in the field for over forty years. TriTeq’s lock is entirely internal and provides no point of attack for theft or vandals. In addition, it implements an infrared contact-less key that requires no physical labor from operators. TriTeq’s lock will save major soft drink retailers billions of dollars over the next several years.
