KIT UP THE OZZIE WAY: Opposite Lock's popular range of 4x4 accessories are now available in South Africa.

HEIDELBERG – Conqueror’s range of Opposite Lock products is now available in South Africa after proving its mettle in the Australian Outback.

The range has a range of popular accessories for South Africa, suitable for 4x4s and other vehicles. They are available in South Africa through Conqueror dealerships and some four-wheel drive fitting centres.

Opposite Lock was founded in Sydney, Australia, and sent down roots in that country’s 1970s motorsport scene before making the shift to 4x4 gear and accessories in the 1980s.


Philip de Vries, MD of Conqueror, said: “We believe South African off-road enthusiasts have a need for truly world-class accessories to enhance their vehicles.”

The range available in South Africa includes steel replacement bumper bull bars, Tough Dog suspension, Lightforce driving lights, Mean Green recovery gear, and a selection of winches and tyre-pressure monitoring systems.

Opposite Lock’s product range includes accessories for the most popular brands of 4x4 and off-road vehicles. They are immediately available in South Africa – see their website for more details.
