BAR NONE

It is all about protection, personalisation, form and function for Opposite Lock

Tough and Smart is the philosophy highlighted by Opposite Lock’s new Premium Steel Bull Bars which have been specifically developed for the Y62 Nissan Patrol, ISUZU D-MAX MY20 and QF Pajero Sport.
From the initial sketches, the Opposite Lock R&D team focused on ensuring that any addition to the vehicle’s was built to a standard that feels like it is part of the vehicle and shaped to fit smoothly.
The premium steel bars are Opposite Lock’s spin on traditional frontal protection, uniquely designed and engineered in Australia to complement and enhance each vehicle’s original aesthetics.
Opposite Lock explains that its engineers have designed these bars to offer maximum frontal impact protection with features that allow customers to personalise their vehicle with accessories that suit their lifestyle.
The premium steel bull bars have been designed to handle Australia’s toughest terrain, whilst keeping safety and the vehicle’s inbuilt intelligent systems at the forefront – representing the most reliable way to escape the everyday, in the true essence of being “Adventure Driven.”

Design matters
A bull bar’s primary purpose is obviously to protect the vehicle’s crucial components in the event of an impact, whether that be an animal or object strike, while supporting the accessories.
Fitting the correct one can, obviously, assist in avoiding such incidents from occurring in the first place, as well as maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the original design while improving ground clearance and underbody protection.
Opposite Lock is one of Australia’s longest established off-road accessory suppliers with its beginning reaching back to the 1970s. It says it has always serviced the varying needs of four-wheel drive adventurers, tradies, fleet and emergency services with a wide range of bull bars, suspension, roof racks, towing and other accessories.

At the same time, Opposite Lock understands the important benefits of ensuring the integrity of safety systems such as airbags, parking sensors, active cruise control and automated emergency braking remains intact.
Thanks to the incorporating of the high number of safety and tech features of the vehicle, Opposite Lock says with its bar you can be confident your vehicle will perform to ADR standards while being provided with the maximum protection for your vehicle and your family.
With high approach angles and rigid strength, this bar allows you to challenge the tough terrain and fit out all the accessories you need to conquer your journey.
All Opposite Lock bull bars are designed, built, and independently tested in accordance with ADR requirements.

The new guard: Y62 Nissan Patrol
At the heart of its design, the Opposite Lock Bull Bar has taken on the Y62 Nissan Patrol’s styling cues, combining its grand on-road stance with tough terrain capabilities.
Tasked with providing a slim fitting bar that works with the curves and shape of the Patrol, Opposite Lock’s design team have developed a contemporary bar that has been formed, folded, and engineered that performs when needed – but also looks the part.
Constructed with 63mm diameter tube and 3mm high grade powder coated steel, the Opposite Lock Premium Bull Bar provides the strength required for maximum defence.
Heavy duty over riders protect the bar against nudging, while the bar has been designed with clearance and protection in case of vehicle impact.
A central split air dam has been incorporated to help maintain airflow to the Patrol’s V8 engine and improve strength in frontal impacts.

The bar is also available with a central or three-piece protection plate to reduce the chance of engine damage in the event of a collision.
The Patrol’s technology platform has been integrated into the design of the bar, allowing for the forward camera and parking sensors along with the vehicle’s Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning systems.
Opposite Lock says the Premium Bull Bar has been engineered for airbag compliance to ensure that in the event of an accident, airbags are deployed and perform as required.

A new generation of tough: Isuzu D-Max MY20
Opposite Lock’s new premium steel bull bar for the Isuzu D-Max MY20 has been designed to handle Australia’s toughest terrain, whilst keeping safety and the vehicle’s inbuilt intelligent systems at the forefront.
Tasked with providing a slim fitting bar that works with the curves and shape of the D-Max, Opposite Lock’s design team have developed a contemporary bar that has been formed, folded, and engineered that performs when needed – but also looks the part.
Incorporating the high number of safety and tech features of the D-Max, Opposite Lock says you can be confident that your vehicle will perform to ADR standards while providing the maximum protection to your vehicle and your family.
