I have never ordered an Autolock on any application from them. Personally...I can't stand them, although Force V does appear to be the best version of that out there.

I don't use them on Schuco (Force V) either after trying them years ago when I first became a dealer. I ended up replacing all the auto-locks with cam locks and I now order them all with the trouble-free cam locks. With the average service call costing me $200-$300 in gas and labor, I can't afford to send guys out several times a week all over Chicagoland to adjust PAL locks so they close properly.
