About Us

Opposite Lock was established some 40 years ago. Originally an Australian chain specialising in 4WD drive accessories started by genuine 4WD enthusiasts. Having such a premium product it was not long before Opposite Lock expanded from the shores of Australia into South Africa. Opposite Lock Africa offers the level of service and quality expected of the Opposite Lock brand. We offer a range of products catering to the off-road performance every 4×4 enthusiast looks for when considering vehicle practicality and appearance. Whatever you drive we have the best premium solution for your off-road requirements.

Opposite Lock Africa specializes in distributing premium quality brands throughout our network of over 500 stores, this includes Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique.

Focused on new developments Opposite Lock Africa offers  new brands every six months into the market ensuring we stay leaders in this field.

One of our top imported bands Tough Dog Suspension is an industry leader in innovative and quality suspension systems for just about every 4WD application. With 35 years in business, and a combined experience of over 100 years, Every Tough Dog product is researched and developed in Australia in their Sydney based headquarters.

In August 2019 Opposite Lock announced that they would be partnering with well-known 4×4 outfitters LA Sport. The partnering of these two industry stalwarts meant a larger offering for customers as LA Sport benefits from the extensive Opposite Lock dealer network.

The LA Sport product offering includes the LAS Profender suspension kits, LAS Bullbars, LAS protection gear, rear bumpers, behind bumper winches, towbars and snorkels. LA Sport are particularly proud of these products as they have been designed and developed here in South Africa and they are produced to LA Sports high standards and specifications by trusted local and international suppliers. The LAS range of Bullbars is a unique LAS design that has been developed in South Africa and is then built by a factory in Thailand. The only reason for this decision was because of the time saving that is gained when getting the product from the concept stage to a product that is ready for fitment.
