AUTOTAP vehicle cybersecurity lock

(14 customer reviews)



Designed to work on most post-1996 U.S. light vehicles (car or truck) that have a fully accessible and functional diagnostic link connector (DLC).

To guarantee that the product will function as advertised we provide the customer with a practice plug.  The product will come locked to the connector thus establishing the fact that it works when we shipped it.


Many post-1996 cars and trucks have an Event Data Recorder (EDR) that collects and stores crash data.  Congress passed the Driver’s Privacy Act of 2015 which cites that the vehicle owner “owns” the crash data.  

Our goal is to empower you with a simple means to safeguard your data.  You have two choices. 1. Pre-Crash you can attach the vehicle cyber security lock.  2. Post-Crash you can authorize others to attach the lock.


I authorize the tow truck operator or any other entity at the crash site or impound facility to install the lock to my vehicle.


AUTOTAPLOCK® is a new product in the automotive space. It is a physical lock to your vehicle’s OBD-II port connector that is used to access the Controlled Area Network (CAN) and the Event Data Recorder (EDR) “black-box” data recorder. This lock enables you to control access to your vehicle’s data in accordance with state EDR statutes and federal regulations. Designed for U.S. post-1996 light vehicles (cars and trucks) that include a functional and accessible diagnostic link connector, normally located under the steering column. Conforms to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers global standard IEEE-1616. Comes with 2x High-Security keys. This lockout gives you the reassurance of knowing that you have control of crash data. The “black box? will still work as it is designed to. However, you determine when and whom sees the data (within State and Federal law) and thus, control how it is used. The owner of the vehicle is considered to be the rightful owner; however, courts can subpoena crash data. Crash data can be used in civil and criminal court cases. Go to AutoTapLock Compatibility Checker to check compatibility with your vehicle. Important Note: This product uses the same AMAZON catalogue product number assigned in 2016 to a different version of this brand. Thus, all prior reviews up to October 2021 are bogus. This product was re-engineered in 2021 using automotive grade nylon and future customer reviews will reflect the quality.


We are a U.S. Veteran-owned and operated small business with unique products and we like our customers.  That said, our goal is zero returns. To achieve this we provide a quality product and disclose to our customers prior to the sale that it may not work on every vehicle.  To increase the chances that it will work on your vehicle we provide a vehicle compatibility matrix ( of approximately 11,000 vehicles since 1996. The AUTOTAPLOCK® lock is U.S. Patented and globally standardized in accordance with IEEE-1616. If you locate your vehicle in the compatibility matrix this means that it will work only if the connector is functional and acceptable.  On many vehicles there are impediments such as covers and on many others the connector has been damaged. We cannot guarantee it will work on your vehicle because we cannot know the condition or accessibility of the port on your vehicle. OK, so what can we do?  We offer you the same high quality product at 20% less under our ZERO RETURNS GOAL. We simply want you to use it on another vehicle. You can call or send an email (386)506-8355 or We are here to help.  Next, if after consultation your satisfaction is guaranteed. If we cannot resolve your issues you may seek return of your purchase as for a refund, minus a 30% restocking fee (inspecting, testing, repackaging). Requests for refund will not be accepted otherwise. We cannot be held responsible for Goods damaged or lost in return shipment. Therefore, We recommend an insured and trackable mail service. We are unable to issue a refund without actual receipt of the Goods or proof of received return delivery.
