Custom Automotive Product Design - Rhinohide™

The Rhinohide™ Security Key

The Rhinohide Security key is a tamper proof Torx key designed specifically to be used with Rhinohide Armor® utilizing the armour lock system. Rhinohide™ contacted Idea to Life with the express purpose of producing a computer aided design (CAD) model for the key.

Project vision and approach

Idea to Life worked with Rhinohide™ to model the key based on a previously manufactured version. The key was designed to be manufactured with a conformal insert within an injection molded piece. Producing the key this way guarantees a strong and robust construction.


Idea to Life was able to assist the Rhinohide™ in the final phase of product design by producing a CAD model of the tamper proof key, leveraging manufacturing experience in the injection molding space we designed the key for strength, robustness, and manufacturability.


Rhinohide™ is armour for four wheel drives which protects your vehicle from scratches and dents when out in the bush. The key, combined with the lock helps protect Rhinohide™ from would-be-thieves by safety securing the panels to your vehicle.


Idea to Life worked closely with the client to rapidly iterate upon the design, keeping in mind the importance of strength and cost.
