|Publication Date:||1 February 2017|
Note: Nothing in this standard supercedes applicable laws and regulations.
Note: In the event of conflict between the English and domestic language, the English language shall take precedence.
Purpose. To determine door system theft resistance performance.
Applicability. This procedure applies to all passenger cars, light duty trucks and medium duty trucks having swing-open doors, endgates, and sliding side doors, and can be used to evaluate any body-mounted, movable, glass systems (doors, quarters, sunroof, etc.)
Remarks. This test determines the ability of the door locking system and the movable window system to resist attempts to gain forced entry into a vehicle. This test procedure describes two very specific test methods, but depends on the test and requesting personnel to investigate and evaluate other potential theft test methods and to obtain any "equipment", as necessary, to perform additional tests. See B1 in Appendix B of this document.
