All APM-N upper housings are made of die-cast aluminum and feature front doors that drop down to a horizontal workspace for easy on-street repairs. The upper lock applies adjustable pressure to the gasket, and the coin slot can be fitted with a spring to help keep water infiltration to a minimum.
Zinc Tamperproof vault, shown right (45,000 psi) holds expanded capacity open cup or two styles of sealed security coin boxes (holds $65 in US quarters). Door can be easily removed without tools when open, facilitating quick repair or replacement. Lock is rear mounted to prevent pulling, tapered base prevents forced removal from post.
Iron Tamperproof vault has same features as zinc, but with added strength (65,000 psi).
(Both vault options offer a variety of high security and changeable locks and can be fitted with the POM SmartLock system.)
