Quick-Turn, Near Custom Shielding Solutions Slot-Lok shields from Leader Tech represent a proprietary manufacturing process that increases shield design flexibility while reducing lead time and total product cost. Slot-Lok Circuit Board Shields achieve this by applying standardized manufacturing methods to produce what would traditionally be a custom manufactured product. The proprietary Slot-Lok manufacturing process has helped many companies reduce their design-to-delivery time by a factor of four without incurring tooling charges. An added feature of the Slot-Lok design is an audible click that confirms secure retention of the cover.
