It is easy to overlook the functionality of camera covers which can often lead to the use of metal snap-fit clips. During service, these metal clips can be forced and bent. If damaged, this could lead to a high risk of passengers hearing shakes and rattles above them. Metal clips, when serviced, are known to bend and deform in the automotive industry.
Nifco's simple and innovative design creates a seamless appearance in a smaller packaging space. Our integrated design allows for low ergonomic clipping and faster assembly cycle times at the OEM or tier supplier. Nifco's improved camera covers significantly lowers the inherent risk of NVHs after serviceability while providing a tool-less experience. Check out our two favorite designs below, snap versus slide.
Mount and secure the ADAS equipment onto the back of the camera cover. Push the appearance side of the camera cover and hear the clips engage with the bracket and snap into place. To service the ADAS features, slide the body of the cover to release the integrated clips. This results in damage-free clips with a positive user experience.
Nifco America's Camera Covers are not only designed to conceal the ADAS products but integrated fastening technology has been built into the camera cover and holding bracket. This simple feature only takes a handy flathead screwdriver to open the mechanical bond when servicing the hidden ADAS components. To attach the cover back to the ADAS bracket, lightly push to activate the technology's low ergonomic features to secure the cover.
