Success stories


When producing the motor home Ixeo I 736, Bürstner relies on SNAPLOC® plug-in connections.


The world is yours – with Bürstner and Böllhoff

Intelligent fastening of rear lights with our SNAPLOC® system.

By launching the new type I 736 of the Ixeo product range, Bürstner sets a new benchmark. Especially the exclusively developed rear lights are the focal point.

Initial situation


Quick bulb change – everywhere at any time

The innovative motor home line Ixeo I is defined by modern structural design, ergonomic installations and clever detailed solutions.  Rear lights characterise significantly the appearance of a motor home and can be considered as an important design feature.
The new lamps, consisting of combination of LED and classic filament technology, were exclusively developed for Bürstner. During a necessary bulb change or maintenance, they should be simple to remove and reassemble. In order to meet the individual design criteria, an “invisible fixing” strategy was also required.

SNAPLOC® plug-in connections - a simple system for complex requirements

SNAPLOC® is a two-part fastening system consisting of ball stud and coupling.
The ball stud forms or cuts a thread into the mounting dome of the motor home’s back wall. The coupling is mounted by simply being pushed into the rear light. Inside the coupling a ball socket is formed, in which the ball stud as the counterpart can snap into.



Push-on to assemble, pull-off to remove

Simple disassembly of SNAPLOC® makes for quick and easy lamp replacement.
When installed the SNAPLOC® fastener provides tolerance compensation for accurate alignment, is hidden from view in the rear light cluster while also decoupling any noise or vibration which might occur while driving.
In each Ixeo I 736, 8 SNAPLOC® systems with a diameter of 10 mm are used.

SNAPLOC® impressed Bürstner – and can be recently also found in interior roof lights of the Ixeo I.
