About Us

Our Story

ShiftLock App Developer

The Problem

A BMW 528 XI had T-boned a Nissan Titan.  I was first on scene and given the BMW.  I hopped in and reached for the keys. Nope. Transported with patient, and I had no idea where to find the shiftlock.  Of course what was left of the wheel was turned and I had to drag it up. 

A few days later I was dispatched to a vehicle left on the side of a very busy highway….of course, no keys.

The Solution

I thought about the many times in my career, just having the vehicle roll would easily have cut down on frustration, and my time exposed roadside.

Soon after, I started work on the app.

The Towing Community

Support from members of the Towing community came flooding in. Words of encouragement from Moe Timcoe and Charlie Landfried and the partnership with the Facebook page Shift Interlock Releases.  Bill Trimmer’s assistance in designing the app logo we use today.  And, most importantly, the thousands of hard working Tow Operators out there that honor us by purchasing the app.



This app is amazing. I used to have to figure this stuff out on the side of the road which can be quite time consuming. I don't remember when I first got it but it has definitely made my life easier. I tell all the drivers I train to download it so they aren't constantly calling me to help them.

Joshua Adkinson

I brought this app two weeks ago. Today I took a call requesting wheel lift and dollies in my rollback because I knew I could get it into neutral. Most helpful towing app I've seen yet.


Great App for the $$$
I have had this app for several years and it has worked very well for me. Highly recommended!
