Latch for air gap with the locked trunk

In the EU we have a lot of non intelligent 22kW plugs (for example: CEE 32A three phase). For these plugs we had to use a mobile wallbox. The wallboxes are expensive and I searched for a solution to keep the stuff in the locked trunk while charging. With this latch called "Lufty" I can lock the whole car including the trunk and I have an air gap for the cables:

I can use it with the automatic and manual closing trunk, the car is fully locked, no warnings on displays after closing.
This latch is normally used for venting the car when a dog is waiting in the car to avoid overheating. Unfortunatly the manufacture website is german only: http://www.lufty.eu. If there is interest for this little gadget you can send an email to [email protected]
