Super Grip Lock
Super Grip Lock is a $10 security product that is industry tested and police endorsed, allowing homeowners, renters and travellers to protect themselves against intruders who could otherwise unlock their door. Even if the intruder has your key they can't get in.
It stops bump keys that are available online and open locked doors nearly as fast as a working key, and it requires no tools to make it work - just attach, wrap and firmly press the fabric together.
Super Grip lock attaches to and secures the deadbolt handle when it's in the locked position. This keeps the bolt engaged and stops anyone from unlocking the door at home or when travelling. Super Grip Lock requires no tools to make it work -- just attach, wrap and firmly press the fabric together.
Police Lt. Bryon, a 23-year police veteran who served in the Winston Oregon Police Department wrote, "This Strap can save your life. It's a Godsend for the travelling public and those who live in rentals."
So important that Lt. Bryon volunteered his home to demonstrate this product. He hoped it might benefit seniors, those who live alone, single mums, kids that are home alone when both parents work, college kids who live in dorms or rent an apartment and families, who could not otherwise afford the security they need to protect themselves from the growing number of intruders who can open locked doors.
The National Locksmith master locksmiths have been evaluating locks for the lock industry since 1929. They reported: "Even when using a working key and a pair of pliers the key broke and the deadbolt remained locked." They summarized their findings by stating, "There is an unlimited potential for customers and the $10 retail is definitely right."
The International Association of Police Chiefs fighting crime in various countries since 1893 introduced Super Grip Lock to law enforcement in the Police Chief Magazine.
Bump keys are and remain a national security threat that every family should know about. They open locked doors including deadbolts nearly as fast as a working key. They are easy to use and readily available online. Once the door is opened slide-bars or chain-locks are easily snipped or defeated with a push.
ABC San Francisco News Team verified these facts as the reporter with ZERO experience opened lock after lock with a bump key he had purchased online.
Renters and those who stay in a hotel or motel have an additional problem. The landlord/owners and employees are not always honest and have access to the key that opens your door.
Super Grip Fabric Lock U.S. Patent 6,182,485 was invented by Melinda Moore of Sweet Home, Oregon. She discovered if the deadbolt handle was held in the locked position that no one could unlock her door. Using a 1-inch wide, 19-inch long and 1/8-inch thick hook and loop fabric known for its durability and holding power, she invented Super Grip Lock.
