CONCERNED GRANDFATHER TRYING TO GET PROJECT OFF GROUND -WOULD TRANSFORM SECURITY FOR WOMEN TRAVELLING ALONE
This is the story of a Grandfather who has travelled extensively. For years he has been quietly worrying about the safety of his seven grandchildren when they reach the age to travel. It has led to him developing an extraordinary lock that is in fact a brilliant security solution for women travelling alone, or wanting further security at home or in public toilets. The Easy Lock will be the lightest lock of its kind in the world that also allows individuals to open the door slightly whilst preventing forced entry protecting those most vulnerable. The Grandfather, Bob Fitzjohn, needs help with funding and is making an appeal to the public to support his venture, by pledging funds from just £2 at Indiegogo.com the crowdfunding website, venture due to go live 01/07/14. A total of £15,000.00 is needed to fund the project.
The Easy Lock is small and incredibly light, perfect for students, travelers, the elderly, in fact all of us! It will totally secure the door… whether that be a hotel room, B&B, rented accommodation, at home, the office or toilets. You are secure in seconds. The lightness of plastic, the strength of stainless steel.
Bob Fitzjohn has been working on his idea for the past year, and even visited possible manufacturers whilst on holiday in China. He has been driving his family mad developing prototypes of the lock at the kitchen table!: “I’m excited to be at the point when I can seek funding for the lock. It’s been quite a challenge finding manufacturers who could help me create a lock that could have the strength of steel with the lightness of plastic, whilst remaining aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It needed to be simple – easy to install and remove in seconds. I also wanted it to be inexpensive – to allow it to be available to all. If enough money is raised it can become a reality. It will be a dream come true if I can produce a lock that will provide safety for so many. I’m surprised that something like this hasn’t been invented before”.
Easy Lock will cost £19.95, with free postage in Europe, £4 worldwide. It is being developed in a range of colours, and will also have a choice of coloured pouch. The product, if funded, could be a very exciting breakthrough for the world of security.
