About

Truly a nondescript,beautiful, addition to any home.

In an emergency all you need is 11 seconds and your gun,knife or stun gun is in your hand.

The L3 is 13 inches wide,11 inches deep and 36 inches tall

Solving problems is what I do best.As a carpenter I have built several hidden safes into homes.Which got me thinking,what could I build that could go into any home,discreetly,to prevent theft?

The secret compartment is 7 inches wide,11 inches tall and 5 inches deep
The secret compartment is 7 inches wide,11 inches tall and 5 inches deep

First I looked at common household items that needed to be plugged in,like a table lamp.Then I looked into adding features like motorization,which brings out your inner nine year old.

Secondly,a 12 volt power socket with 2 place USB charging to free up outlets and to run any mobile car accessory(like laptop charging)

Lastly,much thought was put into making sure everything works when the power goes out,so I added an emergency light and battery bank. I  guarantee a full charge on at least one device plus 8 hours of emergency light while still opening and closing the safe 20 times.

A year of development and testing has gone into the L3 with great results.Kids from 3 to 16 completely ignore it. I called no less than 50 pawn shops,not one table lamp to be found,so not an object crooks covet.And every person I demonstrated the system to were in complete shock when the L3 opened.Mission accomplished.

I need your help to bring the L3 to the masses.Thank you for supporting small business and American made products!

Risks and challenges

My biggest challenge will be mass production while maintaining build quality.

Currently it takes 16 hours to build one L3,on a one by one basis.I need to streamline the process in an assembly line fashion.This will be a huge challenge but not dissimilar to what I've done in the past,I was the operations manager for an ultra high end door shop for four years.So I have a pretty good idea of what I'm getting into.

I will have to hire some help which,thankfully, I have a whole graduating class of woodworkers at a local college who can't wait to work on this project.

And lastly,time...There won't be enough hours in the day to run a company,build product,stay up on social media,organize shipping and inventory and sleep.So time management will be most important,along with delegating responsibilities to those better suited.

I have many years of experience working under extreme stress conditions and deadlines but most importantly as a father,I believe in the L3 with all that I am.Please help me keep kids safe!
