Does this look familiar?
Well, that’s me, five years ago.
My phone was stolen in a crowded place in Gothenburg, there were three culprits and they did the “dancing trick” on me. One distracted me while another carefully picked out my phone and gave it to the last in the back. Then they all suddenly disappeared around the corner into a dark alley. After tracking the pickpockets down with GPS and arriving with two police cars, we couldn’t do anything. Without having a warrant, the police was powerless once the culprits reached their safe-house (In this case their apartment). As a result, I never got my phone back.
- Leo, Inventor of C-Safe™ Pocket Lock
We found that existing Bluetooth and GPS solutions might help you get your phone back once it had been stolen, but they proved to be ineffective and sometimes dangerous, because if I would have chased the thieves into the alley I probably would’ve lost more than my phone.
Until now, no product existed that actually prevented your phone from being stolen or lost in the first place.
We at Team C-Safe rose from the frustration and despair and decided to make a product that truly would protect our valuables from pickpockets. This is what we arrived at.
C-Safe™ Pocket Lock is the world’s first patented Anti-Theft and Anti-Drop solution that offers you the protection you need to be confident that you will never lose your phone again.
- C-Safe™ Pocket Lock consists of two ultra-slim parts. The tiny link, which is attached to your phone, and the sleek lock that is securely clamped to the fabric of your pocket.
- C-Safe™ Pocket Lock is designed with quality and user-friendliness in mind. To that end, it is ultra-slim and ultra-lightweight, so nobody will notice that you’re using one - not even yourself! Furthermore, it is entirely mechanical, so you don’t have to worry about charging it and any technical hassles.
The patented function and design combine…
1. Magnetism for automatic locking.*
2. A clamping mechanism for pocket attachment without damaging the fabric.
3. A powerful and advanced locking mechanism to withstand even the strongest thief while simultaneously making it incredibly quick and simple to unlock by yourself.
* The magnetic components are proven to be harmless to phones through our extensive tests over 12 months on different phones and the product has passed a number of reliability tests with no reported issues.
At the same time… It uses no electricity, which means there is no need to charge it. It is fully waterproof, so you can wash your clothes without removing the C-Safe™ Pocket Lock. Like the GoPro Camera Housing case, ALL plastic components are made of strong Polycarbonate, which makes the C-Safe™ Pocket Lock extremely durable.
C-Safe™ Pocket Lock is sleek and simple on the outside, but at its core, it consists of over twenty components which work together in perfect harmony, just like a premium Swiss clockwork, dedicated to keeping your phone safe.
C-Safe™ Pocket Lock is quick and easy to set up and use. To set it up, simply:
1. Install it in your pocket by clamping it to the fabric.
2. Slide down your phone into your pocket, as usual, the phone will lock to the fabric of your pocket automatically.
3. To unlock your phone, you just need to push down your phone with a firm push at a custom angle set by you. The whole procedure takes less than 1 second.
We chose to launch our product here on Kickstarter because we have been following the platform since it launched back in 2009. Beside the fact that we browse Kickstarter daily for cool new projects and ideas, we love that the Kickstarter community is so incredibly active and engaged. We are sure that those are some of the reasons why YOU are here as well. Together with your help we are going to make C-Safe™ Pocket Lock available and affordable to everyone around the world.
We recently completed the tooling and we’re at the last step before mass production. If we succeed to place a big first order we can cut the cost significantly and make C-Safe™ Pocket Lock really affordable for everyone! At the moment we have 1 set of molds and we used our own capital to fund that. With your support we can also increase the efficiency by making more molds so we can ship out our products faster to YOU!
The more help we get from you, the closer we will get to eliminating pickpocketing globally. We are ready, ARE YOU?

Risks and challenges
We've done an alpha and a beta test with a selected test group and since 6 months back our team have been using the Consumer Version in our every day life without any problems. We're confident the product you will receive will meet your expectations, and we are always here to offer the best service we possibly can!
Manufacturing & Shipment
Throughout the year we've learned that unexpected problems can occur, so we always have a valid backup-plan. If we receive a much larger order than we anticipated there might be a risk of delayed delivery. But our backup plan in this scenario is having another manufacturer on standby, ready to step in if needed.
Please support us in avoiding delayed delivery to you by double checking your delivery address and telephone number at the end of this campaign in the survey you'll receive. Keep in mind that backers will be responsible for applicable tariffs and customs fees, but even though international customs can cause delays we can assure you that we'll do our utmost together with our logistics partner to avoid any issues on our end.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
