The Pillar is a great place to keep your prescriptions, vape supplies, medicinals, keys, money, or other personal items locked up in plain sight!
How is it better than the sock drawer, coffee can, or bulky safe?
Your valuables remain secure until you decide to open it via Voice-ID or our free app, and that means no keys and no PINs to remember. You can easily share access from anywhere. The Pillar is smell proof and it has a built in anchor so you can attach a Kensington click safe steel cable lock. Ideal for travelers, parents, those with roommates, teachers, Airbnb rentals, cubicles and more.
Introducing our Stretch Goal!
Congrats and huge thanks to our fantastic backers for getting us to our $25k goal. To show our appreciation and keep the momentum rolling for the campaign's final few days, we're looking to go even bigger and better with a stretch goal of $30k!
Why? It's pretty simple. From a lot of folks we've heard the question, "How can I keep The Pillar from 'walking off?" The answer: by easily attaching the optional Kensington compatible universal security cable lock. So, if we can get this thing up to $30k by campaign's end, we'll include a FREE cable lock with every single Pillar pledged by our existing and new backers.

Durability of The Pillar
The Pillar and your Apple Watch
Who We Are. LockedBrands is a small team based in Dallas, TX. We're a retired Intel and Texas Instruments semi-conductor engineer, an entrepreneur that has created multiple cloud based robotics platforms, and a retired aerospace and defense executive.
Why We Do It. You shouldn't have to remember a bunch of PINs or carry keys around to access your belongings. Current lockbox systems for safeguarding personal belongings are expensive, unattractive, impractical and difficult to use.

Key Features and Benefits
Summary of Features and Benefits
Risks and challenges
Development Risk is Low. Development of The Pillar is complete! Our overseas manufacturer has completed the first run of 300 units. We have received shipment of the first 54 Pillars and are extensively testing them to ensure reliability and consistency. So far, so good!
Manufacturing Risk is Low. Our manufacturer has produced a consistent, high quality product, meaning the remaining minimal manufacturing risk lies mainly with vanishing vendors and obsolete parts. We're working closely with our manufacturer for regular price & availability updates, developing risk mitigation steps as we go.
Challenges: The single biggest challenge we face is the potential for tariffs given the trade disagreements between the US and China. While the current tariff on our product is low (~3%), should they increase significantly we're working through a backup plan to locate a second manufacturer in Asia. Fortunately, we own the injection molds, which represent the single biggest investment in this supplier and give us the flexibility to change manufacturers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
