P-LOCKS: Theft Deterrent Anchoring System & Tie-Down

$10,811

65

P-Locks is an easy to use mid-level theft deterrent anchoring system. The patent pending technology makes for an easy and secure installation. The comfortable 8-inch handles allow helix coils to be inserted about 12 inches apart; this distance prevents soil disruption between coils. Once you install a lock of your choice, handle rotation is stopped, allowing both anchors to work as one, thus having a larger soil gripping area. More soil coverage, translates to more holding power. P-Locks was created to be a portable, stationary object, to deter the theft of your outdoor valuables. All P-Locks are made of 3/8 inch, cold rolled steel for strength and durability, powder coated to resist corrosion, trimmed entry point for easy installation and even the color RED stands out for high visibility.

Measurements

Finished product and retail package with three dimensional look, clearly showing applications.

It took us a while, but we could not be prouder of our finished product. We are looking forward to hearing how our backers are going to use P-Locks and the great stories on how they helped put a dent in opportunist theft, so please, don't forget to share with us.

We hope our logo and the fact that our anchors are shaped like the letter " P ", will help you remember the name of our product: 

P-Locks

" P " = Protect Personal Property

" P " = Portable

" P " = Peace of mind

So remember, your property is not protected, until it's P-LOCKED!!!

Risks and challenges

Design, development and testing have been completed. We have established a good working relationship with our manufacturer. They are aware of what we are doing with Kickstarter and are more than willing to work with us. In short, everything is lined up and ready to go, once the funding is in place.

In estimating a delivery date, we have accounted for lead time and unexpected delays, so we are confident in giving our backers an on-time delivery. With that being said, the key to anticipating delays is that you can't anticipate them. If something does come up, we promise to be straightforward and keep you, our backers updated.

Even if we receive more pledges than we have anticipated and need much more rewards, our manufacturer has assured us that they will send us the P-Locks as they are being completed, so we can start sending out these wonderful rewards to our earliest backers. For us, this was great news, which means we might even be able to send some of the rewards, before our estimated delivery date.

Shipping is anticipated for November 2015 but may occur sooner

Shipping through USPS, in the continetal U.S. ONLY

Texas backers must add 8.25% to pledge, for state sales tax (Pay Caesar his due)

We have been asked by Kickstarter backers, why we only ship within the continental U.S. And the reason for this is the shipping cost. A few have said they would be more than willing to cover the additional cost of shipping, in order to get their hands on such a wonderful product. So, if you are outside the continental U.S. please send us message so we can look into the shipping cost for your part on the world.

Thank you for your support.
