LINCOLN, Calif., Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Safely storing prescription medications has always been a challenge for parents and other prescription holders. Now, an innovative new device allows prescription holders to safely secure and store dangerous medications—in a small, convenient and more portable container.
Developed by CAP-N-LOCK, LLC., The Locking Cap is a combination locking cap designed to work with existing prescription medication bottles. The Locking Cap was designed to help families prevent unauthorized and undetected use of prescription medications for non-medical purposes. With a four-digit combination locking mechanism and sturdy PVC construction, it is easy to use, but virtually impossible to get past without detection.
"The Locking Cap eliminates unauthorized access to dangerous prescription drugs," said Joseph Simpson, President and product designer for CAP-N-LOCK. "The Locking Cap is very easy to operate. It protects families by blocking access to curious children and experimental teens. Plus, it features a compact design that allows for easy access and storage when traveling and at home."
The Locking Cap is designed and manufactured in the United States and is currently available in national pharmacies and online at http://www.TheLockingCap.com
