AMARILLO, Texas, July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Construction tools and equipment are notoriously vulnerable to theft, a reality that motivated experienced contractor Eddie Vazquez to innovate his own solution – a durable steel theft deterrence anchoring system called the P-Locks. Seeing its practicality and versatility in action, Vazquez's plan now is to bring the product to market, starting with a Kickstarter campaign. More information about the P-Locks is available at http://p-locks.com/.
The goal of the Kickstarter is to raise $10,000 for the full production and retail launch of P-Locks. Campaign supporters will be the first to receive the product once it's ready for market.
"We chose the name P-Locks because the anchors resemble the letter P," remarks Vazquez. "Plus, 'P' can stand for 'protection,' 'portability' and, most of all, 'peace of mind.'"
P-Locks is portable, strong and low impact. It's a breeze to set up because it requires no tools. The patent-pending design features 8-inch handles for driving the coils into the ground. Ideally, the two coils should be 12 inches apart to avoid soil disruption and create a larger holding area. The entire P-Locks mechanism is comprised of 3/8-inch cold rolled steel with a corrosion-resistant surface. Users supply their own locks, chains and cables to suit their specific application.
Beyond safeguarding contracting equipment and supplies against theft, P-Locks is a practical solution for securing and anchoring a wide variety of items, including, but not limited to:
- Off-road vehicles and dirt bikes
- Yard and construction signs
- New trees
- Tents and camping supplies
- Patio furniture
- Sports and playground equipment
Independent testing has confirmed the effectiveness of P-Locks. Pulling P-Locks vertically out of the ground required 1,700 pounds of force. Horizontal removal required 2,900 pounds. Most thefts occur when criminals spot an opportunity, but P-Locks makes these random acts virtually impossible.
"Your property is not protected until it's P-Locked," adds Vazquez.
P-Locks, LLC has more products in the development pipeline, including both theft prevention devices and home improvement tools.
About P-Locks, LLC
P-Locks, LLC is a family-owned business. We have been in the construction industry for generations and have used a vast array of tools, gadgets and gizmos. There is a saying among contractors, "You are as good as the tools you use." In our construction business, we only used tools specific to the job we were doing, and in many cases, we had to re-invent some tools to accomplish the task at hand. Unfortunately, some of these timesaving and innovative new tools were never used by anybody outside family.
After going through the proper channels and applying for a patent, we have made our first product, the P-Locks, affordable and available to the public, with more products to come shortly.
