A simple "U" shaped padlock shackle inspired me to invent a shackle more resistant to cutting, it is thicker and horizontally configured.  Then got idea use my patented stronger padlock with a Trigger Lock making a gun less susceptible to theft or accidental discharge.  I received my Trigger Lock US patent 8,720,097. 

My patented Trigger Lock is customized to fit your trigger guard.  It will not lock to just any trigger guard as others do.  Good security does not come cheap. Spending a few extra dollars buys you a non-pickable padlock and not some easily picked padlock used to protect what is in your gym locker or garage. Don't be like me, too cheap to purchase for this site or even now an Abloy or Abus padlock instead of basically worthless padlocks shown on this site each easily opened without a key or combination number. 

Spending more could someday help you to save a life and it could be your life!

Link to Pittsburgh Action News 07/15/2019 "Investigation finds some trigger locks easy to pick.  One was picked by a 6-year-old."  Watch video it is very instructive.

It is only a matter of time before some legal mind seeks liability damages from owner of a known to be easily picked Trigger Lock sold by a lock company, local gun store, department store, online or offered free from a Safety Giveaway Group. 

Link to Equifax 07/23/2019 paying out $700 million "regulators said the company did not do enough to protect the data and misled consumers as to how secure it was." 

A lock company misleading consumers how secure their Trigger Lock toy is could be subject to it's recall someday!

I have a provisional application patent pending for a method on how a keyed padlock should lock in 2020 & beyond.  Message to visitors from Korea, Fuzhou, Shanghai, Surabaye and Fujian.  A prototype should be finished soon, however I will not show it to everyone at same time.  Email me if you are interested to be on a list to see it first with others on list.

Next few pictures show my US Patent#8,720,097 Trigger Lock. This is not a Trigger Lock like those sold in market stores or given away free to fit any Trigger Guard as if all Trigger Guards are alike.  Some of these free or cheap Trigger Locks can be easily hacked, picked or removed by a six year old using a very simple to do modified screw driver. 

Do a Google search for how easy it is to hack or pick a Trigger Lock or youtube LockPickingLawyer.  My Trigger Lock easily locks using an ABLOY 362, ABUS 37RK80 or ABUS Plus Series Brass 88 I wish I would have purchased to show on this page.

A Trigger Lock can save a life.  Extra cash in your pocket is extra cash!  A small additional cost for a custom made Trigger Lock and  padlock that will not open without your key will make you and your gun happier.  Spending less than $25.00 to maybe save a life is not!

Mon, 13 Dec 2010   Oh my god!!!  This lock is the BEST!!!  You should market it.  Thank you so much! Can I get another one?  Maybe 2 more?  I'll pay for them this time!  Such a smart design.  I'm impressed.

Sat, 14 Nov 2009 Dear Padlock inventor, I too have recently looked at the padlock patents and it is indeed pathetic what the conventional companies continue to sell.

Tue, 02 Sep 2008 I have to admit that those shackles certainly seem very similar to me, but the threshold of "novelty" for design patents is pretty low. There's no functional difference between a lock with a round shackle and one with an octagonal cross-section - but functional difference is exactly what design patents are NOT intended to protect. Clearly, a round shackle is different visually from one with eight sides, and perhaps that's a difference which means something to a padlock manufacturer. Or, more likely, they hope that it will distinguish their goods from their competitors', so that a consumer will see a lock with an eight-sided shackle hanging on a rack with all the round-shackled locks and say, "I like that company's locks, so I'll buy that one." It's not unlike the differences in design of keys for locks - the punched rectangular top doesn't work any better than a round one, but it makes it instantly recognizable as a Kwikset. (Design patent and trade dress/product configuration protection kind of overlap, here) Design patents have their place in the general scheme of protection, but there's a reason why they're less expensive, shorter lived, and easier to get. They just cover a visual difference from what was done before, and for some people, that's enough.
