A simple "U" shaped padlock shackle
inspired me to invent a shackle more resistant to cutting,
thicker and horizontally configured. Then got idea to 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 not any trigger guard as others do. Below padlocks
and computer locks I thought when locked would
stay locked without a key. Big mistake after stumbling upon
LDL site below it appears 98.5% of keyed padlocks can be
easily opened without a key. Not good.
Do a Google search "Lock picking for kids" or "How to pick a
trigger lock". You will be surprised how many sites
you find. Visit
on youtube. My Trigger Lock will stay locked using an Abloy
362, Abus 37RK80 or Plus Series Brass 88 even though each
lock is over $100.00 until I got an idea to invent my now
patent pending Padlock
Lock companies selling trigger locks are misleading
consumers and governmental organizations by not having a
label showing Warning: This trigger lock is a toy,
keep away from children 6 years or older!

A Trigger Lock can save a life. Extra cash in your pocket is

you and your gun happier. Spending less than $25.00 to maybe save a
life is not!
