Daily Deal: The Quicklock

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

The Quicklock looks like a normal padlock but does not require an extra set of keys or a memorized combination to open it. The lock opens with a tap of an RF/NFC card (2 included in the purchase) or via Bluetooth and an app on your phone. The lock can be programmed to be used by up to 50 different NFC cards or unlimited phone users and will keep track of who used it and when, according to the Quicklock website FAQ. It’s available through the Techdirt Deals store for 18% off of retail and includes a choice of blue or black, 2 NFC cards, a key fob and a micro USB charger. Additional NFC cards, key fobs and even a ring (really?) are available as additional purchases through Quicklock’s site.

An additional discount is available for this lock only through the Techdirt Store. Use the code QUICKLOCK and get it for $45 (25% off).

Re: Re: Re:

You wouldn’t even need a bolt cutter to break this lock. It’s housing, made of “virtually indestructible” (yes, they really said that) zinc alloy could easily be broken up with a few blows of a hammer. Zinc is actually a very soft, somewhat brittle metal commonly used in cheap die-cast items such as children’s toys.

That’s assuming that only the lock’s case is zinc, and not the shackle, which on any normal padlock is case-hardened steel. Considering that you could almost bite through a zinc shackle with your teeth, it would be hilarious if anyone was actually dumb enough to design a padlock with a zinc shackle.

Though maybe not so funny for the poor customer who got snookered into buying this lock and thinking it was more than just an ornamental novelty.
