Quicklock

Bluetooth Padlock

Lock & Roll

Is there anyone who hasn’t forgotten a combination lock code? Luckily, Quicklock has come to the rescue.

This innovative padlock opens with your smartphone (via Bluetooth), a fob, or a key card. Use Quicklock on a shed or a fence or to lock up your bike or to use as a locker at school or the gym.

Made with die-cast zinc alloy,
it’s durable and weather-resistant.The rechargeable battery lasts for up to two years, too (depending on how often you use it).

Unlocking via the app is so simple. Press a button on Quicklock—the app syncs up to your phone. Just press "Unlock" on your screen. Click―the lock opens.

Not a smartphone user? Quicklock works for you, too. It includes two credit card-shaped keys and a fob that use NFC (Near Field Communication). Hold one near the lock and it opens.

Founder Ryan Hyde has been inventing, designing, and modifying groundbreaking products for more than 20 years. He decided to focus his attention on a safe gun storage system and, after years of effort, created Quicklock. (Of course, this lock works for many other situations, too.)

No more combinations or keys—enjoy the security and simplicity of Quicklock.

    Hello everyone! I'm proud to introduce Quicklock to The Grommet. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have!

    Why is this the padlock people should start using? Beyond not having to remember numbers.

  • Ryan

    It may not be for everyone – it’s not just about remembering numbers. This lock is an access control system with a RTC (Real time clock), Memory, two communication protocols (RFID and Bluetooth), power management and other features not yet exploited by the internal technology. For many situations you may want to know who accessed your stuff and when your it occurred.

    This lock provides all the tech to enable full control. At a rental property I own I use this lock and I am able to send renters and tenants to my location and then give them access remotely with a text. We have a new Doorlock being released shortly that is lower in cost than any competitors and has a ton more features than any of our competitors just like this lock!

    @Ryan Is That Possible? To open remotely with a text? Do you have discount for multiple units?

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    8/7/2015 1:48 PM

    Hi Walt, not at the moment, but that could possibly be a future feature. As of now you can pass access via text just not unlock it.

    This is a great solution, but how does someone involved in designing roller coasters, strengthening nuclear facility alarm system, and normalizing hypersensitive medical equipment get into the padlock business? Did you just forget your combination one too many times?

  • Ryan
    Ryan – Special Guest
    8/6/2015 2:18 PM

    @Mike 2. I’ve been in product development for over 20 years. about 10 years there was an incident that touched my heart when a child was killed by a handgun. I became concerned about keeping guns safe around kids and we designed a security box that had lots of tech: The Gun Box. The padlock and other products was a natural progression. The original intent of the Padlock was to lock a rifle box under your bed, have the battery last two years, but give the authorized owner quick and immediate access in an emergency.

    A great idea, Ryan, but way too expensive. I'd be a buyer at a lower price.

  • Ryan
    Ryan – Special Guest
    8/6/2015 2:19 PM

    @Glenn 3. Safety and security – with immediate and quick access, history logging and battery life of over 2-years has a price. You may also want to consider some of the other convenience factors. This lock can also be considered a time clock that lets you know who has been in your toolbox, or other stuff, and you can give discrete access in ways no other lock can. Also consider buying a large safe with bluetooth and RFID when you consider the cost. This lock turns a simple low cost metal container into a security system with all the features of an expensive safe at a relatively low cost.

    What happens when the battery goes dead?

  • Adam
    Adam – Grommet Team
    8/6/2015 12:58 PM

    @Nick

    Great question! The Padlock battery can be recharged using a standard MicroUSB cable plugged into an USB powered outlet such as a power supply, laptop, or car charger.

  • Elizabeth
    Elizabeth
    8/6/2015 1:30 PM

    @Adam

    so, if the battery runs out while the lock is in use, you'll need a portable power source to charge it, if I'm following the previous repsonse?

  • Adam
    Adam – Grommet Team
    8/6/2015 3:28 PM

    @Elizabeth

    If padlock won't open due to battery power then plug in any standard MicroUSB cable for a few minutes. This will charge the Padlock enough to remove it from its location. We recommend charging the padlock for 2 hours in order to reach a full charge. Once a full charge is reached, the Red light will no longer blink. On a full charge the battery will last up to 2 years

    Or as we say here in Boston, a wicked long time.

  • Ryan
    Ryan – Special Guest
    8/6/2015 2:20 PM

    @Roberta 4. Other Smartphone or cards – This lock is flexible – it can be used with multiple phones and cards with the correct password or programming. The lock can learn up to 50 different RFID devices and anyone who has your passcode can get in just like the security on your computer. The passwords can also be changed periodically to allow for more security.

    Hi Ryan: Is the fob or card waterproof? I'd like to use the lock at the gym when I go swimming.

    @Ryan That's my question. What does the "fob" look like? I would need it to be waterproof and wearable while I swim laps.

  • Mike

    Hi William, below is an image of the fob. As Ryan said, it is waterproof and I'm sure you can find a way to wear this while swimming.

    @Pam 6. You can – It is part of the architecture. You may not know but you can also put our locks on anything, give someone a code, and then look at the history of when they accessed your stuff. The lock history can be used to validate and keep track of rentals and so fort!

    So what if i bought 100 of these locks for new lockers at my office. Will each lock have a unique code that doesnt allow someone else to open it?

  • Ryan
    Ryan – Special Guest
    8/6/2015 2:25 PM

    @erie Yes. See several other comments. This lock is fully configurable just like your computer password. Each lock can store up to 50 different cards or fobs so your entire faculty can have access and you can know who has accessed the equipment.

  • Mike

    8/6/2015 6:09 PM

    Hi J, just hook up the micro USB charger for a few minutes and you will be able to remove it. You will get a warning that the battery is waning far before that point.

    you indicate that the lock is "weather resistant". can you be more specific? can this unit be used out doors in a weather exposed area (like the lock on a unsheltered fence gate?? will it hold up in use in a tropical (heat and rain) environment. and remain functional??

    thank you for your reply.

  • Adam
    Adam – Grommet Team
    8/6/2015 3:25 PM

    Oops looks like Ryan's response is not showing up. Here it is.

    @Steve The Lock is Weather resistant but not weather proof. Our testing includes light water spray, heat, cold and prolonged exposure to sun.

    In a tropical environment with prolonged use outside we would recommend you use a cover for the lock.

    I went to the gym, locked my clothes & purse in the locker, attached my cheap lock and slammed the door. When I went to open the lock, I could not see the numbers on the lock since my reading glasses were locked in the locker! This is a great solution for those of us somewhat visually impaired! I obviously had not locked up my phone so I could listen to music - voila! This is great if the price could come down somewhat. I never went back to the gym. LOL

  • Ryan
    Ryan – Special Guest
    8/6/2015 2:29 PM

    @Marianne This is the perfect solution. We have many customers who love the Quicklock for gym use. Just like you, most people keep their phones and can later easily access their lock with Bluetooth. Or it's very easy to tuck a card, fob or put on a ring.

    Since this lock can be secured using bluetooth, is it possible to tell if someone tries to cut or mess with the lock - as in a breaking to a storage unit? Is there a notification via bluetooth that would let you know?

    If you can come up with a lock that is controlled by simply dialing a number on ones Samsung phone, from a distance, then you will have a winner. Example: gated communities have guards who in the morning, make the rounds to open areas locked for the night, i.e. tennis courts, or they must be opened after rain, without leaving the guard shack. Now they must go to the lock to open it with a key. Thanks.
