ImageLOCK plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign in November to create a lock with colored symbols.
Sunnyside, NY: ImageLOCK (design and utility patented), the only lock company that produces combination locks with symbols, today announced an upcoming Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new combination lock with colored symbols. The Kickstarter campaign (search: ImageLOCK with Colors) is set to launch during the first week of November 2015.
ImageLOCK, which made its product debut through Kickstarter in November 2014, is the latest breakthrough in combination padlock innovation. Invented by Ali Nawaz, the ImageLOCK is ushering in a new era in combination padlocks. The inclusion of images instead of numbers is the innovation in this combination lock design. Instead of a 1-2-3 combination, imagine a typical ImageLOCK combination might be “butterfly-dog-star-” or “triangle-circle-square.”
“People tend to forget combination numbers,” says Nawaz. “Images, however, are much easier to remember. A child especially can remember his/her favorite animal or shape for their combination lock. It could benefit people with Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. It could even help people with disabilities.”
This second upcoming Kickstarter campaign from ImageLOCK will support the expansion of the company’s product line with a new, updated combination lock. This lock will include an upgraded heavy duty lock and shackle, 12 symbols (the original ImageLOCK has 8 symbols). Each symbol on this lock will be featured in a bright, fun color which lends to easier memorization of combinations. Additionally, the wholesale version of this lock will offer a control key mechanism that will allow users to open the lock with a key in the event that the combination is forgotten.
Nawaz, a New York City resident, saw a need for the ImageLOCK after observing how virtually all combination padlocks are one-dimensional. Nawaz believes the ImageLOCK would be a great way for school age children to hone their memory skills. The lock would also help people who suffer from memory loss. “I have not been able to find a similar lock in existence,” Nawaz said. “There are many kinds of combination locks, but I have not seen one that’s geared toward young and elderly people or those that would enjoy a decorative and interesting lock.”
ImageLOCK CEO Ali Nawaz started ImageLOCK (www.image-lock.com) in 2015 as an online business. Since then ImageLOCK has made its way into fitness centers and stores in New York City.
