NNW Partners with Super Grip Lock

The National Neighborhood Watch is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Super Grip Lock to help reduce crime across America and to help the National Sheriffs' Association purchase bullet proof vests for law enforcement officers who need them through the Protect the Protectors fund.

An Oregon mom after learning about bump keys patented an affordable portable deadbolt accessory that stops anyone from unlocking her deadbolt at home or when staying in a hotel or motel. It’s a Godsend for the traveling public and those who live in rentals because as strangers often have their key. Super Grip Lock is industry tested, police endorsed and works on most deadbolts.

Thanks to the inventor and to the efforts of  Police Chief (ret.) John Thompson, Deputy Executive Director of the National Sheriffs' Association, and his staff, twenty-five (25%) of every product sold on the NNW website and those sold on the SGL website will be donated to purchase bullet proof vests for our Officers.

Watch the instructional video below to see Super Grip Lock in action:

Super Grip Lock, the award-winning deadbolt strap and portable travel lock, attaches to and wraps around the deadbolt handle and doorknob or lever handle when the deadbolt is in the locked position to prevent the handle from turning so the bolt cannot be disengaged until the Strap is removed. Your door will remain locked - even if someone has your key, they can’t get in until the Strap is removed which is a prudent way you can protect yourself.

Travel a lot? Super Grip Lock also works in most hotels and motels

3 Simple Steps to Install and Use the Super Grip Lock:

  1. WHILE LOCKED, slip the Black Elastic Pocket or Eyelet (located at the end of the Strap) over the Tip of the Deadbolt Handle/Key.
  2. WRAP once around Handle or Key in the Direction required to lock Deadbolt go under the Doorknob lift up until snug.
  3. FIRMLY PRESS the self-locking fabric together.

Super Grip Lock Works on Most Doors:

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Benjamin Franklin was right of course and his advice can benefit those who know the facts. Super Grip Lock is industry tested and highly endorsed by Police. It’s made with the durable self-locking hook & loop fabric which is easily modified and can be made to work on most deadbolts even the double cylinder:

  • If your deadbolt locks on the inside with a key simply turn the key to the locked position then slip the Elastic Pocket over the key and wrap the fabric around the key in the direction required to lock your deadbolt go under the doorknob or lever handle lift up until snug and firmly press the fabric together. It’s simple to do and we recommend you use a heavy duty key. If you buy a new key make sure it fits into the black Elastic Pocket before you buy it.
  • If your deadbolt was NOT installed using the standard deadbolt/doorknob template then the distance between the deadbolt and doorknob may be greater than the standard distance. In this case: Super Grip Lock may need to be lengthened and it’s simple. Press on 6 inches of 1-inch wide double-sided hook & loop fabric found at your local fabric store to the end of the Strap with the length of fabric you need to secure the deadbolt handle in the locked position.
  • If your deadbolt turn-handle is smaller than normal size it can slip out of the Elastic Pocket. In this case, simply make a small slit in the center of the Strap 1/2 inch below the Triangle Eyelet then fit the tip of the deadbolt handle into the slit, then holding the fabric in place; wrap as directed; it’s easy to do just be careful when making the slit.

Remember - 25% of your purchase will go towards the NSA's Protect the Protectors bulletproof vest fund.
