BenjiLock By Hampton® products: The key is at your fingertips™

Perfect for every day, travel and a variety of seasonal gift-giving uses, BenjiLocks were envisioned by inventor Robbie Cabral as a way to make it easier for users to access their belongings. With a prototype originally seen on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” the product line has been brought to market by Hampton Products, a company that has produced more than 1.5 billion door locks, padlocks, door hardware and security lights for multiple brands. BenjiLock By Hampton fingerprint products rolling into b8ta stores and online include:

  • The BenjiLock By Hampton Fingerprint Padlock – For those running to work, school or the gym and want their belongings to be safe and secure but without the hassle of carrying extra keys, the world’s first traditional rechargeable padlock with fingerprint technology provides the answer. Delivering practical protection to fit today’s lifestyle, the full-sized 43mm padlock stores up to 10 fingerprints for multiple user access and features a fully rechargeable lithium-ion battery (that can last between six and nine months on a single charge), built-in LED light indicators for easy programming and operation, a micro USB cable for recharging, and a traditional set of keys for those seeking peace of mind.

    The fingerprint lock is ready to protect with a highly secure chrome-plated, hardened steel shackle, solid brass keyway cylinder with five brass pins for increased resistance to picking, and a double stainless-steel ball locking mechanism for superior resistance to prying. Available in white and matte black, suggested retail price is $69.99.

  • The BenjiLock By Hampton TSA Travel/Luggage Lock – Whether heading off to a dream vacation or catching a morning business flight, there’s no need to remember lock combinations or to carry keys when your checked bags are concerned. This innovative BenjiLock By Hampton lock has you protected – bringing biometric, fingerprint unlock to the luxury travel market. The small, sleek and fashion-forward travel padlocks are Travel Sentry-approved and TSA accepted, allowing travel without keys. If necessary, the travel lock can be opened by airport security and then returned to checked bags, keeping valuables secure during domestic and overseas trips.

    Available in white and matte black, each BenjiLock By Hampton TSA Travel/Luggage Lock features a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, chrome-plated hardened steel shackle, and can store five different fingerprints. The lock also comes with a private, resettable combination for use by travelers whose fingerprints are not stored in the lock’s memory. A micro-USB charging cable is included. MSRP for the product is $49.99.

Robbie Cabral is scheduled to appear in the b8ta Santa Monica location (395 Santa Monica Place, Level Two, Santa Monica, CA 90401) on December 14th from 3-7 p.m.
