With the addition of the GearGuard Lens Lock to the previously released GearGuard Body Lock and Bag Lock, the GearGuard product line now offers a seamless theft deterrent system for a photographer's complete equipment system. Once the Lens Lock is attached to the camera's rear optic, the irremovable device renders the lens useless to thieves. When twisted into place, the Lens Lock releases "teeth" that anchor the security cap to the bayonet on the lens mount for a flawless fit. Made of industrial strength plastic, the Lens Lock can be paired with the GearGuard Security Cable and Combination Lock and attached to a secure anchor point for safe storage or attached to other gear inside a camera bag for added protection and loss prevention.
"When we looked at other ways for the GearGuard system to help photographers mitigate theft risks, the Lens Lock was the next logical step for adding an extra layer of security in an affordable package," said Gary Fong, internationally renowned photographer and CEO of Gary Fong, Inc. "With the addition of the Lens Lock to the GearGuard line, photographers have another option for seamlessly integrating extra security to their equipment, wherever their work takes them. I use the new Lens Lock to secure each of my unused lenses whenever I need to leave them in the car or in a hotel room. Photographers will find plenty of their own situations where this level of peace-of-mind is hugely important."
The GearGuard Lens Lock will carry an MAP of $29.95, and will be available for purchase beginning September 10, 2010. The Combination Lock and 36" steel security cable is sold separately and is available for $9.95 MAP. For more information or to purchase any of the GearGuard products, visit garyfonginc.com.
