Can safety lock

Can safety lock

Supermarket products, especially canned products tend to be an easy target for global petty theft. These kind of robbery represents big losses for brands and retail companies.


This product was designed to be produced in a single plastic piece, very easy to slide and place in the can tabs of the canned products.


This product works by containing an electro-acoustic sensor which, when not deactivated, produces a sound to prevent theft.


The shape of the piece helps the user place the fingers on both sides in order to fold and pull the can tab to be able to open the products.


The can lock consists of a single biodegradable plastic piece with an accelerating decomposition additive.


The closing system consists of attaching it to the can tabs and preventing it from being removed after it has been placed.

The lock fits most can tabs available in the market  on a wide range of products.


The size of the piece doesn’t affect stackability or any other packaging process.
