Cutting-Edge Lock Developers Raise $568,000, Nearly Six Times Initial Goal
Jerusalem, Israel, August 14, 2016 – ZØRE, makers of the world’s fastest locked-to-loaded gun lock, announced today the completion of their crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo which generated $568,000 in funding, selling over 4200 ZØRE X locks in 60 days.
“We had great faith in the product we were developing and a keen understanding of the need for a gun locking solution that was fast and reliable,” said Yonatan Zimmerman, CEO and Cofounder of ZØRE. “But we were truly blown away by the support we received from gun owners around the world.”
ZØRE’s patent-pending technology keeps firearms safe from operation by unauthorized users but ready to fire in seconds by the owner. The locking mechanism, placed in the chamber of the gun, can be ejected and a live cartridge chambered simply by charging the gun. Attempts to charge the gun when the lock is activated cause the cartridge to expand with 10times the force applied to it. The unlocking mechanism, RAPIDial, allows owners to quickly unlock their gun and in any situation, including complete darkness.
In just two days, ZØRE passed its campaign goal of $100,000 and in less than 2 months reached $568,000 in total funding from more than 3,000 backers, well above the average crowdfunding campaign.
“The significance of more than 3,000 gun owners placing their trust in our product – before we had begun mass production – proves that the need is there and that our design is hitting the right balance between safety and accessibility,” said Yalon Fishbein, CTO and Cofounder of ZØRE. “Now we’re ready to buckle down and put our backers’ investment to work to produce the fastest, most reliable gun lock we can.”
ZØRE is an innovative gun safety solutions provider that produces the world’s fastest locked-to-loaded gun lock. The company was founded and is staffed by Israeli Defense Forces veterans. The company’s products combine cutting-edge technology with tried and true mechanical locking to create the ideal solutions for gun owners to keep their guns safe from the hands of children or other unauthorized users but still immediately accessible by the owner at critical moments. The company’s RAPIDial technology allows for quick, non-visual unlocking and the lock’s unique design ejects the lock and chambers a live cartridge in one simple, charging motion.
