We have grandchildren and guests with small children in our home regularly. So, for decades my firearms have remained in a safe or locked box. With home invasions in the news so often, my wife (not a gun or anti-gun person) requested I obtain a biometric tabletop safe and keep a handgun accessible. I tested three of the quick draw (holster) type bedside safes returned each of them. All failed either in their overall quality of construction or in their recognition reliability (finger print). I was not going to bet my life or those of my loved ones on any of them. I decided to give identilock a try (4th time is a charm right). It fit my Springfield XDS-45 perfectly. The fingerprint recognition while a bit more tedious during the scanning process,... is absolutely 100% reliable. After programming it will recognize your finger even if placed on it backwards or upside down. It falls clear of the gun in less than a half second. I added a TYC TAQ Magnetic Gun Mount to the side of the bed rail to render absolutely the most discrete storage (hidden under the comforter) and fastest access (right where my strong side hand lands while lying in bed) that could possibly exist. Workmanship and materials are superb. Fingerprint recognition is flawless and faster than they claim! Thank you Identilock. Now, please these available home defense shotguns (the Remington 870 and the Mossberg 500). There are those of us who would much rather face down an intruder with the reliable long gun than the pistol.

Piece of cake set-up, locks tight, unlocks easy. a great buy! :)
I had a scare the other day, my house alarm went off at 2:30a and my gun was in another room. I couldn't put the gun in my nightstand because I have a toddler running around and lock&key would take too long to access. A gun safe with finger print readers are slow and bulky. Identilock is perfect based on my research, but I was hesitant to buy this product since my Dan Wesson Heritage 1911 hasn't been tested. However, support assured me that I can return it if it doesn't fit so I went ahead with it.
I'm happy to report that it does fit the Dan Wesson Heritage (and probably other Dan Wesson 1911 models). The enrollment is not intuitive, but watching the video helps. You just need to scan your finger flat at a few position 8 times, if it's red you have to keep doing it until it turns green. Once it's enrolled, it unlocks just as fast as an iPhone. Also, I learned that the magazine needs to be out when you're locking it. You can insert the magazine in after it's locked (designed for safety). Oh, the the charger is USB-C which is very nice as micro USB is old technology. You're looking at this site, you should go for it.
Like the title says best investment I have ever made! This lock safe Works excellent exclamation exclamation beyond my wildest dreams. This is a true review from a real person. At first it's a little confusing on how to set up your fingerprint but once you understand it it's super easy. I think they should make a video on how to do it.
The lock works perfectly and fast. I really helps to keep grandkids hands off a unsafe weapon. I set mine and wife's print for the lock. I have tried gandkids fingerprints and others on the lock. Only works with mine and the wife's print. I was looking for a lock that is quick to unlock but safe with grandkids.
Very secure and easy to program. Very fast recognition and unlock. One sore spot, not on IDENTILOCK, on the Glock store, they advertise this item as a universal Glock they are unaware that the G 43 and 43x are not supported.
Opens as quickly as in the demo videos
I've been waiting for a fingerprint trigger lock to come to market that would actually work. Well, it's here now in the Indentilock! i can now leave my 1911 in the bed stand drawer without worrying that any kids can get a hold of it and use it. All you need to know is that it works and is reliable.
Product is fast enough, I would like to see the enrollment process improved. It took more than a few tries following the instructions to get my finger print enrolled. Once enrolled everything works exactly as advertised.
Awesome device, very well thought-out. Has a USB-C port for charging, which is great.

This is definitely not a gimmick. The old dilemma of having your gun in a safe slowing down your response time for ready to shoot is literally NO MORE!
An excellent product. I highly recommend it. As a member of a true minority (Lefties), if it was made left hand accessible it would be perfect.
The Identilock is a great product, and unlocks your pistol very fast. The only thing i think they could make better, is the plastic body, i would prefere a billet aluminium lockbody.
+, 6days shipping to switzerland is very fast
I todally recomend the Identilock to all my friends.
I’m not a nightstand gun guy; but when I travel I do bring my handgun and don’t always want to have it ccw. Identilock is PERFECT option to a traditional trigger lock. Makes the gun safe from the kids should they go through my bag, but keeps it readily accessible.
I LIKE THIS LOCK . I WISH YOU WOULD EXPAND YOUR PRODUCT LINE TO DIFFERENT MAKES AND MODELS LIKE REVELOVERS,SHOT GUNS,ASSALT RIFLES AND SUB COMPACT PISTOLS.I HAVE 2 OF THEM NOW I RECOMMEND TO ALL MY FRIENDS,THEY WORK GREAT FOR ME.THANK YOU
Overall, I really like the Identilock. I works as advertised, quick and secure. However, it does not work when the temp is in the 30's or below. I use it to keep in my pistol in my car, so winter is an issue as I live in MI. I still use it, but keep the key handy during the winter. Warmer weather, or in a house would be fine year 'round.
On my Glock Model 20 SF; I had to modify the Identilock and/or the Glock’s magazine release button before the Identilock would fit. Fortunately, that was easy to do with a gun made from plastic and an Identilock made from plastic. Mod took me <30 minutes using a razor knife and some very small files.
My Identilock would not register a fingerprint while charging (full charge out of box took <2 hours). I was able to register my finger print after calling Identilock and they suggested I unplug the charging cable first. I unplugged the cable, registered the fingerprint and plugged the charging cable back in to complete charging. Nowhere in the instructions or on-line did I read that tip! Come on guys, undoubtedly someone knew that at Identilock and should have included it in the instructions and/or videos on-line.
That all being said, The Identilock works great for me (after the simple modifications). I then tested the Identilock over 100 times with the magazine loaded and the gun cocked with no round chambered to verify as well as I could that no matter how I twisted, dropped, struck, jammed or grabbed my gun the trigger would not discharge the a round.
I am extremely pleased with the functionality of the Identilock and being able to lock my gun and instantly have access to it in a ready to fire state! I can find no way to get access to the trigger while the Identilock is secured and in place. Well done Identilock, I have needed this type locking device for several years! Perfect for my storage and use application!
Another thing; the box the Identilock came in is high quality and has a good texture and feel to it. I appreciate quality in all things.
When will the lock be available for the Glock 43
It’s perfect. Reliable. Secure. Yes it makes the gun a bit more bulky but I’m much more comfortable leaving weapon at my bedside with the lock on
Response time in instantaneous I like the back up key feature
Need to expand what guns and rifles it can work with
Please note. If you add on a Laser site that fits under the barrel the lock will not fit. I found that out the hard way
Works great for my night stand Springfield XDM. Quick access, easy to program and use. Only down side is I have to take my rail light off which I don't like not having on the gun.
I really like this technology. Had to watch the video on the Identilock site for the lock's finger print enrollment, but the video helped to clarify the documentation that came with the product.
Just did setup for my Identilock. Easy installation and was pleased with how fast and easy the unlocking mechanism worked.
I would even advocate this technology being integrated into the grip of the gun as a requirement of owning one.
