I have a problem placing my finger on the window without holding the gun with my left hand. Reader needs to be placed closer to the trigger position. The middle finger is very unreliable for me. It does work but I have to make sure my finger is just right on the reader. Have programed it several times.
Great product, fingerprint reader works very well, fast and better than my biometric gun safes. Wil use this often. One issue, while it works great on my Glock 27s, 23, 19, my 21, 20, and 29 are two wide. It takes a bit of pressure to squeeze closed, and it seems to be putting to much pressure on the lock, for it to release on its own. Will not open without some closing pressure to help the latch release. Not reliable enough opening on the larger framed Glocks.
On suggestion, there should be a slot for a cable lock so it can be tethered to a fixed object as needed, similar to many of the mini-safes.
The GLK-A1 is working flawlessly with a Glock 19 - Gen 5. Used it every day for 11 days & nights between securing it in my luggage in my hotel room while going to procedures during the day @ a clinic in Minnesota. If I could make a change, I would move the activation switch higher (toward the slide). That would put it more in line with my forefinger when I have a good purchase on the grip.
I really like the fact how quickly it provides access to the pistol, if needed, It works as advertised and have tested it with other family members to make sure that they can't open it without having the biometrics loaded. Great Product!
Ordered the S&W A-1 model for a new S&W 380 Shield M&P EZ based on the brief compatibility description on the website and a brief conversation with a customer service rep. Received it and appears to be very well made and designed. Unfortunately the “claim shell” locking design did not fit and device could not lock. Appears my S&W was too wide for the A-1 to close and lock. Customer service was great and handle my return and refund very nicely.
Would have kept the A-1 had it fit my gun. Website listing for compatible guns should be more model specific.
I’ve only had the device a short while but so far it’s looking good. It’s pretty forgiving with how you place your finger but won’t work if you place just your finger tip on it. It’s good to try out opening it several different ways so when it counts you know it’s opening. I saved my finger print in on 2 separate saves just to have as many positions as possible open the lock. It will be interesting to see how long the battery lasts. Charging every few months is completely reasonable to me. From what I’ve experienced so far this thing is awesome. When I touch my finger on the pad it practically jumps off the gun. I have two children in the house and I’m completely confident with my pistol in my nightstand with this lock on it. And I’m completely confident when I need it I will be ready in the blink of an eye. Really great product from what I’m seeing. Plus I had an issue with ordering and the customer service took great care of me. Only thing I’m wondering about is how long the battery will stay good because all batteries go bad at some point but even if I had to replace this thing every 5 years I wouldn’t hesitate. I’m very happy, great product so far! Thanks identilock !!
great product, works right every time!!! I'm really surprised how accurate it is, just wish the index finger reader was slightly higher up towards the gun so that you wouldn't have to force your finger to bend to reach the reader but otherwise it works just as advertised
Fit well, shipped quickly, quality is good
