Northcore updates a best seller
The original Keypod was released back in 2004, invented by the founder of Northcore. The Keypod became something of a minor revolution amongst the surfing community. No longer did surfers need to hide their vehicle keys, they could now lock them away in a portable safe. Keypod was the first and as others try to follow Keypod continues to lead as it brings out the next generation Keypod 5Gs.
Maintaining the fundamental concept of secure key storage, the latest 5th Generation Keypod 5Gs design features a thicker alloy body, a tougher braced lid which pivots from the base and has a stronger sprung fastening mechanism to improve longevity, dual lid locking, integrated shackle combination setting plus a 10mm steel shackle.
Just place in your items, choose a solid anchor point on the car (or any safe place) to secure the padlock shackle, close the lid and shackle and set the combination. Keypod is a simple, robust, portable, weather resistant, secure storage safe for keys and other valuables designed to deter would be thieves. It has a four digit combination padlock with an integrated storage cavity which is large enough to hold all known modern electronic vehicle keys (and keyless keys), household keys, spare change, credit cards and even some mobile phones. It’s an essential piece of kit that’s going to last for years. Key features include:
* 10mm thick steel padlock shackle
* Full width steel pin engineered into the hinge for additional strength
* Integrated shackle combination reset mechanism
* Super tough 3mm thick foam backed corrosion resistant alloy body
* Internal dimensions: L 9cm x W 6.3cm x D 2.8cm
* Fits all known vehicle keys and immobilisers
* Simple maintenance, wipe dry and occasional oiling will ensure years of reliable use
