New Propane-Valve Security Lock

Posted in News, Archive, News, Happenings

Lock America International of Corona, Calif., a manufacturer of security hardware for the self-storage, coin-op, gaming and vending industries, now offers a valve-locking system for retail, residential, and industrial propane tanks. The technology will be useful for self-storage operators who rent propane tanks out of their facility as an ancillary service or those who rent space for RVs that have propane tanks. 
The patent-pending lock, with a unique registered key code, blocks the outlet valve of a propane tank, preventing the release of gas. The key-operated plug lock serves as a valve block for the tank valve. Residential and industrial tanks can then be “locked-up” for non-payment or to protect against unauthorized access. The valve also protects propane tanks on RVs against theft. 
The valve can be easily removed when a tank is sold or rented, or when a delinquent customer pays his bill. It can also be reused on other tanks.
