The goLock VENTURE Innovative Security System at 2018 ICAST

I purchased my first fishing kayak in 2004.  I have taken my kayak to kayak fishing locations and tournaments in North Carolina and Florida from Pensacola to Key West to Wilmington, NC and points in between.  All with my kayak cabled to the roof of my Honda CRV.  All of these trips involved spending the night in hotels. Each time I arrived at the hotel and parked, I tried to park close to the front door and under parking lot lights.  I did this to mitigate the risk of someone stealing my kayak from the roof of my car.  That was then and today is now.  There is a new product that was demonstrated at ICAST by the goLock Technology Inc. company, the goLock Venture locking system. 
The goLock Venture locking system, as it was explained at their booth by Steve Jones, the inventor, is an electronic cable locking system that protects your kayak or other equipment or fishing gear from theft two ways: 1) triggering an audible 95 decibel alarm at location where the locking system is being used and 2) sending you an alert to an application on your smart phone using cellular or Bluetooth technology.  The Venture cables come in 1/8" and 3/8" diameter and in 3, 7, 10 and 20 foot lengths.  Talking about reducing the anxiety of leaving your kayak cabled to the roof of your vehicle or a trailer over night. 

This new product certainly does the trick.  Steve showed me, at the booth, how the alarm will go off even when the alarm was tampered with not being breached.  I really liked the ability to be alerted in my hotel room when someone was messing with my kayak. Steve said that the Venture security system was great for cyclist who cable their bike to bike stands. If you use your imagination, you can come up with other ways to use the Venture with its different cable lengths.  So before you invest in a cable security system, you really need to check out the goLock Venture. The goLock Venture coming to a outdoor specialty retailer soon.

Until next time, be safe in the sun and have a great day in the great outdoors.
