The Benjilock is the World’s First Traditional Rechargeable Padlock featuring fingerprint technology and traditional keys.
The incredible padlock is capable of holding up to four distinct fingerprints
that are saved in an encrypted chip. If an unauthorized individual tries to unlock it, all of this information is deleted.
Since its inception, the fingerprint padlock lock has won numerous awards for its innovative patented technology.

After the show aired, the rights to Benjilock were sold to Hampton Products International, a manufacturer of security hardware including door locks and padlocks.
And in a highly emotional, televised appearance, Hampton CEO Kim Kelley presented Cabral with his first royalty check for $100,000.

The company initially hoped to have the lock available just in time for the back to school season this 2018, but it looks like they’ve run into development issues that will extend the release date into the holiday season.
