Tapplock one+

As people grow older some of the simplest tasks can become challenging such as having to recall information on the spot or where you placed certain items. February was Senior Independence Month and it’s still the ideal time to find tools that can make a senior’s life easier without having to compromise their independence. Tapplock one+ is a smart fingerprint padlock that utilizes a person’s fingerprint to open, making combinations and keys a thing of the past. The lock can store multiple fingerprints to allow other users access and it is completely waterproof, meaning you can use the lock to secure gates, sheds or other outdoor equipment without having to worry about water damage. 

Tapplock one+ allows seniors to secure valuables without having to remember combinations or keys!
