Dear Gary Ryan,
As a builder of million dollar homes on Vancouver's
West Side, I have researced many locking systems to
ensure the safety of a home and its inhabitants. I
can personally testify that the Sure Lock Homes
Defense System is the finest and the most encompassing
safety locking system that can be installed in a home.
It is far superior to the best deadbolt system on
the market today. Having had two units installed in
my own home, I know that my family feels more secure
once the floor latch is bolted into place. I would
strongly recommend it for every type of home.

To whom it may concern,
Hello my name is Barry Cavanaugh, owner of Penta
Homes Ltd -builders of high quality homes. Over the
last 2 years I have used the Sure-Lock product extensively
in over 50 homes. As a matter of fact, I highlight
the lock to potential buyers as an added security
benefit. I've had nothing but positive reactions to
this lock and cannot begin to stress the amount of
pleasure I have selling one of our homes with this
lock installed - I think all homes should have one.
I 'm currently building new homes in a new subdivision
in White Rock, B.C and I will not hesitate to install
the Sure-Lock in every house I build.
Quite simply, I love the product and concept because
of the added security it offers.
Keep up the great work and I look forward to installing
our next shipment of Sure-Locks very soon.

Dear Gary Ryan:
I am writing in regards to the recent purchase and
installation of your "Sure-Lock" floor /
door locking system. First, I would like to congratulate
you on developing this lock, and second, I wish to
thank you for the professional, efficient installation
you provided us. As you may be aware, we called to
inquire about this lock after reading several stories
about your company in the local paper. It was refreshing
to read about a local citizens crusade to help prevent
the public from forced entry's and break-ins. I run
a research company and from time to time we store
sensitive information in our office. The added security
that Sure-Lock is providing us is very gratifying.
We had the lock installed early last week and I have
to tell you, this lock is pure ingenuity. Not only
is it extremely simple to use, it actually works.
Of course I had to make sure, so I had a few of the
big guys around the neighbourhood give my door the
test. No match, Sure-Lock was victorious. Mind you,
the door itself was a little bruised up (as was there
shoulders), but there was no way they were getting
through my door with the Sure-Lock engaged.
Once again thank you for your courteous service and
solid design in what I refer to as our "Home

To Whom It May Concern:
Re: Sure-Lock Homes Defense System
I am a police officer and have investigated numerous
residential and commercial 'Break & Enter's' in
the Lower Mainland of British Columbia over the past
30 years. The simplest and most frequent point of
access is through an entry door. The technology of
door construction and lock hardware has advanced over
the years and in most cases is adequate to maintain
a decent limitation of unauthorized entry .The use
of alarm systems has also had an effect on these occurrences;
however, with sufficient applied force to any door
unauthorized entry might still be accomplished. Our
community's fear of the recent phenomenon of 'home
invasion style' unauthorized entry to occupied residences
and businesses has emphasized the need for supplemental
locking systems. Current supplemental locking systems
and the visual access/identification options available
can still leave the occupant(s) at risk.
Supplemental locking systems are often employed; in
most cases they either eliminate the effectiveness
of the primary door security lock system, or are not
of sufficient design/construction to provide an adequate
level of supplemental security.
A supplemental locking system that can provide an
additional level of security along with the primary
locking system will effectively reduce unauthorized
I have seen the effectiveness of the Sure-Lock Homes
Defense System. It has two levels of additional security,
first, providing a floor level supplement to a property
installed door hinge and locking system; and second,
allowing an occupant to identify and communicate with
persons outside the door with 'door ajar' security.
I feel confident in installing this system on each
of the four entry doors of my residence. Having recently
completed renovations of our family home and in keeping
with the 'craftsman style' of home, this locking system
is of superior quality and is not visually detracting,
while providing the effective supplemental level of
security I would like for my family and property.
I have no hesitation in recommending this locking
system as a supplement to any door with properly installed
hinge and locking hardware. This product is well-designed,
excellent quality of manufacture, is easily installed
and readily operated by anyone, whether they are a
child or senior citizen.
Yours truly, Nels J.

I have just recently retired and I live alone. I spend
a lot of time at home and I sometimes felt quite nerves,
with crime the way it is these days. My son installed
SURE-LOCK for me about three months ago and I really
do feel safe and secure in my home. Thank you for
giving me back the confidence and piece of mind I
so desperately need at my age. I would recommend this
lock to anyone, it is just fantastic.

To the makers of Sure-Lock.
Thank you, since we have installed SURE-LOCK the whole
family feels more secure especially at night. This
is truly a great product. Our friends come over and
the first thing they do is start playing with the
lock, it's really quite funny. We have two teenage
boys; they are supposed to be home buy 11pm they are
never late because they can't sneak in any more, it's
great. This is truly a wonderful product.
Best regards, Al, Barb & family. Surrey, B.C.
To whom it may concern;
My daughter is 18 years old and has just recently
moved into her own apartment with a girlfriend. I
was very reluctant about the whole thing until I heard
about this lock of yours. I installed one as a house-warming
gift; I can now sleep a whole lot better at night
knowing she is safe, and she has admitted she sleeps
better as well, knowing that SURE-LOCK is there. I
have just recently installed two at our house as well.

Dear Mr. Ryan
I have been using SURE-LOCK in my home now for about
six months. It's been the best investment I have ever
made. I am a single mother with two children ages
7 and 14. I have just recently had one installed at
my office because I find myself working late into
the night. The kid's just love it and so do I. Thank
you for coming up with such a brilliant invention.
Dear Alex Potter,
I recently had a very traumatic home invasion experience.
My wife and I left our house for app.45 mins. and
during that time the front door was kicked in and
we were robbed.
The items taken were very personal, jewelry, old
coins and family heirlooms, items which can never
be replaced. More importantly we were robbed of our
sense of being safe in our own home.
When they kicked the dead bolt system on the door
literally exploded the door jam and offered very little
resistance to the intruders.
After this incident we felt very unsafe in our home,
which led me to search the Internet for a safer door
locking system. When I found the Sure Lock system
I immediately ordered two locks. I installed the locks
myself without any difficulty and I am extremely impressed
with the quality and concept of this product.
Thanks to you and your Sure Lock defence system we
feel safe at home again.
Thank you for your prompt service and follow up phone
