Patlock wins Best New Product Award at Totally DIY & Tools

Patlock, the Secured by Design internal patio door security device recommended by crime prevention officers, has won the Best New Product in Show. The New Product Showcase and Innovation Zones were sponsored by BHETA, British Home Enhancement Trade Association.

Two Highly Commended certificates were also awarded: for Grakob’s PlumbThumbs radiator capping tool and Trig Jig’s digital coving and skirting mitring tools.

Patlock’s certification under the Secured by Design scheme has led to police crime prevention officers recommending its use to householders, especially where there is an elderly or vulnerable person in the home. “One of the main forms of criminal entry to properties is through lock snapping from the outside of patio doors. Patlock secures patio door handles from the inside of the home,” says Sales Director Jim Law. “The quick-release method inside the home means Patlock can be removed by the householder with ease when required.”

Already stocked in major retail outlets, Patlock is expanding its network of independent retail stockists by exhibiting at Totally DIY & Tools. Patlock Managing Director, Craig Knott, added: “There are so many good products in the BHETA Innovation Zone and the show’s New Product Showcase that we are honoured to have won this award. This is our first time at Totally DIY & Tools and we’ve found it a great show.”

Two products also achieved Highly Commended status, the first of which being Grakob’s PlumbThumbs. A device for capping off radiator connections so that radiators can be removed without draining, it is aimed at both the retail DIY and builders’ merchant market.

Also Highly Commended were TrigJig digital coving and skirting mitring tools, suitable for DIYers and tradesmen alike. TrigJig tools are particularly useful for mitring awkward angles. Already receiving great accolade via their Facebook page, TrigJig’s producers, HICI Ltd, launched the range to the trade at Totally DIY & Tools 2017.
