Gary Fong, Inc. recently launched a new line of products with the introduction of GearGuard, a series of camera and equipment security devices that provide photographers with a seamless theft prevention system for their gear.
The flagship products in this new line include the GearGuard Camera Body Lock and the GearGuard Bag Lock, both of which are designed to safeguard a camera from the constant snatch-and-grab threat faced by photographers.
With the GearGuard Camera Body Lock in place, the camera body can be secured to any fixed object granting the photographer the freedom to focus on the moment at hand, rather than worry about equipment disappearing. Constructed of an impervious plastic compound, the twin-plate design provides a solid anchoring point through which the GearGuard Security Cable is threaded and affixed to any anchor point using the GearGuard Combination Lock. The Camera Body Lock attaches to the camera’s tripod mount and can remain attached during shooting without interfering with the photographer’s process. The screw, which attaches the lock to the camera body, features a threaded port, enabling the camera to maintain full compatibility with a tripod, ballhead or quick release plate.
“For years, photographers have had serious concerns about the vulnerability of their equipment to theft while they’re busy shooting an event or working with customers, and we all have horror stories about expensive gear turning up missing. Whether you measure the value of your camera and gear in hundreds or thousands, our compact GearGuard products will ensure safe travel and storage at an affordable price,” said Gary Fong, CEO of Gary Fong, Inc. “With the launch of our GearGuard line, photographers can safely devote their full attention to their craft rather than continually worrying about their costly equipment.”
Both the GearGuard Camera Body Lock and the Bag Lock (which is sold as a set of two units) are available for $9.95 MAP. The Combination Lock and 36” steel security cable is sold separately and is also available for $9.95 MAP.
In the near future, the company plans to expand the GearGuard line to round out this comprehensive integrated security system. For more information or to purchase GearGuard products, please visit GaryFong.com.
