Barracuda Door Locks: an intruder defense system

The BILCO Company has teamed up with Troy Lowe, a military veteran and SWAT team member, to manufacture door security devices. Designed based on Lowe’s experience as a law enforcement professional and an active-shooter training instructor, these locking devices can be installed in a matter of seconds in emergency situations to protect occupants against building intruders.

Features and Benefits:

  • Fast and easy; installs in a matter of seconds
  • Securely locks an entry point in a lock-down situation
  • Free-standing device (not permanently attached to door).
  • Can be easily transferred to another access point
  • No maintenance or installation costs required
  • Less expensive than locksets and much more secure than small, inexpensive devices
  • Made in America

The Product Inventor’s Story

Over the past few years, Troy has instructed thousands of people on how to react during emergency lockdown situations. He has seen firsthand how quickly people panic and lose their fine motor skills during these simple training exercises. This reaction helped Troy recognize there was a need for a door security product that is simple to use, strong and highly effective in an actual emergency or lockdown situation.
