In a recent survey of police chiefs and other gun lock give-a-way program administrators,
the cable-style lock was designated as the most popular choice. The benefits of the cable locks include:
* Guns must be unloaded before cable locks can be secured.
And because the gun is unloaded it helps prevent accidental discharges.
* Ability to fit many different types of firearms.
* Visible deterrent–making the gun less attractive to curious children or potential thieves
* NAFTA-compliant product, (meets Sense of Congress for federal funding).
