" ProjectChildSafe" is the nation's largest firearm safety education program.
Since 2003, the nationwide distribution of safety kits that includes a cable-style gun locking device
and safety education materials, has reminded gun owners to properly store firearms in the home in
order to prevent a loaded firearm from falling into the hands of a child, thereby preventing tragic accidents.
A gun lock (also called a trigger lock) is a vinyl-covered steel cable that you thread through the
chamber on a pistol, revolver, or rifle to prevent the firearm's action from closing. It resembles a
smaller version of a bicycle cable lock in which both ends are secured by a padlock that can quickly
be opened with a key.
Gun locks fit most -- but not all -- guns
