Some of the world’s greatest inventions include the airplane, fire, alcohol (our personal favorite), proton therapy machines and many more.  But those all suddenly seem so trivial and trite, especially after getting wind of the Pint Lock from Ben and Jerry’s.

That’s right, you can now lock down your pint of ice cream from hoarding spouses and roommates much like you’d lock up a gun or thousands of dollars in jewels.  The Pint Lock fits over the top of the pint and locks into place until the ice cream owner dials in the 3 digit pin.  We can’t say for certain, but we’re assuming the Pint Lock comes in two pieces, with the bottom portion slipping over the bottom of the pint and the locking portion over the top.  Once the two pieces are clipped into place it can’t be removed, unless you know the pin (no duh).    To help remove some of the shock and awe from the would thief’s experience, they’ve included a message on the side of the Pint Lock that reads I’m terrible sorry, but their is no “u” in “my pint”.

The Pint Lock sells directly on Ben and Jerry’s website for $6.64 (random pricing).

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
