A SECURITY device designed by a Hillsborough businessman is attracting world-wide interest.

Adrian Maginnis is the brain behind the Loxsit security system, which secures vehicles to the ground making theft extremely difficult for both the opportunist and most experienced thief.

The local inventor invested heavily in research and development to create the security device, which is already attracting interest from Europe and the United States.

With a background in the international steel industry, Adrian has an eye for a good invention. He has harnessed the manufacturing skills of Northern Irish engineering specialists SIC Hutchinson and now has a network of over 60 resellers throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. Thousands of All Terrain Vehicles, Quad Bikes and Horse Trailers valued at millions of pounds are believed to be stolen every year in the UK but that is soon to be a thing of the past, according to Adrian.

"Most people think of Quads as an expensive 'boys toy', but in fact they are an invaluable all terrain vehicle for the farming community in particular and many other industry sectors where people need to move across country quickly and efficiently.

"Typically these vehicles cost thousands of pounds and even kept under traditional lock and key they are a magnet for thieves who know they can be easily transported and resold," explained Adrian.

Adrian added that with soaring insurance premiums he has gained approval with many insurance companies who will "who will reduce premiums for those using Loxsit."

Adrian also revealed that whiff, Loxsit - which has been awarded the Gold Standard security approval from Sold Secure, the nationally recognised Master locksmiths independent testing house - is a simple idea, a lot of technological expertise and investment has been required to get it to the stage of international distribution.

"My ambition is to be the world industry standard and to produce variations for many other types of vehicles. In terms of Northern Ireland inventions we may yet be up there with the Ferguson Tractor and the Defibrillator," added Adrian
