  1. I’m a delivery guy for amazon and we wont take our time to use these because our jobs suck.

    • @Bobofet241 Yah? they gonna follow me around to make sure I use it? If something like that does happen, I’ll put the package on top, in spite of that stupid rule.

    • @Tullock They wouldn’t have to follow you around to tell if you use it or not.

    • @Tullock You are so right. I came here to say that no delivery person is going to do this. It is too complicated and takes time when they already don’t have enough time.

    More time/work for the delivery person. It will slow down production.

  3. They will just take the entire box..lol..

  4. really smart!

  5. I thought a Ring Pitbull would be better

  6. Look up “Keter Package Delivery” on amazon, available for purchase today. Simple and better design IMO. Secure without any futzing for the delivery person.

    Could just do a box with a combo lock or have it unlocked then they lock it after

  9. I was doing it wrong all I have is a large locking box on my porch.

    Couldnt someone just steal the “boxr” and/or smash the lock? I also hear that electronic locks can be “picked” with a very strong magnet.

    This was already reported 3 months ago 🤣😅😆

  13. TALK TO YOUR LOCAL COUNCILLOR AND LET THEM KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD NEEDS AND SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE BOXES FOR THE LOCAL RESIDENTS. WHERE ONLY THE ACCOUNT HOLDER THAT ORDERED THE ITEM CAN SCAN THE BOX WITH THEIR SMARTPHONE TO CONFIRM THEY ARE THE OWNER OF THE PACKAGE IN THE BOX BEFORE IT OPEN THE LID.

  14. We already have boxes, we already have locks. Box + lock = box with lock.
    It’s brilliant.

    we have this for many years ,i deliver newspaper and magazines

  16. Double score now I doubt many will bolt this down.

  17. Well just steal the boxr along with the packages.

  18. There are probably 1000 other ones already invented

  19. They will take the whole box next time
