Locking zipper

When go outside, our belongings are always stolen,because our backpack is in the blind spot vision. In order to solve this problem,we designed a kind of locking zipper. If we latch the two zippers of the backpack with the locking zipper, it will form a closed circle with the anti-theft function. This kind of locking zipper which is made out of carbon fiber is linked lock-slot to lock cylinder. And it locks when the lock cylinder inserts into the side of the slot,while unlocks with fingerprint identifying. The front of the slot is solar panel which provides the necessary power for fingerprint identification.
