Assa Abloy Provides Lock for Innovative Sako Key Concept
Updated 2:42 PM ET January 17, 2000

LAS VEGAS (BUSINESS WIRE) - ASSA ABLOY, the world's largest and most experienced lock manufacturer, has been selected to
provide the locking mechanism for the innovative SAKO KEY CONCEPT, introduced today at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trades
(SHOT) Show at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

The SAKO KEY CONCEPT is a new built-in, locking mechanism on the Sako 75 hunting rifle activated by a special key unique to each rifle.
The key blends into the rifle contours when the lock is open and the gun is operational. When the key is removed, the lock takes effect and
the hunting rifle is completely safe and inoperative.

Paul-Erik Toivo, president of Sako Ltd., the Finland-based manufacturer of world-class hunting rifles, noted that the Sako 75 is considered to
be the very best bolt action rifle in the industry.

"It is only natural that as we wanted to offer the Sako 75 with added security and safety for its owner and society in general," said Toivo. "We
chose the very best lock maker in the world to deliver the lock. We cannot feel more secure than with the ASSA ABLOY lock in our new
KEY CONCEPT, which will be the new standard in gun safety."

The second-largest lock manufacturer in the United States, ASSA ABLOY provides the utmost security for the SAKO KEY CONCEPT, an
idea that is expected to revolutionize gun safety around the world.
