[GAOS] IC13’s Glock Boot

Last year I came across IC Arms & Accessories at the Great American Outdoor Show (GAOS) and posted about their AR-15 IC13 lock. Well they recently came out with a keyed lock for Glock Handguns. The IC-Lock for Handguns aka “Glock Boot” locks the Glock slide so the gun cannot be chambered or disassembled. The side opposite of the key hole is designed to interface with a wall mount so you can hang up your Glock if you so desired.

One interesting side effect feature is when you do not keep the slide open with the slide lock and you unlock the Glock Boot. You can insert a loaded magazine and once you unlock the lock, the slide will close and load the chamber at the same time. The Glock Boot retails for $35.


The Glock Boot will work with all Glock models except for the 42 & 43, however they do have a version just for those two models as well. IC13 also has a lock for the S&W Shield and are working on a new lock to work with Springfield XD. No word just yet on which XD models they will make the lock for. Possibly XDS, XD and XDM. Also no word yet on normal S&W M&P pistol locks just yet.

    Great, store your pistol with the recoil spring compressed for long periods of time, how stupid is that?

    • Marco Antonio Gonzalez

      My same thought. May be useful for short time periods

      1) In case you hadn’t noticed upon field stripping any semi auto pistol, they in fact DO sit around with the spring compressed even when the slide is forward.

      2) Spring life is not really affected by being compressed, but by repeated cycling from compressed to uncompressed.

    My Glocks stay loaded and easily accessible.

    Yet another way to separate gun owners from their hard earned cash.
    Seems to be a solution to a non-existent problem…..except in California.

    Finally a device that prevent that rogue ammunition from meeting up with equally rogue magazines to load itself.

    If it is wall mounted like in the picture it seems like a bad design if it chambers a round when you are not yet fully in control of where the gun is pointing. Especially when you are having to hold the pistol at 90 degrees to normal to get it off of the mount, I can imagine thumbs drifting round the grip getting pretty close to the trigger, especially if you are trying to unlock the gun under stress.

    I’m no lockologist but that looks like an easy lock to pick. looks like 4 pins on a single side.

    Unnecessary for an enthusiast such as myself, but cute and reasonably priced. A non-entheusiast still in their more-is-more phase with locks and safeties might get a warm-and-fuzzy from it without doing themselves or their gun any harm.


    Not a terrible price. No glocks in my safe though ?
