By Alex Kornbluth, ReutersThe new generation of locks on the cars of the 21st century are far more sophisticated than the ones that have been on the market for decades.
Key to this is the technology that powers them.
A device called a hair trigger, developed by Ford, makes it easier to lock the door.
But the key itself can be used to unlock a car without the need to unlock the car itself.
Ford’s new key can be attached to a car’s door using a hair clip and can be worn like a keychain or a key ring.
Ford said in a statement it has “shown the world the potential of the technology we are building” in the new Ford Focus, the company’s entry-level sedan.
Ford, however, is still waiting for regulators to approve the hair trigger as a locking system.
It would also be a significant advancement over previous locks.
For decades, locks have been used to prevent thieves from entering a vehicle, or in some cases, from accessing an owner’s vehicle.
But when a locksmith locks a car, he or she typically locks the door, not the key.
And locking a door requires the use of a key to open it.
This requires the key to be attached via a hair, which is not always possible with locks.
Ford is using its new locks to help with this.
The key-locking system works by allowing a vehicle to unlock using only a hair of the key, a key that can be removed without removing the keychain from the vehicle.
Ford has said the hair triggers will be in its new Focus, and it plans to begin production of the first of them in 2019.
Ford says the new hair triggers are designed to help reduce theft and prevent burglaries by making it harder to lock vehicles with a key, such as in a garage or in a hotel room.
Ford will sell the hair-releasing devices at $1,100 for the Focus.
The company plans to start selling them in its Focus Energi sedan, which will go on sale in 2020.
The company also plans to launch a key-lock app for the Ford Focus Energia, which would be available on iOS, Android and Windows phones, and could be used by customers who want to lock their cars to the home, office or garage.
Ford also plans a smartphone app to let customers lock their vehicles.
Ford Energexit is already available for iPhones, Android phones, Android tablets and Windows Phones, and is expected to be released for other platforms as well.
