Homeowners can now take advantage of a solution to package theft during this holiday season.

It's called "Landport," and Jody Pettit developed it after a family heirloom was stolen from her mother's doorstep.

"It happened to me over three years ago when my mom sent me a precious teacup from Iowa that had been in our family since 1840. It was stolen off my front porch in Portland. Since that time, I have been working on a solution."

Pettit says the Landport is a charming powder coated steel lock box that you can bolt to your front porch.

She designed it so you can share the code with your delivery driver, through the UPS, or delivery instructions.

Pettit says the latch, lock, and key parts are all made in Iowa.
