If you’re a frequent traveler, you understand the need for luggage security, especially when you are flying to an unfamiliar territory.
There are several bags and luggage that have built-in security feature, but if don’t want to upgrade yet you can settle for a reliable lock such as the AirBolt Smart Travel Lock.
We featured this lock before when it was still a Kickstarter campaign. Here’s a summary of the write-up:
“For those of you not in the know, AirBolt is the world’s first truly smart travel lock. Designed for use on checked baggage but totally useful for a plethora of other reasons, AirBolt is a rope-based lock which uses Bluetooth in order to allow you to remotely activate (or deactivate) the locking mechanism right from your smartphone…AirBolt’s smartphone companion app will actually let you set up a backup unlock code for times when you don’t have your device around and even set alerts should your bag be stolen for you while at the airport or if it’s been misplaced by baggage handlers (Thanks, GPS!)”
As of today, the AirBolt lock still works the same way. It even has accidental locking prevention, which ensures AirBolt relocks only when the rope is not removed from the locking mechanism.
It also features a proximity alert so that you can ping your luggage if you can’t find it nearby. There’s also the access history that lets you know if it has been unlocked without your knowledge.
If you’re traveling with a companion, say, family or friends, you can also share the access with them as long as they have the app on their smartphones.
Lastly, the AirBolt Smart Travel Lock is TSA compliant; hence, you don’t have to worry about checking your locked luggage in.
AirBolt Smart Travel Lock is now available on the inStash shop for only $55 instead of $80.
