Gadling gear review – Wordlock luggage lock

Hands up if you ever arrived at your destination (or back home) and couldn’t remember the 4-digit combination to your luggage. Wordlock is a product that could finally make locking and unlocking your luggage a lot easier.

The lock uses 4 letter dials to protect your luggage instead of dials with numbers. The lock has 10,000 possible combinations (same as with numbers) which means you can pick words like TEST, BYTE or HATS to safeguard your items.

The locks support the Travel Sentry key system, which means TSA inspectors will be able to open the bag without pulling out their bolt cutters.

Each lock is made of sturdy vinyl coated metal with a 1 1/2″ shackle. The locks are available in 5 colors (seen above) and retail for $9.99. The locks are are available directly from the Wordlock site and in store or online at several major retailers.
