The Pacsafe Travel Safe 100 is a unique product that was designed to offer affordable security by providing piece of mind for wary travelers by alleviating one of their greatest fears…THEFT.
The Travel Safe 100 is a compact, lightweight security pouch which is ideally sized for the protection of wallets, passports, cameras, jewelry, PDA’s, CD’s, personal electronics, or any small items you want to protect. It is kind of a portable lockbox for your valuables.
How does the Travel Safe work?
Once your items are placed into the Travel Safe, the top of the pouch is closed by cinching the stainless steel coil
drawstring which is woven into the top of the pouch. The drawstring coil secures the bag and is kept firmly closed by a reinforced high-impact resistant polycarbonate locking system. The steel coil is then wrapped around or through a stationary device (tree, metal frame, bicycle) and fastened with a hardened shackle brass padlock.
What’s Unique about the exterior or the Travel Safe?
Its design…Period! Nothing else like it can be found on the market. First off, it is lightweight and only weights 9 ounces (250g). The uniqueness of the Travel Safe 100 is the
incorporation of the Pac Safe patented “eXomesh” interlocking security system process, which focuses around the strength of stainless steel-mesh security. The Travel Safe security pouch is constructed from high-tensile, 1½ inch flexible stainless steel wire, which is laminated between two rugged, weather-resistant pieces of waterproof nylon. The inside of the Travel Safe has an additional inner canvas layer which provides added protection of the bags contents.
The Travel Safe 100 patented construction process, the first of its kind, was designed to frustrate slash-and-run and casual thieves alike. Most casual thieves are opportunists and are casually walking around beaches, hotels, and other locations looking for property they can easily pick up and walk away with. This product prevents this type of theft.
The next level of criminal is one who thinks they may come across something of value, but might be inside a car, left in a backpack, or locked behind a door. These thieves sometimes referred to as “Slash and Run” thieves are more committed to their life of thievery and are specifically looking for items to steal. They are known to use to two simple “tools of the trade,” a knife or a simple screwdriver. Either of which will allow them entry into a wide variety of bags, backpacks, doors, or cars within a few seconds. The deployment of the Pac-Safe Travel Safe 100 also provides protection from this type of thief by providing a added layer of protection. A thief using a screwdriver on the Travel Safe 100 would be hard pressed to open it with a screwdriver. It would be virtually impossible with a standard knife.
Lets not fool anyone; the Travel Safe is by no means completely fool proof. No security item is. You could get into this pouch with a pair or bolt cutters and a hammer, however the majority of thieves a traveler will encounter don’t walk around with bolt cutters and hammers.
Where to use the Travel Safe
The Travel Safe can be used anywhere that opportunistic theft is a risk, especially by travelers. Here are just a few ideas:
If you stay in a hotel which does not have a room safe, or you do not want to pay the additional charge to use the in-room safe, what do you do. Some travelers use the security deposit box at the front desk, but many simply do not want to bother.
Many travelers simply “hide” their items of value at places they think a thief or a “Thieving Maid” would not find. Unfortunately, most people who have stolen before know the most common places that travelers use to hide property. This is where the Travel Safe works best. You simply secure your items in the Travel Safe and secure it to anyone one of a number of stationary locations within a hotel room. Some travelers have locked the Travel Safe around a hotel door handle or radiator pipe, and then hung a towel over it so no one would be the wiser. Others have locked it to a metal desk or table and covered in with a piece of clothing. Other locations have included wrapped around the back tank of the room toilet.
You rent a motorcycle while traveling, are simply out for a day trip, or are a courier, where do you secure your valuables if you don’t want to carry them? If you have locking saddle bags, they help, but the locks are not very sturdy. If the saddle bags are leather, they are easily slashed. The Travel Safe is simply locked to the bike frame.
Rental cars and convertibles are easy targets for thieves to steal property, however the Travel Safe solves the issues by allowing you to secure the Safe to the inside hinge of the car trunk or under the car seat to the frame bracket.
Boats – Personal Water Craft
Going to go to the boat dock to pick up a few items or have lunch or go into town, Use the Travel Safe to lock up your property.
Going to take a shower or go for a walk. Don’t think hiding your property will do the trick. Deploy the Travel Safe 100 around a tree or stationary object.
If you are staying at a large resort in a destination that is prone to crime, you need to rememer that at some of these locations it is very easy for someone to enter the pool area pretending to be a guest and simply pick up someones valuables when they are in the pool. The travel Safe is a great solution.
Trains, Buses and Ferries
Anyone who has traveled abroad has heard the horror stories of someone falling asleep on a train or ferry, only to wake and find some of their property stolen from gypsies or thieves. Independent travelers can now nap without worry. By locking the Travel Safe to the seats of trains, buses and ferries, helps protect your property.
Clubhouse, Gym, or Recreation Facilities
One of the largest problems facing the workout club industry is the locker room theft. Here is just one headline: “New Yorkers are shedding more than extra pounds at city health clubs - they're losing credit cards, Rolexes, Palm Pilots and other valuables at an alarming rate. Burglaries in locker rooms at gyms, especially in Manhattan, have become "a very frequent occurrence," a law-enforcement official told The Post. "If you don't know this is happening all the time, you should know this is happening all the time," the source warned health-club goers. The NYPD last week charged a 21-year-old Queens man with looting a number of lockers at a downtown New York Sports Club gym. Cops say he gained entrance with an NYSC membership card that was bought with a credit card stolen from a locker at a Midtown Bally gym. Cops are investigating more than 100 health-club burglaries in Manhattan alone since December, sources said. Simple enough reason for using the Travel Safe at the gym.
One of the most common location where people are victimized is atthe beach. People want to go swimming or are distracted while talking to some one, allowing just enough time to walk away with valuables. Use the Travel Safe 100 to secure your items while surfing or snorkeling. Simply secure the safe to a tree or other stationary item
