Have Safety and Security in a Hotel Room -2 Must Have Devices

Do you sleep with peace of mind knowing your hotel room door is really locked? Prevent entry into your locked hotel room while you are inside the room with a portable travel door lock. You may think it is hard to get into a hotel room without a key, but given the right tool, a little bit of time, and depending on the lock it can be done and done quickly.  That’s why you need to travel with two devices for your safety and the security of your possessions.

See for yourself.

#1 Must Have Travel Security Device is a Portable Door Lock for Personal Safety

When you are in the hotel room always use a secondary portable lock.  Below are some suggestions to secure your hotel door for peace of mind. Lightweight and small the portable travel door locks secure hotel rooms, dorm rooms, and homes by preventing entry even if someone has a key. Fortunately, there are various styles of secondary door locks you can use for additional security. Here’s quick review of a few of our favorites.

The Door Jammer – Portable Door Lock

The Door Jammer is placed at the foot of the door. Should the door be opened the horizontal force of the door swinging open is transferred  to the floor stopping the door from swinging open.

The Portable Door Lock

The portable door lock is placed in the strike place of the door lock in the frame. It offers resistance if the door is opened even with a key it works on lever style and knob style handles.Portable Travel Door Lock

Door Stop with Alarm

This item is the only one with a built-in alarm. It’s a door stop you use to stop the door from swinging open. Should entry be attempted the door will swing onto the plate pressing it down triggering an alarm. The alarm is 120 db which is loud enough to scare an intruder away and to wake you from sleep. The device has an on/off switch so it won’t accidentally go off in your luggage.Door Stop and Alarm portable door lock

Now watch the video below, and you’ll realize how important it is to lock up your valuables in your hotel room when you are not there. See how fast and easy some can enter your room without a key or key card.

#2 Must Have Travel Security Device is a Hotel Safe Lock or Portable Safe to Secure Your Gear

Is your gear safe when you leave your hotel room? Secure your values while you’re away from your hotel room by using a tamper-evident hotel safe lock for securing your valuables. Use a tamper-evident secondary lock such as the Milockie Hotel Safe Lock on the safe. Hotels have pass keys or pass codes to enter safes for guests who forget their code.

If your room doesn’t have a safe, or the gear you need to safeguard doesn’t fit inside the safe then plan on traveling with a portable travel safe. If you prefer, use a portable travel safe to secure your valuables. The safes store flat in your luggage and can be used in cars, dorms, outside, at home and in offices too, long after your trip is over. A couple of smaller and lightweight portable safes we like are:
