Qicklock Temporary Security Door Lock $5.99 Delivered @ Qicklock

1850

Greetings everyone, really glad to see this deal back again. I can safely say from experience that it's one of the most handy tools for travelling, as it allows you to lock any door when you're inside the room. Particularly useful in applications such as share accommodation. It doesn't work as an application to lock the door while you are out of the room.

This usually goes for ~$10.


Description:

Airport security? no problem. Staying in a dodgy hotel to save money? No problem. Renting and can't change the locks? No problem. No installation …. No key required…

The lock fits most left or righthand inward opening doors fitted with a latch.It is lightweight and fits and releases in seconds. Whether the door has a lock, no lock or the lock is broken this portable lock can be used. Can be carried in on-board luggage through airport security.


As always, enjoy!

      Ditto. Bought 3, one for me and one for each parental unit, both of whom are big travelers. Looks like an awesome, cheap gift.

      I dont know why you were negged. You have a valid point.
      Can even buy 2x 120db doorstop-alarm for $9.
      Mod decided to block the link I added :/

        I dont know why you were negged.

        Because those doorstop alarms are stupid, much heavier and far less effective.

      Think the main point of this is for temporary use when you might be travelling and unsure of the security of the place you live at. Was handy when I went to Europe

        Aren't they only for when you are there though (inside the room) to keep others from coming in ?
        Or am I missing something, and they can be used for security when out of the room and out of the hotel/airBnB alltogether .

        • +1 vote

          Only when you're inside. It's the equivalent of a latch

        •  

          @Davo1111: If you are going to be in the room, I would think 120db doorstop alarm would be more of a deterent. Once that thing goes off, I doubt they would try again. If its just a latch type scenerio, they might keep coming back and trying to open through the night etc.
          Sad that we would need such devices, I guess random drunks wandering round outside hotel/airBnB room at night :/
          I have a smart camera setup with sound alert, and smart switch wall plug. Could set camera next to alarm, with sound alert on. Set so when sound alert activate, smart switch wall plug goes on, playing loud sound effect of chainsaw and maybe a machine gun etc (if you really wanted to deter any intruder from outside).
          Doorstop alarm goes off, next they hear chainsaw, machine guns, canon, rocket launcher :) lol

          @ozzpete:
          How many times have you been in a public crapper and the door lock is broken?
          Or hotels where the cleaners open the door and come in the room regardless of the do not disturb sign on the door?
          I'm getting a couple for travelling because they are small and light, and because wife can keep one in her bag. She should feel safe in a public toilet.

        •  

          @TheSmegger:
          Best use so far I have heard. +1 for public toilets.
          Its unfortunate, but so many public toilets are vandalised and the locks broken. This still would not stop someone who wanted to get through, but would stop someone accidentally pushing it open (when they dont realise its occupied, and lock is broken).

    i got one from last deal, and happy with it.
    However, it would have been better if that little metal piece is attached to the plate by a chain or something. (like this https://www.zapals.com/portable-door-lock-safety-travel-lock...)

    I was interested to out find more about this product so checked out the website.

    I am intrigued as to what the selling point/angle of this picture on their site is…

    How long has this thing had patent pending?

    • +2 votes

      Probably refused already. Common ploy to fake legal protection in order to scare of competition. If you are interested it is free to check if there is a patent on a product.

    Bought a 3 pack of these last time they were on special a couple of years ago, and in true OzB style they’ve sat in the drawer ever since…

    Does it work with a sliding glass door which has a revolving stopper but not a proper lock? See image here: http://imgur.com/AHnTqID

    •  

      It sits in between the gap in a door and a pin is slipped in to stop it opening inwards ..sliding door would just fall out .. as they've said above for you to use when you are in that room .. not for when you leave to go out.

    Do you rent?

    No locks on your bedroom door?

    Kids don't understand how important it is to knock before entering?

    Bought two. They work great for what we need them for. It's nice to not have to stay covered up the entire time "just in case".

    • +2 votes

      Life lesson for the kids… they'll knock next time.. or use your super sonic hearing listen for that cover getting thrown back so you can remove yourself from the wife and cover yourself…. stealth skill 100.. ears seem to be getting hairier as I get older and I think this is muffling by bat like hearing so might dust off the one I bought when this first came out.

    I bought a few of these when they first came out, still have them, and have always come in handy.

    So how do I lock from the inside And go out if I wante to buy something?

  •  

    Been to 42 countries and just came back from Mexico, Guatemala and Cuba 2 weeks ago - cannot think of a single time i would have needed this.

    can easily open doors with this just by pushing…

    •  

      Have you been able to do this on various doors, or is it dependent on how snug the door shuts inside of the jamb? It would seem it wouldn't keep selling if this were true 100% of the time.

      Many others here vouch it works as advertised— but I'm curious what your exact experience was. When you say, "push", are you leaning on the door or really slamming it with a shoulder, etc?

      •  

        For me it’s the shoulder, they are good as a deterrent but definitely should not be used as a safety device

  • +1 vote

    it allows you to lock any door that might not have a lock!

    This post really needs to be edited to explain it cannot lock door while you are away from hotel room .
    If that were the case, I would have bought one.
    Since this only works like a latch to keep others out, when you are inside the room, it is much less useful than implied by the post.
    With 150 upvotes, I wonder how many others were misled into believing "it allows you to lock any door that might not have a lock!" Thinking they could use it to lock room while they are out of the hotel or airBnB etc.

      This thing is to jam a door shut so you can have a wank in the room without the risk of getting caught, or when sleeping if you don't want to be walked in on by whoever else is around, noisy kids even. This little device is the equivalent of pressing a dining chair up against the door handle.

      Have updated the description for that, thanks :)

    I have this from a previous deal, yes it’s handy to lock someone out but I took one on a trip and when a mate was trying to get in as the door had “unlocked” with a key he thought something was jammed behind the door so gave it a shoulder barge and it opened the door.

    I tested this too and the metal is soft enough to flatten if someone wanted to get in. Good for teenage kids, not good for safety

      There's no structural integrity from the way it's designed, nor is there really a way to do it so it fits.

    •  

      At the very least it would give a prospective intruder a sense that there is additional locks on the door when the handle lock doesn't open the door. Might be enough to deter them.

    Gave one of these to a relative for a present. They opened it up, the round locking bit fell out, hit the floor and literally vanished, never to be seen again. There really ought to be a little bit of string holding the pieces together or something.
