You're in a hotel room and hear a noise outside in the corridor, and suddenly feel a little spooked. Is there a chance someone could break in?
While the vast majority of hotel staff are above reproach - as indeed are most of your fellow hotel guests - it would be naive to think that some people aren't always on the look-out for an opportunity to steal something.
The EasyLock is a portable door lock which aims to give you an extra feeling of safety when you're in a strange room. It's lightweight and temporary, and you secure your door by latching it into the lockplate on the door frame.
Once securely in position, it means no one can enter your hotel room, even if they have a key or keycard. It costs approximately €30.
