The Portable Door Lock - Splurge
Anyone who's ever stayed in a sketchy hotel, motel, or hostel will appreciate some added safety. Taking up less space than a normal combination lock, these portable door locks attach to just about any door frame without tools and will help prevent an unwelcome guest from busting in to your room.
Why We Like it: The Add-A-Lock is extremely easy to install once you've watched the instructional video, which features a child to show you just how easy it is to do. The lock feels well made, helping to give you a sense of security in an unfamiliar hotel room. A word of warning: Pack the lock in your checked bag, as the Add-A-Lock set off an airport security scan, which resulted in a tester's carry-on getting hand-searched.
