I’ll take “Locks” for $400 Alex

Are you tired of those clunky old number locks? The ones that have you endlessly searching your mommy/daddy brain for the number that will magically open the lock and let you get your street clothes out of your locker at the gym? Was that 3 to the left or 33 to the right?

Are you are always setting the combination numbers to your children’s birthday and now you have run out of children?

Are you constantly having to go through multiple keys just to get the lock off your bike?

Which ever the case may be, the answer is Wordlock!

Wordlock is the brain child of Todd Basche, Engineer and CEO. Todd was led to this brilliant invention, much like all great minds are led to their discovery. Humiliation.

“I had a small swimming pool in the backyard with a fence and an old combination lock on the gate. That lock was my nemesis. It seemed the hotter it was outside, the less I could remember the combo. One Saturday, I’m so frustrated by this stupid lock I try to climb the fence. And I’m halfway over, and I’m sweating, and I slip, and my swim trunks snag, and I yell, and the neighbors are watching me like I’m crazy. That’s when I had the idea for Wordlock…right after I pulled my shorts up.”

For many of us, words are much easier to remember than a sequence of numbers or which key belongs to which lock. Wordlock allows the user to set the combination of their lock to a word of their choice. Even “Poop”.



🙂 I just love their commercial.

As you can see, Wordlock has padlocks, bike locks, luggage locks, even big ‘ol commercial grade locks! So no matter what you need to lock up, they have a lock that will fit your needs.

The padlocks retail for $9.99 and can be found at numerous retailers including Walmart, Target, and Sears. You can also purchase them directly from the Wordlock Store.

As luck would have it, I get to give away a padlock to one lucky lock deprived reader!

  8. Erica C. says:

    I might use “Radar”…it’s my dog’s name. 🙂

  9. Rebecca says:

    I am one of those people that CANNOT remember numbers. It is a huge joke in my family. My husband bought me a cell phone and had to schmooze the rep into searching out the easiest number to remember so I could recall my own phone number. 😀

    I think I’d choose a french word for my combination. Maybe “apres”, “merci” or s-i-l-v-p for “s’il vous plait”.

  10. Mary Elderton says:

    I’d use “Telly”

  16. nikki wilson says:

    I would put no way as my combo since there is really no way I can remember anything else without writing it down.
