Travel bag next big thing


You’ll never again need to remember a combination on your suitcase or carry a lock and key for your travel bag, because the LockSmart Travel Lock uses your smartphone to allow access to your bag.


Dog & Bone’s LockSmart Travel Padlock is a keyless travel lock that is TSA approved and uses a ‘virtual key’ on your smartphone. And when your phone is in Bluetooth range, you can track its whereabouts, which is great for locating it on the carousel and also to make sure your bag is on the plane.


You can lend it to friends or family and send them a virtual key that can be also be rescinded with a single swipe. It’s battery lasts for up to two years or 3000 opens and the app alerts you to when it needs to be recharged. 



Other feature of the lock include:

  • notifies you when and by whom your bag was opened
  • weather resistant
  • unlimited virtual keys
  • manage more than one lock in the one app
  • secure 128-bit advanced encryption
  • 256-bit cloud generated private key for added security
  • compatible with IOS devices using Bluetooth 4.0 or higher and running iOS 8.2 or later
