Unlock the World with Wordlock

Wordlock makes me a rockstar. When it comes to numbers, I have no retention. I dare say I zone out and hear nothing. Therefore I remember nothing. This has caused great frustration when it has come to padlocks. I have to write the combination down and then work myself up after locking my bike or locker that I will misplace the paper with the numbers. I’ve had to have my husband cut a bike chain because I failed to keep track of my paper. Todd Basche knows my pain. He invented the first Wordlock because no one in his family could remember number combinations. When he couldn’t find a Wordlock to buy, he just made one himself. Now, Wordlock products are sold worldwide, sparing people like me, the agony of numbers.

Basche was on to something. Words seem like the way to go. We use them to communicate. I watch my children memorize spelling words with little effort compared to an address or phone number. Wordlock uses this in their patented Worldlock algorithm, making it possible to use thousands of words to secure bikes, lockers, gang boxes, and luggage. This invention propelled us forwards and has earned Basche the Staples Invention Quest and “Top 100 New Inventions” by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Wordlock has luggage locks that are easy to read and easy to set. They also make traveling easy because airport security won’t be using bolt cutters to check your bags, thanks to Wordlock being “Travel Sentry® Approved,.” They’re also durable and keep what you have locked up safe and secure. They are great for locking backpacks, office desks, briefcases, and instrument cases.

I was sent the Wordlock padlock for review and fell in love with it. It appeals to how my brain functions. The instructions weren’t burdened with crazy details, just easy to follow and to the point. Wordlock even started the thinking for me with sample words I might choose to use. With five letter reels, I can create any four or five letter word. Each reel has ten letters to work with allowing a great selection of consonants and vowels. Some of the words suggested made me giggle, LOSER being one of them. In the end, I opted for a word that inspires me and makes me smile when I go to unlock my padlock.

Wordlock bike locks make securing the bike easy peasy. So many times when I have been out with the kiddos we’ve found ourselves at a store or location without a bike rack. Wordlock considers this giving a full five feet and a half inch thick cable to wrap around trees, posts, whatever! It’s a great feature, and you’ll come back knowing your possession is still secure. That in itself gives you PEACE of mind.

  • 10,000 possible letter combinations
  • Heavy-duty braided steel cable
  • All weather, color vinyl coating
  • 60 inches long x 0.4 inches thick (1524mm x 10mm)

I love not having to bog my brain down with numbers. I love Wordlock and the ease of use. It would be a great Valentine’s Day gift for the one you LOVE. There will be no going back to combinations of numbers once you dial in with Wordlock.
