Image Lock looks like a traditional combination lock that you'd put on your locker, except that on each one, the numbers have been replaced with tiny pictures. This makes combinations extra-memorable since anyone can create a story from the pictures in order to help themselves remember. Therefore, this type of lock is an ideal choice for kids or seniors who have begun to struggle with their memory, and virtually anyone who's got a lot on their mind.
The cost of Image Lock is $9.99 plus $4.99 shipping, for a total price of $14.98.

Each Image Lock comes with a distinct factory-set combination, so you'll need to look at your packaging in order to identify this sequence of pictures. Once you memorize the sequence (by using a self-created story, if necessary), you'll be ready to use your lock. You may also want to write your combination down and store the piece of paper in a place in which it won't be easily found by others.
Next, attach your lock to a place of your choice. You could attach it to a cabinet, a gym locker, a school locker, or even a toolbox—the possibilities are nearly endless. Due to the fact that each lock has a hard steel shackle and is rust-resistant, it's suitable for use both outdoors and in.
Once your lock is securely attached to the place you've chosen, you can walk away knowing that any items being stored behind it are safe and secure. The hard steel shackle is incredibly difficult to cut, and each Image Lock contains anti-shim technology that will help prevent people from picking the lock with other small objects. When you need to open the lock again, simply open it as you would an ordinary combination lock with numbers, but by using the appropriate picture sequence instead.
Every Image Lock is about the same size as a traditional numbered combination lock. That means each one won't take up a great deal of space when it's hanging somewhere, nor will it feel like a heavy weight to lug around when you're transporting it from place to place. Its small size will enable you to fit it into nearly any backpack, briefcase or purse. Depending on the size of your pockets, one may even fit in one of those!
When selecting one of these locks, you'll be able to choose among five color patterns, including three basic ones: baby blue with black, orange with black, and black and white. Locks with these three patterns feature basic yet fun pictures of shapes and animals. Locks in the other two color patterns are decorated with funny emojis, and you'll have a choice between yellow with red and white with red. Regardless of the color pattern you choose, all of the locks and their pictures-as-numbers will function in the same way.
These particular locks are very durable all over, so no one will be able to come along and smash your lock in order to access the things behind it. The lock will still look attractive after weeks or months, even if you choose to use it outdoors, as the material used to create each one is resistant to rust. Plus, the steel shackle attached to each lock is so strong that if someone were to try and cut it with a knife, they probably wouldn't be successful.
Aside from finding the combinations hard to remember, kids might find numbered combination locks just plain boring. However, they may be more entertained by these ones that have pictures. At any time of the year, even if they don't use a combination lock at school, an Image Lock will make a good gift to give almost any school-aged child. Those children who don't use locks at school may want to use theirs to lock up a toy box or a cabinet in their room in which they keep special trinkets.
Combination locks are commonly used at school, at the gym or at work, but some people may not realize that a combination lock can be a useful thing to add to luggage. One of these will prevent it from being stolen if you're traveling by bus, plane or train, and will keep it securely locked up a hotel if you're worried about staff rooting through your things. If you use an Image Lock on your luggage instead of a numbered one or a padlock, you'll only have to remember funny pictures instead of numbers or where you put a key.
No matter which Image Lock you choose, you'll receive a gray, black and blue keychain with it. You can use the keychain to carry keys, of course, but you may also want to attach your lock to it when you're not using it to lock up something. If you attach the keychain to your backpack, you won't need to be concerned that a potential thief will open your lock from behind since the lock is so durable and secure. Someone's that's never heard of picture combination locks might not even know how to begin guessing the combination.
If you want to change your picture combination so that it includes pictures that are more funny or interesting to you, you won't be able to do that. You'll have to stick with the one that each lock has come with or get a different lock.
Most workplaces and gyms are fine with adults using any type of lock, as long as it works, but some high schools and elementary schools specify the type of lock students should use. Some may even specify the brand. At those schools, a lock with pictures might not be permitted, so a child who has one will have to find somewhere else to use it and get a second lock for school.
Many people choose to use padlocks with keys outdoors, in order to lock up sheds, gates and such, but these can take a while to open since you'll need to find and use a key. Once you have one or more Image Locks, however, you won't have to take the time to dig around in a drawer or cabinet and then your pocket for the right key. If you use these picture locks to secure outdoor areas, you'll be able to quickly walk up to each one and unlock it with just your hands.
If you were to buy cheaper locks made of plastic or other less durable materials, people might break into them quickly, and then you'd have to replace them all. Fortunately, each Image Lock you have may last you for years without breaking or being broken into, due to the steel and anti-shim technology included in each one. Consequently, less (if any) replacements will ever be needed.
