Next time you travel, don’t fumble around with cumbersome luggage locks. That is, unless you’re using a user friendly, uber safe smart travel lock.

This lock is Bluetooth-enabled and uses high-tech security measures to keep your luggage safe. You control it entirely from your phone, so the safety of your stuff is truly in your hands. It’s about the same size as old-school combination locks but comes with way more features.

First of all, you can finally stop worrying about airlines losing your bags. With its crowdsourced GPS network, you can actually see your luggage’s last location. Never lose track of your stuff whether you’re in Toronto or Timbuktu.

Don’t stress over thieves trying to swipe your stuff either. You can set distance controls through the app or by using a built-in buzzer on the lock itself. If someone swipes your luggage, set off the alarm and they won’t get too far.

Here’s how it works: you download the free companion app to set up your device. Your lock and your phone will become besties. When you need to get into your bag, the AirBolt will talk to your phone through the app to unlock it with a single push of a button (when you’re in range).

Best of all, it’s fully TSA compliant, too, in case you were wondering. The app will let you know if and when they unlock it throughout your journey.

Ditch that combination lock for good and get this smart travel lock, available on the Daily Dot Store for $54.99 (regularly $79).
