Time-Image Lock / Lock

Time-Image Lock
Time-Image Lock

People often use more than one dial-type locks for important objects such as baggage, bicycles and strongboxes. However, it is really a problem that makes people confused to remember the password for different locks.

Undoubtedly, time is an important element of life, so people are good at remembering it. For example, people usually set time of appointments or dates with others. Time-Image Lock takes this advantage, allowing people remember the password more easily using the image of time.

Simultaneously, fluorescent digits help people to find the lock and see the digits clearly at night.
