Umbrellock / Lock of Umbrella


Have you ever experienced that umbrella was stolen? There are some people out of convenience in order to steal someone’s umbrella that leads to discommode owner. It is thought that if we can lock the umbrella, so that it won’t be lost. It inspires us to design ”Umbrellock” that combine umbrella with combination lock. There is a combination lock setting on the handle, you have to unlock the lock while you need to use the umbrella. Therefore, if someone steals you umbrella, he/she can’t unlock it, it will be useless. As a result, this should reduce rates of theft.
