EASY LOCK / Household/Tableware


Umbrella being stolen or taken accidentally by others in public places is the most troubling thing on rainy days. EASY LOCK is exactly designed to address this problem. There is an extra coded lock on the umbrella handle, and thus users can release the bottom cap of the umbrella handle, pull out the wire rope, wind it on a fence or pillar, and then buckle the bottom cap lightly. The umbrella will be firmly locked, which can be unlocked instantly by matching the correct code. It is convenient and practical, which effectively solves the umbrella lost problem.
