The Howsar Lock was designed with the traveller in mind. This device is a must need travel accessory. It’s an essential security device for travellers and backpackers. Maybe you’re staying in a hostel or hotel without looks on the doors. This durable, small and lightweight device will give you peace of mind whilst you sleep.

It works, takes seconds to lock the door and it's amazingly lightweight so ideal to travel with. Nice to feel safe at night when sleeping, especially in strange places where there is no lock on the door (Airbnb) or as an extra one.Katyon - Amazon User
You may find yourself in a part of the world where locks are a luxury. This device is simple and effective. I have given these as presents to younger and older members of the family set out on their 'gap year adventures' - gets them security aware - no bad thing.Tim Marsh
The lock is a simple idea – two pieces of plastic form a tight wedge into where the door connects to the wall to keep unwanted intruders out of the room. The paranoid traveller will never again lose sleep worrying about housekeeping. And no one will need to use a propped chair to lock an unlockable door againRoad Junky
Although not intended to replace permanent locks, the Howsarlock provides an additional basic barrier and deterrent protection against intruders.
Introducing a portable and universal door lock with a difference – a simple lock for use by all – small enough to carry in a pocket, lightweight and inexpensive.
The Howsar Lock offers additional overnight security on doors when you’re travelling. Can be installed to most internal doors worldwide.
If I was a backpacker, especially female, and doing a lot of hostels I'd invest £4.99 in a 'Howsar Lock' ...Very useful for bedrooms and toilet doors.
