Student Accommodation

So you’ve just moved into shared student accommodation, but your landlord won’t allow you to fix a permanent lock on the door. We have the solution. The Howsarlock is designed to fit most internal doors worldwide. Made of reinforced nylon the lock simply fits between the frame and the door on the inside of the room. A handout to guests staying in student rooms during student vacations.

With no set up,  just remove the packaging and away you go. Perfect if you need some privacy now and again!

I bought this lock to use in my university house. I share with 4 other people and unfortunately, the landlord does not allow us to have permanent locks on our doors so I bought this. It takes a little practice to use; the first time I used it took me about 20 seconds however I can now very easily do it in a couple of seconds. It is a little pricey for a couple pieces of plastic however it is very well made.

This is so good! I'm a uni student and have no lock on my door and I was concerned about safety. It is very easy to use. I combine this with putting some wedges under my door and there is no way someone would be able to get in!

I wasn't sure exactly how this was going to work on my student bedroom door. But it's perfect. A bit fiddly at times to put in place - not easy to put up in a hurry, but straightforward to fit and works like a charm to stop people barging into your space.

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.

Team Geared Up"I like the fact that its all plastic. You can carry it through airport security fine."

The Howsarlock is an ingenious device made out of reinforced nylon. Neat"

Red Ferret Journal

"The lock is a simple idea... 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 again"
