Dual Combi/Key Lock
Dual Combi/Key Lock

Special to The Miami Herald

Have you ever forgotten the code to one of those little combination locks? Or maybe one of the numbers mysteriously shifted, and you either couldn’t get the lock to lock, or you couldn’t get it to open — a real hassle when you have to bust or saw the lock open to free your bag’s contents. Finally, back-up for what fails you. The Dual Combi/Key Lock opens and locks via a 3-digit combination mechanism on the bottom or a key hole on the front (two keys included). Either method can override the other one. Then you can reconfigure the lock so it can serve another day instead of getting trashed. Sturdily constructed of zinc alloy, steel and plastic, the lock comes in a range of bright colors. And it’s TSA-approved, so now everyone entitled to access is good to go.

Dual Combi/Key Lock is $12.95. Info at
