Spell it out, lock it up

Have you ever had trouble remembering the combination to your combination lock? Do you have a child who would lose his head if it wasn’t attached, and therefore you gravely doubt his ability to remember how to unlock his bike once he’s mastered remembering to lock it up in the first place?

If you answered “yes” to either of the preceding questions, you need a Wordlock. Five dials, 100,00 combination possibilities. Pick your word, set it as your combo, and never forget how to open your own lock ever again.

I have a pretty red Wordlock padlock to give away this weekend. Will you be the one to win it? Just go read the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, September 6th, 2009 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and 5-letter credo. No, I don’t really know how that would work, either.

Ready? Go!


  1. #1 should be a winner!

  2. What a cool idea!

  3. My word is “hopey.” As in “I’m hopey that I will win the wordlock.”

    Thanks, Mir!

  4. Sounds Cool!

  5. I would love to win this.

  6. I could have used one of those in days past, but I know a kiddo who needs one now. 🙂

  7. We have one of these (another brand, but same deal) on our front gate. I like feeling confident that Bella will remember the combo should she need it.

  8. Cool prize

  9. I’m hoping to be L-U-C-K-Y and win this for my son 🙂

  10. ADD daughter at college — this would be wonderful.

  24. I’m one of those who never could remember a combination. This would be perfect!

  25. sounds like a great idea

  39. I need one of these for my husband, too.

  40. Sounds great! Thanks for the chance to win!

  41. Great concept! The hard part will be choosing a word that no one can guess, but I can still remember.

  42. Wow that sounds perfect for a terribly forgetful mother like me! 🙂

  44. My son would LOVE this!

  45. I’ve never heard of this but hope I get a chance to try it!

  68. Nifty!

  69. Cool!

  70. Great idea! Would love to win one!

  71. I’m always saying “Use your words” to the kids when they use their fists instead. Now we really can use our words to lock something up… maybe the bad behavior. hehehehe

  79. How cool! Thanks for another nifty giveaway!

  80. My son could use this!

  81. cool!

  82. Lucky number 82?!

  83. We lock the shed in the back yard so that they kids don’t cut themselves on yard tools or decide to have a gasoline cocktail when I glance over to tell the neighbor’s dog that we are not going to try and do bad things to “their” house. If I had to mow the lawn right now, I’d have to break the lock. I need this.

  84. We have a couple of these locks – they’re great. Especially for someone like me who is more of a word person as opposed to a number person. MKW

  85. I would love to win something it would brighten my day

  86. sounds very cool!

  87. Perhaps this is my magic number.

  88. This would be awesome! I have to lock my bike up downstairs, I love in on the third floor of an apartment building.

  89. This would be so cool!

  90. This lock just looks like so much fun. Oopsy, that would be my word.

  91. Consider this my E-N-T-R-Y

  101. I gave a friend of mine one of these for her birthday (we went to the gym together and needed locks) and she made her code b-i-t-c-h. Awesome.

  102. Well, a word just seems way too obvious. Yay for innovation!

  103. How cool is that?!

  112. Looks awesome. Please pick me. 🙂

  113. This would be so cool! Thanks Mir!

  114. Pick me, please!

  115. Very cool idea!

  116. Awesome!!

  117. I need this lock.. some days its hard to remember to put the milk in the fridge and not in the cabinet with the cereal boxes!! Now thats bad

  118. Sounds great!

  119. 🙂

  120. bike thefts are on the rise in our neighborhood unfortunately – count me in!

  121. My 10 year old needs this! My 5-letter credo would be “tired” as in… I’m so tired of her forgetting her combination every single day of my life!!

  122. I considered purchasing one of these for my newly released (been in storage for a variety of reasons) and newly tuned-up bike, but waited on getting it so far. I cannot, for the life of me, remember numbers very well (still don’t know my “new” driver’s license number that I’ve had for three years. I think I’m in denial since I had my old one, from my previous state, memorized and don’t want to make the effort again.) Words? Heck, I can remember words all day long, even ones that make no sense. This would be awesome to have!


  123. I have to call my husband to get the combination to our shed EVERY time I need in the building. I am hopeless.

  124. The kid brother needs this. Badly.

  125. would love this!! thanks!!

  126. cool!!

  127. I need one for the gym because I can never remember my combo. It is so bad that I keep a tiny sticker on the back.

  128. looks cool

  129. What a good idea! I’m tired of using birthdates, and they’re not too secure, either.

  130. Oh, there are so many things I could use this for…:)

  131. I am actually getting in on one of the weekend giveaways! Woohoo!

  132. Cool idea . . .

  133. “D-I-R-T-Y”

  134. My son needs this!

  135. Wordlock me!!

  136. DH is a nuclear physicist…needless to say remembering a simple combination is, ironically, not his forte. This would be great!

  137. This is awesomely perfect! I think I need to win this one. ha ha

  138. Yes, please!

  139. I would love to win because it’s not my child with the memory issues (although she has them too) – sadly it’s me!! I just like to think there is so much stuff in my brain, there isn’t room for it all 🙂 !

  140. That is very cool. I can remember standing and staring at my high school lock trying to will the numbers into my head.

  141. This would be great for my niece!

  142. I would love this for my son.

  143. I’d love to win one! Anyone else seen the commercial for these? The announcer says something like “you could have picked any one of zillions of words, but your mind went right to *poop*” Hilarious!

  144. Thanks.

  145. Thanks Mir!

  146. oh, that would be great for my kids’ bike lock!

    they really would forget their heads if they weren’t attached!

  147. Finally!! I can never remember a number combo!!=)

  160. Sounds great. Throw my name in the hat, please.
