  • Introduction

    A lot of people I know travel a lot. Some travel for work, others for leisure, while others do a bit of both. While there’s little gadgets can do to make travel a pleasurable experience for those folks who don’t enjoy it, the addition of a few gadgets can make time on the move more agreeable.

  • SearchAlert Heavy-Duty TSA-approved Padlock

    A lot of companies make TSA approved locks – you know, the small padlocks that you can use to lock up bags and cases you check at airports that TSA officials can open with their own key so they don’t have to destroy the lock – but this SearchAlert padlock has a nifty trick up its sleeve.

    The SearchAlert padlock features a little indicator that changes from green to red if the padlock has been “officially opened.” Not only that, but only you can reset the indicator – the TSA cannot (at least there is no easy, official way to do this) – giving you the chance to check to see if anything has been removed, added, or tampered with.

    Price: $12.
