I am going to discuss two types of doorlocks. I will explain the advantages and disadvantages of both. If you read the whole article you are not missing the tips and the buy advice. You will find the right lock that cannot be picked.
1. Removable Door Lock

Imagine if you stay in a hotel room or in an AirBNB apartment for a night. You don’t know who has the key of your room. Pretty insecure right? Carrying this type of lock solves this. It takes away the feelings of insecurity.
The idea behind the removable lock is that you can take it with you and use it on any door at any time. For installing such a lock you don’t have to use tools and even no screws. The lock grips into the current holes of the door station and keeps the door closed in a discreet way.
If you consider buying such a lock it is best to buy this lock: Addalock – Portable Door Lock ($29.95).
