We all have that time when we are at the beach and want to go swimming. But what usually happens? Someone, usually the ‘worrier’, stays behind to keep an eye on the valuables. After all, who leaves wallets and phones in a bag unattended on a beach? Well, now you can with the FlexSafe from Aquavault.
This handy little gadget allows you to lock small but expensive items like car keys, phones, wallets, Amazon Kindle and even jewellery inside and then securely lock it to a fixed object. The nice people in Aqua Vault sent me one to use on holidays, but when you look at the website it has plenty more uses. My husband took a shine to it too and now uses it when cycling to hold his keys, wallet and phone! When I think back to the days when my kids were in buggies – it would have been ideal. The flexsafe is pretty tough and its made of some kind of ‘slash’ proof material so when you have it locked down, opportunistic thieves would have a hard time cutting it loose. They would also look pretty conspicuous running down the beach with my sun lounger….
The flexsafe fits beach loungers and pool chairs, boat rails when fishing, golf carts when on the course and the handles of strollers and buggies. The guys who invented it are Rob, Jonathan, and Avin appeared on Shark Tank in September 2016. Shark Tank is the US equivalent to our Dragons Den, where businesses pitch for investment to wealthy entrepreneurs. The one of the sharks (or dragons!) was so impressed with the product he invested in Aquavault and the company has gone from strength to strength.
OK now for the ‘science‘ bit!
- Reinforced binding for added durability
- It’s water resistant
- Its got a zipper-reinforced cargo pouch
- 3-digit combination lock that you can set in seconds
- Mesh pockets for bottled water or sun creams
Anyway, I think the flexsafe is pretty cool and I love mine. If you want to get one, you can order them online from the Aquavault website for $39.95 and they ship to Ireland too!
