How to secure or lock a duffbag

I have been meaning to post this for sometime as it is a question that comes up from time to time: “Can you lock a duffbag?”

The answer is… Yes you can.

When I designed the duffbag I wanted to make it as simple as possible, no zips, Velcro or complicated clasps just a clean, simple design that does exactly what it is intended to do. I did think about a more elaborate device that could be locked but figured let’s keep it simple and if you do want to lock it you can just use a simple padlock, here is how you do it:

The padlock I have used is very much over the top but you get the idea, you can use something lighter that is designed for luggage, I just had this one lying around.

Simply start threading the padlock through the eyelets, alternating as you go. You should be able to thread all the eyelets onto the straight part of the padlock arm and then simply lock it as per the pictures below.

Thread the padlock through the first loop. It is easiest if you start with the eyelet opposite the strap.

Continue onto the 2nd loop

Continue on round the bag, the eyelets should all be lined up in a “straight” line

With the last eyelet on the padlock just snap it locked

There you have it, bag locked up just using a simple padlock. Not the most elegant solution but by far the most simple.
