Keep a tight lid on odors with the LitterLocker Design Plus, a pail with AIR-SEAL technology that helps stop any smells from your cat’s waste from bothering you at home. It uses cartridge refills for bags and includes one refill along with a scoop and scoop holder.
The LitterLocker is designed to sit adjacent to your cat’s litter tray, and works as a fully-enclosed pail. It essentially has two lids – the main top that you open, and a spring-loaded internal lid that keeps everything trapped inside.
It’s a really simple product to use, and it’s almost fully assembled when it arrives too. There’s no complicated setup, and it’s up to you whether you decide to use one of the optional design covers – although it looks fine if you leave it just as a plain white pail too.
You open the LitterLocker, scoop in the waste, and then once the top is closed you pull back on the spring-loaded shelf to release the litter into the lower bag, where it’s sealed away. That way, you’re not constantly letting the bacteria from old waste seep out every time you open the top.
The refill cartridges contain essentially one long continuous bag, designed to last for up to 2 months for a single cat, depending on how often they go toilet. All you do is knot the bottom of the bag, and then when it’s full use the handy cutting point to cut that bag off, and re-knot the remaining bag ready to continue. The bags are multi-layered to help keep those odors trapped too.
The LitterLocker is similar to the Litter Genie which is more widely available in the US, but it has a couple of advantages. One of the best is the completely removable lid, which is much easier to clean and also makes it easier to swap out the cartridges. Overall, it’s a really effective product that is a great partner for your cat’s litter box.
