- On the pants belt loop (mostly for men)
Men usually carry their wallets in their pockets. BulKey Code Wallet™ is pocket-sized and can easily be placed in your pants. The security steel cord will allow you to tie it to the belt loop of your pants (see photo) and thus ensure that no pickpocket will be able to steal it from you unnoticed. The security steel cord is long enough for you to use the wallet normally without the need to disconnect it.
How: Using the security cord, BulKey Code Wallet™ can be attached to any of the trouser belt loops.
- The bag handle (mostly for women)
Women usually carry their wallet in their handbag, so unfortunately they are more likely to be stolen from. That is why women are the main victims of pickpockets. BulKey Code Wallet™ saves you the unpleasant feeling of finding out you’ve been robbed and more importantly – it will give you peace of mind that there’s no way someone can sneak into your bag and take your wallet. Even if the pickpocket uses a tool (like a utility knife) to cut the bag, he still has no way to take BulKey Code Wallet™ because the security steel cord cannot be cut with a knife.
Another benefit from using the cord will be the ease of finding the BulKey Code Wallet™ in your handbag (we all know there’s a lot of stuff ). When you open your bag you just pull the wallet out by the cord. In addition, the cord is of such length that it allows you to normally use the BulKey Code Wallet™ without detaching it from the security cord.

How: Most handbags have handles. The security steel cord can easily be tied to them . If you don’t want the security cord to be visible on the handle, you can hang it on one of the interior zippers. YES, the cord is designed to go through the holes in a medium zipper. Another way is to attach the cord to a loop on the bag or if there is nothing else suitable, you can use a safety pin to attach to the lining of the bag and attach the security cord to it. Either way, every time anyone tries to take your wallet, you’ll feel a pull, which will prevent pickpockets from stealing it unnoticed.
- The backpack handle
Most often when we travel we carry our valuables in a backpack because it’s more convenient. But the truth is that it’s easiest to steal from a backpack because it’s on your back and you won’t even feel someone open it. Similar to attaching to a handbag, you can attach the cord to a backpack handle, zipper, shoulder strap, or safety pin to the inner fabric.
So, you save yourself all the worries of “is the wallet still with me?” and you can fully enjoy the rest and the nice views.
Even if pickpockets use a tool (like a utility knife) to cut your backpack, they still can’t take your wallet because the security cord can’t be cut with a knife. An additional convenience of using the cord will be the easy finding of the BulKey Code Wallet™. In addition, the cord is of such length that it allows you to safely use the BulKey Code Wallet™ without detaching it from the security cord.

Apart from the classic cases we explained above, BulKey Code Wallet™ Security Steel Cord can also be used in more atypical but very applicable situations.
- To tie up all your bag at the beach or pool -
Beach or pool thefts are common. You leave your luggage unattended and go to bathe in the water. When you return, you find that your entire backpack/bag is gone. And nobody saw anything. It is rare for thieves to rummage through it and pick out what to steal. Usually, they casually grab the whole bag/backpack and walk away with it. That way they don’t make any impression on others.
In these cases, you can use the security steel cord to secure not only the wallet but also your beach bag along with it. You can tie them to an umbrella, to a sun lounger, or to another large object. So, when someone tries to grab the bag unnoticed and walk away with it, they won’t succeed because it will be securely tied to the object.
How: You thread the steel the cord around the object (umbrella, leg of a deck chair) and through the zippers or handles of the bag, the backpack. Then you clip it to the wallet and tuck it into the bag as well. Thus, your belongings will be securely locked and you will be able to enjoy the water in peace without constantly looking at your luggage
- Tie up all your luggage in hostels, lodges and other shared areas
In a similar way, you can lose belongings in a Hostel, lodge or other shared areas. To protect yourself, you can reattach both your wallet and backpack to a larger object such as a bed. Thus, thieves will not be able to steal the entire backpack, and the chance of rummaging inside is small because they would attract a lot of attention. However, if you want to protect yourself as much as possible, you can wrap the cord several times through the zippers of the backpack and the bed and thus shorten it so that the thief cannot fully unzip it.
How: You thread the steel cord not only around the object (e.g., a bed) but also through the zippers or handles of the bag/backpack. (For added security, you can wrap the string a few times to shorten it and make it harder to open the zippers) Then you clip it to the wallet and tuck it into the bag as well. Thus, your belongings will be securely locked and you will be able to enjoy your trip in peace without worrying about your luggage.
If you want to fasten the zippers so they don’t open at all, you’ll need to leave the purse outside the backpack. In these cases, you can store it in the suede pouch so it doesn’t attract attention. (Each BulKey Code Wallet™ comes complete with a black velvet bag)
