If your kids have their own phone, it’s probably pretty difficult to pry it away from them. Even though we all use our phones for a major part of the day, there are times when you want to have mobile-free time at home. The only way to do that is to take all of the cell phones out of the picture, but how do you make sure no one is cheating and hiding it in their pocket?
The Cell Lock-Up will put your phones in a literal jail for however long you want. Trying to open the cell will result in an alarm sounding. It only costs $20, and will let you know when your time away from your precious device is up with phrases like, “YOU ARE NOW FREE TO PHONE!” “IT’S TIME TO REJOIN DIGITAL SOCIETY!” and “JUSTICE IS SERVED…POWER UP!” It only takes 2 AA batteries to function, and has “standing” space as well as bunk space for up to four phones. This might make your kids hate you a little bit, but if you really want family time without texting, web-browsing, or gaming, then this may be the lengths you need to go to.
