Litter Locker Plus















We all love our cats and do anything for them, that includes picking up their little cat gifts and making daily treks out to the garbage. What a hassle...but all that for our adorable boss of fluff? No problem. But if you were offered an alternative would you take it? Most of us...yes. Well I was once like the rest of you, cleaning out the cat box of the wee clumps and cat gifts and tossing them into a bag and hauling them out the door across the parking lot and into that giant blue garbage. Well....I am that person no more. I have freed myself of those shackles for a measly $20 + shipping! I introduce you my adoring crowd of cat fanciers to the litter locker plus!

Now lets go over the features of the litter locker, I do admit the litter locker is fairly large, it's small enough to fit on top of my cat box but not small enough to just hide behind it and still have the space I need (I have small spaces) So in my small space things go up. So I have my cat box, my tub of litter and then my litter locker on top, it all sits together very stable!

So you can see the size of the litter locker in comparison to a 28lb tub of litter. Like I said it's fairly large but there is a smaller model out that just is not available in the US yet, it looks to be tall and slim, but that does not make this locker useless in fact it's my favorite cat thing in the bathroom. So to make the litter locker useful it comes with these blue bags inside of a ring, you insert the ring into your litter locker and pull the bags (it's a never ending bag) on down and through the hole in the middle and tie yourself off a knot. That blue handle you see on both sides of the litter locker go through the middle of the locker and here you will find and adorable cat face, what you want to do is put your knot on the side of the cat face so that it stays put, shut your locker and give it one good turn with the handle on the side. Now your blue bag should be securely in place for your litter locker use, now those blue bags are actually really neat, they are layered 7 times and have an odor barrier, so what you put in the locker....well the smell stays in the section of the bag inside the locker. In the picture on the left you can see how the bag wraps around the "arm" on the handles inside of your litter locker unit. So after the initial setup use of the litter locker is pretty simple! You simply open the top take the scooper out of the back of the unit, scoop your cat box, drop the contents into the litter locker, shut the top and turn the handle to lock away the odors. The bags say they should last about a month, I used to use my litter locker for both wee clay clumps and cat gifts and have had it for well over a month, now I only use it for the cat gifts because of my change in litter. One thing you do need to watch out for when using the litter locker for both wee clumps and cat gifts is that your litter locker can become full before all the bag you have inserted into the unit is used up. When your litter locker becomes hard to turn your going to want to go ahead and empty it. So what I do is I just open up my locker and have a pair of scissors ready. I give myself plenty of slack so as not to make a mess and I cut the bag and tie up the top and toss it out. Then pull some more slack of my remaining bag tie up the end and start all over again. So now a days I make my trip to the big garbage outside maybe once a month when I was putting the wee clumps in but now that it's only cat gifts I'm betting it will be less than that! The litter locker also comes with a scooper and a compartment that is removable for easy washing to keep your scooper in so that everything stays nice looking and clean! The following pictures are of the mouth of the litter locker and scooper/compartment. I really hope you go out and get one of these for your precious babies, they are very convenient especially if your very busy or are living in an apartment/condo type community. Again Tygana and I give the litter locker plus 6 claws up!


***insert: A commenter Freya's Staff brought to my attention that I did not address the plastic ring bag refills. Yes, the refills do cost a pretty penny in any physical store I have seen them in. I have seen them as cheap as $6 for a single refill. When you read the descriptions of these bags it says they last about a month and as I mentioned in my review I have had my initial bag well over a month. I didn't realize exactly how long. I have had my litter locker since early July and am still on my initial bag, so over 3 months use I have gotten out of one bag. But the life of your bags does depend on your use, I'm sure now that I use my litter locker for cat gifts only it will last a very good amount of time.

HI! Saw you mentioned on the Cat Blogosphere, so I popped over to say Hi...

I had a look at the litter locker, and thought the regular buying of the plastic bag ring was too expensive so I couldn't afford it.

Yeah, the refills are somethign to think about and I did forget to cover them in my review. Sorry about that. But on-line you can get the refills much cheaper around $6 a refill, and at the rate mine gets used especially now that its only for cat chocolate the bag really lasts. Like I said I did start out using it for the clay pee clumps and chocolate and now only use it for chocolate and it's been well over a month. In fact I will find out exactly when I got it to let you know how long I have gotten use out of it! ^_^

The litter locker is very interesting...with 6 cats we could use one around here.

Laura said...

This is amazing! I'm definatly going to pick one up! I have a tiny apartment and Ottawa winters are pretty bad so it can be really daunting to try and face -30 degree weather just to toss out some poo :S

At only $6 for about 3 months use, this sounds like the perfect thing for me!

I'm really enjoying your blog!
