Weight Scale and Measuring Tape

Contest: Win 1 of 5 Weight Scale + Measuring Tape

I try to give away truly useful stuff, but from a technology perspective. This time around, I turn my attention to travellers. If you fly a lot, you know how difficult it can be to comply with baggage rules and size limitations. Different airlines have different rules and even local airports can handle bag sizes and dimensions in ways you might not expect. For this contest, I’m going to give away a small travel pack that includes a portable luggage scale and a measuring tape.

This is especially true with carry-on luggage. With sizes different for essentially every airline, you need to be ready before getting to an airport. It’s so much easier to look up restrictions online and adjust your bag safely from the hotel. Then, you’ll never be one of those people stuck in line wondering how heavy your bag is, or trapped at a gate while a guard who’s worked 36 hours straight forces you to empty out your luggage.

What you’ll get in this small prize pack:

A Portable Digital Weight Scale (max weight of 110 pounds) (buy one)
A small 10ft (3 metres) Magnetic Tape Measure (buy one)

Take these tools on your travels, and you’ll never walk into an airport wondering how big or heavy your luggage is! In most cases, these small tools can be tucked away in a pocket compartment of your bag; ready to save you from embarrassment.

Here’s how to win this prize pack:

1. Follow the @cwl_cc Twitter account AND Like the CWL Facebook page (if you haven’t yet done so).

2. Retweet this tweet (or share this post):

3. Tweet (or post on Facebook) a picture of yourself in your favourite travel spot. The more creative you are, the better. Use the hashtag #CWLCONTEST so we can see it.

We’ll choose the most creative and interesting posts, so be different! Try something new.

The contest entry period ends at 11:59pm on July 17th, 2015. Our full rules are available on the contest rules page. For any other enquiries please see the contact us page. After the contest concludes, we’ll provide more details on how the contest went. Good luck!
