Most sex toys have an excellent feature called a travel lock. This feature is typically on vibrating, rechargeable sex toys, and keeps the sex toy from being turned on or off by accident. It is helpful, especially when traveling so that you do not have an embarrassing situation such as a vibrating sex toy going off in your suitcase. Hence the name 'travel lock' was given to this sex toy feature.

Travel locks also help keep a vibrator from being turned off by accident. Thus, if you accidentally hit the power button while using it, the vibrator will keep running and keep your sexual flow going.

How To Turn On A Sex Toy With A Travel Lock

The way you typically turn off a travel lock is by pressing the power button and holding it down for 3-6 seconds, depending on the brand and model of vibrator you have. The vibrator will then turn on and allow you to adjust the settings.

How To Turn Off A Sex Toy With A Travel Lock

To turn off a travel lock, you simply do the same thing by holding the power button down for 3-6 seconds. The vibrator will then power down.

Some vibrators have alternative ways of turning on and off a travel lock, so make sure you always defer to the instructions of the specific sex toy you have purchased.

Trouble Shooting Sex Toys With Travel Locks

On occasion, you may find that a sex toy comes with instructions and says to hold the power button down for 2-3 seconds. Some customers have reported that it takes a bit longer (as long as 6 seconds) to disengage a travel lock. If you are having difficulty with a sex toy not starting, try holding it down a few seconds longer than instructions say before you begin troubleshooting other potential issues.

If you have checked the travel lock feature and you find a sex toy is not turning on, make sure to check out our Rechargeable Sex Toy Guide for further help in troubleshooting what may be the issue.
