Over 20 million bags are mislaid by airlines every year, one in 6 mobile phones are lost a year and Transport for London find over 500,000 valuables, but can only find 25% of owners to return the property (the rest are destroyed or auctioned). Avoid these nightmares with Homing Pin, it's the world's first truly global lost property recovery system.
Homing Pin puts the owner and finder of lost property together, so your lost property is returned faster and more easily. The set includes baggage loops, tags, keyrings and stickers that feature a unique number. Simply attach the HomingPin to your luggage and valued property wherever you travel. The numbers are activated by providing Homing Pin with your mobile phone number(s) and email address.
The finder of the property simply connects to the owner by visiting the website at homingpin.com, or if you lose your bags at an airport by using their WorldTracer system for baggage handling. When the posession is reported to Homing Pin by a finder, you will instantly receive a text and email connecting you to them to get it back quickly. Whoever finds the bag is not given any information about the owner.
It works everywhere: planes, trains, taxis, hotels, ships worldwide and is is integrated into the baggage system used in 2200 airports. The website and texts are available in over 70 languages so you can get your property from anywhere in the world. It functions all year round, so you can get your property back when you're at home, not only when you're on holiday.
The owner then contact the finder to arrange to get their lost property back. Homing Pin offers 2 ways for the owner to get their property:
Airlines are provided with information on where the bag is when it is found. Then the airport will contact you to arrange for immediate transfer. This means you don't have to wait for them to find your bags, then have the annoying process of waiting to hear when you can get your luggage back. Homing Pin can save you up to 6 days search by the airline and can save you from a disaster of a holiday.
When your property is found elsewhere, Homing Pin (at a reasonable price) can offer means of getting your property back from anywhere in the world. This includes luggage when the owner has returned home from an international location.
The Homing Pin Double Pack offers protection for any 30 items and each set includes a year's cover. A low annual subscription applies after a year. For Homing Pins to work, the company must share your data with various organisations e.g. airports, airlines companies related to travel and it's a condition of purchase that you agree for your data to be shared (they cannot use data for marketing purposes without your permission). - A.D.

I think these are a marvellous little security addition we should all use. The tags are easy to affix and the HomingPin web page to register your tags along with a brief description is simplicity itself. Of course the only downside to any product like this is human honesty. But I'm impressed and Zavvi price for this item cant be beat - well done!
Didn't fall off the cases, also had one left that went round my 4 year old Daughters wrist for the plane trip just in case we got separated.
Hopefully it is one of those things you never have to use but the system enables repatriation of property much more quickly than normal channels. Would recommend to anyone who travels regularly.
