    I am thinking of using a little locker!!!! Changed my litter brand from Oko best to Natures gold and it does not flush well.

    Does anyone on here use one? if so, what one? do you love it?

    It says "One cassette lasts for 2 months for one cat." SO that would mean that one cassette lasts 2 weeks for 4 cats i presume?
    How long does one last for your 3?

    A cassette lasts about 4 weeks, especially now I have a scoop with bigger holes in it so the Natures Gold falls through - the one that came with the locker didnt have big enough holes.

    Hobbs when you open the lid does it smell bad? or does it have a way of stopping the odour from escaping?

    It only needs one cartridge - I think the other kind is for Litter Locker I

    Edited to say: I never notice any smells when I open the lid

    Litter Locker 2 is fab, masks the smell well can hold quite a lot of 'leavings' :p

    Although when it comes to completely emptying it out, it can be quite smelly. I use a wet wipe to give it a quick clean too

    Cartridges are at pets at home for £4.99, and when you open the lid it smells alright (keep in mind that I'm used to the smell of animals lol) :)

    No because it has two lids ;) The second, inner lid also has a child-lock. Never noticed any smell but then again my cats' poop doesn't really smell. So perhaps not the most qualified to make smell-free guarantees. :)

    Do you carry it around the house as you're scooping litter? I'm thinking it could get cumbersome with stairs involved and three litter trays spread around the house - particularly as it gets heavier!

    Out of interest... what is wrong with the kitchen bin? :S
    Or the outside bin.

    I use Asda's smart price sandwich bags to put the junk in, then just tie it up and put it in the kitchen bin. Someone else suggested getting smart price nappy sacks as you get more for your money. I since found out they come with handy tie handles making it easier.

    Our's is next to the litter tray (we only need one between 4 cats) so it's just a case of scooping it up and dumping it in. It doesn't get too heavy to pick up after a while, the bin isn't very big :) It helps if you shake out as much lit as you can from the poop scoop so it's stays lighter for longer


    For us, it's convenience. And am I right in saying that it's more environmentally friendly?

    I use Litter Locker II and I change the cartridge around once a month+ for two cats.

    I use this instead of throwing each litter scooping in the outside bin as I didn't fancy going outside to throw litter in the freezing winter. I didn't like the idea of using a separate plastic bag for each litter scoop either. Throwing into the kitchen bin is not exactly hygenic either and many people said when they did, it was causing their bin to smell.

    I don't find any smells with LL II except in the few seconds when I am throwing the bag away. It has saved me a lot of hassle and I would recommend it.

    I wouldn't go back to anything else since having the Litter Locker II - no smells and very easy to use. I didn't like putting litter in the kitchen bin even in tied up bags and wouldn't flush it for fear of getting blocked drains :eek: so the Litter Locker is very convenient. Highly recommend it :thumbup1:
