I've tested and my bluetooth 'lapa' key finder device cannot communicate, when in this new 'Defender' bag..... it did in the old one

Now are radio frequencies/bluetooth frequences blocked really needed? am not sure... but the new defender bags are better made than the old ones, which tbh where used every day so were getting tatty, and these newer ones are cheap so grabbed a couple.

Contact me if you need a Wedding Photographer.

Get them protected with a Ghost.... Ain't going nowhere even with the keys forget cloning and relay theft... I don't know when these people will get any sense... Its sad that they have to take these steps but its a reality of life unfortunately.
