Frequently Asked Questions...

What if I need to access my phone?

Hold down the main button for around 10 seconds to use an emergency unlock. This can only be done twice per device, so use it wisely.

Does my phone fit?

The internal dimensions of the box are around 17.2cm x 8.5cm x 1.6cm. This is enough space for almost all uncased phones, e.g. iPhone 14 Pro Max. However, you may have to remove your case for your phone to fit. We recommend you measure your phone before ordering to ensure it is compatible.

Why not just put my phone down instead?

With habit forming behaviours, willpower alone usually isn't enough. Pre-commitment has been proven as a much more effective strategy for self-control. By restricting temptation, the device prevents the failures of willpower.

 

Ever tried to use your phone less? It's much harder than it seems. But we made it easy. Simply put your phone in a box, and watch your screen time shrink.

What if it breaks with my phone inside?

This is extremely unlikely but if it happens, it is possible to force open the lid with a knife or any tool, irreversibly damaging the box. Email us and we will replace the device as soon as possible.

Why not just use an app?

We know from experience, they are way too easy to get around, making them ineffective at creating any real impact on your phone usage. The Lockbox is a physical solution that is guaranteed to change the way you use your phone, once and for all.

What's the best way to use the device?

The Lockbox is a super versatile & convenient productivity tool - you could choose to detox from your phone for 48 hours, for 90 minute focus periods, or to chill before you go to bed, it's all up to you - The Lockbox is designed to be useful no matter your unique lifestyle or phone needs.

What if I'm not completely satisfied with my purchase?

We believe that you will not regret your purchase, however, if for whatever reason you aren't 100% happy with your order, contact us for a refund or replacement, and we will get back to you ASAP - make sure you keep the product & packaging in it's original condition.

Where is The Virtus Project based?

We're located in Manchester, UK.

Are you environmentally friendly?

We made sure to be environmentally conscious - all of our packaging is recyclable and/or reusable.
