A Dutch Royal Marine living in the U.S. is schooling TikTok on survival skills.
In one popular TikTok, he broke down three major hotel room safety tips everyone should know about.
“Use your belt to go through the chain link,” Robin said. “This makes it harder to pick it or even remove the lock from the chain link.”
He looped a belt around a doorknob, then passed it through the chain link, then around the knob again to make it extra secure.
Next, he placed a glass on top of the doorknob so that if it fell off, he would know someone was trying to enter.
The final trick he called a “self-made barrier” using the “triangular method.” Robin removed the shower curtain rail and wedged it between the door and the wall next to it at a right angle. When he tried to open the door, it wouldn’t budge.
The video racked up 4.9 million views on TikTok. Women especially seemed to appreciate the tips.
“I’m a female and travel for business. This is good,” one user commented.
“Lots of women escaping domestic violence usually stay in hotels that’s why this is important,” another said.
“I’ve had hotel staff try to come into my room in the middle of the night to harm me. A truly terrifying experience. Thank you for making this video,” a woman wrote.
