There’s nothing worse than looking forward to a serving of Nutella on warm toast for breakfast – only to find that someone has cleaned out the jar.
But German inventor Daniel Schobloch has come up with a brilliantly simple solution to the pilfering problem – by designing an acrylic lock to keep jars of the chocolate and hazelnut spread safe from sticky fingers.
不過一位名叫丹尼爾·舍布洛赫爾（ Daniel Schobloch）的德國發明家想出了個好點子，輕輕鬆鬆就解決了偷吃的問題。他設計了一款丙烯酸鎖頭，鎖住裝榛子巧克力醬的罐子，別人就沒法偷吃了。
The canny gadget, which started life as a joke invention, is currently on sale for €9.99 on eBay Germany.
The simple lock is so popular that 1,000 units have been sold so far.
The acrylic lock means that no one can open the jar without a key, which will stop late night snackers and early morning pilferers in their tracks.
Daniel, who works at Borkenkarger Furniture and Fittings, told Berlin-based The Local that his invention started life as a joke.
丹尼爾在博肯卡格爾家居公司（Borkenkarger Furniture and Fittings）上班。他在接受柏林《The Local》採訪時表示，當初發明這款鎖，就是為了圖個樂子。
