How to pair the CarLock Tag with your iPhone

The Carlock Tag is a small Bluetooth device that connects directly to the CarLock app on your iPhone and automates the unlocking and locking of your car’s location. Pairing the CarLock Tag with the CarLock app on your phone is very easy. This step-by-step guide will help you set up the Tag in no time.

Before using the CarLock Tag, you need to have your CarLock account activated and the CarLock device installed in your car. If you don’t know how to do that, just follow the instructions in the user’s installation guide you received with your CarLock device. If you have any questions about the activation, please contact us at

You can buy the CarLock Tag on Amazon.

Setting up the CarLock Tag

Remove the CarLock Tag and the adhesive sticker from the packaging and follow these steps:

1. Pull out the plastic tab from the CarLock Tag, to connect the battery. The tab is quite hard to pull out but don’t worry, just hold it firmly in your hand and slowly pull out the tab.

3. Tap on the “Manage” button and enable the CarLock Tag functionality by tapping on the switch. The CarLock app will start searching for available tag(s). Your new Tag will appear under the “IN RANGE” list of tags as for example “123-124”. The name of the tag will match the numbers on the backside of the Tag.

Now you just need to place the CarLock Tag in your car. We suggest you place the Tag on the driver’s side of the car, to ensure the optimal range of the Tag when you are approaching the car. When your phone registers the Tag, the CarLock app will perform the appropriate action.
