No experience on the litter locker, but I am using a diaper champ for a pink furless child. I choose it because a couple of my girlfriends had diaper genies and were only frustrated with them, plus the added cost of the special bags, which don't contain the smell much.

I wouldn't dream of using either for litter. The deep well you drop your smellies in works with a neatly rolled and taped diaper but almost anything else I've dropped in it has gotten stuck in the fine gap the 'plug' rides in to contain the smell. (not that it actually contains the smell) And I've got a mold growing in there that eats lysol spray for lunch. Seriously. Took it outside for bleach, water and sunshine, water got trapped in the top portion and drained for a couple days. Would not want it on carpet.

I consider it more of a physical barrier to keep the pink thing from playing in her poo. Its emptied every other day if not every day.

Plain old double bagging the litter scoopings works better. When I scoop, I tie off the first bag, then cover the entire wastebasket opening with the second and flip. Any gap in the tied off top in the first bag is closed off in the bottom of the second bag so the risk of dribbling dirtly litter is gone, and there is no hole to let the stench out.

I'd be worried the litter locker was a cute idea more practical for lightening your wallet then keeping your place smelling fresh.
