Master Lock sent me a sampling of its back to school product line, and I gotta say, I was so impressed! Some schools allow electronics at school, some don’t, but most children have some sort of precious item that they need to keep safe during school hours. Security products are an important back to school item that don’t appear on school-supply lists but that you definitely need. I admit, I need to pay more attention to security. I have had a laptop stolen from a car and from underneath my table at Union Station in DC! Now that we are in the Back to School mode, it’s a great time to upgrade your security.
Combination Padlocks from Master Lock now feature light-up keypads (hint, there’s a video on that link!), guest codes (guess what, your kids do share their lockers with trusted friends!), plus convenient, digital storage at the Master Lock Vault, which will also save the combo for your new lock! Sweet! Master Lock offers several different new-style combination locks, so see which one is best for you. This one – the 1500eDBX dialSpeed Digital Combination Lock – retails for $15.99.
But this newfangled thing (seriously, locks and security products are so much better than when I went to school!) is my favorite! I have definitely used the cable bike locks and laptop locks before, but the SafeSpace Mini is a cable locking safe! It locks your valuables inside AND secures them to something stationary (hint, talk with your kids that putting it around a table leg that lifts up does not equal stationary!).
Your student can keep her phone and other valuables safely locked inside, and when she can’t be there, she can lock it up so it cannot be taken. I plan on using mine for vacation travel, I think it’s brilliant! Also, what a cool back to school or graduation gift this would make with a gift card already in it! The 5900D SafeSpace™ Portable Safe is available in white, grey and pink and retails for $19.99.
Master Lock basically has every product you’d ever need for locking things up, so be sure to check them out if you have home, outdoor, or specialty security needs, but especially check out the Back to Campus lineup!
