#Sponsored #MasterBacktoSchool with Master Lock!

Master Lock has got some innovative and fun products to help keep your back-to-school items safe! 

#MasterBacktoSchool

Everyone seems to be talking about back to school now, and I can see why...it's always best to prepare ahead of time, for some people there are only two weeks of summer vacation left (we have four), and time does go by very quickly. And while I'd like to enjoy what's left of summer (and we will!), we too, have started to pick up things here and there for our back-to-school preparation.

 (up to four codes digitally stored, and it has a light-up keypad!)

Master Lock 1535 DWD Set-Your-Own-Combo lock on the right.

According to a survey*, more than half North American students do not use a locker to keep their items safe throughout the school day, but rather they carry their belongings with them. I am happy to say my children are not included in that statistic because our school system has lockers from K-12.

*Survey conducted by Survey Monkey in May 2014 among Americans representative of a National U.S. Census.

Sleek ergonomic design that allows for one-handed, no-look operation

That being said, they need locks for those lockers each year, in order to make the securing of their items effective. Fortunately, Master Lock has the lock (couldn't resist) on keeping school items safe.  For my teen, the 1500 eDBX dialSpeed is a digital combination lock that works wonders. This lock was created by Master Lock in 2012 and is not only directional (opens up, down, left, or right instead of traditional rotary style), but is also the first ever digital padlock.

My favorite feature about it is that it allows for one primary code to be set, and three additional guest options (allowing guest users to create their own easy-to-remember codes). There is also an online vault (Cloud storage) she can access, where her code(s) can be securely saved, so I don't have to worry about her, or her besties forgetting the code(s).

The light-up key pad on the Master Lock 1500 eDBX dialSpeed is awesome!
Her favorite feature is that the keypad lights up (cool factor), and you can use the directional feel of your code for no-look entry (more cool factor).

The dialSpeed lock comes with an electronic digital interface, and comes with a replaceable CR2032 battery installed. It is a standard-size lock, 2 1/16" wide, with a boron carbide shackle resistant to cutting. Available in black or white. Indoor use only.

Master Lock 1535DWD
The Master Lock 1535 DWD Set-Your-Own-Combination lock is perfect for my upcoming 1st-Grader because he can create and use a short word for entry, and I won't have to worry about him forgetting his combination. If he does forget, resetting it is easy. This is a slim lock, 1 1/2" wide, making it perfect for his elementary-school-sized mini-locker.

Use an easy-to-remember word to gain entry!
The hardened steel shackle is made of cut-resistant hardened steel, the grip dial is easy for anyone to operate, including my youngest child, and it comes in fun colors!

Check out the Master Lock website to learn more about these locks, and the many other cool/practical/useful items offered to help keep your child's back-to-school items safe.

  4. I love the one that lights up.I have not seen any like that here.

    ReplyDelete
  5. These are the nicest locks I've seen, and they have a great marketing program to have some fun challenges kids would like. Many times kids lose their locks, they would like these enough to make sure that doesn't happen!

  6. My son gets his first locker this year and he is freaking out about the combination lock he will have to use. will show him these.

  10. Oh so fancy! I remember them when I was a kid, they only came in black. My kids do not need locks yet at their school but they would love these when they are ready for them.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thanks for sharing. My son is getting his first locker this year, and this looks like the perfect lock to keep his things safe this year

    ReplyDelete
  12. Those are cool. It'd be helpful for us grown-ups to use at the gym, for example.

    Cheers!

  13. We had to provide our own locks when I went to school - and everyone did. No one carried their books around all day. Now many schools have locks installed on each locker and the kid has to remember the predetermined code. I suppose that system ensures that every kid has a locker with a lock. It is pretty sad, to me, that this sort of thing is necessary... but your stats indicate it is.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I always forgot my combination as a kid. If it weren't for my mother working at my school I would have had to had the locks removed. They had to clip it several times in High School LOL. I love the letters lock for my little one. A must have for back to school.

  21. These are so cool-a far cry from the one's I used to use way back in the dark ages!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love their locks. These are good for kids to feel they have their things safe. My granddaughter carries around her heavy backpack all the time and we have been trying to get different locks on the lockers at school.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like the lock with the letters. I have the darndest time with combo locks and trying to remember the combo.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, those are some fancy locks indeed. Way cool.

  30. I love these I wish I had seen them last week when my niece was here. We always get her back to school stuff for her and I can remember last year her first in junior high she was more scared of the combination lock than anything else. We bought one and practiced all summer. She would love these though!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow! That is so cool that it lights up like that!

    Now for this post, while I am not very familiar with these locks, they do look and sound very good. I will look them up.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Those are some cool locks! I can't believe its back to school already!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Did you say digital? wow I can so see this being helpful for the special needs family's I encounter and for my own blog readers this is a awesome find. I remember thumbling trying to unlock my locker only to get frustrated and end up going to class with out my books because I couldn't remember my combo or I had been in such a rush I couldn't get the numbers out right in time. I would love a contact to do a review for Master lock as well.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Even locks have gotten cooler since I was in school. Learning how to open a lock actually takes some practice, but the ability to create your own combination is an impressive feature.

    ReplyDelete
  54. They don't make enough pretty locks in the world. I would take the turquoise one (unless they have a purple one that didn't make it to the shoot!).

    ReplyDelete
  55. Definitively I had not included a lock on our list of back to school. What a fun hunt!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love that they come to a variety of colors!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Ha! I asked the 13 year old if he had a locker and he said he hoped to get one this year... that last year he never could find out where to go to get one so he carried everything... UMMMMMMMM Noooooooooo
    I would have tracked someone down... lol... not a fan of carrying heavy bags :) (Unless it is full of money !)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I really like these locks. Those are very cute and trendy, my boys don't have a locker.

  59. Those are some cool looking locks. I would have loved that when I was in school.

  60. That's cool they have the one that does the words for kids. I was thinking how hard it would be for my younger kids to handle a normal lock. The digital one is pretty sweet too!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Wow, that's a major prize! It sure beats our 37"! That Master Lock 1500 eDBX is really a high tech lock and so much better than the plain combo locks of my day.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love the letters for kids! Love the digital lock. Seems logical that there would be digital options these days! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  63. We only use Master Lock products around our house. We have had a few issues in the past with theft and we know this is the best product to serve our needs. I love the new locks. Pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  67. That is so cool that it lights up! I would love one of these for the gym.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Wowza, locks really have changed a lot since I went to school and had lockers! Those seem almost stylish, even!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Masterlock has great items. I love the light up feature.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Wow, locks sure have come a long way since I was in school! I really like the features on this lock, especially that it allows for one primary code to be set and that there is also an online vault access, where codes can be securely saved.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  87. My daughter has always used Master locks on her lockers. They are such a trusted brand!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  94. These are pretty sweet, wish they had these when I was in school, my kids aren't old enough they need these yet for school.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I maybe don't need this but they are so fancy looking that I can even use them as a display.

    ReplyDelete
  96. We don't need this right now - but I will keep it in mind for later!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Super cool! I'm amazed at how stylish locks can be- not the old school hunky one!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Those are really cool locks, I need to get a couple of the girls when they enter into Junior High this year, but was told to wait because I have to see the lockers first as they fit different locks and the guidance counselor doesn't want us spending money on locks the girls can't use.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I used to use these locks in high school! They're definitely quality products.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Wow, there are a whole slew of locks these days. I remember my lock from high school, and yes it was a Master Lock.
