Fall Back Into Safety This Season with Tips and Easy-to-Use Products from Master Lock

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

We're protecting my son's bike with Master Lock!

My son was gifted a new bike when we moved down here. It was THE perfect gift for him. He loves that thing and wants to ride it everywhere. Add that to the fact he just got a Turbo noise maker that works when he pedals, and I'm telling you, peeling him off of the bike and getting him into the house is sometimes no easy task. I don't mind. I like that he is having such a good time. :)  BUT we do have to lock the bike up...and the dollar store lock we purchased broke readily in no time flat. Tsk on me for even attempting to be cheap. Now we have a Master Lock lock on it, and all is well again in the world of bike safety. ;)

Master Lock has been protecting people and things for years!


As families settle into the new school year, Master Lock wants to remind consumers of security precautions to help ensure they have a safe season,” said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. “Although schedules are busy, it’s important for families to remember to keep safety and security a priority and to address safety topics.

Don’t let security fall by the wayside. Master Lock wants consumers to stay one step ahead with these tips to help keep families safe and secure this season.

The combo is on the bottom flap of this very strong lock. Love it!
1.      Secure the backyard: Swing sets, pets and pools are among the fun, recreational items found in many backyards. Keep these valuables secure with the Master Lock Magnum M175XDLF Padlock. From storing pool toys or patio furniture to helping ensure pets remain in the yard, the Master Lock Magnum M175XDLF Padlock’s Tough-Cut shackle is 50 percent tougher than hardened steel, making it ideal for protecting the most valuable items in sheds, storage lockers, fences and gates.

Add extra security to your patio and sliding glass doors!
2.      Lock up with lights on: Approximately 33 percent of break-ins occur through the front door, making it important to secure your home entirely to help avoid possible burglaries. To help protect against intruders, use a Master Lock 265DCCSEN Door Security Bar to resist forced entry through front, patio or sliding glass doors. For added precaution, make sure your outside lights are functioning properly and maintain a well-lit property to deter possible intrusions.

3.      Gun safety: If a household possesses firearms, it is of the utmost importance that they are consistently secured and not easily accessible, especially when children are present. Take maximum security measures by locking-up firearms and storing them in a safe and in an out-of-sight location that is also out of children’s reach. Designed with a deadbolt locking mechanism, the Master Lock 107DSPT Gun Lock can only be opened and closed when the key is inserted and turned for added security measures. The Sentry Safe Quick Access Pistol Safe provides readily available access when needed in an emergency, but its pry resistant solid steel construction helps prevent unauthorized access. Remember to always remove ammunition before storage, and keep ammunition in a locked location separate from firearms. 

4.      Protect digital data: Personal and sensitive information such as legal documents, social security cards and bank account passwords should always remain in a secure location away from prying eyes.  The Master Lock Vault is a go-to free, digital safe deposit box that helps keep critical information from falling into the wrong hands. Store passwords and digital copies of important documents all in one place with access from any smartphone or computer. The Master Lock Vault helps ensure this information is protected and secure.

  11. These are all great Tips .. We usually lock up everything and instead of leaving the lights on we either ask a family member to "house sit" or have a neighbor come in the morning and evenings to tur on the lights on and off .. that way things look normal like you are still home
