This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Master Lock through Global Influence.
This coming week, school will begin again in our area. I cannot believe how quickly the summer has passed and now, the new school year is upon us.
While my kids are homeschooled, I know many teenagers who will be heading off and I can pretty much guess, someone will wind up with something stolen in the first few days. Thankfully, Master Lock has some amazing new products to help us keep those precious items like keys, money, and cellphones safe.
Not every student has this problem, but many get things like cell phones, money, and more stolen each year. According to a survey conducted by Survey Monkey in May 2014 , nearly half of North American parents admitted that their child has had an item stolen from them at school. According to this same survey, more than half of North American students don’t use a locker to store their belongings – most opt to carry their belongings with them all day — making their valuables and easy target to steal.
For these students, Master Lock can give them an added sense of safety and security. Their line of products for back to school, including the Master Lock 1500eDBX dialSpeed and 5900D SafeSpace , are stylish, secure and customizable – and they have features to help ensure your child doesn’t forget their combination.
Master Lock 1500eDBX dialSpeed
Eliminate the fear of the forgotten combination with this high-tech gadget for the digital era. This lock offers ultrafast entry and features an electronic light-up keypad with a unique online Backup Master Code that users can retrieve from masterlockvault.com. It stores multiple resettableguest codes and sports a sleek, ergonomic design for one-handed, no-look operation to keep lockers stylish and secure. Available in black and white and retails for $15.99.
I could see how this padlock would definitely come in handy with locking up items in lockers for after school when you have practice. It also would come in handy if your child needs to lock things up in their locker.
5900D SafeSpace™ Portable Safe
Keep your things safe while socializing. Stash cash, jewelry, credit cards and more in the SafeSpace for security on-the-go. Features an integrated cable that can be securely anchored to a fixed object or used as a handle for convenient carrying. Available in white, grey and pink and retails for $19.99.
If your child insists on carrying his or her items with them, this portable safe is the way to go. Not only do you get to lock those items up for safe keeping, but you never have to worry about someone breaking into your phone, or stealing your cash.
They also offer padlocks for school and gym lockers, laptop locks, backpack locks and an online website and mobile app for storing passwords and other important documents.
