I got to pick a Master Lock product at no charge in exchange for my honest review
As travelers take to trains (preferred by 3.8 percent of North Americans), planes (24.17 percent) and automobiles (68.58 percent) this summer, Master Lock offers these five security tips:
1. Protect the Home Front –
A home that looks deserted makes an easy target for thieves. To keep your home looking occupied, set your lights on a timer and stop your newspaper and mail delivery so it doesn’t build up while you are away. For added security, ask a trusted neighbor to check your home periodically and alert the police of any suspicious activity. Grant easy access to authorized visitors by storing your spare key in a portable key safe, like the Master Lock 5422D
2. Limit Distractions on the Road – A focused driver is essential for any safe road trip, so plan to limit distractions by muting cell phones and packing provisions to keep young passengers fully entertained. Also, making frequent stops to refuel your body and clear your mind can boost energy and make for a safer journey.
3. Prevent Theft from Luggage –
In a recent survey, North Americans said they would be most devastated if their cash (25.59 percent) or their camera (19.91 percent) were stolen from their suitcase*. With only 33 percent of North Americans securing their luggage*, travelers should consider using a TSA-accepted luggage lock
to help ensure the contents of their bags remain secure. If possible, keep valuables that would be hard to replace in a carry-on bag so they’re always with you.
4. Protect Your Home Away from Home –
Always lock up valuables when away from your room. If your hotel doesn’t offer an in-room safe, bring your own portable 5900D SafeSpace
to keep passports, jewelry and small electronics safe while you and your family are out and about.
5. Take Advantage of Technology –
Advancements in technology continue to make travel both easier and safer. A smart idea for keeping kids safe is to take a cell phone picture of them every morning while on vacation. If something happens or if you get separated, you have a recent picture of him/her that shows the exact outfit they are wearing that day. Also, utilize the free Master Lock Vault
app and website to store digital copies of important data such as travel documents, insurance cards, passports and medical information for easy access if paper documents are not readily available or are lost.
We don’t travel much away from home, usually just day trips to the beaches or parks, but I’m always looking for better ways to keep our valuables safe when we do go out. This Portable Safe Space is the perfect size for smaller valuables like wallets, phones, jewelry and credit cards and ID’s. This is even big enough to hold my huge ZTE Max phone. I like that this not only locks with a combination, but has the cable that acts as an extra barrier for security when it’s wrapped around the safe, can attach the safe to a fixed object so it can’t be walked off with, or can be used as a carrying handle. This is perfect for leaving valuable in the car at the beach, or leaving items in a hotel room when we are swimming or seeing attractions.
This Portable Safe Space is also water resistant, and has shock absorbing foam lining the inside. This caters to the need to have technology ever present by also having a ear bud/charging cable access port. This is very affordable too. I couldn’t believe how affordable this was for the amount of protection and security it offers. This is only $27.95 on the Master Lock website. How much would it cost you to replace your phone, jewelry and everything in your wallet? This is a great investment so that you don’t have to find out the answer to that question!
