School just started in our county this week and it has been quite an adjustment! A parents worries are never over, especially while children are at school. Looking back to when I was in school, I remember struggling with our lock combinations so much that we would just leave our lockers open. Bad idea, I know, because this lead to items being stolen. We didn't have as many expensive electronics back then, but now kids have iPods, laptops, tablets, phones and more. In fact, the average college student spends about $281 on their back to school electronics! I even had my $400 bicycle stolen when I was in college. I always used Master Lock when I was in school and throughout college, too, so I never thought of using any other brand when my son started going to school. Did you know Master Lock has been around since 1921?
I certainly don't want my son's items stolen, so I have been looking at the Master Lock products that are perfect for back to school. In particular, the Master Lock 1500eDBX dialSpeed caught my eye, It's different from other locks in that it is actually electronic and, with so many amazing electronics out there, this lock is perfect for students and something they would love!
Yes, it looks cool and it is pretty awesome, too. Unlike other locks, you can encode several different personalized combinations for multiple users (4 in all), which is something I love about its features. It does take batteries, but comes installed with one that will last 5 years. The Boron carbide shackle is also very strong, making it more resistant to being cut. This lock is for indoor use and would be perfect for back to school! Now I can rest assured that my son's belongings will remain safe inside his locker, so I have one less thing to worry about each day.
In addition to the Master Lock dialSpeed lock we wrote about, there are many other great Back To School products they offer to keep items safe for students, including the SafeSpace Portable Safe (pictured below), which would be perfect in a dorm room so they can stash money and other important items, and the SafeSpace Laptop Computer Lock, keeping computers safely locked when students are not around. Be sure to check out the Master Lock website for all the other great back to school products!
