If there is one guarantee in life, it is that nothing stays the same. No matter how hard you try, you will not be able to successfully plan out every single detail of your life. Unexpected things happen all of the time… some good, and some bad. From childhood to marriage, to buying your first home, to retirement and more Master Lock understands the importance of protecting consumers while they celebrate life, or in times of need.

Some life changes we can anticipate and plan for such as weddings, and births. Other things may come unexpectedly, such as death and births. Yes, birth is one of those things that fall into both categories. You may plan to have a child, or it may be a surprise. In either case, once you find out that a child (or in my case 2) is on the way, you start to prepare. There is preparing the home, decorating the nursery, adding the new baby to insurance plans, registering a social security number, finding the right pediatrician, and so much more involved.

With the various changes in life comes the need to keep your home, family, and information safe and secure. Whether it be physically protecting your household, storing your important documents, or protecting virtual accounts it is very important to ensure that the wrong parties do not gain access to your information. Master Lock provides several products to help you protect what’s important to you.


Master Lock Portable Key Safe

Perfect for real estate agents, or owners selling their homes, the Master Lock Portable Key Safe/Lock Box securely stores a key. It opens with a push-button combination. This is also a great idea to help with emergencies. My mother-in-law put one on her front door with a spare set of keys in it. She gave a few trusted friends and family the code so we can get in if needed.


Master Lock SafeSpace

The SafeSpace is perfect for travel. I could have really used this last week on my trip to the beach. Not only can you lock your smartphone, wallet, and other small items in the Master Lock SafeSpace, you can also secure the SafeSpace to a large object with the attached cable which doubles as a carrying handle.


TSA Accepted Luggage Lock

I’ve had the “pleasure” of having TSA go through my luggage. They even left a gift…. someone else’s stuff. Now, that does not happen often. However, it could be worse. If TSA needs to go through your luggage, you would rather that they do not destroy your lock. Master Lock TSA approved locks allow the locks to be opened and closed with no damage.
