Master Lock Security Lock Review & Giveaway**Closed**

I recently got an amazing new lock to try from Master Lock for storing some of our home items in a storage area. This was the perfect product to ensure that we had these things locked and out of the way but also protected.  The official name for it is a Storage Security Lock.
Product Features:
*Portable key safe provides secure storage of keys or access cards
*Convenient push button locking mechanism in familiar alpha / numeric telephone keypad format
*Set your own combination using up to 12 letters, numbers, or both
*Large buttons for ease of use, even in low light conditions
*3-1/8" wide durable metal construction
*Large internal cavity and removable key hook prevents jamming
*Molded bumper and vinyl coated shackle prevents scratches to your door
*Protective weather cover prevents freezing and jamming

It's very easy to reset once you get it. I was even able to do it even though I thought I wouldn't be able to and if I can do it then anyone can! It comes with very good directions so you won't have a problem getting it open or setting your own combination.
Master Lock provides an exciting online tool called Master Lock Vault that allows you to store up to five combinations and/or key numbers in a secure database. You can access your combos 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I really liked this because unfortunately, I am bad to forget things, especially numbers. I don't know why but I get them all jumbled up sometimes even though I am not dyslexic, I have been known to get them backwards sometimes, thankfully, not a lot but it does happen.
If you have any problems, there is a video on the page that I gave you a link to the product that I received. I tried to copy the code several times but it wouldn't work. Not sure why not, but it's on the same page on the right side of the page. It goes into really good detail as to how to open and set your combination.

They have a lot of other locks to choose from to suit whatever situation that you need. Whether for your home or your business, personal or otherwise, they have the right size lock for you. I was very surprised to see how many different locks that they actually had! I guess I just never thought about all the types that there are and now that I know, I will know exactly where to go when the need arises.

Here are some tips to keep your home safe and secure while you’re away:
*Never indicate that you’re away from home on your answering machine message. Turn down your telephone ringer volume. Unanswered telephone calls can alert burglars to an empty home.

*Show activity in your home while you’re away. Keep a car in the driveway, and keep interior and exterior lights on a timer. Consider a randomized version to turn your lights on and off at various intervals so they don’t all come on at once or always on the same schedule).

*Eliminate easy entry points by keeping entry doors, windows and the garage door closed and locked while away. To secure sliding doors, invest in a door security bar that prevents unauthorized entry, such as those made by Master Lock.

*Suspend newspaper and other deliveries while you’re out of town. Also, visit to hold your mail service.

*If you’re worried that people who may have access to your house keys -- contractors, babysitters, former roommates -- might try to enter while you’re away, a new product called NightWatch can help secure your home. With an ingenious locking mechanism, this deadbolt prevents anyone from opening a door from the outside, even with a key. Install them on all doors except one while you’re away, to prevent unauthorized keyed entry.

*Most people hide their valuables in one of three places -- a dresser drawer, the bedroom closet, or the freezer. Thieves know this, so it’s better to invest in a proper home safe to protect jewelry, firearms, cash and other valuables.

*Given the rise in identity theft, consider installing password protection software on your home computer to deter tech-savvy thieves. For example, Master Lock Vault is a combination website-mobile application that keeps all your usernames and passwords safe and secure, free of charge. You can find out more at

*Give your lawn one last trim, or ask a neighbor to do it for you while you’re gone. An unkempt lawn can encourage thieves.
