Heading back to school can be a time filled with many emotions. Heading to a new building can also lead to excitement and nervousness at the same time.
My oldest is headed to Middle School this fall. One way her school is helping to alleviate some of the stress of the first day is by having a day for the kids to come in and find their locker for the first time so that they can practice using the lock. Oh, and of course, to decorate the locker too. What an exciting time this will be! She will also need a lock for her gym locker so I am glad that Master Lock has different options for her to test out before the beginning of the year.
Did you know that nearly half of North American parents admitted that their child has had an item stolen from them at school, with the most valuable being their cell phone? That is a scary statistic. I am happy that Master Lock has lots of different products that will help her keep her things safe. Master Lock is always striving to provide families with the best products and advice to help families live their lives safely and securely. They also have a variety of stylish, secure and customizable products to make students “back-to-school” savvy and ensure they don’t forget their combination!
Master Lock offers a wide range of products and tools for student use including padlocks for school and gym lockers, laptop locks, backpack locks and an online website and mobile app for storing passwords and other important documents.
Master Lock has a great line of products for Back to School:
In 2010, Master Lock reinvented the traditional padlock with the introduction of the Speed Dial – the first padlock that opens on directional movements (up, down, left, right) instead of the traditional rotary dial. In 2012, the brand topped itself again with the release of the first-ever digital padlock called the dialSpeed.
