This post was sponsored by Master Lock. I received Master Lock padlocks and a promotional item. My opinions are 100% honest and 100% mine.
As you do your back to school shopping, there’s an important item to add to your list: Master Lock padlocks. Why? Because your kids need to keep their stuff safe and secure at school. After all, nearly half of parents in North America have reported that their children have had items stolen from them — with cell phones being the most valuable. Heaven knows, no one needs to lose (and replace) a cell phone that is worth hundreds of dollars!
With Master Lock padlocks, you will get a top of the line — and stylish and secure — padlocks for your students’ lockers, laptop bags, backpacks, and more. And — this is a biggie — Master Lock features a website and a mobile app where you can store passwords! I love that!
Several years ago, Master Lock introduced the “Speed Dial,” which took padlocks to the next level. Speed Dial opens on directional movements, meaning up, down, left, and right, rather than the traditional spin dial. In 2012, Master Lock released — for the first time ever — a digital padlock (the dialSpeed). And this year, Master Lock has introduced products in exciting, fun colors! Did you know that Master Lock is the largest manufacturer in the world of padlocks and security products, and has been providing security products since 1921?
Let me tell you about the dialSpeed, the Master Lock digital combination lock. Not only does it look super cool, you will no longer have forgotten combinations, because Master Lock provides you with the safety net of an online Backup Master Code that you can retrieve! With the dialSpeed, you get an electronic light-up keypad (fun!) and ultra-fast entry (awesome!). The dialSpeed also stores multiple resettable guest codes and an ergonomic design that you can open with one hand — without looking! It is available in black and white and retails for $15.99.
Master Lock also has the Set Your Own Combination lock, which allows students to set their own custom, personalized combination.This is perfect for the student who would rather set a combination in the form of a word, initials, or an acronym that they can easily remember. You can choose a black lock or a white lock with a bright dial. It retails for $7.99.
Don’t miss out on the Master Lock Photo Hunt Challenge, an interactive online game. You can check out Master Lock padlocks and other products and get a chance to win some, as well as other great prizes.

You have more than 65 chances to win — daily instant prizes, weekly prizes, and a fabulous grand prize — a Samsung Smart Media Center package!
