Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Travel Safely with Master Lock #Giveaway

Sunday, December 18, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Do you travel during the holidays? Maybe your friends and family do, too. Master Lock offers products that provide safety and peace of mind - whether you travel or stay home.

One of these products is the Master Lock Key Safe 5400D. This handy little safe holds up to 5 keys and mounts over the doorknob for easy access. Going away for a few days and need someone to walk and feed Fido? The cleaning crew will be coming and you won't be home? Having your bathroom redone while you are lounging at a beach somewhere? A friend is coming to stay at your house and you are at work? Leaving a key under the doormat is so last decade - as well as unsafe. The Master Lock key safe is the perfect solution to all these situations and more. Once my kids are older, I can leave a key for them in the safe if I am not home after school. The possibilities are endless.

The key safe is very well made and durable. You can set your own 4-digit combination - plus, there is a shutter door that protects the combination dials from the weather. Personally, I would place the key safe over the door knob of a back door. I feel this is safer than advertising my absence on the front door. Still, the presence of a key safe does not necessarily mean than the owners are out of town. For instance, key safes are frequently used by real estate agents when a home is for sale.

The Master Lock key safe retails at about $36-$38 but right now, you can snag it for just $16 on Amazon. The convenience and the peace of mind? Priceless.

Another Master Lock product that's perfect for holiday travel is the TSA-approved luggage lock. It allows TSA screeners to inspect your luggage and lock it again without damaging the lock. It comes in several bright, pretty colors that make finding your bag in a sea of similar luggage much easier. In addition, these locks can be used for laptop bags, gym bags, and more - making them an ideal stocking stuffer not just for the road warrior. Some Master Lock luggage locks come with a key while others have a three-digit combination that you can set up. It's a matter of personal preference - I like those without a key because it's one less key I have to remember to bring along. My favorite is the 4688DPNK - its beautiful shade of pink is more than a fashion statement. This lock is one of Master Lock's products that raise funds for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Last but not least, check out Master Lock's holiday safety tips. Then get a refresher on crime prevention tips, too. While some of these recommendations are pretty much common sense, it never hurts to get a reminder - especially during the hectic holiday season.

    Park in well lit areas, lock your car door as soon as you enter it, and hide purchases under a blanket or other object (or in your trunk) so they can't be seen from outside your car.
