-closed- Master Lock Traveling Tips and Locking Key Storage Giveaway and Review



I know Summer traveling is about over for most, but here are some great tips to think about for the upcoming Holiday traveling, or anytime spent away from home.
Before you load the family into the car or hop on a plane, Master Lock has developed a series of travel tips to ensure your vacation is an ideal time spent making lasting memories. To help avoid stress and frustration before, during or after a trip, follow these five guidelines so your time away from home is as pleasant as possible:
1. Secure all points of entry to your home, including dead bolting doors, windows, sliding glass doors and garage/shed doors to bolster your home's security. If you have an alarm system in place, be sure it is activated before departing. Leaving just one of these areas open or unlocked can lead to theft.

2. Keep your home active. Whether you've hired a dog walker or a neighbor is headed over to water plants and pick up deliveries, ensuring your home still appears to have people coming and going regularly can deter thieves. Store your house key in a key safe such as the Master Lock 5400D Key Safe to allow these individuals to easily enter and exit your home, locking it up as they leave. Make sure these approved visitors know the code to your home alarm system, if applicable, so they can deactivate it and reset it after finishing their tasks. If you do not have anyone visiting your property while you're away, consider placing lights on a timer and stopping your mail delivery by visiting www.usps.com.

3. Lock up your luggage. Airports are full of people and distractions. Items can be easily stolen from bags while awaiting your flight's departure, or before you pick up checked luggage from the baggage claim area. A TSA-accepted lock like the Master Lock 4688D luggage lock will help keep your possessions safe while in transit and allow you to move through security lines with ease.

4. Secure important items in your room. Whether you're staying in a hotel, cabin or resort -- it's important to lock up valuables when not in your room. A secure document storage or cash box will help ensure your passport, traveler's checks, cash and jewelry safe while you and your family enjoy the sights and sounds of your destination. If you're taking your small valuables out and about with you, consider a Master Lock 5900D Safe Space to keep your belongings secure while you're on the go.

5. Create an emergency plan. It's no doubt you will have several activities planned throughout the course of your vacation. In the event that a member of your family becomes separated from your group while out and about, each individual should have a list of important numbers as well as a plan detailing how to reconnect with the group.

For more information on security solutions, please visit Master Lock's website or the Master Lock Facebook page. Visit http://www.masterlockvault.com/ to utilize the free, secure online data storage application and download a smart phone app for easy access on the go -- an ideal place to keep important bank account and other information for emergencies while on vacation.

We were sent the Master Lock Locking Key Storage for review. What's funny is when I showed this to Mr. he laughed because he just so happened to buy the exact one for a job site they're working at, days before. He said he put them on the porta potties so the public won't use them while they aren't there. Hey it makes sense, right? You may have seen these on homes that are for sale. THey hold the key to the house so the Realtor can get in to show the home. But it would be great to use on your home while away so maybe your family or good neighbor can come over and check on things.

GFC follower, and I would use this for when we go camping on the weekends, but have the neighbors let the dogs out! I hate leaving keys lying around, and with this I'd know they are safe!
