Master Lock supported two great causes in the month of October.  Did you know that every year, October is both Crime Prevention Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month?  I think each of these programs is very important and am glad to bring some recognition to each.

In an effort to raise awareness for breast cancer detection and prevention, Master Lock introduced a line of specially designed “Pink” security products.   To further support the Breast Cancer Awareness efforts, Master Lock has donated $60,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation since 2007. This year, Master Lock has launched an interactive Facebook game. It is a fun and easy way to get involved.  We play, they donate to BCRF!  Show your support and play today!

I received a pink luggage lock.  It is TSA-accepted and allows TSA screeners to inspect and relock baggage without damaging the lock. We travel quite a bit, so I cannot wait to test this out!  You set your own combination and it is easy to set and reset.  The unique and flexible cable makes it strong and sturdy enough to withstand the beating luggage takes!

Amazon has this Master Lock 4688DPINK Breast Cancer Research Foundation TSA Resettable Travel Lock, Pink for $7.97.

In honor of October being Crime Prevention Month, I received a Storage Security Box.  This is a key-locking file box made of durable steel.  I am excited to have this storage box to get organized for tax season!  My important documents should be all organized and safe making tax filing a breeze for me!  I won’t be running around looking for this paper and that paper come filing time.

Amazon has this Master Lock 7148D Locking Steel Security File Box for $17.21.

Master Lock created a series of simple tips to help consumers change their safety mindset, be aware of their surroundings and take small precautions to stay safe all year long:

1.       Lock everything up. It is essential to keep your home, vehicles, valuables and family safe at all times. Whether you’re at home or away for the day, all points of entry should be locked and more valuable items should be stored in secure areas. Consider utilizing such Master Lock security products as key safes, locking storage boxes and padlocks for extra protection. Every family member, including children, should know how to secure everything from windows and doors to garages and sheds.

2.       Limit availability of personal information. When on the go, carry only what you need. Do not keep social security cards, birth certificates or passports in purses or wallets. If possible, remove your name from marketing lists to reduce identifying junk mail and shred credit card offers that still come through to decrease the chance that your personal information could be accepted on your behalf by a stranger. You may even want to consider storing confidential data and information in a secure, online location where only you have access, such as the Master Lock Vault. 

3.       Start a neighborhood watch. Your street, parks and neighborhood should be an area where you and your family feel most comfortable. Forming relationships with neighbors can ensure there are additional watchful eyes on your home. Take this one step further by mobilizing a group of surrounding homeowners, encouraging each other to keep your eyes and ears open for anything suspicious and arranging regular patrols to increase neighborhood activity. In many cases, local police departments or PTAs will have resources to help you get started.

4.       Trust your instincts. If a specific person or place causes you to feel uneasy, avoid the situation by removing yourself completely, and alert authorities if a suspicious person is lurking in your neighborhood.

5.       If a crime occurs, report it! Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to share with the police, family or friends if you experience some sort of crime, regardless of how small. Relating your experiences can help the police or other families ensure the incident does not occur again.
