Master Lock Safe Moving Tips, Review, and Giveaway


Are you moving this summer? What about going on vacation? Does your home need any safety adjustments? Master Lock is here to help. Master Lock IS security. It gives you peace of mind in a fast changing world. Master Lock is recognized around the world as the authentic, enduring name in padlocks and security products.


More than 35 million people move each year and look forward to turning their new house into a home. But before your new residence becomes home sweet home, ensuring your move is safe and your new house is prepped with basic safety measures is of the utmost importance. 

“Moving into a new home can undoubtedly be a stressful experience,” said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. “Our goal is to help new homeowners make their move as organized and safe as possible by providing them with the necessary tools to do so.”

Master Lock recommends these five safety measures when moving and adjusting to your new residence:
  1. Secure All Valuables: Whether you’re moving your own belongings or have hired movers, it is important to pack all valuables in enclosed, secured containers. For fragile or breakable items, use an added layer of protection, such as bubble wrap or shredded newspaper. In the midst of moving mayhem, remember to lock your trailer with a Master Lock 379DAT Universal Trailer Coupler Lock that resists picking and prying when not in use or in between trips to avoid possible theft.
  2. Inventory Personal Belongings: Label your boxes by room, number or color-code, and create a list of the items in each box. This will keep your personal possessions organized for when you begin the unpacking process. When you arrive at your new home, make sure to check each list to ensure all your belongings made it safely and securely. Investing in a Sentry Safe SFW123TTC Extra Large Digital Alarm Fire Safe will assure your most important valuables remain safeguarded and protected as you settle into your home. While you may have heavy foot traffic between movers, cable providers and other vendors setting up your new space, this Sentry Safe Extra Large Digital Alarm Fire Safe’s loud alarm will quickly alert you if there is suspected tampering. 
  3. Install New Exterior Locks: Less than half (47 percent) of U.S. and Canadian residents changed or rekeyed the locks on their new home. As a major safety precaution, you should change all the exterior locks on your new home either before or when you move in. Previous tenants, realtors and other unsuspected people may have keys to the current locks. Replacing these old locks with new ones, such as the Master Lock BCCO0615 Entry Door Lock with Single Cylinder Deadbolt, will provide additional security with peace of mind, and ensure you are the only person who has access to your home.
  4. Change of Address: Before officially moving into your new home, make sure to visit your local post office or visit usps.com to fill out a change-of-address form. To avoid unintentionally giving strangers access to personal information, such as billing statements, credit card offers and insurance information, change your address before your move.
  5. Explore Your Neighborhood: Once you’ve settled in, make sure to familiarize yourself with your new neighborhood. Take a bike ride to meet your neighbors, locate the police and fire stations and find your local park district. Don’t forget to lock up with the Master Lock 8127TRI Keyed Cable Lock while exploring your new surroundings.
After reading these tips, I realized that I had never changed out the locks after moving in! Thankfully, Master Lock provided me with the Biscuit Style Knob Entry Door Lock with Single Cylinder Deadbolt so I could take care of that right away. The Master Lock No. BCCO0615 features a keyed alike biscuit style knob and single cylinder deadbolt, with interior thumb turn. The six-way adjustable latch fits all doors with 2-3/8in or 2-3/4in backset, square, rounded corners, or drive-in. The deadbolt is four way adjustable for 2-3/8in or 2-3/4in backset, square, or rounded corners. This knob and deadbolt combo pack is ANSI GRADE 3 and designed for exterior door applications. The satin nickel finish provides a sleek appearance. The Limited Lifetime Warranty provides peace of mind from a brand you can trust.


It looks so great! Not to mention that the old lock didn't always close the door tightly, which is totally unsafe. The new lock from Master Lock feels very secure and locks tightly. One of my lucky readers has a chance to win the same Master Lock Model No. BCCO0615 Biscuit Style Knob Entry Door Lock with Single Cylinder Deadbolt Combo Pack that I received!

When I move, I want to know where things are and who my neighbors are. I don't have to be "buddies" with every one but a introduction and hello's are, not just friendly, but a way of knowing who people are. :)
