5 Master Lock Security Travel Tips + Giveaway


Master Lock wants you to enjoy the elements worry-free! Vacations are supposed to be fun and full of adventure. These security travel tips from Master Lock will help to ensure a safe and worry-free vacation!


1. Pack Smart and Secure :: Avoid over-packing by checking the weather forecast for your destination in advance and packing accordingly. Also, keep your luggage protected with on-the-go security products such as TSA-accepted luggage locks like the Master Lock 4688D. This affordable and reliable solution keeps your valuables protected whether you’re checking bags at the airport while en route to your destination, or upon arrival and storing valuables in your luggage in your hotel room.
2. Prepare for the Unexpected :: If you are traveling by car, have your vehicle examined beforehand and stock up on emergency supplies such as blankets, bottled water, snacks, flashlights and jumper cables. Ensure your tires have good tread, are properly inflated and make sure you can locate your spare. Be aware of road conditions before leaving the house and plan accordingly.
3. Tap into Technology :: With new apps geared toward travelers, getting to your destination and enjoying your surroundings upon arrival is easier than ever. There are apps that offer real-time travel advice personalized to your exact location, weather conditions and interests along with direction-related apps that offer tips on traffic, road conditions and construction. You can also securely store copies of travel documents, health records and passports through the Master Lock Vault app for convenient 24/7 access.
4. Enjoy the Elements Worry-Free :: For less than $30, portable safes like the Master Lock SafeSpace Portable Personal Safe offers peace of mind and keeps your cell phone, money, keys, jewelry, credit cards and other small valuables locked and secure while you take a walk on the beach, dip into the pool or enjoy an adventure of any kind. This compact and versatile safe features a durable cable, which can be wrapped securely around a fixed object or serve as a carrying handle.
5. Limit Social Media :: While it’s appealing to share details of your vacation via social networks, this could make you a target for cyber-savvy burglars. Publicly posting the dates of your trip or sharing check-ins and photos tagging your location creates a security risk to your home. Instead of posting in real-time, capture moments and photos and share via one photo album or video once you return from your trip.

I love these tips! I had a chance to try the products mentioned in the tips and I am thrilled to have them for our next vacation. The Master Lock TSA-Accepted Luggage Lock allows TSA screeners to inspect and relock baggage, without damaging the lock. It offers on-the-go security, featuring an easy-to-use combination lock that affixes to your luggage. These were very easy to set and reset our own numeric combination. Made of vinyl covered flexible braided steel, they offer resistance to abuse from baggage handling equipment. TSA screeners can open, inspect and relock bags with their own key.


The Master Lock SafeSpace Portable Personal Safe features durable construction made to withstand abuse and is water resistant. The safe is ideal for recreation, campus, office, travel or leisure use. It is large enough to store and carry your valuables (money, phones, passports), yet is still small enough to be portable. The safe includes a cable to wrap securely around a fixed object or use as a carrying handle. We plan to use ours on the beach and at the pool. It will securely fasten to a beach chair or any other object you choose.
