Parents and students are invited to submit their own questions for the Master Mind and participate in daily sweepstakes for a chance to win back-to-school must-haves, including popular Master Lock school and campus security products.

About the Master Lock products

The innovative Speed Dial features a first-of-its-kind design that opens on directional movement -- up, down, left and right -- instead of the traditional rotary dial. The resettable combination lock is faster to open than traditional locks, saving students valuable time between classes or at the gym, and is ideal for visually impaired students, as users don't need to see the lock to open it. For those who prefer alternate methods of recalling their combination, the lock includes adhesive letters, numbers, colors, shapes and symbols that can be applied over the lock's directional arrows. The Speed Dial retails for $8.99 and is available in red, blue, white and black colors, and a new white with pink breast cancer awareness design.

The Precision Dial offers a resettable combination solution for users more comfortable with a traditional rotary dial. Students can leave memorization for their chemistry class and choose their own combination of three letters or numbers. The lock opens with standard right-left-right movements, and is easy to reset with the enclosed reset tool. The Precision Dial retails for $7.99 and is available in black, turquoise, yellow and purple colors, with new white and pink breast cancer awareness designs.

In addition, Master Lock also offers a variety of other security products for all aspects of students' lives at school or on campus, including backpack locks, bike locks, portable mini safes, locking cash boxes, door security bars, pepper spray, and password combination locks.

As a former high school/university student, I have learned that it is important to never share your lock numbers to anyone.   This will reduce the worries about having pranks done to you and things mysteriously disappearing in your locker.    As the school year unfolds, I would also suggest that students of any age be wise with their time and plan in advance to do their assignments.  Waiting at the last minute will only bring you incredible stress in your life.    If you do your work in advance then you can have more time to do something you like to do like playing outside for example.

As a mom, I know it is important to have sturdy locks for adventure like swimming lessons.   I have used the Master Locks for myself while in high school/university and going to swimming lessons at the pool.    Today, I am using the same locks for my own kids when we go to the pool for their swimming lessons.  Thank you Master Locks for making sturdy locks!

  1. I have not tried Master Lock before. So...a resolution: to finally save up enough money for new kitchen cabinets.
