With more young adults ages 18-24 being exposed to identity theft and other forms of security threats than any other age group*, Master Lock is helping parents and students lock up campus safety with the launch of an interactive game, accessible through the Master Lock Facebook page, designed to build awareness of campus security and showcase security products to ensure a safer, more successful school year. Launching today, the “Master Combo Challenge” game offers students a chance to win back-to-campus themed prizes while highlighting a variety of Master Lock®  security products, including the new Set-Your-Own Combination SafeSpace™ Laptop Computer Lock.

“Campus safety and security is a topic that is important to both parents and students alike. Our interactive game provides a fun way to learn about campus security and access product solutions that will help keep students and their possessions safe and secure all year long – and a chance to win great prizes that will enhance campus life” said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. “The game also allows Master Lock to showcase some of its new and most popular products that are must haves for any student.”


Beginning today through September 28, consumers can visit to participate in the “Master Combo Challenge” game for a chance to win gift cards, Master Lock products and more.  The game asks participants to answer a variety of Master Lock and campus security trivia questions to earn sweepstakes entry points.

My Take on Two of the Locks

My Take

All of us have had the experience of going somewhere and needing to leave things, but not having anything secure to use to keep things safe. Masterlock has just released an innovative new product that provides just this. The Masterlock Safespace is a great concept that allows you to lock up your cell phone, wallet or other things. You can take this on the go and no matter if you are heading to the gym, the library, or the residence hall dining hall, this will keep things secure. I was impressed with the size of this and how much it can actually hold. I also found it easy to use and very portable. For someone that plans to study in the library, this was perfect as it allowed you to simply lock it to the station where you plan to work without any issues!


Masterlock Dial Speed

Product Features:

  • Electronic directional interface offers speed, ease of use, & multiple personalized codes
  • Organize and protect personal and valuable information with secure, convenient, digital storage at the Master Lock Vault
  • Vault enabled – permanent Backup Master Code at Never Forget Your Combination Again!
  • Comes with resettable Primary Code & option for 3 additional Guest Codes
  • Ready to use – includes installed, replaceable CR2032 battery for 5 years of life
  • 2-1/16″ (51mm) wide metal body can be opened one-handed without looking
  • Maximum security with anti-shim technology
  • Boron carbide shackle for increased cut resistance
  • For INDOOR USE only. Do not allow lock to get wet
  • Each package contains one lock

Best Used For:

  • School, Employee, & Athletic Lockers
  • Cabinets
  • Indoor Storage Lockers

My Take

This was an innovative lock that provides a complete worry-free experience. I was amazed at the idea that you could pre-program both primary and secondary codes and have these codes stored online so that you would not have to worry about whether of not you would forget the code overall. The lock was ultra modern and easy to use. the lock itself was lightweight and definitely portable. It is an indoor lock so you do have to keep that in mind, but other than that this was a techno-junkie’s dream!
