{Cool for School} Masterlock

About the Products:

The revolutionary Speed Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock from Masterlock features a first-of-its-kind design that opens on directional movements – up, down, left and right – instead of a standard rotary dial. The lock is faster to open than traditional locks, saving students valuable time as they hurry to and from classes. This innovative lock is customizable, allowing students to create their own easy-to-remember, re-settable combination with any number of movements in any sequence. For those who prefer more traditional methods of recalling their combination, the lock includes adhesive letters, numbers, colors, shapes and symbols that can be applied over the lock’s direction arrows. This creative lock offers a helpful solution for visually impaired students, as users don’t need to see the dial to open it.

For those who are more comfortable with a traditional padlock, the Precision Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock from Master Lock features a standard rotary dial. However, you can leave memorization for the history books as you choose your own combination for this unique lock using three letters or numbers. The lock operates with a traditional right-left-right movement, and an included reset tool ensures you will never forget the combination again.

Like every great school accessory, these locks are available in an array of vibrant colors: the Speed Dial is available in red, blue, black with chrome, and black with green, and the Precision Dial is available in pink, black, blue and green. Both locks feature anti-shim technology making them more secure than traditional locks.

For an extra measure of security and convenience, students can visit www.combolocker.com. Combolocker allows lock users to store multiple combinations or key numbers in a secure database that can be accessed 24/7, 365 days a year.

From locker security to Facebook privacy, Master Lock is also offering a solution for locking up secrets online with the “Master Lock Secret Vault” Facebook application. Facebook users with a juicy tidbit or fun photo they want to share with a select group – but not their entire friends list – can install the application on Facebook, lock up their secrets in their own Secret Vault using a virtual Speed Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock, and create a custom combination to share with only a select group of friends.

The 1500iD Speed Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock and 1590D Precision Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock are available at retailers nationwide, with suggested retail prices of $8.99 and $7.99. Both locks are also available online from Amazon.

I received one of each of these fantastic locks for review, and not only are they made of the same high quality we have grown to expect from Masterlock, they are functional, fashionable, and easy to use! My son is going to be starting Grade 5 this year and it will be his first year getting a locker so I have been letting him practice and get used to using the Speed Dial lock. Since he has not used a padlock before the first thing he asked me when I offered him both locks is “Which one is easier?”. His name has 5 letters, so I used tweezers to attach the included letter sticker indicators and set the combination to spell his name. I handed him the lock, told him what the combination was and he was able to open it on his first try. Looks like it passed the easy test! He actually thinks it is too easy, and wants me to change it to something that others won’t guess. I told him we could do that if he wanted, or once he remembers the combination we could remove the stickers so that no one will be able to guess. The stickers that are included each have 3 letters, but if you wanted single letters I’m sure you could find other, similar sized stickers that would work.
