With law enforcement seeing a spike in crime during the warmer weather months, it never hurts to ensure that your belongings are secure when going on vacation or engaging in summer activities. Since 1921 MasterLock has been making padlocks and security products and they’re household name thanks to the wide variety of high quality products that secure belongings both in and away from home so lock up your bikes, secure items in lockers, and ensure that personal electronics are stashed away or that those that are out are locked to stationary objects.

Here are three essential and affordable products from MasterLock that can be used in and out of your home to secure your belongings:
2120D SafeSpace Laptop Lock ($28.90)— Laptops and other pricey portable electronics are magnets for thieves who can easily carry them away and then sell them and get a fair amount of money. Secure your laptop, desktop, HDTV, or backup drive with the SafeSpace Laptop Lock for stationary electronics or when on the go. The SafeSpace Laptop Lock works with any electronic device with a built in lock slot. Just slip the self coiling cable through the slot and lock it around a stationary object to secure your electronics.
1535DWD Combination Padlock ($10.40)— These brightly colored padlocks are perfect for young kids to use as they get used to securing belongings in pool lockers or their bikes. They feature the ability to create personalized combinations with memorable words and it’s easy to turn the letters to lock and unlock belongings.
1590D Precision Dial ($10.95)— Shaped like a traditional padlock, the Precision Dial padlocks are updated with fun colors and provide extra security thanks to the ability to use up to three letters and numbers as the combination. Twist the dial from left to right and feel secure knowing that you’ve landed on the right number or letter thanks to a satisfying click. This product seems better suited for upper elementary, middle, or high school students because while our lock was easy to turn clockwise, it was more difficult to turn counterclockwise. Perhaps this will become easier with use over time but it could be harder for smaller hands to turn the dial so it’s better for younger kids to stick to the aforementioned 1535DWD Combination Padlock or another favorite in our house is the Speed Dial Combination Padlock 1500ID.
