September is National Preparedness Month and Master Lock is here to help us keep our families, homes, and personal belongings safe.  As a member of the Live Secure Safety Squad, I had the opportunity to review two items to make our home and personal belongings more secure.  I received a Laminated Padlock – No. 5D and an 8413DPF Python Adjustable Locking Cable – both which are perfect for getting started to protect our home and personal belongings with National Preparedness Month!

Master Lock Laminated Padlock


My Thoughts:  
I find that the Laminated Padlocks really come in handy when you have a storage locker.  I used one when I was in the process of moving from Washington to California.  It’s also great to use on a tool box, especially if you have one in the back of your truck or in your backyard.  I definitely felt more secure knowing that I had sturdy and reliable padlock on the containers holding our personal belongings.  What would you use the Laminated Padlocks for?

Master Lock Adjustable Locking Cables


My Thoughts:  
The Python Adjustable Locking Cables are great to use on bicycles and motorcycles!  Who knew that you could also use the locking cables to keep your ATV’s, Grills, and even lawnmowers safe and secure.  I know that I can rely on Master Lock products when it comes to keeping our belongings safe and secure.  What would you use the Python Adjustable Locking Cables for?

    Master Lock makes great products for back to school and i like the lock for locking up my bike when I am going somewhere. These locks are sturdy and really last a lifetime.

  2. This would be great for a college kid to use with a trunk containing valuables they could use it to lock the trunk to their bed frame.

    I always choose Master Lock for their quality and recognizable name. I wouldn’t feel safe with any other. The Python cable lock looks great and could be used for so many things around our house.

    I’m going to have to show this to my hubby! He’s been looking for a way to lock his storage shed! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I am specially interested in the locking cables. Very useful review. Thanks for sharing.

  9. We need quite a few of the adjustable cable locks for our bikes. The husband rides his bike to school quite a bit. They would really come in handy because our bike locks are really sad right now.

  10. We *love* master lock products. We make sure to get locks each year for my brothers when they play sports, very convenient.

    This is such a trusted brand in our house – wouldn’t go with any other locks!
