Fall Family Safety Tips and Products from Master Lock

Fall is almost here, and with the arrival of a new season comes thoughts of preparing for cooler weather, putting away summer gear, and making sure the house and its occupants are safe and secure. Fortunately, Master Lock has just about anything you might need to help your family “fall back into safety” during this season. Here are some tips and products to help:

Fall-Proof the Back Yard: For many people, it’s time to put the pool supplies, deck furniture and lawn-care equipment away in the shed. Make sure to secure them with a heavy-duty lock like the Master Lock Magnum M175XDLF Padlock. Its Tough-Cut shackle is 50% tougher than hardened steel! Our family received this lock for review, and we could see immediately that this is one tough lock! It’s built to withstand harsh weather and theft. I like that you can set your own combination so there are no worries about trying to find a key. Besides sheds, this lock is also ideal for using on fences and gates to secure pools and pets.

Secure the Doors: Everyone’s back to work and school in the fall, which means there are more opportunities for thieves to break into your empty house. Make sure you’ve secured your doors with a Master Lock 265DCCSEN Door Security Bar. Standard door locks can be picked or broken, but the Security Bar provides the extra security you desire. Don’t forget the sliding glass doors! Fortunately, this product works on both hinged and sliding doors so you can protect all of the doors in your house.

Practice Gun Safety: Fall is hunting season, and it’s of the utmost importance that all firearms are secured and out of reach when they’re not in use. Make sure all firearms are stored in a safe, out-of-sight location, and use a deadbolt locking mechanism to secure them, like a Master Lock 107DSPT Gun Lock or a Sentry Safe Quick Access Pistol Safe. And don’t forget to store all ammunition separately.

Protect Digital Assets: It’s important to protect your family and your home, but what about less tangible items, such as legal documents, financial statements, and passwords? Fortunately, you can store copies of these items in the Master Lock Vault, which works like a digital safe deposit box to secure your family’s important information.

I encourage you to visit the Master Lock website to find more products and tips for keeping your loved ones, your home and your personal information safe and secure this season.
