June is National Safety Month, which kicks off the season for summer travel. While we all love vacations, it’s also important to focus on the safety of our family, vehicle, valuables and home when we’re away. Fortunately, Master Lock has a multitude of ideas and products to help ensure a safe summer.

Designate a Family Meeting Spot – No matter how carefully you watch your children at theme parks or other crowded attractions, it just takes a second to lose sight of a child. Living in Florida, we’ve been to several theme parks, and we always come up with a designated meeting spot in case anyone gets lost. We also wear brightly colored look-alike shirts so it’s easier to spot each other in a crowd and describe our appearance to a security official, if necessary.
