Stay Safe This Summer With Master Lock

5422D     Style: "PimpE"

The summer travel season has finally arrived! But with almost half of consumers using only the simple precaution of locking their homes’ windows and doors while traveling, Master Lock is reminding travelers of other important to-dos to ensure a safe and enjoyable getaway. Safety is very important tour family and it really is so important when traveling. 

I love the following article by our friends at Master Lock!

Master Lock Unlocks Tips to Keep Travelers Safe and

Secure This Summer

With nearly 45 percent of consumers in North America using only the simple precaution of locking their homes’ doors and windows while traveling*, Master Lock is reminding summer travelers that no travel plan is complete without proper safety and security precautions. Whether embarking on a quick weekend road trip or an extended vacation, Master Lock is offering tips to help travelers keep safety top of mind at every step of their journey.

“After one of the worst winters on record, we know people are eager for a getaway,” said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. “As the leading manufacturer of safety and security products, we want to remind travelers to take the necessary precautions that will help prevent vacation time from being dampened by safety and security issues.”

As travelers take to trains (preferred by 3.8 percent of North Americans), planes (24.17 percent) and automobiles (68.58 percent) this summer, Master Lock offers these five security tips:

1. Protect the Home Front – A home that looks deserted makes an easy target for thieves. To keep your home looking occupied, set your lights on a timer and stop your newspaper and mail delivery so it doesn’t build up while you are away. For added security, ask a trusted neighbor to check your home periodically and alert the police of any suspicious activity. Grant easy access to authorized visitors by storing your spare key in a portable key safe, like the Master Lock 5422D.

2. Limit Distractions on the Road – A focused driver is essential for any safe road trip, so plan to limit distractions by muting cell phones and packing provisions to keep young passengers fully entertained. Also, making frequent stops to refuel your body and clear your mind can boost energy and make for a safer journey.

3. Prevent Theft from Luggage – In a recent survey, North Americans said they would be most devastated if their cash (25.59 percent) or their camera (19.91 percent) were stolen from their suitcase*. With only 33 percent of North Americans securing their luggage*, travelers should consider using a TSA-accepted luggage lock to help ensure the contents of their bags remain secure. If possible, keep valuables that would be hard to replace in a carry-on bag so they’re always with you.

4. Protect Your Home Away from Home – Always lock up valuables when away from your room. If your hotel doesn’t offer an in-room safe, bring your own portable 5900D SafeSpaceto keep passports, jewelry and small electronics safe while you and your family are out and about.

5. Take Advantage of Technology – Advancements in technology continue to make travel both easier and safer. A smart idea for keeping kids safe is to take a cell phone picture of them every morning while on vacation. If something happens or if you get separated, you have a recent picture of him/her that shows the exact outfit they are wearing that day. Also, utilize the free Master Lock Vault app and website to store digital copies of important data such as travel documents, insurance cards, passports and medical information for easy access if paper documents are not readily available or are lost.

Bug Bites, Poison Ivy and Rashes… Oh My! TriCalm: A Summer-Must-Have!


It’s finally summer and your kids are ready to jump out of their skin – but not from excitement… Despite the copious amounts of bug spray and sunscreen you’ve applied to your little ones, they’ve still been itching and scratching ferociously at their arms and legs after their outdoor adventures. Pretty soon they’ll have scabby skin and teary eyes. You feel helpless: you want to try anti-itch ointments, but you’re not sure which ones are safe enough for their sensitive skin.

We recently received a sample of TriCalm and my son had an insect bite so we tried it. What I liked is that it works quickly! Actually, we only had to apply it twice and there was no more itching. I highly recommend this product as a Must-Have for the Summer!


TriCalm hydrogel is a dermatologist-recommended anti-itch product that provides rapid relief to summer skin irritations associated with insect bites, poison ivy and itchy rashes. It is a safe, steroid-free gel that decreases the sensitivity of the nerve receptors in your skin responsible for sending signals of itching to your brain. Because the gel is steroid-free and does not thin your skin like other ant-itch products, it may be used on sensitive skin and reapplied throughout the day. Easy to administer, fast-acting, affordable and safe, TriCalm retails for $10.49 and is available at CVS, Walmart and Walgreens locations nationwide.
