When I think back to my high school years, the locker situation is somewhere up in the most memorable moments.  Each year I was excited to see who my locker would be next to and across from. I thought long and hard about how to decorate the inside, making “beauty survival kits” full of lip balm, hair gel and nail files.  I spent time there gossiping with girlfriends, but mostly I remember the stress.  You only have a limited amount of time between classes to switch heavy books and if you forget the locker combination, Lord help us all!!  I forgot mine regularly and also had an old lock the school provided that often didn’t function properly. I needed this digital lock!

Master Lock, the world’s largest manufacturer of padlocks has raised the bar with a user-friendly, digital combination lock with Backup Master Code.  Ensuring your child never loses their code again, there is a permanent Backup Master Code at  The Master Lock dialSpeed Digital Combination Lock has a unique light-up keypad that allows for ultra-fast entry.  Kids need stress relief wherever they can find it — here is one easy way.  This lock has an electronic directional interface (meaning the combination can be: up, right, down, up, left).  You really can just memorize the motion and open the lock without even looking at it.  Think the Simon game.  You can also give a numeric or alphabetic code… the possibilities!  This lock also allows for 3 additional guest combinations.  Check out the dialSpeed and other back to school products from Master Lock.
