If you’re a frequent traveler then you’re probably like me when I say that I need to keep my stuff safe while I travel. While I don’t necessarily care if I lose a pair of socks or my toothbrush, I have plenty of other important items that need safekeeping on the road. There are a few must haves for me when I travel like one or more cameras or camcorders and it’s extremely important to me to keep them protected.
How can you keep your stuff safe then? One of the easiest ways is to use a luggage lock on your bag, be it a suitcase or a backpack. I won’t buy a no-name luggage lock and instead, I will pick a brand that is trusted by consumers like Master Lock. By relying on a brand like Master Lock, I know that I’m getting a quality product by a company that is dedicated to providing reliable and easy to use safety and security solutions so consumers can live a more secure life on the road. That’s why if you’re going to look for any kind of lock or other safety products, you know you can Travel Safe with Master Lock.
For example, whether I’m driving, taking a train, cruising on a cruise ship, or flying on a plane, even if I have carry on luggage, you can be certain that I’ve attached a luggage lock to my bag. Why? Because inside that bag I’m usually carrying my passport, cameras, cell phone, jewelry, and other valuables. I see luggage locks as a deterrent because if it slows down a criminal, they might skip my bags and move onto an easier bag.
Luggage locks like the Master Lock 4588D are easy to use and provide on the go security for travelers. This Master Lock TSA-accepted luggage lock comes with instructions, which are simple enough for anyone to follow. Press the button at the bottom of the lock, pick a combination, and release the button. It’s recommended that you write down your combination down somewhere so you won’t forget it. Then attach the 1-3/16 in metal luggage lock to your bag and go. I especially like that the vinyl covered flexible braided steel comes in the same color as the lock and yes, of course I had to pick red.
When I’m in a hotel or in a cruise ship cabin, I usually put my valuables in one of my bags and secure the luggage lock to it to keep my valuables safe. Not all room safes are secure or big enough to hold all of my valuables like a laptop, iPad, or Kindle. My luggage lock adds another layer of security to prevent a thief from stealing any or all of my valuables.
If you really want to up your game, I like to keep my important stuff safe while I travel by putting it inside a SentrySafe Portable Combination Safe. Whether you want to store your passport, credit cards, jewelry, cameras, flash drives, cell phone, or cash safely, consider putting them inside a SentrySafe Combination Safe.
How does the SentrySafe Combination Safe work? With .05 cubic feet of capacity, this small water resistant portable combination safe with steel construction and a soft interior measures 2.6 in x 5.9 in x 8.0 in on the outside and 2.4 in x 5.3 in x 6.6 in on the inside while weighing in at only two pounds.
Place your valuables inside your personal safe and in addition to the combination lock that you set, it also comes with an 18” durable tethering cable that you can wrap around a leg of a table or bed to add an extra layer of security.
When you receive your SentrySafe Combination Safe, you only need to set your own combination, which you can do with the enclosed instructions.
As you can see from this pic, I could easily fit my GoPro Hero3 Silver, my iPhone 6plus in its case, several SD cards, flash drives, and my passport and credit cards inside the safe with room to spare. While on the road I can put my safe inside my checked luggage or carry on bag and of course, secure the bag with a luggage lock. Even when I’m not traveling I can use the safe when I’m anywhere that I need a little extra protection for my valuables like in my car or at the gym. The SentrySafe Combination Safe is a must have for anyone on the move with valuables that need protection.
If I’m going to keep my stuff safe while I travel, I need products that are well made and from companies that I can trust. When all is said and done, in the end for everything worth protecting while traveling, you’ve got Master Lock!
