It was a big deal when I got my first locker. In high school, it’s all about locker placement. You absolutely did not want a bottom locker. Freshmen with lockers on the outskirts of the campus were envious of the seniors who had lockers right next to the quad. My first locker was at the end of building F, next to the gym, and fortunately located in the third row – a convenient height for loading and unloading of books.
But just because you had a locker didn’t mean your school supplies were safe. There were locks that didn’t work and combinations that wouldn’t reset – something to be expected after years and years of use and locker door slamming by students. One way to help keep belongings safe at school is to purchase a sturdy lock. Even if the locker has a combination lock, a secondary lock will help ensure that some yahoo doesn’t decide to help themselves to those backpacks, electronics, like cell phones and laptops, money, and other valuables you just purchased for the kids.
Another way to keep those smaller electronics and valuables safe is with the new Master Lock 5900D SafeSpace, one of several products Master Lock has that are perfect for heading back to school. The Master Lock 5900 SafeSpace Portable Safe is just the right size for wallets, iPods, small cameras, and other smaller, portable valuables.
One of my favorite features of the Master Lock 5900D Safe Space is that you can set your own combination. I can’t even count the number of different locks I’ve gone through because I’d forgotten the combination.
Not only is the MasterLock 5900D portable and lightweight, it’s also water-resistant, making it a great way to just keep your valuables safe and dry during rainy weather. You can aslo use the earbud and charging cable access port to listen to music while still keeping your iPod or MP3 player safe.
