Holiday Safety Tips

Christmas can be the season of happiness and joy, but that holiday cheer can be ruined if you become the victim of a crime. While many people are out Christmas shopping and envisioning the smile on loved ones faces, thieves and other holiday grinches view the season a little differently. For them, the holidays are an opportunity to burglarize your home, looking for cash, credit cards, and gifts. You don’t have to be a victim though!

It is important to keep your home secure. Thieves know to look for a key to your home near the front door. Never leave a key under the doormat, under rocks, in flower pots, or above door ledges. Use a product such as the Master Lock 5401D to store a spare key. The 5400D mounts to a door frame or the outside of the garage and requires a combination in order to open it.

Additionally, thieves prefer to enter through unlocked doors or windows. Even if your doors are locked, the Master Lock Door Security Bar can add an extra level of protection for your home. The Security Bar can be used with either a sliding door or a regular hinged door. This security bar resists forced entry and can adjust from 27.5″ to 42″ so it will fit most doors.


If you are traveling this holiday season, the Master Lock SafeSpace 5900D is a perfect way to secure your valuables. This case is lightweight and portable, so you can put it in a suitcase or a book bag and it won’t weigh you down. You can put all sorts of valuables in the SafeSpace, including MP3 players, cell phones, cameras, gaming devices, cash, credit cards, jewelry, keys, passports, sunglasses or other small valuables. Secure the valuables by wrapping the cable to a safe or another fixed object.
