It’s my favorite time of the year – back to school time. I always loved going to school and the excitement of a new school year was something I looked forward to every year. Making new friends. Taking new classes. Buying school supplies.
Buying school supplies?
Yep, you heard me, I love buying school supplies. My oldest will start Kindergarten in a couple of weeks, and I thoroughly love buying her school supplies. Granted, crayons and markers are easy. Junior High is where the school supply list can start to get complicated. Depending on where you live, your student (or you, if you are the student) may need to buy a combination lock for a hall or gym locker.
I have just the product for you lock hunters. Two products actually. The Master Lock 1500iD Speed Dial™ and the Master Lock 1590D Precision Dial.
With the Master Lock 1500iD Speed Dial™, you get to set your own easy to remember (resettable) combination by choosing any number of movements in any sequence. The 1500iD is the first lock with a design that allows you to set your movements up, down, left and right instead of the boring rotary dial way. However, if you are a traditionalist (nothing wrong with that), you can use the provided adhesive letters, numbers, colors, shapes and symbols. Just apply them over the lock’s directional arrows.
The 1500iD Speed Dial is also faster to open and more secure than normal combination locks. It features an anti-shim locking technology that makes it more secure than traditional combination locks. All that, and it looks pretty too. The 1500iD Speed Dial comes in red, blue, black with chrome and black with green accents.
With the Master Lock 1590D Precision Dial you can also set your own customizable (resettable) combination. However, this one is more for the nostalgic user, with the traditional (there’s that word again) rotary dial. With this lock, you can choose your own combination of any three letters or numbers and operate the lock with the standard right-left-right combination lock movement most of you are probably familiar with. An enclosed reset tool ensures that users will never forget their combination again. The 1590D Precision Dial comes in matte black, blue or green.
