Masterlock Sentry Safe Review and Giveaway!



You all know we love to travel. We try and travel as much as we can. ALong with traveling though, comes safety concerns.

Whether in the airport, a hotel room or just walking around a new location, I am always looking for ways to keep my items safe. I always make sure to use a bag that I can keep close to my body and it always has a zipper. I do not wear jewelry when walking around.

In my hotel room, I use the safe to store anything of value. If there is no safe, I take it with me or keep it in the car. But carrying around my tablet is a pain. I am not sure if that is that safe either.


That is what I love about my new Masterlock Sentry Safe. This small safe is great to travel with. It is the perfect size for jewelry, car keys, credit cards or a small tablet. Because it is is small, it fits right into your carry on bag. It comes with a cable that can be used to secure it to a fixed object. I love this because I can attach to something in my hotel room and it cannot be taken. It is the next best thing to a wall safe.


This is such a handy item. And I am taking it with me to Myrtle Beach later this month when we are taking a mini-vacation. It will be the perfect companion since we are staying in a non-traditional hotel room.



Here are some other tips from Masterlock to keep you and your valuables safe whe you travel:

Pack Smart and Secure – Avoid over-packing by checking the weather forecast for your destination in advance and packing accordingly. Also, keep your luggage protected with on-the-go security products such as TSA-accepted luggage locks like the Master Lock 4688D or the 4680DBLK. These affordable and reliable solutions keep your valuables protected whether you’re checking bags at the airport while en route to your destination, or upon arrival and storing valuables in your luggage in your hotel room. 
Prepare for the Unexpected – If you are traveling by car, have your vehicle examined beforehand and stock up on emergency supplies such as blankets, bottled water, snacks, flashlights and jumper cables. Ensure your tires have good tread, are properly inflated and make sure you can locate your spare. Be aware of road conditions before leaving the house and plan accordingly. 
Tap into Technology – With new apps geared toward travelers, getting to your destination and enjoying your surroundings upon arrival is easier than ever. There are apps that offer real-time travel advice personalized to your exact location, weather conditions and interests along with direction-related apps that offer tips on traffic, road conditions and construction. You can also securely store copies of travel documents, health records and passports through the Master Lock Vault app for convenient 24/7 access. 
Enjoy the Elements Worry-Free – For less than $30, portable safes like the SentrySafe Small Portable Combination Safe or Master Lock SafeSpace Portable Personal Safe offer peace of mind and keep your cell phone, money, keys, jewelry, credit cards and other small valuables locked and secure while you take a walk on the beach, dip into the pool or enjoy an adventure of any kind. The compact and versatile safes feature a durable cable, which can be wrapped securely around a fixed object or serve as a carrying handle. 
Limit Social Media – While it’s appealing to share details of your vacation via social networks, this could make you a target for cyber-savvy burglars. Publically posting the dates of your trip or sharing check-ins and photos tagging your location creates a security risk to your home. Instead of posting in real-time, capture moments and photos and share via one photo album or video once you return from your trip.

Another Masterlock product you need to check out is the TSA-accepted luggage lock that offers on-the-go security, featuring an easy-to-use combination lock that affixes to your luggage. It is affordable and reliable solution keeps your valuables protected whether you’re en route to your destination, such as checking your bags at the airport, or once you’ve arrived and your luggage is stored in your hotel room. The Master Lock TSA-accepted luggage lock is sold online at masterlock.com and at retailers nationwide. Suggested Retail Price: $10.



The Sentry Safe Small Portable Combination Safe suggested retail price is $25 and can usually be found online and at retailers nationwide.
