In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Master Lock is offering pink locking products that feature the pink breast cancer awareness ribbon. The locks include rotary dial options for gym, school, or work lockers; new pink bike cables, a carabiner-shaped lock for backpacks and sports bags and even a lock that’s been approved by the TSA for use on checked airline luggage.
Master Lock is also helping to “lock up” a cure for breast cancer by supporting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation(r) with a $15,000 donation.
Master Lock pink products are available at Target and Amazon.com. But you can enter to win your very own!
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org; we’ll sign you up for our newsletter (if you aren’t already receiving it) and we’ll drop your name in the hat to lock up a Master prize.
