Master Lock Bicycle Lock Review & Giveaway (US Only)

Thank you to Master Lock for providing me with Bicycle Lock, free of charge, for review.  These are my own honest opinions.


Summer is almost here and school is out. What are the two things kid’s like most about summer? Sleeping late and riding their bikes. Bicycle safety is a big issue. When my children learned to ride I made them wear their helmets and even knee and elbow pads. As they have grown I’ve gotten kind of lax in the safety equipment department. There is I price I paid for it too. About $10,000.00. That is the going rate for a helicopter ride from Ripley Mississippi to Memphis Tennessee. My son was about 10 at the time and we lived at the bottom of a rather large hill. He rode his bike, wearing no helmet, to the top of the hill and was coasting down when he lost his balance and hit the pavement. Thankfully my neighbor was outside checking his mail and saw it. Adam lost consciousness on impact and began to seize.  He was bleeding out of both of his ears. It was the scariest time of my life. His too. He doesn’t remember it to this day. He suffered a skull fracture and concussion. He was in LeBonheur Children’s Hospital for two nights. It’s because of situations like this that Master Lock has asked me to share some bicycle safety statistics with you.

Thanks to Master Lock we can now keep our bicycles safe.


Their newest bicycle lock is pretty cool. They sent me a 6′ long 8220D Cable Lock. It is long enough to lock up both of my kids bikes, the fish fryer and the propane tank in my carport. Best of all the lock is a combination word lock. The kids picked a 4 or 5 letter word that was easy for them both to remember, we followed the directions and set the word. It was that simple. Even a do-fuss like me could do it.


It is easy to use and lightweight and comes with a bracket so those of you who ride to work for even for work can hook up quickly. It is made from a 3/8″ braided steel cable that resists cutting and sawing and is vinyl coated to protect the finish on your bike. The molded outer housing is impact resistant incase you drop it.

Master Lock is a name we can trust. They have been in business since 1921. They make every kind of lock imaginable and even have electronic locks now that require no key or combination. They even have ATV wench brackets. They have been around forever and have adapted and changed with the times and the needs of the public at large. You can’t go wrong with Master Lock in any situation.

    I”m bad with numbers, so I am thrilled to see that Masterlock has evolved from numbers to using words as well. It surely makes remembering the combination much easier than in the old days with the number combination locks.

    Next year I have to rely on my bike to get to and from school but to my luck I have no way to secure it. After searching for affordable bike locks I came across this giveaway ( lucky me). Hopefully, I win because this would be the perfect device to have for school. Thanks for posting!

  20. June 22, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    I love that you can set your own combination. When I was little I had one for my bicycle when I rode to school. I was completely freaked because I thought I would forget the combination. Now that I have three boys know I will for get a combination unless I make it up myself.

    I love how current Master Lock is becoming. They realized that their number locks weren’t favored just as their number and letter locks weren’t. They have realized that letter locks are more like-able than the rest and let me say it was a great decision.

    Its amazing that they have digital padlocks now. I remember how frustrating lining those numbers up exactly were, you couldn’t go to fast or you would jack it up. I don’t even know if I could work a combination lock now days.

    Masterlock has been around a long time, looks like it went through the wars, battleships. Advertising went to radio, tv and indy car. I’m amazed at how much they have done to keep jobs here, go green and continue to give us the best of the best with the new and the old. That was so interesting, thanks.
