The Master Lock Company Reminds North Americans to Establish Home Security Plans Surrounding Fire Prevention Month

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2016) - In 2015, 1.4 million fires were reported in the United States, resulting in fire departments responding to a fire emergency every 23 seconds and $14.3 billion in property damage*. With October kicking off National Fire Prevention Month, The Master Lock Company is providing safety and security tips to help North Americans prepare and protect their homes and families. "This time of year is a good reminder to revisit your family's safety plan," said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for The Master Lock Company. "It's imperative to prepare for worse case scenarios, by prepping your home, belongings and loved ones in case disaster strikes." With that in mind, The Master Lock Company offers four tips surrounding fire prevention:

Take Inventory of Your Home: Evaluate your home to ensure you remove potential fire hazards -- such as turning off portable heaters when you leave the room and keeping items that can catch on fire at least three feet away from anything that gets hot, such as space heaters. Ensure the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are fully charged and checked monthly and verify your fire extinguisher has not expired. Also, educate younger members in the household on fire safety and review the sound of smoke alarms, so they recognize one if it goes off.
Create and Practice a Fire Safety Plan: Make an evacuation plan by visiting each room in your home, and determine two ways out -- checking that all windows and doors open easily. Lastly, designate a safe meeting place outside the home where your family can gather after exiting. This meeting place should be close to the home, but not too close to be in danger from the fire, and in front of the house so that fire safety personnel can easily see you as they arrive. It should also be somewhere easy to find in day or night, such as near a telephone pole, tree or mailbox. Most importantly, practice the escape plan.
Add Exterior Safety Measures: Regularly prune landscaping around your doors, windows and entryway, and consider installing lights above doors and near your garage or carport to help family members execute the family evacuation plan calmly and safely. This also allows for emergency responders to easily see your home and identify your house number from the street. Additionally, stay up-to-date on local emergency best practices. Many local fire departments require key safes on multi-unit properties to allow for immediate access for life-saving activities. Utilize an easy-to-use lock box like the Master Lock 5422D (portable) or the Master Lock 5423D (wall mount), which enable users to set their own combination and allow home access to others if needed. These lock boxes hold multiple keys and can be easily affixed to a doorknob or installed, ensuring keys are always readily available.
Protect Your Belongings: Store important or irreplaceable documents, such as birth certificates, passports, social security cards, CDs, digital files, photos, and other valuables in a fire-resistant safe**, such as the SentrySafe Fire Safe with Alarm (SFW123TSC). Available at Lowe's and other retailers, the safe is equipped with a digital, touch-access keypad and a loud audible alarm. As an extra safety precaution, back up critical documents electronically, such as identification cards, passports, and insurance policies by storing digital copies in the Master Lock Vault. By uploading documents into this free, secure digital safe deposit box, all items are protected from fire, flood and theft, and can be accessed from any internet connection or mobile device when they are needed most.

New Moen Research Discovers Habits of Women vs. Men in the Shower

The Skinny on Showering

NORTH OLMSTED, OH--(Marketwired - Sep 20, 2016) - On average, we spend more than 3,000 minutes in our showers every year... but how men and women use those minutes might surprise you. New Moen Research explores how men and women's showering and grooming routines compare:

Women take longer showers (7.2 vs. 6.3 minutes), but men shower more frequently than women. Overall, the average length of time spent in the shower has decreased by more than 50 percent from 2009. Shower time now clocks in at 6.8 minutes, vs. 13 minutes then.



More women than men do some of their biggest thinking in the shower, either reflecting on their day (84%) or running through their to-do lists (78%).



More women than men tend to shower in the evening, showering before bed to wind down.



Twenty-eight percent of those surveyed prefer handheld showerheads. Why? Because handhelds make it easier to clean hair and body while showering, clean the tub and/or shower and wash pets. Moen® hand showers with Magnetix™ even offer a powerful magnetic dock that allows for easy release of the hand shower, as well as a secure return back into place -- even when your eyes are closed.





"Whatever their showering habits may be, showerheads with Magnetix allow consumers to customize their experience to their unique needs," said Maribeth Kwasniewski, director of retail marketing, Moen. "With six high-performance spray options, ranging from traditional spray to pulsing massage; and a 60-inch, kink-free metal hose for extended reach, Magnetix hand showers make it simple to accomplish everything you want to do in the shower, from bathing the family Fido to relaxing at the end of a long day."

Moen Canada Launches New Advertising Campaign Focusing on Everyday, Real-Life Moments

OAKVILLE, ON--(Marketwired - Sep 13, 2016) -  Think about the first faucet or showerhead you purchased. Did you buy it to bathe your newborn, clean your little one's sticky fingers or perhaps wash your favourite four-legged friend? Maybe you just liked the look? Moen, the number one faucet brand in Canada, has recently launched a new ad campaign in Canada and the U.S. that shines a spotlight on the personal motivations behind choosing a plumbing fixture or accessory, asking consumers to explore their reasons for choosing Moen. The campaign is the brainchild of award-winning agency Havas Chicago -- Moen's lead strategic brand and media agency of record. Havas Chicago created advertising spots that represent real-life moments to connect the brand with millennial and centennial consumers as well as multicultural buyers. "Brand-developed content can often look staged and far from the reality of everyday life. Our goal was to create a campaign full of heartfelt scenarios that would strike a chord with viewers. We effectively accomplished this task by looking at how some of life's real moments come from our daily interactions with water," said Ecole Weinstein, Group Creative Director, Havas. "At Moen, we know people have strong emotions and memories tied to water and it's our job to make those experiences meaningful," said Garry Scott, vice president, wholesale marketing and brand development, Moen Canada. "This new campaign captures moments everyone can relate to... a new dad soothing his baby during bath time, trying to get a moment to yourself in the shower or a grandfather teaching his grandson how to install a bathroom faucet. We've all heard Moen's tagline 'Buy it for Looks. Buy it for Life,' but this campaign brings this phrase to life in a very real way for everyone from a toddler to a stay-at-home dad." The new TV, print and digital campaign launched in September across several Canadian media outlets. Short videos have been produced, as well; designed to reach shoppers online. Check out the active campaign elements at moen.ca/buyitfor. For more information, visit moen.ca. Tweetable Highlights:

Master Lock Helps Families Lock Down Fall Safety With Security Tips and Easy-to-Use Products

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Sep 13, 2016) - Between homework, sports, plays and scouting events, the fall can mean hectic schedules for families, making it more important than ever to ensure that safety stays top of mind. To help, Master Lock is providing fall family safety tips and easy-to-use products so parents and children can enjoy the season without worry. "During the fall many families' schedules are busier than ever, but it's still important for parents to make safety and security a priority," said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. "Now that school year routines are established, it's a perfect time to address safety topics with your children, such as guidelines for staying safe at home and on-the-go." Master Lock encourages families to follow these tips to stay safe this fall:

Be aware of surroundings. As dusk and darkness creep up earlier each day, remind children to follow safety precautions on their way to and from home. Whether walking all the way home or just to a parked car, students are advised to be aware of their surroundings, stick with a friend or in a group, stay in well-lit areas, avoid short cuts and always observe traffic rules.
Review bike safety. With kids of all ages riding their bikes to and from school and extracurricular activities, it's important for parents to review safety rules with their children. Lock up smaller electronics and other valuables, including cell phones and MP3s, in a portable mini safe, such as the Master Lock 5900D SafeSpace. While on the road, wear a properly fitting helmet and bright colored clothing that is visible to drivers and other cyclists. Make sure young riders follow the rules of the road by riding in the same direction as cars, stopping at stop signs and following traffic lights. With more than 1.5 million bikes stolen each year,* encourage kids to utilize a bike lock to deter theft. The Master Lock No. 8300D Speed Dial™ Set Your Own Directional Combination Cable Lock allows users to easily set and reset their combination using simple to remember directional arrows, letters or numbers.
Establish a "home alone" routine. Sometimes situations arise where teens will be home without supervision, whether coming home after school to an empty house or due to busy weekend activities. It's good to set guidelines with your children to follow when home alone including, locking the door immediately after entering the house, calling to check in as soon as he or she gets home, not answering the door for any visitors and reviewing relevant emergency phone numbers and exit plans. Instead of hiding an extra set of house keys beneath a door mat or under a nearby rock, the new Master Lock SafeSpace® Portable Light-Up Dial Lock Box 5424D is the perfect solution for securely storing house keys outside so that children (or parents) are never left locked out.
Practice gun safety. If a household possesses firearms, it is of the utmost importance that they are always secured, especially when children are present. Use maximum security measures by locking up firearms and storing them in a safe that is located out of children's reach. Designed with a dual lever locking mechanism, the Master Lock 107DSPT Gun Lock can only be opened and closed when the key is inserted and turned for added security measures. The Sentry Safe Quick Access Pistol Safe provides ready access to your firearm when needed in an emergency, while its pry resistant solid steel construction helps prevent unauthorized access. Remember to always remove ammunition before storage, and keep ammunition in a locked location separate from firearms. 
Revisit fire safety preparedness. While talking with your children about safety guidelines, fall is also an ideal time to create or practice a fire safety plan. Start with inspecting your home to ensure all smoke detectors are functioning properly and reviewing the sound of the alarm with children so they know what do to when it goes off. Make an evacuation plan by visiting each room in your home, designating two ways out and check that all windows and doors open easily. Lastly, designate a safe meeting place outside the home where your family can gather after exiting and practice the escape plan. In the event of a fire, you don't want to waste time gathering personal items. Sixty-nine percent of North Americans** said that they would be devastated to lose personal identification documents -- social security card, passport, financial documents and photos. As these items are nearly impossible to replace, a fire- and water-resistant safe like the SentrySafe SFW123FTC Extra Large Digital Fire Safe allows valuables to stay intact for recovery post-disaster.
