Pink is the color of Breast Cancer Awareness, and October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Companies wishing to show support are offering special edition “pink” products that “give back” to worthy cancer research organizations.
One of the more unusual offerings I’ve found is from Master Lock. Their pink-colored locks and cables have launched just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you purchase these locks, you will help Master Lock to raise a $15,000 donation supporting breast cancer research. The specially designed locking products in pink, have a pink awareness ribbon , the universal symbol of breast cancer awareness. Why would Master Lock make pink locks? John Heppner, President and CEO of Brands Storage and Security (which includes Master Lock) explains: “By expanding our breadth of pink locking products,not only are we helping consumers lock up their valuables to keep them safe and secure, we hope to help unlock a cure for breast cancer by raising awareness and funding research.”
If you’re looking for new locks, or want to get some useful and unique stocking stuffers for the upcoming holidays, this is the perfect time to buy them. Help support breast cancer research too, by purchasing these pink-colored locks, featuring the symbolic, pink breast cancer awareness ribbon.
For example, what young lady wouldn’t love this pink combination lock for her locker? Get one for yourself (maybe for your gym locker), and let everyone see that you are helping, in a small way, to reduce and eventually eradicate, breast cancer! This lock is a very, girly pink, but it’s rugged, featuring a 2 1/2 ink lock with four wheels featuring letters, numbers, and characters. The combinations are resettable and allow for more than a million combo possibilities! The wheels have soft-touch dials for a no-slip, grip. And guess what? They cost just $8.49! there’s also a 1 7/8 inch lock that has a pre-set combination, for $4.34.
You can find dozens of uses for traditional locks with keys, and they’re much more fun in pink! This Master Lock pink padlock is a useful, 1-9/16 in wide. As you can see, the lock is covered in pink, with two pink-topped, matching keys. If you need a traditional padlock, make it fun and show your support, with a pink one! The single lock is just $5.99, a double pack is $10.49, or a if you really need to lock a lot, there’s a discount pack of four locks for $15.99
I wish I had a better photo of the adorable, Hot Pink Bicycle cable with built in combo lock. The 6 foot x 10 millimeter locking cable has a keyless, re-settable combination lock. It’s just $12.99 and will make your bike stand out on the bike rack or wherever you lock it. Hopefully, the pink vinyl coating on the wire cable will also remind people who see it that breast cancer is not vanquished just yet…but we’re all working on that.
Master Lock also has pink-themed luggage locks for backpacks, computer cases, and one TSA approved lock for suitcases.these range from an inexpensive $4.99 TO $6.99
