Master Lock

Winner in: 2010

The patented Speed Dial® combination lock offers increased strength and security, customizable functionality and new technology that targets users’ unique learning styles. This revolutionary padlock is the world’s first that opens on up, down, left, and right directional movements. Its innovative technology makes it faster, easier and more secure than a traditional rotary dial combination lock. Users can create their own easy-to-remember, resettable combination consisting of any number of movements in any sequence. For users who prefer more traditional methods of recalling their combination, the lock includes adhesive letters, numbers, colors, shapes and symbols that can be applied over the lock’s directional arrows. The Speed Dial® Set-Your-Own-Combination lock can be opened one-handed without looking for ease of use, making it ideal for visually impaired consumers and those with limited dexterity. It represents Master Lock’s most significant lock adoption in the company’s 90 year history.
