Master Lock SafeSpace Portable Safe Review

I’ve always been a little paranoid about being a victim of theft.  I had an experience growing up where someone broke into our home through my bedroom window. They stole my dad’s liquor. We ended up finding out who it was (a local teen), but it affected me. I remember in high school locking up my locker and always double (sometimes triple) checking to make sure it was secure. Ask anyone who knew me they will tell you that I was always very careful about making sure my locker was locked up tight.

Now when we travel, I’m always nervous about leaving valuables in my hotel room. Not every room has a safe so I worry about jewelry or passports being taken.  However, now I have a product that I can bring with me when I travel: Master Lock SafeSpace Portable Safe.  This is my very own portable safe! It’s lightweight and will easily fit in your suitcase. I have a big purse so it fits in there with no problems too.  It fits smaller items like passports, credit cards, money, identification and small electronics (iPhone, iPod, etc), keys, jewelry,  or any other small valuables. I’m traveling to the US a couple times this fall and I plan to bring the safe with me. I’ll keep my passport and jewelry in there when I’m not in my room.

When I opened the SafeSpace Portable Safe, the combination was set to four zeroes. It came with simple instructions about how to change the combination and it also tells you to write it down so you won’t forget it.  I practiced opening and closing it a few times and it was easy. I put both our passports inside for safekeeping for now.


There’s also a cable attached to it so you can lock up the safe to a fixed object 0r use the cable as a carrying handle. This is a great way for college students who are going to the library or computer lab to work to lock up their keys and phone. I could have definitely used this product when I was in college. I was up and down all the time to the printer and I was lucky that no one stole anything of mine.

The SafeSpace Portable Safe is also water-resistant and the interior is lined with shock absorbing foam to protect your valuables. It even has an earbud/charging cable access port. It’s a multi-purpose product that can benefit many different types of people!

The Master Lock SafeSpace Portable Safe is available in three colours: black, white and pink and retails for $27.59. Purchase one online at retailers like Amazon or use your zip code to find stores in your area that carry them. Check out this extensive list of retailers in North America that carry Master Lock products.
