In developing the Electronic Built-In Locker Lock, Master Lock conducted extensive research with leading distributors and OEMs, end users, facility managers and architects to understand top pain points with existing products and identify features customers wanted most.

Master Lock Electronic Built-In Locker Lock Benefits:
- High-end aesthetics – Made from high-quality materials and finishes, including a brushed nickel-plated zinc body, a clear display and a high-gloss 12-digit keypad, the Electronic Built-In Locker Lock complements modern facility designs with its sophisticated look.
- Cost effectiveness – Powered by a single CR123A 3V lithium battery that can last over three years, the Electronic Built-In Locker Lock can provide facility owners significant savings in terms of reduced battery purchases and replacement labor compared to products currently on the market.
- Intuitive operation – Master Lock designed the Electronic Built-In Locker Lock for ease of use by both end users and facility managers. For end users, the display screen shows vacancy status, provides real-time code-entry feedback and clearly indicates lock status so they can be confident their possessions are secured. Facility managers appreciate the low-battery warning icon and the ability to easily configure the lock for single- or multi-user settings.
- Reliable locking mechanism – The Electronic Built-In Locker Lock withstands high-moisture environments common in locker rooms. Its bolt mechanism also responds to common jam conditions, such as bolt obstruction and back pressure caused by overstuffed lockers. If not securely locked, the jam sensor alerts users via visual and audible error notifications – when unjammed, the lock automatically advances to the correct state, providing users with peace of mind knowing their items are secure.
The Electronic Built-In Locker Lock makes securing, accessing and maintaining lockers easier for both facilities and their clientele. To access the locker, users simply create their personalized code, eliminating the need for facilities to distribute keys or manage combinations. Facilities can always open the locker with the lock's unique backup master code or with the optional administration key.
The Electronic Built-In Locker Lock is available for distributors in summer 2017.
The Master Lock Company will offer hands-on demonstrations of the Electronic Built-In Locker Lock at IHRSA booth #2438 March 9 and 10 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. For more information on the Master Lock Electronic Built-In Locker Lock, visit www.www.masterlock.com/ELL.
