MILWAUKEE — Responding to user comments, Master Lock has created the Magnification Combination Padlock that includes larger font size and an all-new optical grade 360-degree magnification lens.

“After listening closely to user feedback on our wide variety of personal padlocks, we found that a number of our customers were experiencing difficulties with reading the small numbers on their locks,” said Cris Smyczek, senior product manager at Master Lock, in a statement. “The new Magnification Combination Padlock is meant to be an innovative and welcome solution for those older users with an active lifestyle and young professionals who encounter challenges reading their combinations due to farsightedness.”

According to the release, one in three Americans over the age of 50 say they experience tired eyes due to digital eye strain.

Some of the other benefits of the Magnification Combination Padlock include an optical grade 360-degree magnification lens that obscures the combination from nearby onlookers and a rotary dial with classic right-left-right functionality and tactile feedback with large font in all-numbered positions for precision dialing.
