Commando Locks

Why buy a Master Lock when you can buy the lock they use as a basis for theirs? Commando Locks ($12-$20) use the same Interlock technology as Master — Commando invented it, after all — and are available in a variety of styles and sizes that should fit your needs. They're not 100% made in the USA, but they do try to use as much domestic manufacturing as they can, which goes a long way when a vast majority of locks on the market are imported from somewhere else.

Sounds like you need the Snow Peak Lapel Torch ($60). This compact, water-resistant LED light uses a magnetic clip to attach to pretty much anything — a shirt, a backpack strap, you name it — and is powered by a remote battery pack that connects via a 28-inch cord and can provide up to 140 hours of light.
