There's a Lithuanian - English dictionary here:
from words with similar roots, and a PC magazine in Lithuanian I found
online with that word
I'd guess it has to do with safety.
"saugiklis protector; (autuvo) safety catch/lock/device; elektros
saugiklis - safety fuse
saugoti (saugoja, saugojo)vf 1. (laikyti) keep; saugoti paslapti; -
keep a secret; 2. serge.ti - take care (of), preserve; (ginti) protect;
saugotis (saugojasi, saugojosi)vf take care of oneself; beware (of);
*saugokis! - take care!
