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!
  saugumas	 safety"
