Customer Reviews

Difficult to read the numbers.
Peter Evans
This is flexible, and thin enough for easy use, and it will keep nosy hands away so they could go for an easier target, like a suitcase without a lock.
Valerie Mansilla
It is small, easy to set combination and open/close the lock.

Very easy to set the combination and fit our filmgear pelicases very well. They withstand the rigours of travel - US and international - very well and I've never had one lost thru handling anywhere in the world. Sadly, TSA are not so rigorous at fitting them back on a case after checking - and they check our bags all the time. So I have to travel with several spares, preset to the combination.
The red color stands out well and makes the padlock easier to find in a cramped hotel room during packing, when all the gear is scattered around the floor.

In the past I've had types with rigid locks instead of this flexible cable type - they got knocked off the cases almost every trip - these ones can take a hit and have a little 'give' so withstand baggage handling much better.

We travel every couple of weeks - so these have had a pretty good field test - most recently in Germany, Sweden, England, Spain, Denmark and Italy. No problems with security there either - so don't be put off for international travel where foreign versions of TSA don't have the access key.

Just make sure you buy extras...

UPDATE:
So a year later - and still going strong - despite some very heavy use. No issues at all - and it's not often you can say that about anything these days. And to add to their international travels, these have now covered Canada, Australia, Switzerland, Holland as well.

So good in fact that I have just bought more for extra cases.

This little lock is amazing! It is extremely secure and very hard to bust without looking obvious.

I ordered two. One to use and the second to test...

During the test I found that if you try to use wire cutters on the wire, you will be twisting and gripping your hardest for at least a good 10 minutes just to get through. My next test was the sledge hammer. I nailed this lock repeatedly. All I did was jame the rollers so that the numbers could not be moved anymore. But still the lock NEVER let go.

Get this lock. You will be very secure and able to have peace at mind with whatever you have locked up.

We bought two of these, one for my wife, and one for my suitcase for a cruise we recently went on. They survived the trip, and worked great.

Unfortunately, many suitcase designers forget that folks might like to lock their luggage, and for some reason do not use those zipper heads that have the built-in lock clip. Our suitcases are lacking those zipper heads, so we have to run the lock through the zipper handle.

And with our suitcases, we have 3 compartments that need to be locked. One compartment is locked with a standard luggage lock, as we can put the lock under a strap to protect the zipper handles from damage should they bang up against anything (the suitcases are High Sierra duffels).

However, the other two zippered compartments, when using standard locks, didn't fit the zipper handles well (they looked to be fancy designer zippers), so they resulted in the handles sticking out - which said to me - I am waiting to be broken.

The solution we found was to use one of these locks. We could thread the lock's cable through both sets of zipper handles, and lock them without any of the handles sticking out (the zippers were close enough at one spot on the luggage to do this).

The cable for the lock is about 3.5" long, and the head of the cable is small enough that it will fit through most zipper heads.

I purchased two of these locks for a five-week trip through several countries, and they both withstood being dragged about and opened frequently fairly well. I like the combination feature because it kept me from having to keep track of a key. I never felt like my locks were in danger of breaking.

the lock on my suitcase, which was opened about once a day, did not suffer any damage (other than some paint chipping), but the one on my backpack, which was opened many times a day, did start to show some wear where the cable attaches to the lock. the plastic coating over the cable started to come loose and created kind of a kink in the cable. I don't see this affecting the lock's performance anytime soon, but it did make opening and closing a little less easy.

overall, highly recommended for a sturdy little lock without the hassle of a key.

Bought this for a trip to mexico. Held up great! Very easy to use and to set the combination.

However, on trip #2 flying from TPA to ORD, the lock went missing. Don't know why. I thought the cable was pretty strong, enough to hold up through the luggage roller coaster. I'd have to guess that TSA douches went through my bag and didn't put the lock back on. As another reviewer noted: "Sadly, TSA are not so rigorous at fitting them back on a case after checking". And that's true - you need to push the cable end into the lock and simultaneously move it to the side for it to latch in properly.

I'd say it's a good product...but not worth the cost if you need to buy spares like that other reviewed suggested. I suggest getting a lock that is easy enough for TSA to figure out.
