5.0 out of 5 stars Super Lock, September 17, 2010

This review is from: Master Lock 4688D TSA Accepted Cable Luggage Lock in Assorted Colors, 1-Pack (Tools & Home Improvement)
This is the best lock out there in my experience. We had 2 bags that were checked in at the Johannesburg airport. Someone tried to get into both bags. They easily broke one of our brand new locks which was a different model. We found that other lock inside its ravaged suitcase (and many items were stolen from that bag). By contrast, this particular Master Lock had numerous cut marks on it, but it held up well and did not break. This model of Master Lock combines a metal shell and heavily twisted wires in a way that makes it withstand assaults very well.

Unfortunately same lock, same airport - no such luck. My lock was missing as were items from my case. I'm glad it worked for you.

Ann has only ever posted this one review and that was almost 4 years ago. Hmm....

I've actually posted many reviews although almost always using the link Amazon sends me. Maybe that uses a different name for me? I buy hundreds of items a year from Amazon, but usually only review items I'm passionate about. Unfortunately, we've had to buy a lot of these locks as replacements because the TSA someone "forgets" to put them back on our bags if they ever need to open a lock. They remain our favorites, but I would note they aren't good unless you have an overlapping set of holes on two opposite zipper ends to thread the lock. With some duffels and even suitcases, for example, you attach the lock to two separate zipper tips that don't ever overlap. Because this lock has a fairly large flexible top, this would allow someone to create a very wide gap between the two zippers without ever unlocking the bag. Sorry this is hard to explain without a video.

Ann, the "holes in the opposite zipper ends" was crucial to me making the choice to purchase this lock. Thanks very much you were extremely helpful.
