Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsonite Luggage Manual Scale (Apparel)
I purchased this manual scale for travel to East Africa on an aid and development mission. Airlines flying in and out of East African countries are very strict about weight limits on luggage- I thought this would be the answer to avoiding overweight bags. The scale worked with the first bag. With the second bag, the triangular connector under the scale bent open. I was able to bend the triangle back into shape with a pair of pliars. I didn't have time to return the scale before leaving the country- so I took it with me hoping it would hold together.
However, when preparing to fly out of Kenya, the triangle bent again and broke into pieces- making the scale totally useless.
Do not purchase this item. The construction is flimsy and the item is poorly designed.
I would have returned the scale, but by the time I returned from Africa, the window for return had closed.
I've ordered lots of items from Amazon- and am a committed fan of Amazon Prime service.
This is a problem with Samsonite, not Amazon.
