First one didn't work but the buyer sorted out a new one very quickly. Both came in reasonable time infact i think a bit earlier than what was mentioned here. The second one worked perfectly and i planned to use on my overseas trip, unfortunately Covid decided it was its time to shine and so my trip got postponed :( but the lock is great and no ones getting into my bag.
I purchased this lock for a five week overseas adventure. The lock was used on a Peak Design 45L travel backpack to secure the two sets on zippers on the top of the pack. Easy to use and a great size. Gave us the piece of mind that our gear was more secure.
I bought this to use with a travel holdall style bag as I wanted to anchor my zippers in position to stop thieves using the well known biro technique to get into zippers and resealing them to make it look like nothing has been tampered with (check out YouTube - plenty of examples on there!). For this purpose it is good to have the versatility of having dual cables to use - both of which can be removed to allow you to use it with just one cable if you wish. Adjusting the combination was easy enough and locking it also just as easy.
There are two lengths of cable - one long(ish), and one shorter - allowing me to lock my zippers to one of the straps or to the attachment look for the shoulder strap. So it secures the zippers in place, locking them so they cannot move much - thus making impossible to re-seal / re-zip a bag after it has been broken into with a biro.
I've used it on two business trips so far and it has worked fine. The only areas i have concern about are the locking mechanism and the overall strength of the construction doesn't seem to be tough enough to withstand the typical abuse that checked luggage is subjected to by baggage handlers at airports...Time will tell...
Does what is expected of a lock with a double metal cord.
One can do either of the following: - put one end through one double zip, then the other end through another double zip. - put one end through a double zip, then the other end through a bag handle (stops the zips from being movable). - put one end through a double zip, then the other end around a nearby object (stop the bag from being moved).
It's also quite light for what it is. And while it's not gonna stop a determined thief, it will afford one some extra security and usefulness when on your travels.
I paid just under 11 quid in April 2017, and this is the maximum I'd pay for this. So yes, worth it for the piece of mind it offers whilst travelling.
Really happy with the purchase, you see the videos on social media of airport staff using a Biro pen to open padlocked suitcases without having to pick the lock in a matter of seconds which made me quite paranoid. There haven't been any notable break ins on the padlock itself but i can confirm it survived a trip without my luggage being breached.
have used this to lock my computer bag which this fits well and have used since end of may when it was delivered BUT at Nice Airport yesterday tried to open failed about 50 times, got home tried another 10 times total failure, cut it off. Can find no way to complain so writing this to warn others who may not have access to a good set of bolt cutters.
