To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Its a good little lock. I bought it to lock my backpack up while traveling and all though I dont think anyone tried to steal my stuff, a lock just tells theives to go elsewhere. Ive tried pulling hard on this lock and its fine. However I think if you used some sort of tool it would be easy to break. My one gripe is the wire part of the lock (which I bought this product specifically for) is a bit of an annoyance to store when you aren't using it, as you have to just wrap it round itself.
I was looking for a cable lock and some retractable ones had mixed reviews , this one is dual purpose . A combination lock and when needed you can shove in the cable and wrap it round something solid to secure it . It is built as good as the samsonite combo locks I usually use and on a recent train journey from London to Edinburgh I locked my case shut with it and passed the cables through my holdall zips and through the luggage rack rails so it was pretty secure. Packs away wee too .
This is perfect for anyone who is going backpacking and will be using sleeper trains/buses etc as you can securely attach your bag to where you are sleeping. It can also be attached to hostel bed frames or used to lock two bags together. Much more secure than a normal lock!
Not easy to use and although it looks neat in it's packet this is the neatest it will ever be. It's awkward to carry as it's two separate parts and awkward to use as the wire clips into the base of the cheaply made padlock. I would not buy this type again. My retractable wire lock from 10 years ago is far superior but I wanted another and bought this instead. Disappointed in the product from start to finish.
Long cable which is very handy for attaching different bags together or different zips on your rucksack. Lock works fine but seems a little loose when locked. I have not been able to force it open so maybe that is just the construction? Would certainly act as a deterrent to an opportunistic bag raider.
These locks are fantastic! I take mine backpacking. I can thread the wire through all my backpack zips and around railings/bedframes. They feel a bit flimsy but mine has survived several flights and constant use. It provides great peace of mind when my belongings are out of sight.
It is a small lock but very adaptable with the security wire. Clearly will not stop the determined thief but great for luggage whilst at the airport, station etc. Small enough to not cause a problem keeping it with your bags. Highly recommend. Will buy a couple more, to keep in cars etc. Great for my photo-bag.
