Rated 5 out of 5 by ToreyH Great lock, great price!
With the new laws you now have to have luggage locks which are TSA approved (meaning they can be opened by a generic key at any time) this lock fills the bill. Not only does it meet the new regulations, but a small red disc will pop up around the top of the lock insertion notifying you that you luggage has been opened. With an upcoming international cruise it was critical I get new locks for everyone in the family. So convenient to pick it up at my local JCP while I was shopping for cruise clothes!

It is the rule now that you have a lock on your luggage that can be opened by the TSA. This lock meets those regulations but also has the additional feature that it tells the TSA agent if the lock has been opened by them before so that you don't have your bags checked twice.

Bought two of these last year for a trip to California. On that trip they worked well and I had no issues. Got them out this month and what a disaster! One lock won't open at all. Thankfully I had it looped through one zipper pull. and could access the interior of my luggage. The second seemed to be fine, but the more I opened and closed it, the more more uncooperative it became, until it wouldn't work at all! I called lock smiths and the TSA, and no one had a solution, except to take bolt cutters and cut through the loop of the lock! I was advised to buy locks with keys. There are TSA approved locks with keys that appear sturdy. Looks like I'm going shopping!

I bought this lock and followed the instructions for setting a combination. I got it unlocked, then the shaft wouldn't go back down into the body afterwards to lock it back up. It would never "set" the combination or lock. I futzed with it a long time. Here I was, the night before my trip, with one bag that I couldn't lock. Don't waste your money on this one. You'll get nothing but aggravation.

I reset the combination on both of the locks I purchased and they worked just fine. However, after hiding the red indicator (located inside the shacklebolt), neither of them locked again. Very frustrating!

The lock was easy to use. Fits my luggage like a charm. Ordering second lock right now.
