Why We Like It

I've traveled around the world with this lock and haven't had any issues. The combination lock is easy to use and inexpensive. The cable makes the lock more flexible and able to lock more items or zippers even if they have unusual shapes.

Note: All TSA-Approved locks are susceptible to be unlocked if someone has a TSA key, also anyone can get a pair of wire cutters and easily clip the cable. This lock is great for deterring thieves from trying to unzip your pack while you're distracted. Bottom line is that the best way to prevent theft is to be aware of your surroundings and don't leave your belongings unattended for a long time, especially in high-traffic areas.
