I will never use another lock. This is the best. Yes, TSA often takes it off and does not replace it, or opens it without locking it, and if I'm lucky, it arrives hanging open on the zipper. This happens most often flying out of Seattle, which I do very often. I write a note and place it in my suitcase asking TSA, nicely, to re-lock my lock if they open my suitcase. I also travel with an extra lock in case of loss by TSA.

I thought I was following the instructions carefully, having messed up one of these before about a year ago. However, I missed the COUNTER-CLOCKWISE portion of the steps, and by turning the shackle CLOCKWISE, not only would the lock not reset its combination, it also could not be returned to the original factory settings for a second go at it. AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL!!!

    Comments about Eagle Creek Flame Orange Travel Safe TSA Lock®:

    A poorly constructed lock - the number dials on this lock don't have any positive clicking action, so when you try to set your combination by following the instructions on the package, you almost always end up setting a combination that's off by a digit in either direction.

    This is why so many people are having trouble with this particular brand of lock. another poster here suggested an excellent way to fix the problem - rotate all the numbers until they feel free.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Flame Orange Travel Safe TSA Lock®:

      As the other comments have stated, this lock got stuck while I was trying to reset it. It isn't clear on how to go about resetting the lock in the first place. As used frequently while traveling, this is a very frustrating and inconvenient lock when it comes to being user friendly. Resetting a lock shouldn't be so difficult!

          I had the same problem as the other reviews. The lock sticks and can not be reset. I tried calling both customer service numbers with no sucess. No answer. Goes directly to a busy signal. Since this is such a common problem, reset instructions should be included with the directions. Do not buy this product. It is not worth the hassle.

              I had the same issue as others on this site. I tried to set the combination and now am locked out. Nothing I do seems to allow me to reset the combination. I wish I had read the reviews before I purchased this item.

                  Opened it, followed the instructions very carefully, and it refuses to do anything. It's stuck and won't move or reset. very mad.

                      Comments about Eagle Creek Flame Orange Travel Safe TSA Lock®:

                      The majority of the complaints were on the difficulty of releasing the shackle after an attempt to change the code fails. I was almost ready to add my complaint, after checking the internet for any information on how to reset and release the shackle.

                      Putting together some info I got, I pushed down the shackle while turning the number wheels. At first this was difficult, but continuous effort paid off and I got all 3 number wheels turning freely and smoothly. I pulled on the shackle and it came free. Job done.

                          I purchased this lock because I had another lock that was similar and it worked well.
                          This never worked although I followed the instructions. Even there video doesn't actually show the lock being locked. Hopeless waste of money.
                          Not what you want while travelling.

                          On the back they leave out a crucial part of setting your own combination which basically renders the lock useless. DO NOT BUY. I've used dozens of simple 3-combination locks and never have I had one with such a stiff locking mechanism, or one that is so hard to set a combination for. Absolutely awful

                                  The product appears to be a good one but...
                                  I made an error while trying to reset the combination on this lock. Clearly, it was MY error. I contacted online chat. He quoted me the same instructions on the package. When I said that was what I was doing when I locked it in the open posteion. He suggested: "Visit your local TSA agent to have it unlocked" REALLY???
