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 Brilliant Blue Travel Safe TSA Lock®:

I am using these locks to secure the zippers on my carryon luggage, and they work exactly as I would expect then to do. They are simple to use and are straightforward in application. These are excellent locks and I would recommend to anyone.

Comments about Eagle Creek Brilliant Blue Travel Safe TSA Lock®:

This product was so dissapointing. I bought it thinking it would be worth the money and it would keep my possessions safe while travelling but it is impossible to reset and I have not had this problem with other brands.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Brilliant Blue 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 Brilliant Blue 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.
