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!!!

      RELEASING A JAMMED SHACKLE

          Comments about Eagle Creek Brilliant Blue 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.

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

              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???

                            Tried to reset but virtually impossible. It then finally caved in after 30 mins of trying and is now stuck. Store won't accept it back because they said it's my fault. I'll never buy this turdy brand again.

                              I purchased two locks for one trip. After setting combination on both, one lock would not open and was therefore unusable. The second was installed on one suitcase. After retrieving the suitcase from baggage claim I noticed that the lock was no longer attached. Apparently TSA removed the lock (a note was left in the suitcase confirming it had been searched) but the lock was not re-installed nor placed in the suitcase. The lock was never seen again by me. Two locks purchased – one lost forever and one locked forever…

                                  Brand new out of the package and didn't work. I followed the written instructions and even watched the how-to video and I still can't get the lock to work with anything other than the preset 000 code. When I try and set the code the lock shackle will not release to re-lock.
