- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Easy to use and worth it, won't stop the truly committed but good to keep people away
This product is a great deterrent for luggage when traveling. It's fairly light weight and small. I would recommend it for anyone planning to travel.

Combination Set Instructions
How to set the combination on this lock.
After 26 years As a customer service agent for the majors, I pretty much laugh at locks on luggage. You can put the biggest padlock on your suitcase and any thief can punch the zipper with a knife or key to open it and re-zip it without damaging your bag or alerting you. Additionaly, we find more of these laying around the airport with your zipperpulls still connected after they were caught and ripped apart from your bag in the process destroying your luggage. The TSA will generaly inspect your bag in your presence at point of contact avoiding their use anyway. Based on expeirience, I always reccomend carrying all your valubles on your person and to avoid turning your luggage into a charm braclet of locks and oversized novelty tags that will catch onto every conveyor system, belt loader, cart or become the grabbing point of the handler tossing it 20ft to the next! Believe it or not, two slim straps wrapped in a cross around your bag are more of a deterent to thieves and secure your bag from opening than any lock I have encountered!!! In this pic: A few of the many I encounter Ripped off or the cause of damage to baggage!
This little lock is tough! You can program it to a code that you can remember. Obviously, bolt cutters would go right through this but I don't think pliers or wire cutters would defeat it.
I use mine to lock my gun carrying case and it works great for that.
Pacsafe ProSafe 700 Combination Padlock
I recently traveled to the UK. In arriving both in London and traveling back to the states, my luggage was check by TSA. Both luggage and lock was secured. ProSafe 700 lock secured my luggage in London's Gatwick airport and USA. The lock's neon blue color also helped me to easily locate my luggage on the conveyor.
Pacsafe ProSafe 700 Combination Padlock- It's TOUGH!!
I bought the Pacsafe ProSafe 700 Combination Padlock just before a recent trip to Portland, OR. I hadn't flown in a while, and I didn't have any TSA-approved locks . I had heard about how durable and secure PacSafe products are so I thought I'd give this lock a try. Right out of the package, my first impression of it was that it looked pretty damn tough! Setting the combination was super easy too, and you can change the combo as often as you want to. Before getting this lock, I've always used Master locks for everything and never had any problems w/ Master. But after this round-trip flight to Portland, I know know that Pacsafe locks are just as durable and secure as those big, burly Master locks. I recommend the Pacsafe ProSafe 700 Combination Padlock to anyone who needs a TSA-approved lock for their luggage, or for locking anything else!
Tough lil guy
Pacsafe makes some excellent products and this one definitely did not disappoint. I had bought 2 of these for an unexpected trip since I had lost my last 2. The combo is easy to change and its always nice not having to unlock your bags for security.
After the trip a friend was messing around changing the combo and forgot what it was after he locked it onto something. We had to take it to a another friends shop to cut through it cause it is build super tough. Needless to say I had to buy another but for the price its a cheap lesson learned.

Old question but you are out of luck if you forget your combination.
As a baggage handler from time to time we dawdle the time away spinning the tumblers on these locks 000-999, and can, in less than 15 mins find your combination and open them...lol! once open you can change your combo by holding the shackle down in the reverse position!
