Great cable lock for travelling with several suitcases
on 16 April 2013
I purchased this recently to use on a trip to Belgium with 2 other people and it came in really useful. Great for locking several suitcases together on a train so that you don't need to worry about them being grabbed. It's nice to have a 4 dial combination lock instead of the typical 3 dial. There are essentially 2 buttons and one extra small one to set the combination lock code. One button releases the cord so that you can extend or retract the wire (which extends to just under a metre). Thread the cable through your luggage bags and/or rucksacks and then pop it into the lock. The second button releases the cable lock. It's about the size of a clamshell phone and is very light so ideal for travelling.
One thing to note though is when you've finished threading the cable through your luggage, you should press the button to retract the cable just enough so that you can place the end in the lock (so that the cable is as taught as possible). Once locked in this manner, the cable can not be extended by using any of the buttons and is more secure.
