  • But isn't it just as easy to cut the steel cable with some bolt cutters? It looks MUCH thinner than the bicycle locks. And those are cut very fast? Or is their quality 'that' good?

    • Sure, but it it meant as a deterrent, a "speed bump", not a bank vault. It is designed (and priced) to prevent casual theft, not a determined attacker. Think of it as insurance.

  • Wondering why you did not try to pick the lock on camera to show Abus wasn't so easy to pick instead of having to take your word for it? For all anyone knows, it could be as easy to open with the same tools you used on pac-safe lock.

  • So the weakness is the lock. Then the idea is to get a better lock.

  • Thanks. I just got an exomesh on craigslist but it didn't have the lock. It looks like a lock would just wind through plastic. Isn't this vulnerable to just cracking it with pliers, or am I missing something?

  • Hi, you will be happy to know that we have upgraded this product (it was upgraded in 2014) to include a more robust locking system and a heavy duty combination lock. This product is made to deter opportunistic theft. I think if you see the new product you would be happy with the upgrade. Thanks for your feedback! Cheers

  • Have any recommendations for a security cable (for train overheads or hostel/hotel room)? I use Pacsafe bags, so I assume a heavy duty 10mm bike cable is overkill and too heavy/big for travel (as it would be much easier to just cut the bag open). I'm interested in Pelican 1510 carry-ons too, but I think they might be too heavy (12lbs dry/empty), they also only have 27L capacity (compared to 40L capacity of other carry on bags), so I might skip it. I ordered a Kryptonite Kryptoflex 5mm 2.5' cable. Should be good enough yeah? Because I think even this 5mm cable should be much harder to cut, than just cutting into a Pacsafe bag. Also, I noticed luggage cables are much smaller at 2-3mm thick (so 5mm is already twice as thick).

  • it seems that whenever a lock is involved as a secondary product. Like Self Storage Units, or this product, etc. They always cheap out on the locks themselves which seems counter-intuitive when you business is security.

    motov80motov80Vor 4 years
  • Just randomly stumbled on this channel. Have no history with lock smithing/picking and the sort. However, I find this really interesting and it kind of peels the vale back on my sense of security. Which is ironic considering I work in IT and i've been telling people for years "security" is a myth. So long story short can anyone tell me where you would buy "custom core/safer" locks? Is there a person's business that does retail on them? +bosnianbill cool channel man.

  • For a lot less $$$ you could get a narrow ammo can and a short length of chain/cable, wrap it around an immobile object and use the padlock of your choice to secure the can latch and capture the chain/cable ends. Not really any less secure than this bag, plus it's waterproof.

  • That padlock you ended up using looks too big/over kill, it's going to attract more attention I'd say. Sure, use a less pickable one than the pac safe one but of similar size.

  • There's a saying out there that a lock is just meant to keep an honest man honest which in my opinion couldn't be more true; especially for things like this. I really don't see the point of buying bags like this because it can be easily opened or simply stolen until they can eventually get it open.

  • i had an incident with a guy that brought a (stolen)handgun in a backpack of which was full of heroin into the Courthouse, but stopped at the "metal detector". He was going to a hearing and took a taxi to the Courthouse - i asked him why he brought the gun & heroin into the Courthouse - he said he had no where to leave the backpack & didnt know those items were in the ba kpack. . . lmao whatta fool, the Judge didnt like it too much either - "click-click" 🚔🎒🔫💊💉

  • I just bought the larger one from them and they included one of those 3 digit rotary combination locks. There are TONS of videos on here on how to defeat those combo locks. Is there any combo lock that's harder to defeat than another? Also, I saw these luggage locks that use the card key to open: www.pacsafe.com/prosafe-750-tsa-accepted-key-card-lock.html . I also saw a video on here that showed an REI version that was much cheaper. Your thoughts, Bill? Thanks for your work on all these videos!

  • Nice one Bill! Some thoughts: 1.) The steel cable is probably easily cuttable with a diagonal cutter in one swift try (I did cut cables twice as thick with a diagonal cutter made by Knipex with much force with one try). I suspect more thieves to carry diagonal cutters in their pockets than lock picking sets and this will take about 2-3 seconds. 2.) From what I have seen in the video, the two holes in the plastic are formed like a snowman. When locked, the steel cable goes through the smaller hole and the padlock through the wider hole. With the original padlock (as the diameter of the shackle is kinda small), would it be possible to first get the cable also in the larger hole and in a second step move the shackle of the padlock up into the smaller hole (i.e. swap the cable to go through the large whole and the padlock through the small hole)? If so, can the bag then be opened?

  • Hi Bill, how easy is it to cut through that big blue plastic retainer? Wouldn't a all metal one be more secure, don't you think? It does make you think that if they're willing to supply a piece of shit padlock with this bag, what else are they overlooking.

  • According to the Pacsafe website, the bags now come with a TSA approved travel lock. There also appears to be other design changes. Does the mesh go all the way to the top of the bag to include the grommets? www.pacsafe.com/travelsafe-5l-portable-safe.html

  • That fabric doesn't look like some magically reinforced mithril fabric or anything, I'm guessing you could grab a knife or scissor and cut a hole inside the wire loop and pull the items out that way, not even engaging the lock or chain.
