Frequently Asked Questions

 

I haven't received an email confirmation of my order?

Our system automatically sends an email confirmation of your order within 1 business day of completing the order and payment - usually immediately.  Sometimes our emails are caught up by junk mail filters, so please ensure to check there just in case.  If you have not received a confirmation email within 1 business day of placing your order, and you have checked your junk inbox, there may have been an issue completing your order.

Occasionally your internet connection can be interrupted partway through the payment process and your order may sit as 'not finished' in our system, even if payment was taken.  If you have not received a confirmation email, and believe there may have been an issue with placing your order, please contact us on 1300 224 786 or [email protected] as soon as possible so that we can confirm the purchase for you.

 

My goods have not arrived yet?

Sometimes there are delays in shipping. It's always a good idea to use the tracking information which was emailed to you when your goods left our warehouse too see where they are.

I dont have any keys for my fixed TSA combination lock?

The TSA combination locks which are fitted to most suitcases do not come with keys. They key-hole you can see is for the sole use of the TSA (Transport Safety Authority) who can open and inspect your luggage without needing your combination. They are the only ones who have the keys and you only need your combination to open/close your case.

 

How do I operate my new fixed TSA combination lock?

To open your luggage for the first time, ensure that the dials on the lock are set to 0-0-0 , and then slide the latch to release the zip pullers from the lock. Instructions on setting the TSA lock can be found inside your case, or below:

Is this bag appropriate for carry-on?

It's always best to check with your specific airline as to their individual carry-on allowances and restrictions.  Generally, to calculate whether a bag is within an airline's carry-on guidelines, you should add the linear dimensions of the bag.  For example, for a bag with dimensions 55 x 35 x 25, you should add those 3 numbers for the total of 115cm.  Most major airlines around Australia accept carry-on luggage up to 115cm so this bag would be acceptable.
