Dear ZZ

Are the Luggage Locks electronic or mechanical ?. It looks like
a electronic lock with three digit number input.

Can there be a way out in case the Locking password (for example 341) set up by passenger is forgotten for the luggage bag ?.

For example : Password set by the Passenger for his/her luggage bag goes as a SMS in his/her Mobile Number and saved or email address as soon as luggage bag is locked every time.

Can the Luggage Lock be programmed to also work with alphanumeric
or special characters combination ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
All the locks from among those you referenced are mechanical.
