      Samwise also briefly used it when he was in Shelob's Lair. While technically not a ringbearer along the lines of Frodo, Bilbo and Smeagol, he did have trouble giving it up back to Frodo (which certainly spared him any grief through its use), but it did eventually lead to his being granted passage into the West.

      Also, Bilbo used it for benign purposes (recovering stolen goods, avoiding unpleasant relatives), and Frodo hardly used it at all.
