Do you lock your suitcase and why?

Jump to last reply

Decided on new thread rather than hijacking TSA luggage lock thread.

Maybe I am just an ignorant traveler, but I have never locked a suitcase for air (or other) travel. I figure if someone wants to steal it, they will take the entire suitcase - since many airports don't check claim checks exiting luggage carousel anyway.

As far zipper opening, a ribbon or twist tie takes care of that. And if I had a suitcase with snap lock closures that were prone to opening, I would stop using it - who wants to risk dumping their luggage contents on the pavement walking to the terminal.

So what am I missing here?
