TSA Luggage Locks - What a JOKE !

Jump to last reply

I just came back from a Mexican Riviera cruise with a two nights stay in Las Vegas.

Before leaving from Canada I saw an article about TSA Luggage Locks that were good for any airports. I had seen them but didn't know if it was a good idea.

The night before leaving I tried to find some but no luck.

When I was in Las Vegas I saw some, bought one with numbers (US$13.00). Put it on my suitcase. It said "you will see a green dot if your suitcase is not opened for inspection and a red one if they did inspect it".

GUESS WHAT ?

I know they inspected my suitcase, not by the red dot on my lock but by MY TSA LOCK MISSING!!!

Why bother to buy those locks if they keep them. Next time I'm using a $1 lock, if they keep it at least I will loose only $1 not $13.00.

I don't know if Las Vegas airport is worse for checking because on my first trip to Las Vegas, about seven years ago, my suitcase came back WITH NO LOCK.

I would like to know if it happened to anyone else.
