Built-in TSA locks - deterring theft in hotel rooms

Jump to last reply

I recently purchased a hard-side suitcase that closes with a latch incorporating a TSA combination lock. I have now heard that pilfered TSA keys (or copies of TSA keys) may be in the hands of hotel staff who could easily and discreetly break into these suitcases in hotel rooms.

I have always placed my valuables inside locked luggage when not in my room. Unfortunately, my new suitcase is apparently vulnerable through the built-in TSA lock. Not all hotels have in-room safes, so I am wondering if there are additional locks that can be added to a suitcase latch? Other ideas to deter theft? Luggage straps?
