Video Shows How Easy It Is to Break into a Locked Suitcase – Then Seal It Back Up!
Prepare yourself. This video will eliminate any confidence you have in the safety on your locked luggage when its out of your sight.
A YouTube video shows just how easy it is for baggage handlers to break into a locked suitcase, and leave it looking like it's never been touched.
It shows how baggage handlers can simply use a ballpoint pen to split open a zip on a soft suitcase, help themselves to the contents, then simply slide the zip from one end to the other, to close the luggage back up again.
A lock specialist and American traveler made the video after a coworker had things stolen from his suitcase when flying from Africa to the US.
He recommends that people use a hard-shell case which doesn't have zips.... and using solid secure locks to prevent your things from getting stolen.
