Use Zip Ties to Secure Luggage

Luggage locks are usually cut off at the airports. I use plastic zip ties where the locks go. If they are cut off, then you know someone was in your luggage. Cheaper then a replacing a cut off lock. Works great.

Are Zip Ties the covered wires also called twist ties? Thanks. Sounds like a really good idea, as I am going to Ireland in two months from tomorrow!)

If airport security needs to open your luggage, they will cut old style locks or zip locks, but if you have the new locks (get them at a luggage store) the security people have keys to open for inspection; then your luggage can be re-locked and not available to other airport personnel or hangers-on. I really recommend them, especially if traveling overseas or if changing planes.

Zip ties are not twist ties. Zip ties are plastic strips with a sort of "buckle" on it that only works one way. You can't pull the end out after inserting it, so they have to be cut to be removed. They come in many different lengths and can be snugged up as far as necessary and so can be fastened around things of varying dimensions. And if you need one really big, you can attach one to the other.
