    Luggage Lock

    When we go to Aruba for our wedding in July, we will be traveling with more items that we normally would pack. I just mentioned to my fiance that I was going to by locks for our luggage for this trip. He said they were not allowed and woudl be cut off. Is this true? Why sell them if you can't use them?

    Cukie I never lock my checked baggage. I have never had a problem. Anything of value is in my purse or carry on.

    We have been using TSA approved locks for a couple of years now. There have never been any issues.

    The brighter colors help to make your luggage easier to identify , unless like us, your luggage is orange.

    I think the luggage locks would be a good idea.Last trip to Aruba,I had put my digital camera in my check in bag and you guessed it.When we got home the camera was gone.I have no one to blame but myself for that one.Still don't know why I didn't have it in my carry on.Trust me next time I will.

    I wish I had had one on my bag, even to lock stuff in my bag when we were out of the room. As long as it's a TSA approved it'll be a good idea!

    It's my understanding (so I could be wrong), being a tsa approved lock they have like a master key, open it, check your luggage and put the lock back on.
