Make Your Travel Backpack Lockable Tip
this is a great tip. my small bag was not lockable, my solution was to tie together the pull-chords attached to the zip sliders in many knots. Again, no match for a knife or even someone with a few minutes, but at least stops theft while the bag is on my back unless they slash it.
Annoyingly, I had a couple cable ties and some duck tape with me, so I could have done this if I had thought to!
hi andy, still loving your regular and interesting scribbles..
Just saying I disagree with your anti-hiking pack stance.. My hiking backpack has only one entrance which has a drawstring which is already premade for me to thread a padlock loop into and lock shut with no modifications..
The best lock for zippers Ive seen are the simple and cheap keyrings that protect against quick opportunists..
Good luck with project windmill..
I am not writing or talking about Hiking bags, other to say a person should buy locking backpacks, not bags with a lot of pockets on the outside.
I know many many many people who have been robbed, I guess I want it to stop, silly robbery, just because they purchased a hiking bag to go travel.
I used to use the key rings for many things, until one day I realized the ones outside the USA are often soft steel and very easy to bend.
