Plastic Wrap Luggage Security Better Than Locks But Not Inside USA


Gadget

When I got to the Air Moroc check in, they made me take the plastic off, so as best I can tell, this plastic is not allowed in the USA. What is interesting, one time in the Dominican Republic, they would not allow my bag to be checked until I paid to have the plastic put on it, because I had some stuff tied on the outside of the bag. I am not sure which countries allow, or not allow, the wrapping above in first part of clip was from Mexico City Airport. These machines are everywhere on the planet, and a roll of saran wrap looks like it will do a fine job. I will carry one with me from now on. Thanks, Andy, Just wanted to make sure this tip was caught. Andy

That genius, I cant believe why anyone (including me) have thought of doing that themselves, the wrap goes for 9$ so you leave 1usd for tip, which is a rip off... how much do those plastic paper tubes cost Andy? they are light so you can keep them with you at all times in your suitcases without problems...

I purchase in 3 rolls in Dollar General for I think 1 or 2 dollars each, and one roll appears to be able to do this maybe 5-10 times, hard to know, I have only done one bag. I saw this being done somewhere, and finally was in the USA where I can buy this type of wrap easy, most places I go, this type of stuff can take hours, days to buy, and need a special trip to the Capital of Country. As best I can tell, carry one roll and it should do maybe 3-4 flights. Yet again, as Steve pointed out in Miiami, it was different, so maybe so, maybe not, best to make baggage lockable. Here is a video on how do that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1UGyf3WxYM
