Disguising luggage

can ask for your bags to be inspected while present then have your own locks installed.

 

 

that is a good idea.

 

I have been stopped recently for carrying two bottles of rum (Dual DS-125 strobes). The TSA is not the smartest group of people.

I have also taken to loking all cases (except one) and simply stating that I would like to be present and offering to unlock the case should they desire to inspect the contents.

 

I just checked in both at LAX and MIA (doesn't THAT sound like aplace to lose gear) and not only had no issues, but never got asked to open anything!! I have found that the one item that always gets opened is the flash batteries fro my IKE200. I have 4 of them and simply wrap them in bubble pack with a address label stating: "Delicate Potograpic Equipment. Quesinots?? Call (999) 888-7777". I place them in my unlocked bag and viola!

 

I must say that each trip is getting easier WRT the TSA :lol: You just need to be firm, but polite and you will get your way.

 

I carry on my camera and lenses.
