when flying we use tsa locks.
When we get to the cruise port we replace the locks with electrical zip ties. If the baggage screeners need to get into your locked bags they will call you and then observe while you open them. this could cause you a delay in boarding.
with the zip ties they can just cut them off and do their search.
we also bring extra zip ties for debarkation and toenail clippers for removing them in our stateroom.
Then we put the tsa locks back on before going to the airport to fly home.
My mother always said "If you can't say something nice about someone then don't say anything at all".
But then again George Carlin said "Think about how stupid the average person is, and then realize that half of them are stupider than that."
That explains why it's so hard to do as my mother asked!
