Gun Locks

Tam just flew back from New Hamster (and boy are her arms tired).

Why?  Because a Pelican case fulla guns ain't exactly light weight.  You gotta flap extra hard with that heavy load. 

I like Pelican cases.  Duh, they are really good and sturdy cases.   Most I've seen have two locking points to keep the baggage handlers honest when you check your bags because: GUNS.

Question for Tam.  What kind of locks did you use on your luggage?

Lately I've been enamored with this lock because of this article's comments.  But 2 and a half pounds for a lock?  Nice.  And not cheap.  And I'd want 2 locks keyed alike.  Dunno how to arrange  that.

Get 2 exactly alike high security locks, and have a locksmith rekey one to the others keys

I use Master Locks, the thing with Pelican cases is you must have enough room for the lock to actually close. Some of the 'high' security ones don't have enough headspace to allow that.

What OldNFO said. I use two Master combination locks with the same combo. The shackle size and span is very important with Pelican cases.

Any locksmith can re-key a lock.

Tam said...

A couple of plain old Master padlocks.

I'll note that only two of the case's four latches were popped, and the locks held.
