Every time I travel, my Pelican 1610 cases arrives at the destination
with at least one, and usually two of the four latches open. I don't
trust TSA, so I carry the big ticket items on with me -- mics, mixer,
radios, recorder. (It's a doc kit, so the load is manageable.) I put
the stuff I can afford to replace if I have to -- boompole, zeppelins, chargers, headphones -- in the checked case.
Last week, my case arrived at SFO with 3 of the 4 latches open and my headphone cable dangling out the opening. Fortunately nothing fell
I'm fed up with the cretins that work for TSA. I mean how much
intelligence does it take to close the damn latches? I'm considering
putting decals on the case with arrows to each latch. Don't know if it
will make a bit of difference though.
Is my recurring experience the exception or the rule? I'd like some
input from the community about what it takes to keep checked gear more secure.
