    I saw this online a few days ago. I wonder if the catch that broke off so easily in this guys is the same piece missing from the OP's. He didn't even damage the box to get the lock's catch to come loose. Doesn't appear to have much of a weld on it. So much for how easy the cable is to cut. I'm starting to think these aren't even secure enough to use in luggage, which I thought was the perfect application for them.

    TSA had no right to open that box...IF you declared you were flying with firearms. You did declare, right? It should have been inspected, if they needed to do that, in your presence. You should have had to open it and re-lock it.
    ^^^ THIS. I am sure that TSA opened it. TSA is immediately suspicious of locked anything... I know that ain't right but that is just the way it is. You MUST declare a firearm with the airline before you check it, for obvious safety reasons. We had a ramp agent and a passenger nearly shot when an undeclared gun, thrown into a suitcase went off in the bin of the aircraft. The bullet punched a hole in the floor, went through a seat and damaged the skin of the aircraft! The bullet missed the ramp agents head by inches, and luckily the passenger sitting in the seat was standing in the aisle deplaning.

    That was before 9/11... when I was a ticket agent... I'm not sure what kind of cavity search is involved by TSA for guns in bags now... but I am sure that, since they are the Feds and represent DHLS, they pretty much have carte blanc to do whatever they feel is "necessary" to mitigate a perceived threat.

    Oh boy am I glad they{The Feds} have control of our health care.

    Can't wait to see the idiocracy that abounds with that runaway train.

    Think healthcare spending is out of control now?

    Just wait.

    The whole TSA deal is an outrage, and if people would stop flying for awhile they would stop the rediculousness that abounds.
    Businesses can hold most meetings via computer now, and a lot of corporate travel could be stopped.
    A side benefit might be reduced cost of doing business, and the savings could be passed on to consumers.

    I doubt it. Any saving would probably go into CEO/CFO bonuses.

    Are you sure the screw that holds the lock together did not fall out? I had this happen to mine, not on a flight, but in the car. I put it back together with some Lock tite blue and have had no more issues. Now if there are pry marks, etc. ...
