What can we do:
We can lock the luggage with a padlock on the zipper. But zippers can be opened with a pen and after can be closed without leaving any trace.
We can wrap the luggage with stretch foil. It’s true that, as it was applied once, the foil can be applied a second time. However, luggage is more difficult to open and theft is less likely because it takes too more operations and the thieves time is limited.
