      Disadvantages

      The computer says "small suitcases only"

      =2 way Strap for Suitcases=
      I brought this back in 2009 as I was taking my daughter on holiday with me, and being as I had got us new suitcases, happened to be grey, I thought this straps would not only give the suitcases added security from any rough handling, as my last suitcase the zip got broke during transit, and I was finding clothes had come out on the carousal, luckily was not the underwear!! So as the old saying goes once bitten, twice shy.
      I found these straps on Amazon, I paid about £10 per set, but figured that was a small price to say for safety, the only colour that was available at the time was Pink, which myself or my daughter didn't mind, but I'm sure some of the male population wouldn't want that much pink on their suitcase.

      Measurements
      The approximate circumference was 170cm in either direction, as it's a square shape function to it, the packaging recommended that it would fit a suitcase width 80.5cm, (apr 32in) x 91cm (apr 36in), but by hook or by crook I could not get it to fit my 30in suitcase, it fitted the 26in suitcase that my daughter used. The strap measure about 5cm in width, and has padded sections along the case.

      To Use
      Once you have your suitcase packed, then you connect the strap, there are points for it to go through which generally sit on the side and the top of the case.
      I did not find any real flexibility on these straps, and that once on, there was no real room for adjustment.

      Quality
      In all honestly I did not find the strap to be of very good quality, once you pulled it across the suitcase the stitching was starting to come apart. I would be concerned that after a couple of uses that the stitching would give way.

      Locks
      I found it difficult to use the padlock on the zip in the position I normally use it s its hidden away and less chance of getting caught up in the tour of the airport journey, I would have liked to see an inbuilt combination lock built into the strap.

      Would I buy again
      No, I would not buy again, after using them for the one holiday I ended up binning the straps, I was disappointed, the only suitcase they fitted properly was the trolley case, but as we use that for hand luggage, it rather defeats the object.
