You know how there's always one thing that you forget or that goes wrong for every trip? Well this morning when i was finally zipping up my ship-through bag i realized i had no idea where the luggage lock was. It should have still been hooked on one of the zipper ends from last time, but it wasn't there. And a quick check of all the places where it seemed reasonable it might have fallen off or been put absentmindedly turned up nothing.

Anyone have any suggestions about where to buy a new TSA approved luggage lock? =P Hopefully if all else fails i can pick one up at the airport (presumably at some huge mark-up.)

Edit: Yay! I managed to find one at Target over lunch! Actually i found several different types at Target, but i only bought one :)

I do not know myself, but I'd be tempted to say Target or Walmart. If all else fails, maybe even REI.

Maybe TSA stole your lock the last time you traveled. They've been known to go through people's luggage and steal stuff (laptops, XBoxes, etc).

Target was a good suggestion :)

I know TSA didn't steal the lock last time because they did search it, and i spent awhile looking at the lock trying to figure out how to reset the "this lock has been opened with the master key" indicator. Presumably i then failed to put it back on the bag after i was done looking at it =P
