You can order from America’s leading source of travel supplies online at www.magellans.com or call 800 962-4943. Here are several smart suggestions, which we found indispensable for the savvy traveler. Always specify your choice of color for each item.
Neon Luggage Tags (LA321). What’s different about these is that only your name shows through the window. The rest of the information on the tag – address and phone number – are hidden inside the tag. Choose from green, orange and yellow, at $6.85 a pair.
Easy Spot Handle Wraps (LA185). Here’s an alternative to the traditional name tags. Your business card or nametag is enclosed within this nylon wrap, which is fastened around any handle with velcro. Print your name on it with any permanent marker, and you will easily spot your bag on the luggage carousel. Use it on backpacks, laptops, briefcases, camera cases and other possessions. Comes in neon green, neon yellow and neon pink, three in a pack at $14.95.
3-Dial Locking Strap (LA320). Now that you have your bags well identified, you can use this multicolored belt to tie around the bag. It ties securely with a three-dial combination lock. Once it’s locked, no one can loosen it or pull it off the end of your bag. The strap adjusts from 40 to 70 inches and comes in rainbow, green, stripe, red or black, at $12.85.
Neon Combo Lock (SL400). These small reliable combination locks come in bright neon colors that make your luggage stand out when you’re looking up and down the carousel. Available in pink, green or orange, at $9.85 a pair.
Cable Lock (SL624). What do you when you have to put you bags down when you’re looking around the duty-free shop? If you want your bags to still be there, lock them together. Or secure them to the metal rack in your train compartment. In any situation, you need this adjustable length cable lock, with maximum length of 42 inches, at $14.85.
PrivaSeals (SL626A). An alternate way to keep your luggage securely closed. Snap this tiny PrivaSeal on your zippered bag, and no one can open it without breaking the seal. Individually numbered. Packaged one dozen to a reclosable pouch, $4.85.
Security Alarm (SP608). You need this if you find yourself in an unfamiliar area or out late at night. Pull the grenade-style pin and a shrill blast will startle any assailant. The alarm will call help. You can hang it on a door or window and use it the same way. $9.85. [ Back to Top ]
