    Handcuffs? Handcuffs..?
    Are you serious?

    It's trivial to open them *without* a key (if you are not wearing them ofc).

    When I saw Michael first mention security as a selection criteria I laughed and thought something like "security ? not without a pair of handcuffs at least...".

    Way ahead of me.

    I had actually been picturing the laptop case handcuffed to your wrist, but I guess a hotel room table leg is close enough

    It's more of a deterrent than anything, to prevent a quick snatch-and-grab or whatever. I've also been thinking about using a reliable bicycle lock or something in the future - to also avoid airport issues...

    Being discrete i think is a better measure against theft. And this suitcase is not so "stealth". But on the plus side you can always mess with the security people when asked about the handcufs.

    "I am into kinky sex" would be my answer

    Default Is 3 digits secure?

    Is 3 digits secure?

    Would be pretty cool if you unlocked it with a smartphone over NFC with cryptography.

    Umm pretty sure that lock is mechanical thus immune to NFC vulnerabilities

    But 3 digits is little. I could do a brute-force attack on that. Just do trial-and-error, it shouldn't take too long.

    So true. Even if it took you 3 seconds to try each combination (which is a gross over estimate), it would take ~50 minutes to try ALL of the combinations. It would typically take half that time to get the right combination and less than 3 seconds. So you'd be looking at <20 minutes to crack the case.

    But as Michael said, it's mostly used as a deterrent and to avoid snatch and runs.
