Checkpoint security

Placing valuables into the open plastic container at airport x-ray checkpoints certainly is a concern (Nov. ’04, pg. 18 & Feb. ’05, pg. 83). However, there is a solution, if security would only go along with it.

I was returning some time ago from Mexico and noticed that instead of using the open plastic containers, they used clear plastic storage containers with lids. So once the items were placed in the container, one could feel reasonably safe that no one would reach in and help themselves.
