Locking the old-style Western Flyer (with cord pulls, not zipper taps)
I bought my Western Flyer a few months ago, just before the current model was released. I plan to take it - and it only - on a six week trip to Europe. Wish me luck!
I did some pretty careful research before buying it, but still didn't realise that at that time it came with cord pulls rather than metal zipper tabs. I bought a lock with a thin cable (this one:http://www.paddypallin.com.au/defaul...=641&Group=408) which I thought would fit through the two sliders (or whatever one calls the bits to which the cord pull is attached), but it is just slightly too large to fit. Plastic cable ties would probably fit and would provide a modicum of security, but I'd prefer to use something that can't be cut quite so easily.
So my question is: has anyone found an effective way of locking the Western Flyer, or any of the other Tom Bihn bags which come with cord pulls, which they could share with me?
Many thanks for any suggestions.
