Default How to Cut Cable Ties ...

In one particularly flaky moment, I packed all implements of destruction into a bag that I then closed with a cable tie.

What to do?

Ask your cabin steward or a friendly bartender for a corkscrew. They have small (incredibly dull) knives attached, but they DO work.

Hi Pamda
How about enclosing a small nailfile in one of the outside pockets that have only one zipper.

Has to be a really desparate thief who is going to put their hand in to a deep pocket and bring out a nailfile

Pam,

When I couldnt stand watching any more cable news after this week, I just turned off the TV and yanked the cable from the wall......no need to pack the TV up.
