Default Luggage Locators

I was in Marshalls today, and saw these luggage locators that look like little remote controls....get to the terrminal after the cruise, and beep for your luggage....!! Sounds like a great idea, but....Has anyone used them, and your thoughts? Can you imagine, if any people had them, and, we all "clicked" at the same time? lol.......

Sounds like a very good idea. Saves to search all the bags for yours . This true especially if they don't sort the bags properly by color.

Haven't heard of it. Sounds like a very interesting idea though.

Sounds interesting, but I wonder how durable they are?

I've seen too many suitcases missing wheels, handles, etc....

Now to locate a pet and/or child ??? Or a car? Hmmmm....[/url]

With the way security is these days, I can only imagine what would happen if luggage just started beeping. Could create some panic at the airport.

Well....I am going to try them..I will get 2, and use them at the end of our cruise in Oct.....I'll see if they are still at Marshalls this weekend. The video would not work for the regular locator, just for the "pro" one, and, I wonder what the diff is...I could use those plastic ties, if these don't have a strong enough wire holder.....we shall see...

The Pro seems to let you use 1 transmitter for multiple receivers - if you are going to have to locate more than one bag.

Otherwise it seems one transmitter for each bag.
