Years ago I had a sheriff friend do a security check of my house. I was mostly interested in how best the secure basic access to the house and quite frankly he pointed out short of living in a solid concrete house with no windows or doors there was no absolute burglary proof home. As an aside he saw my small safe and said ďThatís nice. You put all your valuables in one place for them to carry out. ď
While I have never carried a lockbox like he's talking about I have brought (checked, I doubt they would carry on) some Pac-Safe anti-theft things. They're basically a wire mesh sack (small things can go through them, they're more for locking up bigger things) but the key aspect of it is that there's a loop of the cable also--the intention is that you hook the cable over something (say, a bed frame) that will keep someone from just walking off with it. (I intended it for when we were sleeping on a train, or going out to eat when I wouldn't be carrying my DSLR. Plans got majorly changed, I never actually used them that trip.)
