We don’t generally send out this kind of information. However, this might be helpful practical advice to alert our Mountaineers, many of which regularly travel. The YouTube video linked below alerts you to a method, which potentially makes it very easy to break into your hotel room. The advice: Put the lock chain while you are in the room. And, take your valuables with you when you leave the room.
As one comment to the story states, “the media has hereby managed to alert hotel guests to the problem while at the same time educating thieves who did not know about this break and enter method. Six of one – half a dozen of another!”
