Having read in another thread about somebody losing two Leatherman 'Wave's at airport security, got me wondering.
Why don't they have a location near the security position where you can buy an envelope (padded in necessary), which could be priced high to cover admin costs, and stamps and post your valuable (exclude nail clippers etc) possession (eg a Leatherman Wave) back to your house?
The only downside I can see is that people would probably be more likely to not check their luggage on the grounds that :
a) it might not be spotted so it goes with them, and
b) if it is spotted they get a chance to get it back.
Do you think it would be a good idea to have that 'post home' facility?
