    We are off to France in mid June and are concerned that our back box ( Fiamma ) has only two very flimsy easily opened locks. We have been looking at various locking straps but to date have been unable to find anything that is lockable. We have seen straps that are lockable but are easily slipped off, and the straps can be, again easily, be cut through.
    Any suggestions ideas / please?

    If you put chains on the box and a good padlock that's about as good as it gets:)

    You could put a cheap battery powered PIR alarm inside with a remote.

    Probably be able to one for about £15 off Ebay.

    Might deter and would certainly warn you if you were sleeping

    For peace of mind I would go with some sort of hasp and padlock, there are lots of decent looking ones about.
