Last night when I went to pack my rods into my Plano Jumbo Airliner case - I noticed that TSA had removed the pin that sets the length of the case So, what we did as a temporary fix (since I called Continental and they said I had to file a complaint at IAH with the baggage dept) was to put a zip tie through the hole and just somehow try to figure out another fix once I got back to Houston. Well, after approx 16 hours, I finally got in to Houston (another story) only to find TSA had cut the zip tie . So more or less this means the case isn't at a set length, and the rods could easily be crushed. Luckily, none were upon quick inspection, though I still need to carefully look at them. I am going to call TSA tomorrow and complain and ask what I SHOULD do since apparently this didn't work. I just wanted to let everyone know so definitely watch out next time. Once I talk to TSA tomorrow I will let everyone know. This wasn't an international flight or anything - just Houston and Philly and back.
