reader-tip-720x360Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Karol H., who says:

“My flight attendant friends (while on layovers in Japan hotels) say they do not put the extra door lock latch over the door lock in case of an earthquake. If the door frame shifts, they may not be able to open the door.”

In Japan an many other places, earthquake safety is no joke. Thanks, Karol!

    In an earthquake, if the door frame shifts and ANY lock is used, do you expect to open the door?

      Good point, especially those safety doors with 2 or 3 locks along the frame…
