Not limited to instruments warning: if you are traveling in the US, do not lock your bags! The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) people will bust the lock off. In fact, I think that their "random selection" of bags to search picks out the locked bags first! They do tell you that locks are fair game, unless they are TSA-approved locks for which they have a pass-key, but they don't go out of their way with the warning.
