 1. Field of the Invention
 The present invention relates generally to luggage and more specifically it relates to a luggage security system for preventing luggage items from being stolen or lost during travel.
 2. Description of the Prior Art
 Luggage devices have been in use for years and are typically comprised of suitcases, purses, briefcases, computer cases, and various other storage devices commonly utilized while traveling. Conventional luggage may typically be “locked” to prevent an unauthorized third-party from opening the luggage. However, between destinations, individuals must typically transport their luggage from one location to another thereby exposing them to the risk of theft or loss.
 Conventional luggage does not provide a system for securely preventing the theft or loss of the luggage during manual transportation thereof by the user. Conventional luggage is highly susceptible to theft while an individual is physically transporting the luggage.
 While these devices may be suitable for the particular purpose to which they address, they are not as suitable for preventing luggage items from being stolen during travel. Conventional luggage does not provide a suitable security system for preventing the theft or loss of luggage during physical transportation thereof.
 In these respects, the luggage security system according to the present invention substantially departs from the conventional concepts and designs of the prior art, and in so doing provides an apparatus primarily developed for the purpose of preventing luggage items from being stolen during travel.
 In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known types of luggage now present in the prior art, the present invention provides a new luggage security system construction wherein the same can be utilized for preventing luggage items from being stolen during travel.
 The general purpose of the present invention, which will be described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide a new luggage security system that has many of the advantages of the luggage devices mentioned heretofore and many novel features that result in a new luggage security system which is not anticipated, rendered obvious, suggested, or even implied by any of the prior art luggage systems, either alone or in any combination thereof.
 To attain this, the present invention generally comprises a flexible structure, a first connector attached to a first end of the elongate member, a lock device for securing the first connector to a first loop member on a piece of luggage, a second connector attached to a second end of the elongate member, a handle member attached to the second connector, and a clasp attached to the second end of the elongate member for selectively securing to a second loop member on the luggage.
 There has thus been outlined, rather broadly, the more important features of the invention in order that the detailed description thereof may be better understood, and in order that the present contribution to the art may be better appreciated. There are additional features of the invention that will be described hereinafter and that will form the subject matter of the claims appended hereto.
 In this respect, before explaining at least one embodiment of the invention in detail, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited in its application to the details of construction and to the arrangements of the components set forth in the following description or illustrated in the drawings. The invention is capable of other embodiments and of being practiced and carried out in various ways. Also, it is to be understood that the phraseology and terminology employed herein are for the purpose of the description and should not be regarded as limiting.
 A primary object of the present invention is to provide a luggage security system that will overcome the shortcomings of the prior art devices.
 A second object is to provide a luggage security system for preventing luggage items from being stolen or lost during travel.
 Another object is to provide a luggage security system that is lightweight, durable and compact in structure.
 A further object is to provide a luggage security system that allows a user to perform a task without having to closely monitor their personal article.
 Another object is to provide a luggage security system that is comfortable and easy to utilize for an individual transporting luggage.
 An additional object is to provide a luggage security system that that may be easily stored in a compact location when not in use.
 Another object is to provide a luggage security system that secures various personal articles such as but not limited to luggage, briefcases, bags and the like.
 Other objects and advantages of the present invention will become obvious to the reader and it is intended that these objects and advantages are within the scope of the present invention.
 To the accomplishment of the above and related objects, this invention may be embodied in the form illustrated in the accompanying drawings, attention being called to the fact, however, that the drawings are illustrative only, and that changes may be made in the specific construction illustrated and described within the scope of the appended claims.
 Various other objects, features and attendant advantages of the present invention will become fully appreciated as the same becomes better understood when considered in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which like reference characters designate the same or similar parts throughout the several views, and wherein:
 Turning now descriptively to the drawings, in which similar reference characters denote similar elements throughout the several views,

 As to a further discussion of the manner of usage and operation of the present invention, the same should be apparent from the above description. Accordingly, no further discussion relating to the manner of usage and operation will be provided.
 With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to include variations in size, materials, shape, form, function and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed to be within the expertise of those skilled in the art, and all equivalent structural variations and relationships to those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are intended to be encompassed by the present invention.
 Therefore, the foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention.
