    Possible Repair Maybe ???

    I recently attended Quakecon 2003 in dallas Texas.
    and while i was over there i purchased a C3 Clear case.
    which i love to bits,and you can no longer buy them here,as
    Tocs has gone now and they were the main seller over here
    anyway..
    I packed it in a solid case around my clothes to bring it back
    only to find when i got home and opend the suit case,there
    lied my Smashed Clear case..
    American Airlines wont do nothing about it
    and neither will my travel insurance

    is there anyway i can repair this







    Dont travel with AA i have traveld alot and they have been
    the worse airline i have ever flown with..
    i wont go into all the other problems we had

    that really sucks mate

    the only thing i can think of is to use piece of clear acrylic to bolt the 2 sections together, ie. get a square piece of acrylic, place it inside the case over the join and then drill a couple of holes on each side of the join and put some screws though, i'm not sure how effective that would be though.

    what about some kind of clear plastic glue? the break looks fairly clean, and the plastic looks quite thick, so some kind of super / plastic glue should do the trick. try going to a crafts shop to see if they've got some... or perhaps B&Q ?

    You might be able to use epoxy to put it back together.. Generally throwers will completely ignore 'Fragile' labels. Whats travel insurance for if it doesn't cover your luggage?

    Unless they told you about the transit issue over the phone, then its reasonable to assume that was included.
    Make a big issue that you phone and asked about it (did you mention that you were taking it on a plane ?, if you did that would make there excuse invalid as you told them the conditions that you wanted to know there policy under).

    unfortunately over the phone and in writing are two very different things.

    its international cover (USA)
    so inless my suite case was waterproof and im a bloody good
    swimmer ,then they probley know i was going via air craft

    i dont think TESCO want any bad publicity from this.
    plus...i used the customer service desk phone.
    the lady behind the counter phoned them for me
    at the actual store
