from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
Pickpocketing happens everywhere. Many times, it occurs because people aren't careful enough with their valuables. Men's wallets are especially vulnerable. Follow these steps to keep your wallet safe.
- Buy a short length of link chain, two feet long at most, strong and not so long you look like a teen gangster, and not so long you could die if it gets caught on something.
- Secure it to your belt in a hole you punch, or put it on a round ring and then secure it.
- Secure it to your wallet by punching a hole in the wallet, or by buying a new wallet with a hole punched already (or even the whole chain thing included), or pay someone to make a magnificent new one for you.
- Wear it and feel secure that no one's grabbing your wallet when it's attached to you with a chain.
- When buying the short length of link chain, make sure it is strong enough but not so thick and high weight, which may feel uncomfortable.
- Rule of thumb: If your chain swings a lot, it's too long. The longer it is, the better chance of it getting caught somewhere.
- Careful when you are passing a metal detector or any other secure place, where you chain will hit the alarm button.
