Whilst we dont recommend trying this on your own Hiscox case as a party trick it will be reassuring to know that your case is made to this standard.
We have also found that the shape of these cases is such that they dont tend to get caught on steps when walking up and down stairs and aren't as likely to hurt (as much as most other cases) should you walk into someone whilst carrying one.
As they're easy to handle it also means that baggage handlers wont have such a hard time with them if travelling internationally.
The cases are robust and have strong fittings that are unlikely to break
And should you ever have a problem with the catches etcHiscox do have a lifetime warranty that they stand by and will replace any hinges or catches that break
We cant think of any reason why not to use them- except for guitars that won't fit their shape
