David, They may have been required on the CES, but once on active service, I believe the keys and padlocks would have been quickly "lost", for the reasons you have stated. If you look at Carriers as an example, how many are carrying a full set of tools on the tool board. The use of the straps and brackets fitted originally were a "one time" use because they were too difficult to use. There was a big difference between "the planning" and "the practice" in my opinion.
