MalbikEndar wrotePutting something into a locked box locked to a pipe...that pretty much screams "I am really valuable."
The vast majority of hotel room thefts are opportunistic. Locking something to a pipe is going to prevent that and make it much more difficult to take without the use of knives/bolt cutters. It's not like they won't check/take your bags if they are loose in your room is it ? They are there to do just that and if they are that determined (knives/bolt cutters) they are going to get it anyway.
As said, there are usually small safes in rooms in S.E and N.E Asia, good for a body and a few smallish lenses. Using them & the cable on the bag I have never had anything stolen.
