Is it a crime to padlock someone's belongings?

Examples: locking someones backpack/suitcase zippers together, thus impossible to open adding an extra lock to someones bike at a bike rack so they can't unlock their bike etc. is it illegal?  or just extremely annoying/inconvenient to the recipient?

Securing a Car Door

I have a car with a mechanical door lock that is broken. Hence I cannot lock the car door (drivers side). I tried to stick a couple of staples (from hasp and staples) using superglue to the door and body work with the idea of putting a padlock through both. To my surprise the superglue would not stick. Has anyone any idea how I can secure the door while the lock is broken. Thanks

Steamer Trunk Lock

 I bought a footlocker, but just can't figure out how the included lock works. I'll be using my own padlock, but it would be nice to have the built in one working, too.  The cylinder appears to be plastic, and the black tab above it unlatches the lock when pushed down. I can turn the key freely over and over, but it just never locks. Is anybody familiar with this type of lock that could offer some assistance? Thanks!
