TSA-Approved Locks: Your Go-To Choice to Protect Your Luggage
As we have mentioned above, the TSA is allowed to employ any mean to verify the contents of a bag or suitcase, including breaking the lock.
To get past this inconvenience, lock manufacturers and the TSA worked together to create the TSA LOCK technology. These TSA-approved locks can be opened by a master key. This key is available in all American airports and many other countries (like Canada, some European countries, and South Korea).
To know if your lock is TSA-approved, look for the red Diamond, the Travel Sentry Approved mark.
Here are some of the types of luggage locks you can find:
- Cable locks
- Card locks
- Combination locks
- Key locks
