WHAT IS A TSA LOCK?


A TSA LOCK is a global security system which allows passengers to lock their luggage, while permitting security authorities to inspect them without damage.


A TSA Approved Lock is any lock that has the Travel Sentry logo (Red Diamond) on it.Travel Sentry was created in 2003 and is the group in charge of overseeing the creation and approval of luggage locks that can be opened by aviation security agencies like the TSA.


The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, was the first security agency to use the system.
