When you go on a trip, it is reasonable to want to lock your luggage. Before you send checked baggage through, you will need to make sure the lock is approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). In the United States, federal law requires that the TSA have access to your luggage. TSA screens luggage and must have the ability to open and inspect it. If you do not have a TSA approved lock, the officers will have to cut off the lock. If that is not possible, they may have to enter your bag in another way, which could permanently damage it. TSA is not responsible for those damages. A TSA approved lock works with a master key system, which allows the TSA officer to use a master key to access the lock without having to break your lock or damage your luggage.
