It's happened before, you get your luggage back at the baggage claim and the locks have all been cut, hacked off and properly mangled beyond repair, leaving you out a pair of properly good luggage locks and rooting through your things to make sure nothings been stolen.
With SearchAlert TSA Luggage Locks your days of sawed off luggage locks at the airport are over. This is the first mechanical lock that lets you know your luggage was inspected at the airport, and not just by TSA in America, but HMCE in the United Kingdom as well. And unlike lesser quality locks, these are made with a rugged metal alloy, ensuring durable security.
Here's how it works:
Designed with a security feature which allows TSA security agents (using a secured access device) to open the SearchAlert lock and inspect your luggage without destroying locks. How you can tell is the indicator light at the base of the lock. When the indicator is green, your luggage was not inspected, when it's red, your luggage was hand searched by the TSA.
