We all like to think our luggage is safe when we travel. In the past those who wanted the extra security of a lock faced the risk that their lock might be cut off if security feels the need to physically inspect a bag. With TSA recognized baggage locks, however, that is a thing of the past.
While each bag to go on a plane is inspected electronically, sometimes it is necessary to inspect a bag physically. With the TSA luggage lock, all that is needed is the insertion of the master key by the TSA security official. When the TSA lock is opened, the lock changes from green to red, letting you know that the luggage has been opened. A personal combination code is used to change the window back to green.
The TSA agent who searches your luggage should leave a notification on your luggage, letting you know it has been searched. If the lock security window is red but no official Notification of Baggage Inspection is on your bag, you should examine the contents of your luggage and let the officers at baggage services know if something is missing.
The added security of lock and alert feature should, however, discourage any unauthorized individuals from taking items from your bag, as it becomes easier for the person stealing something to be traced. With your TSA luggage lock, you can travel in the comfort of knowing that your luggage is safe.
