What is a TSA LOCK?

A TSA lock is a lock accepted by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as well as other security agencies worldwide. There are only two companies with the rights to create TSA locks, Travel Sentry is one them.

How Does a TSA Lock Work?

A TSA Lock allows the authorities to inspect luggage for security reasons, such as dangerous items, without breaking the lock. This means your luggage and its belongings will remain safe and secure throughout your travelling experience and your luggage will remain damage-free.

The Benefits to Travellers

There are a range of benefits for travellers using a TSA lock (Travel Sentry® Approved Lock):

Security Compliance:

TSA accepted locks comply with the security regulations set by the Transportation Security Administration. This is important for air travel, as TSA agents have the authority to inspect luggage for security purposes. If you use a non-TSA lock on your luggage, TSA security agents may need to break it to access your bags, potentially causing damage.

TSA Access

TSA accepted locks have a special feature that allows TSA agents to open and relock the lock without causing damage. This ensures that if your luggage requires inspecting, there is no need to destroy the lock.


Using a Travel Sentry Approved lock provides convenience for both travellers and security personnel. It streamlines the inspection process, allowing TSA agents to quickly check the contents of the luggage. Travellers can use these locks without worrying about potential damage during security checks.

Peace of Mind

Travellers can have peace of mind knowing that they won’t arrive at their destination to find a broken lock. Using a lock that the TSA can open and relock provides an added layer of security and reassurance.

Wide Availability

TSA-accepted locks are widely available, and many luggage manufacturers incorporate them into their designs. This makes it easy for travellers to find suitable locks that meet TSA standards, ensuring a smooth travel experience.

How do I know if my padlock is a Travel Sentry TSA lock?

Simply look for the ‘Red Diamond’. Travel Sentry® Approved locks feature a red diamond which symbolises its acceptance by TSA and other security agencies around the world.
