TSA Locks suitcases distinguish the good from the bad. In the same way that there are brakes and ABS, there are “combination locks” and “TSA combination locks.”
These locks lock but do not bring a key. Why?
Because only a customs broker authorized official U.S. or UK have a master key that opens. In case they need to open up a bag and you are not present, you will never break the luggage, you open it without damaging it. His system was specially developed by the American TSA (Transportation Security Administration), an agency created after the attacks of 11 S that ensures the safety in airports and transportation there. Also recognized in the UK by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. Only an officer of these agencies can open these padlocks with master key without having to cut the lock or break the case, something that often happens in customs inspections at airports.
