Why Use TSA Locks with Your Custom Case?

If your custom case ever needs to be inspected by TSA, a TSA-approved lock will be a real time saver and make sure your lock isn’t cut.

Why choose a custom case with TSA locks over one without? Well, when you board a flight to the U.S, your baggage is checked before and during transit. If you change flights between your origin point and destination internationally, baggage from that previous carrier may need to be rechecked before it is transferred to a corresponding connecting flight with yours. Airports handle thousands and thousands of bags and transit cases every hour of the day and night, and if your baggage is lost in transit, you may receive it after you arrive, or possibly not at all.  

The Trouble With Non-TSA Approved Locks  

If your suitcase has a non-TSA approved lock, this will not stop the agents from inspecting it. Every bag which is transported by air must be inspected. Your lock will be viewed as a nuisance and cut or broken. Your suitcase or custom case will then be left unlocked and unprotected during transit.   

The Benefits of TSA Approved Locks

TSA officers will recognize the TSA logo on the luggage lock. Inspectors have special keys and combination numbers which will allow them universal access to all appropriate locks. They will be able to look at your baggage and then relock it safely without hindering the safety of your custom case. If you do not have an approved lock, you might as well leave your case unlocked, as TSA agents will break the lock anyway. If you are wondering where you can purchase a correct TSA approved lock, they are actually quite easy to come by. They are available on Amazon.
