What is TSA Lock ?
TSA Lock is a global security system which allows passengers to lock their luggage, while permitting security authorities to inspect them without damage. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, was the first security agency to use the system.
