How to open the TSA lock

Before we provide instructions for opening the TSA lock on LEVEL8 suitcases, let’s learn more about what the TSA lock is and why you need it.

What is a TSA Lock?

The full name of a TSA lock is a Travel Sentry® Approved Lock, which was created in 2003. Using Travel Sentry® Approved locks allows security authorities to unlock and inspect your luggage during a security screening, without damage.

Q: What does a TSA lock look like?

There are different styles of TSA locks, such as TSA cable locks, TSA 4-dial locks, TSA lock with key, etc. It’s easy to identify a TSA lock due to its clear and special logo in a red diamond shape. When you see this logo, you can be confident you’re using a TSA lock.

Q: Is it necessary to have TSA lock when I fly?

No, a TSA lock is not a must when you fly with a bag or suitcase. If security censors your bag or luggage, they have rights to cut off your non-approved TSA lock. Therefore, by using a TSA lock, you could protect your suitcase from getting damaged during a security check.
