Bought new luggage and it came with the TSA-approved universal locks
I bought some new luggage ahead of my vacation this Summer and noticed something odd. On the luggage there was the normal combination lock and beside it a keyhole, but no keys were provided. After some reading I discovered the keys were in the hands of the TSA!

TSA-accepted Locks

A TSA-accepted luggage lock allows baggage screeners and security agents to open your suitcase for inspection using a universal master key. A number of manufacturers produce TSA-accepted locks, and they're sold under different brand names. The TSA requires the packaging to clearly state that the lock is accepted and recognized by the agency and may be opened by a TSA master key. When shopping for a TSA-accepted lock, look for the Travel Sentry or Safe Skies logo on the packaging. The Travel Sentry logo is a red diamond, and the Safe Skies mark is a red torch.

This is great, they can now steal your ipad without cutting into your luggage.

convicted TSA security officer says he was part of a "culture" of indifference that allowed corrupt employees to prey on passengers' luggage and personal belongings with impunity, thanks to lax oversight and tip-offs from TSA colleagues.

"It was very commonplace, very," said Pythias Brown, a former TSA officer at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey who admits he stole more than $800,000 worth of items from luggage and security checkpoints over a four-year period.

"It was very convenient to steal," he said


Now, even more convenient!

The higher powers will do anything to keep us little people down. Always stepping on our necks! What people fail to realize is that together we have the power to over throw these people Elites or the Bilderberg group that controls the worlds economy, but no that won't happen because the general population of children are influenced and manipulated by social media via twitter, Facebook, and rap music videos popular trending on YouTube. Its really the parents fault but most of the sheeple for letting the country change the way that it has.

Great. Spend extra cash to buy luggage with a lock to which the only key is owned by a felon working for TSA.

Super idea.

Re: Bought new luggage and it came with the TSA-approved universal locks
they've been doing this for years. if they suspect something they have the right to look in ur luggage and if u dont have a tsa lock they will just snap the one u have to look inside. if u have a tsa lock then they can use their key which fits all tsa locks and look inside without breaking ur lock. sucks.

What I do- particularly when traveling internationally is close the zipper with colored zip ties. This way, if customs decides to unlock my suitcase, they just cut the zip tie instead of breaking the lock (which can break the luggage). They re-attach them with zip ties (white or clear), so, because I use green or orange, I will know that they have been opened, and can closely inspect to make sure nothing is missing from that piece of luggage.
