Check in your luggage with confidence next time you fly. The next time you fly use a TSA approved Combination lock to safely lock your luggage. Airline check in personnel and the TSA have been trained to recognize locks with the Travel Sentry mark and know that your luggage can remain locked during check in. If an inspection is necessary during screening, TSA personnel will use a Travel Sentry secured access device to open and relock your luggage.
TSA compliant Luggage 3-dial Lock has a search alert indicator. The TSA Search Indicator is present to Green at the factory. Lock will turn from Green to Red if the lock is opened by the TSA. If your TSA Search Indicator is Red when you receive your luggage back, immediately inspect bag for the TSA Notification of Baggage Inspection. If none is found take your luggage to your airlines' baggage claim office to determine if anything is missing or if anything has been added to your luggage.

2) Turn the shackle 180 degrees (1/2 turn) and push the shackle in resetting the search indicator to Green
