How to Reset Your TSA Lock in 4 Steps

What is a TSA lock?

TSA Lock is a global luggage lock security system developed by the Transportation Security Administration (Abbre. TSA) of the USA. The system allows security authorities to inspect passenger luggage and other shipped packages to ensure safety during transportation.

Why is it so important to have a TSA lock?

If your luggage permits the use of an additional lock, it's crucial to select one that holds TSA approval. This ensures that airport security can safely unlock and inspect your luggage when necessary, verify any required information, and then re-secure the lock without causing any damage. The same principle applies to integrated locks, as they typically carry TSA approval.

Whether you've acquired a new piece of luggage or an external TSA lock, programming it for use at home is typically a straightforward process. Most of Joyway Luggage comes with internal TSA lock to protect your luggage.
