Why Travelers Must Use Travel Sentry Approved Luggage Locks for Air Travel

March 12, 2016 Gadgets No Comments Print Print Email Email

All luggage worldwide is screened at airports after check-in before they are loaded on to airplanes.With increasing threats from terrorists and heightened security globally, more bags have to be opened by security officers without the traveler being present.

If a suitcase is locked and does not carry the TSA accepted red diamond logo, the security officer will be forced to break the lock or cut it open to look inside. The bag is then completely insecure when it arrives at the destination airport and is much more liable to having items stolen on the baggage claim belt and in transit to the final destination.

Luggage that is secured with Travel Sentry Approved locks can be opened by officers with a master key much faster. What is more, once the bag has been inspected, they often a note inside the bag to say that it has been opened and inspected and they will then re-secure the lock.

These bags are then safe when they arrive at the other side for collection or onward transfer.

There are over 250 million Travel Sentry Approved locks in circulation and the Travel Sentry Scheme is now recognised in most major countries.

Every year over 25 million bags are mishandled or lost so keeping the contents secure is an increasing priority.
