If you are travelling to USA, make sure your suitcase is not locked with normal locks. Since the 9/11 attack, USA’s homeland security regulations do not recommend travellers to pass through USA with a locked suitcase. If you locked your suitcase with a normal lock, the suitcase may be forced open for inspection and induced unnecessary damage.
However, if you want to lock your suitcase, you may choose to use a TSA lock. The Transport Security Administration designed a Travel Security Approved lock. So that when your suitcase is passing through USA’s homeland security inspection, they may open your suitcase with a special key thus wise rule out the need of breaking your suitcase or lock.
Smart Tip: The Firelite suitcase collection that you may rent from SuitcaseNow has a TSA lock. You may also rent a separate TSA lock after renting a suitcase from SuitcaseNow.
