TSA and Luggage

Do not lock your baggage due to Transportation Security Administration screening of every checked bag
Place your name and address on the inside as well as the outside of your baggage
Carry valuable items such as electronic equipment, cameras, film, cash and jewelry with you on board the aircraft
Carry necessary items such as medication, prescriptions and keys with you on board the aircraft
Claim your baggage immediately upon arrival
Although we recommend that you do not lock your baggage due to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening of every checked bag, there are now locks available at retail outlets which can be used to secure your luggage without creating the need to break the lock or damage your bag.
Look for locks that identify the use of a “TSA-recognized locking mechanism.” Only locks that state this use of a TSA-recognized locking mechanism are recommended for use in locking your baggage.
