Sesamee SearchAlert® TSA Accepted Locks

TSA Accepted Locks Come with a Pewter or Nickel Finish and 4-Dials Give You up to 1,000 Different Combinations

The only TSA accepted locks that let you know when your TSA locks have been opened with the patented Security Window Alert System.

The SearchAlert® Security window changes color from GREEN to RED when the TSA secured access device is used to open the lock or when an unauthorized person has opened the lock using a counterfeit opening device.

Ever wonder during your travel if someone had opened your luggage without putting in a slip of paper to alert you? Now you can have the peace of mind of knowing for sure if someone has been in your bag or not with the Security Window!


• Airport Luggage & Case Security
• TSA Accepted
• TSA Recognized
• Opened Lock Warning
• Patented Security Window Prevents
Surreptitious Entry
• Red Window = Lock Opened
• Green Window = Lock Not Opened
• 10,000 Re-settable Combinations
• Regular and Heavy Duty Shackles

This combination lock is set at the factory to open at all 0's when aligned between the arrows. You can either leave it at this setting and always open the lock at all 0's or you can set your own combination in the following manner:

  1. Open the lock by turning the dials to present combination and pull shackle out.
  2. Turn shackle halfway around (180 degrees) in either direction and push in as far as possible. 
  3. Hold shackle depressed and turn it 90 degrees (quarter turn) in either direction. Leave the shackle in this position while you change the code to your personal combination.
  4. After turning the dials to the new desired combination, record the numbers someplace for easy reference (in case you forget the combination!!)
  5. Without disturbing the dials, return the shackle a quarter way around (90 degrees). Pull out the shackle and turn pulled out shackle half way around (180 degrees) and push in . Turn dials to any number to lock. Your lock will now open at your own personal combination. If you want to change to a new combination, simply repeat steps 1-5 (starting on your new combination for the shackle instead of the factory default).


Security Window Operating Instructions

If a secured access device was used to open your SearchAlert lock, the color of the Security Window would change from Green to Red. To reset the window to Green see below:

1. Set dials to correct combination and pull up shackle
2. Turn shackle halfway around (180 degrees) and push down. The security window should change color back to Green.
3. Pull up shackle and the SearchAlert is ready for use.



What is a Travel Sentry Certified Lock?
Travel Sentry Certified Locks have been developed through unprecedented cooperation between luggage, lock and travel accessory manufacturers, retailers, and the TSA. Travel Sentry Certified locks are sturdy, die-cast combination devices that carry the red and white diamond-shaped Travel Sentry logo and a special TSA code on the bottom.

How are Travel Sentry Certified locks different from other luggage locks?
Only Travel Sentry Certified locks allow airline passengers once again to lock their bags with confidence. Before now, travelers either had to leave their bags unlocked or lock them and risk the locks being broken by TSA screeners if the bags need to be inspected. Because the TSA recognizes and uses the Travel Sentry locking system, its screeners can, through a secure procedure, unlock Travel Sentry Certified locks if bags need to be inspected. TSA screeners must cut off all other types of luggage locks if they need to inspect bags.

How do I know that the Travel Sentry system is secure?
The TSA strictly controls the distribution of the special codes and tools used to open Travel Sentry Certified locks. Only qualified personnel with the TSA will have access to these tools.

What about the airline check-in people, who always tell me to leave my checked bags unlocked?
Airline check-in personnel are being briefed and trained to recognize Travel Sentry Certified locks and to understand that those bags may remain locked as they go through the screening process.

What happens if I use a Travel Sentry Certified lock and it’s cut off when I travel?
The TSA has been fully trained to recognize and use the Travel Sentry Certified locks. However, if a Travel Sentry Certified lock is broken during travel, simply return the lock to us and we will replace it free of charge. We ask that customers provide your receipt, the Travel Sentry Certified lock that was broken, along with the TSA Notification of Baggage Inspection, and let us know in which airport the bag was checked (and screened) so that we may notify the TSA.

    Sesamee SearchAlert 4-dial TSA Lock - K8470

    Posted by John on May 19th 2019

    This is my second order of these locks from The first order of 4 locks revealed to me these locks were very well made and have served us well, with no issues.

    Several times the TSA agents have opened the locks, and each time the indicator showed RED, alerting me they had been opened. A quick reset and I was back in business and the lock worked perfectly.

    We now have a need for 3 more locks, so I quickly ordered them from Padlocks4Less and they arrived quickly and were the same quality locks I have from my first order.

    I would not hesitate to order these locks from Padlocks4Less again. Having the 4-dials, instead of the 3-dials, makes them that much more secure, so someone cannot quickly guess the combination.
