The Sesamee® TSA cable lock with entry indicator is TSA accepted. Equipped with a convenient 3-dial, easy-to-set combination of your own choosing, this luggage lock has a flexible cable, allowing TSA screeners to inspect and re-lock baggage without damaging the lock. Its flexible cable also resists abuse from airport luggage handling equipment and is built with a 1-1/8 inch (30mm) wide durable metal frame. The Sesamee® travel cable lock’s unique status changing window alerts you if your lock has been opened with a TSA secured tool, or by an unauthorized person using a counterfeit device.


How SearchAlert® Works

The new SearchAlert® re-settable combination padlock offers two unique innovations in luggage security:

  1. SearchAlert® may be opened with a secured access device controlled by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents. No SearchAlert® lock should be cut off by TSA agents.
  2. SearchAlert® features a patented Security Window which changes color from Green to Red when any secured access device is used.

The Security Window shows Red under the following conditions:

  1. Luggage checked at an Airport is sent through an electronic screening. If a TSA agent determines the luggage needs to be hand searched, the SearchAlert® lock will be opened by the agent. When the TSA secured access device is used, the Security Window changes color from Green to Red. The Security Window also changes color from Green to Red if a counterfeit secured access device is used to open the SearchAlert® lock.
  2. If a TSA agent hand searches a piece of luggage, the agent will leave a TSA Notification of Baggage Inspection in the bag. If the SearchAlert® lock Security Window shows red, and no official Notice of Baggage Inspection is found, the traveler should take the luggage to the airline's luggage claim office to determine if anything is missing, or if anything has been added to the luggage.


Set your Combination

This TSA cable lock is preset at the factory to open at 0-0-0. To reset your SearchAlert® combination lock to open on your own combination follow these simple steps:

  1. Set the dials to 0-0-0
  2. Using a tool of choice (example: ball point pen) press and hold the reset button on the bottom of the lock all the way down. Rotate dials to your desired new combination. Be sure to record your combination and store in safe location.
  3. To test, rotate dials to an incorrect combination. Cable should remain locked and release button cannot be pressed in. Turn dials to the new combination and press release button, cable should unlock.

To reset combination turn dials to existing combination, then repeat steps 2 and 3.


About Travel Sentry Certified Locks

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.

  1. Perfect for backpack 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on Jul 13th 2017)

    I've tried many brands, this is the best. The numbers are high-contrast, so easy to read in dark hotel rooms. The TSA-alert shows when TSA has used their key to open your lock. The flexible cable fits through 4 zippers at once. Very easy to use. The button makes it easy to unlatch when you've entered the combo. Simply awesome!

    Cable instead of shackle on this lock. Prefer over shackle since it is easier to attach and lock

  5. Like the security window feature 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on May 15th 2015)

    Best feature of this brand is the security window that lets you know when TSA uses their key to access my bag. Got 6 of this cable version for flexibility of use on our different luggage types (zippers). Shipping was fast (same day) and we got it a couple days later. Had a question about the lock when I bought it and online chat was very helpful and professional.
