Sesamee SearchAlert® Looped Shackle TSA Lock

Comes with a Black or Pewter Finish and 3-Dials Give You up to 1,000 Different Combinations

The only TSA case lock that lets 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!

Setting the TSA Case Lock Combination


This combination lock is set at the factory to open at all 0's when aligned between the arrows as shown in Fig A above. 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. See Fig B.
  3. Hold shackle depressed and turn it 90 degrees (quarter turn) in either direction as seen in Fig. C. 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). See Fig B, pull out the shackle and turn pulled out shackle half way around (180 degrees) and push in (see fig A). 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).

NOTE: If you would like us to set your combination for you, go to the accessory tab and select that option.


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.

  1. Horrible Quality Locks 1 Star Review

    (Submitted on Aug 29th 2017)

    Bought locks because they looked stronger than my current TSA approved locks. 3 of the 4 locks I purchased for my Gun case broke . That's right . TSA agents told me when I picked up case I needed to replace immediately before I got on a connecting flight.. These locks should never be sold to anyone who might have valuables inside or firearms..

  2. Reliable 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on Jul 31st 2017)

    Bought 15 for pelican cases and they have all held up exceptionally well. Business is expanding and I need more locks, these are the best on the market.

  3. Durable Bag Lock 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on May 5th 2016)

    Needed a lock for Pelican bag - heard mixed reviews on these locks and bought one anyway. It's holding up well so far. It's a very sturdy lock and does take a lot of abuse when traveling.

  4. Durable for the size 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on Jun 26th 2015)

    Saw a prior review where the lock busted. Have owned two of them for a couple years for my Pelican cases. One of them finally got destroyed. They have held up well, after all those cases are heavy and get a lot of abuse! I will be buying more. No other TSA lock works as well as these on my cases that require the shackle clearance.

  5. Great travel lock 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on Apr 8th 2015)

    The larger looped shackle is a nice touch which works perfectly when traveling. The combination is easy to set and use and I've had no issues with this lock. It has been a great purchase.

  6. Prone to damage, Junk! 1 Star Review

    (Submitted on Apr 24th 2010)

    Used 2 times... Damaged 2 times. These locks are prone to damage where the locks are not solid cast, but two-piece. The two pieces separate and I ended up cutting the locks off my case full of costly wine. Total junk! I would have given 0 stars if I could. Save your money and buy a keyed lock.
