TSA Case Lock with Extended, Looped Style Shackle for Specialty Cases

Steel 1/4" Shackle is Three Times Thicker Than Most TSA Padlocks

SearchAlert Long Shackle Heavy Duty Case Locks let you know when your equipment was inspected at the airport. 

The CCL SearchAlert Combination Long Shackle Case Lock features an extended looped  1/4" shackle for use with cases where clearance is not sufficient for standard TSA case lock.  This new CCL extended loop Transportation Security Administration (TSA) case lock was made specifically for heavy duty cases – specifically firearms, electronic, or other cases that are checked as airline baggage.  

These case locks will only fit case clasps that have an opening to fit a 1/4" shackle.

Airport TSA Approved for Checked Luggage

The TSA now suggests you lock your checked baggage with TSA accepted and recognized Travel Sentry® Approved locks.  This lock features the required Travel Sentry® mark that meets the requirements of the TSA.  Airline check-in staff are trained to recognize the Travel Sentry® mark so they understand that case and luggage locks with this special mark is permitted to remain locked. 

When you check a travel case at a U.S. airport, it is sent through an electronic screening process for inspection.  If a TSA Agent needs to search it, the agent will use a federal government protected override device to open the TSA accepted SearchAlert lock. TSA employees no longer need to cut your locks or force the bag open and risk damaging it. They simply open your locks, inspect, and re-lock your bags, sending them quickly and securely on their way. 

Airport Approved In Most Countries

The Travel Sentry luggage security system is in use at hundreds of airports around the world. The system has been implemented at every U.S. airport including overseas territories such as the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and Micronesia. Travel Sentry Approved locks are officially recognized and accepted by the US Department of Homeland Security's TSA and by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in the U.K.

There are Other TSA Accepted Locks on the Market - What Makes These Different?


There are many other types of TSA accepted locks (usually cheaper) on the market today. What makes this lock different is that it features a three dial combination lock, as well as its patented SearchAlert Window. 

When a TSA agent needs to check your luggage and uses their override device on the lock, the SearchAlert patented Security Window changes from green to red.  Once they re-secure the lock, they cannot reset the SearchAlert window and it will stay red in color.

Once your case or luggage arrives in baggage claim, the SearchAlert feature tells you  if the lock has been opened outside of your view.

If the locks SearchAlert window is "red" upon arrival, the traveler needs to open the luggage to see if a TSA Notification of Baggage Inspection has been placed inside.  If no notification is found the traveler should check to see if anything is missing or if something has been added to the travel piece.  This should be done at the Airline Baggage Claim office.
