The Transportation Security Agency has approved certain locks to be used by passengers to secure their luggage against theft of contents. An investigation by the author has determined that these locks are not designed to provide any measure of security and should not be relied upon to do so. Each of the mechanisms that are examined in this report can be easily bypassed without any special tools or expertise, often in a few seconds. Detailed photographs within the report allow a thorough understanding of the TSA 002, TSA 003, TSA 004 and TSA 005 locks.
