The TSA003 is a widely-recognised luggage lock that Transport Security Administration officials can open using a special key during luggage screenings or other security searches. The lock opens upon entering a four-digit code using its four rotating dials. It's recommended you change your TSA003 combination for maximum security if someone outside your circle of trust discovers the code during travel. You need your existing TSA003 combination before making changes to your lock combination.
