Heys USA Group is a manufacturer of travel goods and accessories which also produces resettable luggage locks. Heys includes luggage locks with many of its bags and sells separate luggage locks in travel stores and airport outlets. Heys hardside, softside, graphite frame, TSA, ePac and built-in luggage locks are all resettable. Each has a slightly different arrangement of buttons and parts but shares a basic reset process.

Tips and warnings

  • The United States Travel Security Administration screens every bag that passes security. In some cases these bags are opened for inspection. Special travel locks have been developed by the TSA and lock manufacturers which provide easy access through the use of "master keys."
  • To reset your Heys built-in TSA lock first open the lock. Press the reset button on the side of the lock case with the tip of a pen. Turn the display numbers to match the new combination you desire. Pull the lock open tab (Reference 1).
  • If you lose your Heys lock combination there is no way to open the lock without breaking it.
