So, TSA is a short form for Transportation Security Administration which is a government agency in the United States that specializes in airport security. TSA-approved luggage locks are supposed to have a Travel Sentry logo on them. These locks can be opened by airport security, as they have a master key for them. Any other regular luggage lock will be cut or broken if they need to examine your luggage.
So, these locks not only protect your belongings but also meet all the official security standards.
