1. TSA lock

TSA refers to the US Transportation Security Administration. When travelling to the US, the TSA requires access to your luggage for checking.

Hence, the TSA lock was born. Instead of breaking your lock, TSA agents can unlock TSA locks with a master key, and re-lock your luggage once they are done.

Travel Sentry is the company that developed this lock system and licenses it to manufacturers globally. Unfortunately, there have been two loopholes:

  • In 2014, the Washington Post uploaded pictures of the special tools used to unlock TSA locks. Although they have since been removed, thieves are believed to have managed to reverse engineer the master key / tools.
  • Also, TSA locks can be easy to crack, as seen in the video below:

 

 

That said, a TSA lock still serves a purpose:

  • It is not meant to ensure 100% security, but meant to deter thieves.
  • Is lightweight and versatile for use in many situations (e.g. check in luggage, hand carry, lockers, etc).
  • To hold your bag’s zippers together, so that they do not break apart or suffer unnecessary wear and tear from rough handling.
  • If you do not use a lock, travel insurance companies may reject your claims for stolen / missing items.

 

1a. Best value: Sure Lock TSA Compatible Travel Luggage Lock

A highly recommended TSA lock is the Sure Lock TSA Compatible Travel Luggage Lock:

 

>> More details on product site

 

The TSA lock from Sure Lock is the most ideal travel padlock as it comes packed with all the essential functionalities (a 4 digit combination, alert indicator, super easy to use and read) at a great price (USD $6.95 for 1, USD $12.95 for 2, USD $21.95 for 4).

You can try looking, but it is really difficult to find another well-reviewed product with all these features at these price points.

But before we move on, this is our personal opinion on what to avoid:

  • DO NOT USE a 3 digit combination lock. A 3 digit combination lock only has 1,000 combinations. If a thief takes 1 – 2 seconds for every combination, he will only need 16 – 33 minutes. If you number is in the middle, the time needed reduces to only 8 – 16 minutes. On the other hand, a 4 digit combination lock has 10,000 combinations, which means the time needed to crack it is 10 times more!

 

  • Avoid TSA locks with a cable loop lock. Although they are more flexible, there is a chance that they might hook onto something. If they do, your zippers or bag will most likely be damaged.

 

What others have to say

Good lock for travel.

By flyer549

 

Compact, relatively light, sturdy. The 4 number combination offers better security than 3 number locks.

 

I travel with just a carry on and don’t check baggage but sometimes need to gate check bags when on smaller planes and feel the protection is needed. Also, I lock bags when stored by hotel waiting for room availability. Good product.

 

I wanted distinctive colors so that I could find my luggage more easily

By Jim

 

The order was delivered quickly. I wanted distinctive colors so that I could find my luggage more easily and so that I know which lock takes a particular combination.

 

The side view window lets me see the code I have entered much more easily. I can tell whether the TSA picked my bag to inspect. The extra digit provided 10 times more security on a trip abroad than a 3-wheel lock.

 

Nice locks

By RLB

 

Very nice locks. We travelled around southern Africa for three weeks in trucks, small aircraft, and large commercial planes, through airports small and large. These locks never failed and always worked smoothly.

 

Key features

>> More details on product site

 

Most durable lock on market with money back guarantee: Sure Lock uses an ultra tough zinc alloy body to withstand the harshest of baggage handling. The hardened stainless steel internal lock mechanisms won’t rust / freeze up even after years of use.

Peace of mind with inspector indicator: if the TSA has opened your luggage, a button will pop out of the top of the cable lock. This way, you’ll know to double check your luggage for any missing items while still at the airport.

Foolproof combination setting mechanism with four digits: setting your combination which you can change anytime literally takes less than ten seconds and the use of four digits means that your combination is harder to crack and easier to remember.

Works with nearly any kinds of luggage: the standard size of the steel shackle loop on luggage locks is 21.67mm. The shackle on these locks are actually lengthened to 25.67mm. This allows them to better fit hard cases such as Pelican or gun cases.

Easy to read dials: Sure Lock uses a white numeral on a black background. These high contrast dials make reading your combination a breeze. No more squinting or searching for glasses.

2. Portable travel padlock 

As mentioned earlier, a TSA lock is not that difficult to crack.

If you need to secure a locker (in a hostel for instance), a portable safe, a trailer, a motorbike or what have you, using a super sturdy travel padlock will give you much greater peace of mind.

The Stanley Hardware locks which we recommend next are bigger locks, while the one from Desire Tools is a smaller one.

 

2a. Best performance: Stanley Hardware S828-160 CD8820 Shrouded Hardened Steel Padlock

There are two super value for money locks from Stanley Hardware which we highly recommend.

The first is the higher priced, Stanley Hardware S828-160 CD8820 Shrouded Hardened Steel Padlock.

 

>> More details on product site

 

With its hardened steel body, patented keyway cover, dual stainless steel ball-bearings and a 6 pin cylinder, this product is virtually impenetrable.

And all these, for less than USD $50. This is nothing short of a bargain of the century.

 

What others have to say

The BEST at this price point.

By S Heath

 

Found this on a ’10 best pad locks’ article, where this took the #10 spot. For the record, the #1 spot was a $1,500 Sargent & Greenleaf 951C, which is meant to lock the door of a Velociraptor container at Jurassic Park, or lock the twinkie safe during nuclear bomb tests.

 

Anyhow, this Stanley comes with a Schlage high security six pin core with counter milling and some security driver pins. It has a shrouded shackle and anti drill plates with a hardened steel body and shackle. That’s a lot of lock for less than $40. It’s heavy, but not cumbersome. The key / lock mechanism is smooth.

 

I have no doubt it will fend of a wide array of thieves, and last for decades. There is no comparison in this price point.

 

Best lock you can buy for a storage unit without having to spend more than $50! Outstanding lock for this price point!

By Nachtjager

 

It’s the old adage – no lock is impossible to get into, but this one would be extremely difficult to pick and with this hasp even standard bolt cutters would have a VERY hard time with it.

 

If anyone wants to break into a storage unit, they’re not going to waste time trying to defeat this lock when there’s hundreds of other cheapo Brinks or Master locks everywhere else, or those little round Chateau locks that any fifteen-year-old can now pick in about 30 seconds thanks to YouTube tutorials.

 

Key features

  • High performance specification for padlocks: ASTM security grade 5.
  • Protect lock from sawing and cutting attacks: full shrouded, hardened steel body.
  • Protects against drilling: patented keyway cover.
  • Resist pry attacks: dual stainless steel ball-bearings.
  • Anti pick and 15% more difficult to pick vs a 5 pin: commercial 6 pin cylinder with anti pick pins.

2b. Best value: Stanley Hardware S828-228 CD8823 Shrouded Laminated Steel Padlock

The second is the lower priced, Stanley Hardware S828-228 CD8823 Shrouded Laminated Steel Padlock.

 

>> More details on product site

 

This product provides great value for money (~USD $25) – as one user puts it, it has features usually in locks twice the price.

These features combine to protect against sawing, cutting drilling, prying attacks and its 6 pin cylinder makes it much more resistant to being picked.

 

What others have to say

This is a great lock at a great price

By W. B. Glenn

 

This is a great lock at a great price. It has features usually only found in locks twice the price.

 

I have heard of some issues with rusting so keep an eye on that. It can be re-keyed and I would suggest taking it apart (very easy and quick process, just search Stanley Lock Dis-assembly) and lubricate it to protect from rust.

 

Five stars

Nice lock. Well built and 1000 times better than any master lock I have seen.

2c. Best budget: Desired Tools Padlock – 4 Digit Combination Lock

For a smaller padlock at a very affordable price point, the Desired Tools Padlock – 4 Digit Combination Lock (USD $11.97) fits the bill perfectly.

 

>> More details on product site 

 

To us, the Desired Tools Padlock is the perfect portable travel padlock solution.

Super affordable, secure (4 digit combination), sturdy and durable (zinc alloy and plated steel), very easy to use (clear instructions) and read (raised numbers), easily fits most travel needs (e.g. lockers at the hostel, gym, portable safe, etc) and there are many colors to choose from (for your preference, or to make your locker easy to spot).

We have to reiterate again, never get a 3 digit combination lock. A 3 digit lock only has 1,000 combinations. If you take 1 – 2 seconds to test every lock, that’s 16 – 33 minutes, and if your code lies in the middle, the time needed is cut to 8 – 16 minutes.

With a 4 digit combination lock however, there are 10,000 combinations, which means 10x the time is needed to crack it.

The Perfect Size, Durable, Great For Travel

By AmazonCustomer

 

I traveled with this lock for 3 months in Europe. I was worried about finding a lock whose neck might not fit in small locker outlets, while also being big and durable enough to secure my things.

 

This lock fit in EVERY locker I used in every hostel. The lock is also very durable and I had zero issues with it. It is the perfect size for a sports locker or travel and I would highly recommend it.

 

Durable and easy to use Padlock!

By Long-Term Product Reviews by projectV

 

I’ve used several padlocks before and this so far has been the best. This feels extremely durable and built with great materials / mechanism. Specifically, a common problem with padlocks is overtime, when turning the combination, the gears would wear and eventually, creating new combinations or using your already existing combo can easily break. This does not seem to be the case with this one.

 

I purchased two separately although I wish they had a deal for a 2pack, that would be great! Nonetheless, this has fared well so far, no signs of rust yet with this lock but will update in the future!

 

solid lock

By Milena

 

I have used this lock for ten years with my RV Travel Trailer. I use it to store extra keys to the trailer doors, truck door and ignition. The lock is attached to my propane tank to which I have access without a key. The lock is sheltered but does get some road mist during rain day travels.

 

It has worked perfectly for over 70,000 miles. That’s a lot of vibration and jostling for any key safe. Highly recommend this key safe for travelers.

 

Key features

4 digit code allowing for 10,000 combinations: if a thief was to test every combination and require 1 – 2 second for each, that will take 166 – 333 minutes, 10x more that of a 3 digit combination lock.

Ease of use: numbers are easy to read, maneuver, set and reset to your own personal code.

Warranty: 60 day money back guarantee & 3 year warranty.

3. Luggage strap

Luggage straps serve three really useful functions:

a. Prevent accidental opening of luggage. You do NOT want to lose clothings at the start of a trip, or expensive souvenir at the end. If you are using an old luggage / luggage on the brink of failure, this is a huge lifesaver.

b. Help you spot your luggage easily, and prevent others from taking yours mistakenly.

c. To secure multiple pieces of luggage together, making it easier and more convenient to move them around.

However, we believe there is no need to get a luggage strap that has a TSA lock as an additional safety measure, as the strap can be cut / loosened and the lock can be picked.

Instead, using a hard shell luggage which already has a locking system + a normal strap + not storing any valuables inside your check in luggage will be more than sufficient.

 

3a. Best value: BlueCosto Long Cross Luggage Straps 

The BlueCosto Long Cross Luggage Straps is a cross luggage strap which we highly recommend.

 

>> More details on product site

 

The cross strap nature of the product ensures a more secure hold and can act as one more layer of deterrent to would be thieves.

For the quality of the materials used, this product comes at a great price point of USD $7.99.

 

What others have to say

my bag is getting pretty beat up

By Cathy

 

Made my very basic black wheeled bag stand out from all the others in the airport.

 

Also, my bag is getting pretty beat up, but not bad enough to pitch it and replace it yet. These straps gave me extra peace of mind just in case my zipper would break. I will be purchasing another!

 

Protects your suitcase!

By RJT

 

Very affordable and reliable, my only regret was not getting more.

 

I have a suitcase that was ruined from one of my multi destination trips. I was worried that my suitcase might give up on me before I get home so I got this to secure it and I was glad I made that decision. This is just as good as the other brands but cheaper.

My daughter’s hard cover suitcase opened during the baggage process

By Hillary P

 

My daughter’s hard cover suitcase opened during the baggage process on her last flight (the zipper had separated) and the airline baggage handlers had to carry it from the back room of the baggage area bulging open. So, I thought I would give these a try on the next flight.

 

We just took another flight,and sure enough, her suitcase had come undone again. However, this time, her bag was on the carousel and all of the contents were intact because it was being held together by these straps. I will never take another flight without using these.

 

Great buy!

By Mac Lover

 

I’ve taken 6 trips using the same 2 belts and they look good as new. I also love the ID info tag visible while on the bag!

3c. Best fashion: ORB Travel Luggage Strap

If the standard kind of black, plain luggage strap bores you, then the Heavy Duty ORB Travel Luggage Strap with Quick Connect Buckle is the perfect luggage strap for you.

 

>> More details on product site

 

The main attraction of this strap is that the designs are really unique, which makes it a joy to use for some and also really, really easy to spot even from a distance.

Despite the focus on the design, it has not neglected its basics – it is still made of sturdy materials and is highly reliable in holding your luggage together. However, it costs more (USD $9.99) than the standard luggage strap.

 

What others have to say

Glad that I made the purchase

By llewie

 

The agent gave us the incorrect information and sent us to the wrong carousel, but I spotted our bags 25 meters away on another conveyor belt. Really eye-catching. I’ve seen many straps but none quite like ours, and we’re world travelers. It also is holding well against rigorous beatings.

 

I also only like black bags because I dislike unsightly scuff marks seen on brightly colored suitcases. And with every other bag in black, anyone can misidentify yours. I also like the double duty it does to help hold the suitcase together. Going to buy a couple more some before Amazon discontinues them.

 

That’s mine! – The best part of the Baggage Claim

By Jenn Mottram

 

There’s nothing worse than the tired, overstressed crowd at the baggage carousel. Everyone wants to see what is coming close and no one is willing to let others in and there are bags and people and children and everyone really just wants to get home.

 

Black bag after black bag comes down and no one really knows whose is whose until the last possible second. The people aren’t going to let you in to check if this black bag is yours or if that one is.

 

Seeing my bag come down with this strap, though, I call out, “the one with the green ‘Mine!’ strap? That’s mine!” and people will move aside so that I can drag it off and go on my way. Not only is it strong and useful and secure, all great qualities that I’d expect, but it also makes my life a lot easier. That is worth its weight in gold.

3d. Best for attaching additional items: Travelon Bag Bungee

If you are a frequent traveller with lots of luggage, travelling with family, or simply find it tiring lugging luggage and backpacks around, then the Travelon Bag Bungee is the item for you.

 

>> More details on product site

 

The Travelon Bag Bungee is a brilliant contraption, allowing you to carry more with less effort at a super affordable price (USD $11.45).

It attaches easily to the handle system of any wheeled luggage item, including single pole or double pole handles and secures a second bag to the handle. The two items move as one.

You may find cheaper, generic versions of this item elsewhere, but we highly recommend you not to get those.

The generic versions generally use thin bungee cords. This means that the heavier the luggage / bags / objects which you are securing, the less likely the bungee stops will stay in place.

On the other hand, the Travelon Bag Bungee has much thicker cords to keep the stops in place as well as a sturdier bottom piece, which will prevent your luggage / bags / objects from bouncing around during transit.

 

What others have to say

Where has this been my whole life!!!

By Donna M. Weigel

 

Outstanding! First, there are instructions right on the bungee how to strap it on in case you forget, not that is is hard. There is a pinch and snap in clip that goes around the handle of the bottom suitcase. There is then a stretchy bungee and a harder plastic part that will slide over your handle.

 

What I like is the center band that holds the bungees together can slide up and down the bungee adjusting to where you need the extra support. I can easy put a bag and a coat SOLID on top of my other case. It then sticks to the bottom case like it is part of that case. You can life the whole thing as one unit. No sliding off. I wish I had this for years!

 

Better Than an Extra Pair of Hands!!

By Maletchs Mommy

 

We picked one up before our recent 9 day international vacation. Our family of 4 (2 small children = we took a lot of crap). Of course with our kids being little, they can’t carry much. So my husband was wrangling most of the luggage in between porters, while I needed my hands free to keep the kids close.

 

This gadget more than came in handy.. I don’t how we ever travelled before without one?

 

Works like a Dream! I love this. Saves My Back (Almost 50yo woman) and Easy to Use.

By DS

 

Best little contraption ever. I’m getting older, inching toward 50. Carrying a bunch of stuff isn’t fun when your departure gate is far away. I buckle this to my rolling carry-on, then pull the elastic around my personal bag (usually big enough to fit small purse and electronics), then bungee this bad boy to my suitcase’s handle.

 

Works like a dream, flexible, and has saved my back from lugging a large back. Wish I’d found it sooner, as I travel a lot.

 

Key features

Carry more with less effort: the Bag Bungee allow two items to move as one.

4. Cable ties

There are travellers who use cable ties instead of TSA locks for check in luggage.

This is because some feel that TSA locks are not worth it – they can be easy to break into and sometimes, lazy TSA agents will still cut TSA locks instead of using the masterkey.

So if an agent wants to check your luggage, they can just the cable tie which costs just a few cents. It can also be a deterrent for thieves who do not have scissors readily available.

However, what most travellers don’t realize is that cable ties can be used for so much more! For instance:

  • If your luggage’s zippers are spoilt, simply tie a cable tie through it.
  • It can also be used as makeshift shoelaces
  • A cable organizer
  • Camera mount
  • Makeshift bicycle snowchains
  • A first aid splint
  • Or even as handcuff restraints!

 

4a. Best value: TR Industrial TR88302 Multi-Purpose Cable Tie (100 Piece)

For travellers, we highly recommend the TR Industrial TR88302 Multi-Purpose Cable Tie 100 pieces (USD 5.95), which represents superb value for money.

Be it organizing wires or making punji sticks these zip ties do the job

By Henry Baffi

 

Cable ties produced and sold by this company are astounding. You can secure WWII gun emplacements to a turtles back and fire round after round it wont slip off. The colors are completely astounding.. You have the choice of two styles. Black nylon and Semi Opaque white nylon. For this case I needed black though white would have done.

 

I used those to tie bundles of trimmed branches together to ensure my son in law stepped onto a punji trap I was making for him. That’s what he gets for parking in the lawn. Sorry I digress… I expected when he pulled the bundle out of the ground and out of his foot that the skewers would fly everywhere since the tie would slip.. nope ..Held on.. Now I can use it again if he pulls the stunt again.

 

Great for hanging targets.

By John Scout

 

Great quality and strong. I use them at the range for mounting targets and needed something that could mount steel targets on chains and handle high-powered rifle round impacts.

 

After one session of shooting steel plates these immediately replaced paracord for hanging targets forever. Recommended for serious use.

 

Tons of small ties for the price and they’re pretty good quality

By options.BatchSize

 

Tons of small ties for the price and they’re pretty good quality. I use them for various purposes around the house, primarily cable management. If you’re tying up a lot of thicker cables you may want to opt for something a little bigger or longer. These are small ties best suited for the keeping your smaller electronic cables tidy rather than thicker base cables (e.g. power cords to televisions, music patch cables).

 

Another good function is keeping travel bag / luggage zippers secured in lieu of putting TSA locks on everything.
