Product Spotlight: Pelican and Nanuk TSA Locks

Travel restrictions across the world are easing and the urge to travel is growing. If you are travelling with a case that has valuable contents then a TSA lock from Pelican or Nanuk may be on your pre flight checklist.

TSA stands for Transportation Security Administration. A TSA lock is a locking device that is recognized by TSA authority. Security checkpoints require TSA officers to investigate luggage on a need be basis. TSA has worked with Pelican and Nanuk to develop a lock that can be opened by security officers using a master key.  In the event of a baggage inspection, a TSA officer can use the master key to open the lock in order to investigate the contents of the luggage. If you were to use a non-TSA approved lock, the officer would be forced to cut it.

The Pelican 1506TSA  locks are compatible with almost all types of Pelican Cases - Air, Protector, Storm and Vault cases. It's important to review Pelican case sizing - in particular - the padlock hole diameter.
