Unlock luggage lock sales with new TSA range from YALE

Security specialist ASSA ABLOY has introduced a new range of Yale TSA travel padlocks, designed to help retailers meet demand for luggage locks that allow US airport officials to carry out security checks, without damaging locks or bags.

The affordable range of TSA Luggage Locks® (Transportation Security Administration) incorporates a special security feature from Travel Sentry® that allows security personnel to open, examine and re-secure bags, without breaking locks, zips or luggage linings.

Five different locks are available to suit different bag sizes and styles, and each has an easy-to-reset 3-dial combination padlock.

The range includes a cable lock with a flexible steel wire shackle for securing multiple zips, a clip-on lock for smaller bags and an ID-tag cable lock, complete with identity tag and sliding cover to protect the address details.

A standard combination padlock and extendable strap lock are also available, both of which have a red inspection indicator, which rises when the lock has been opened.

Ian Stamps of the ASSA ABLOY Merchant Sales Team comments: “Airport security has increased significantly over recent years, making flying a more stressful experience for holidaymakers. The TSA range is designed to reduce the hassle for travellers and airport personnel alike, as well as providing peace of mind that luggage is safe and secure whilst in transit. We predict this product will be popular with anyone travelling to the US in particular and will help to boost sales during quieter trading periods.”

The locks are available in a choice of bright colours for easy case identification.

Recommended retail prices for the Yale TSA luggage locks range from £7.99 for a combination padlock to £11.99 for a luggage strap.
