This TSA (Transportation Security Administration) approved lock is what you need to travel with your expensive gear and keep it safe. This is a three digit combination lock with a special key insert that allows the TSA to unlock. This lock is specially designed by Sportube to work with all their hard travel cases. This cable is 25% thicker than comparable TSA Locks - which makes it more secure and also works better with the Sportube product. If you use a comparable TSA Lock that has a thinner cable, the lock may not function properly. Due to the way the Sportube is designed and the way the inner and outer part of the Sportube slides into each other, a thinner cable can easily become jammed or lodged into the locking rib. This could cause your Sportube to be stuck or very difficult to open. Or this could result in your thinner cabled lock being damaged and unusable.
Why Do You Need a TSA Approved Lock? You want to protect your skis and snowboards while you fly to your favorite ski resort. Keep your gear safe and arrive with all the equipment you packed. Normal padlocks are no longer allowed and only TSA (Transportation Security Administration) approved locks can be used, the Sportube TSA combination lock meets all airline rules and regulations for locking luggage. This unique padlock allows security personel to inspect and re lock your luggage before sending it down the conveyer into the abyss of the airport. It can be used on any piece of luggage to give you that added piece of mind.
Use it with any luggage but this is designed to work perfectly with all Sportube Cases Including:
The best feature about this lock is that it is TSA approved. Turning the tumblers can be a little tricky because of the small size. It's very easy to learn how to lock and unlock.
This is my first experience with a cable lock of this type. It was strange as I found I needed to get the cable near perpendicular to the lock. Any slight angle and it was difficult to rotate the numbers and lock it. However, once I got the hang of it everything worked well.
