I don't know if these 'TSA-authorized' locks are integral to the case, or
like any other 'TSA-authorized' lock you can buy.  The reason I bring this
up is that we lose a couple 'TSA-authorized' combo locks every year.  Some
TSA grunt sees it, can't figure out how it works, takes a cutter to it and
sticks on an explanation/apology tag.

I figure that the percentage of ordinary suitcases that get opened and
manually inspected isn't that high, so it's my conclusion that the special
TSA locks are a gross failure as far as we consumers are concerned.

Carry-on is the only way to take anything you care about.
