Worldwide: TSA masterkeys released as a 3D printer blueprint, compromising security of TSA locks.
The integrity of more than 300 million travel locks has been compromised after 3D printing files for a range of master keys were posted online. In other words, if you have a luggage lock with a keyhole for the authorities to use (saving them from smashing open your padlock), people can now print their own keys to open your bags. A number of amateur 3D printers have printed the skeleton keys using the blueprints, and posted photos of their successful attempts at opening Travel Sentry locks on social media. A quick search also turns up more high-quality images of the seven master keys. More information available here: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/09/10/tsa_master_key_blueprints_leaked/

How Securoseal Protects.
Strap your suitcase closed, seal your zips and keep a numbered receipt.
Stronger than 2x your maximum check in weight. Securoseal stays sealed.
Tamper evident technology helps you detect a tampering event.
Highly sensitive tamper indication with a unique identity number. Tampering in any direction will create a void tamper pattern.
load bearing seal.
Strong enough to hold double the maximum checked weight limit for luggage. Once sealed, tampering in any direction will cause the surface to fragment.
Isolate zips with a single use cable tie. Includes an internal ‘one way’ metal sealing device. Numbered & bar coded to match the unique identity number of your seal. Once sealed, attempted removal will leave tamper evidence on the cable tie.
Each seal is marked with a unique identity number and includes a tamper evident receipt that is adhesive. Keep the receipt with you to verify the identity number of your seal.
At your destination, your seal can be released without cutting tools. Use of this function will leave tamper evidence on the buckle.
