3D-printed TSA master keys put travellers' luggage at risk

This TSA approved lock is a bit of a problem in itself. The vast majority of these locks can be bypassed by even amateur criminals very easy. They are made to keep honest people honest, it does nothing against criminals. Most bags that have a zipper on them can be opened and closed back again by a simple writing pen. The combination lock shown here can be opened by shining a light at the side of the number wheel and looking for the flat spots showing at the base. The bad news is even door locks can be beaten very easy and I am talking about very expensive door locks. It would be more work to make the key with the 3 d printer, and actually could lead to your arrest in some areas of the US.
