Setting a TSA snap lock with a red handle

A TSA click lock with a red handle is a type of lever that can be recognized from the little red lever on the inside of the lock. In this article, I'll tell you how to easily set the combination of this lock step by step. Note: you won't receive a key, as only airport customs have one.

Setup in 6 steps

  1. If the number combination is not yet 0-0-0, set the number combination to 0-0-0.
  2. Press the bar on the lock so that the snap closure opens.
  3. There is a red handle or clip on the inside of the lock. Press it down or slide it aside if it is a smaller clip.
  4. Set your own numerical code. Remember it well.
  5. Push the red handle or clip back to its original position and close the lock.
  6. Test the new code by entering your own invented number combination.
