Am I allowed to lock my checked luggage when traveling within the US?

The United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has the right to open any checked piece of luggage traveling within the U.S.  TSA encourages passengers to use a TSA-approved lock, which can be opened by TSA agents with a master key without damaging the lock.  Otherwise, travelers can either leave their luggage unlocked or run the risk of having their non-TSA approved locks damaged.
