Am I allowed to lock my checked luggage while traveling to and from the US?

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