Safe Skies and Conair Corporation Enter Licensing Agreement Bringing TSA Recognized Luggage Locks to More Consumers

August 8, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 8, 2019--

Safe Skies, LLC, a leading TSA recognized luggage lock company, has entered into a patent licensing agreement with Conair Corporation, dominant, global leader in consumer products across multiple categories. The mutually beneficial and long-term agreement will enable Conair to offer its customers industry-leading, patented, TSA-recognized luggage locks and will give Safe Skies brand awareness among a broader customer portfolio. Conair® luggage locks will be sourced by Safe Skies going forward. Safe Skies® patented locks are among the most reliable, stable and safe in the industry.

Safe Skies® Locks display the proprietary torch symbol, allowing authorized personnel, including security personnel and airline personnel, to easily identify these special locks and then unlock and re-lock the luggage using a secure, special tool, if a physical inspection is required. Using Safe Skies® locks provides passengers with the peace of mind that their luggage will arrive at their destination locked and intact. In addition, Safe Skies master tools are manufactured in the United States. With one of the industry’s most comprehensive selection of combination locks, padlocks and luggage straps, Safe Skies and Conair provide travelers with a vast array of baggage protection to choose from.

“This licensing agreement with Safe Skies ensures our customers can rest assured that the luggage lock they purchase from us is TSA recognized, meaning their bags can be opened and relocked by authorized personnel when inspection is needed,” said Jim Schwab, Sr. VP, Conair Corporation.

“Travelers lock their luggage for protection and expect their bags to arrive in the same condition they left them in at check-in,” said David Tropp, Founder of Safe Skies. “We are really excited to cooperate with Conair. Our patented technology makes it safer and easier for authorized personnel to perform physical inspections, something travelers appreciate, which is ultimately what brands like Conair are looking for in their travel products and we are anticipating other brands to follow suit.”
